Is it Saturday already?!








Have you ever had one of those weeks. You know where it seems like you never sit down and there is always something or some one that needs your attention. Well, that was my kind of week! I have been so Super busy, that I feel like it should be Wednesday, instead of Saturday! The good thing about weeks like that, is usually the following week feels a lot slower, even if it's your normal routine ;)












In Home-Schooling news, my oldest has been learning how to break down lager Math problems, into smaller ones. A skill that will help her as she progresses into Middle/ High Grade level and of course College. Hard to believe she is almost in middle schooler. I have already been already preparing for next year lesson's. In fact, I already found a Great middle school writing program.
My youngest has been hard at work too, learning all of his sounds. Today, I found some free educational games (apps), off our new Samsung Smart TV. Love that TV :)




                  Until Next Time...

Lazy Saturday




Today, has been one of those "lay around in your Jammies" kind of a day. Those type of days, are nice to have, every once in awhile.
My other half and I, spent most of the day on the couch, catching up on our TV shows. Thank Goodness for the invention of the DVR ;)


My kids love their electronics. So, for most of the day my youngest was either on his 3DS or on the computer. He just loves to play free games.
My oldest was also busy on her new tablet that she got for Christmas.
If it were not for all those Awesome internet safety for kids features, I would not allow her to be on so freely. Thank Goodness for them too!



Until Next Time...

Turning 75!


Yesterday, we threw my Grand-mother a 75th Birthday Surprise party. I did not relies how much work went into party planning until now! Trying to locate all the people to invite, sending out invites, calling people who ignored or forgot about the RSVP date, and of course decorating. However, I think the hardest part of it all was making sure my Grand-mother did not find out. She is one smart cookie, but we managed to fool her ;)




                                                  Here is a Picture of her Cake

It was a Great party, we were afraid we would have thunderstorms all day, but thankfully the rain held out until the party was over. We had about 60 guest's, mostly family. It was so fun getting to see cousins that I had not seen since I was a little girl. I know my Grand-mother enjoyed visiting with her family and getting to see all of her siblings ( She is one of 5 kids ) and her children, Grand-children, & Great Grand-Children ( She has 5 kids her self, 6 Grandchildren & 6 Great Grand-children )


In other news last week, the kids have been using a new online Science program. So far I am really liking this program. Last Tuesday, I watched them do their Science in motion lesson and I even found it interesting ;) 
Whether your new to homeschooling, or not, and are looking for a Great Science curriculum, you should check Science4Us out!


Until Next time...

Happy 2014

                                  


So, it has finally arrived, 2014 is here! Our family, celebrated like many, I am sure.We all stayed up to watch the ball drop on TV.



My daughter asked, like many years before, when we will go to New York and see it in person. I then, always give her the same answer; When you grow up, you can go :)
We also have a tradition, that we do every year, we play games. This year was CLUE. We also buy sparking grape "pretend" champagne to drink and of course
Yell!        & give each other a Kiss!

Afterwards, before we get ready for bed, we sit and talk about what our New Year's Resolution's will be.
Mine is, to decided what I want to be, when I grow up.  I have been going back to college for a couple of years now and I planned on a Degree in OTA, but I am now wondering if that is the best route for me to go, career wise. So, I am taking a break to figure out what my next step will be.

My husband, his was to get more rest, like he needs any more ;)  

My daughter's was to see China McClain in concert.

My son's is, learning to read. He is doing really well for his age, and is not far off from it, but not there yet.
So, this next year, I will be carving out some extra time for more reading lesson time, in our homeschooling schedule ;)


Until Next Time...
