This would be one of those days

... that I'd like to call my mom and complain.  Some things haven't gone the way I'd like them to and I need to vent.

Day 3

I did another day of shred and found it much more challenging than the first two days.  I'm hoping my stamina improves as I continue.  Today I am also throwing in a 6 Km walk to a park (and back).

Day two

of my workout plan.  My sister said it gets easier after day 4... we shall see.  I'm looking forward to when my Turbo Jam comes in the mail for something new to add to my routine.

Just one of those days...

Yes, the school work was completed... not without some prodding and encouraging.
Yes, the bedrooms got cleaned... eventually.
Yes, I squeezed in a workout... I'm not in very good shape.
Yes, I baked... that's my stress outlet.
No, I did not clean the bathrooms... maybe tomorrow.
No, I did not get to go to the park... again, maybe tomorrow.
No, I did not begin potty training... she won't go to kindergarten in diapers.

... I guess there's always tomorrow.

Good morning

How I love to start my day.  A cup of freshly ground Starbucks coffee {their house blend}, poured into my favorite sweater mug.  Adding just the right amount of French Vanilla Creamer and a pinch of sugar.  Yum!

Tuesday Musings

I've been slacking on the blog end of things lately and it was actually my husband who brought it to my attention.  I just haven't felt like anything has been worth writing about.  So in point form, I will simply update about what's going on here:

- Sarah is infatuated with shoes.  A pink pair of Mary Janes to be exact.
- Advil was my friend today.
- I like the tins that tea comes in.  But I don't like loose tea leaves.  Thankfully, Doug does and he happily uses up the leaves and brings home the empty tins.  *love him*
- I love my kids' school, their teachers and the fact that they only go twice a week.
- I love my homeschooling group of friends.
- I love breakfast for supper... or anytime for that matter.
- I wish I knew more about my camera.
- Andrea and Sarah are becoming great friends.
- Arianna is doing so well in school. *smile* 
- After buying another pair of shoes (on clearance) for Sarah, I think I know where she gets her love of shoes from...
- I have only spent one day at home alone with Sarah since school started.
- I would like to scrapbook more.
- Doug and I have been doing biweekly breakfast dates.  It is such a refreshing time to catch up on each other.

Her own sense of style!

The pink shoes
The new purple shoes
Such a good big brother

Off they go...

... to school.  I am SO glad they are only gone twice a week.  I'd miss them terribly!  I do feel blessed to have access to a program that I can home education 75% of the time and have them experience a traditional school as well.  Anyhow, here's the pictures of my munchkins ready for their day!
Starting the day right... with pancakes!
Excited and slightly apprehensive...
Not sure what this look says...
My 10 year old looking SO grown up! 
My 11 year old looking just AS grown up... a young man indeed!
Not so sure yet...
And then there was one!

September 1st...

There's a lot of hype in my social circle as today is when most of the kids return to school.  I say "most" because my own will be home today.  They will go to school tomorrow and then home again on Friday.  In case you are new to my blog or didn't know, my kids go to school part time and are homeschooled part time.  They attend a small school specifically designed for home educators and are taught by teachers on Tuesday and Thursday.  The subjects done at school are Social, Science, Art, Gym, and Music while I teach Math and Language Arts at home on the other three days.  I'm not 100% sure when I will begin the home part... maybe today, maybe Friday or maybe even next Monday.  That's the joy of home education.
I want to be organized this year.  Generally, I don't like to stick to a hard schedule but I'd like to follow some sort of  routine.
My goals this school year are:
  • to maintain a positive attitude towards learning and hope my kids do the same
  • to help build into their lives, a solid foundation that is Christ Centered
  • to make Bible study (reading, learning, living) a daily focus
  • to encourage the kids' potential to the fullest and making them proud of what they do and who they are
  • reading... lots of reading.  I hope that they will learn to love to read like I do
It's going to be a good year.  I have one in grade 6, one in grade 5 and one in grade 1.  Here's to a new year!!
