Hey there…happy hump day! I had a pretty laid back day today. Atticus has had a little bit of a cough lately, so today we stayed home. I was supposed to go to work, but that’s the joy of working with family! I had a headache when I woke up and just took two Excedrin about an hour ago. I’m hoping I will wake up in the morning headache free!

School was awesome today. We started off with some art. My husband should definitely be our art teacher, but hey…it’s Pre-K/Kindergarten! I can’t be that bad, right? A few years from now, he needs to really take that over. The boys are doing so well with school. Bonus is really catching on and I’m so proud of him for how far he’s come in the last few months. When we started he had trouble with the alphabet and messed up on his counting here and there. Now he is right along side Atticus in every worksheet that we do. I can’t give him enough credit. It’s so sweet to see his face light up when I say “Bubba, you did so good!” It’s just precious. I feel lucky that I am able to see them learning AND be the one who is doing the teaching. When the school year started I was stressing out. I put so much pressure on myself and thought there was no way I could give them the education they needed. Wrong! Home school is awesome and I wouldn’t change it for the world. My boys are smart…I know that. They are learning at their own pace, whether that’s faster or slower. It doesn’t matter. We are learning and we are having fun at the same time as a family. I love it and the boys love it too. Even Bonus said today, “I like school!” When we first started the year he hated it. He hated sitting down at the table…he would rather be playing or something else. Now he’s the first one to the table. That’s cool! I feel like I’m at least doing something right. Thanks to my husband who told me I was capable of doing it when I was crying and stressed out. I almost….ALMOST…put them in public school, which I’m sure would have been fine, but I’m so glad WE decided that home school was right for us. Yes…it takes time and patience (which some days I have more than others) but it’s worth it. I love them boys so much.

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Hello friends. It is officially November! Holy smokes….time is flying by. There is only 52 days until Christmas. 52!!! This is nuts.

I did a lot of work today. Not around the house. I’ve had dishes in the sink for 2 days now and they really need to get washed. I worked…did school…worked….worked….finally showered….took the kids to a movie….and back to work! Very fun and productive day.

We went to see Free Birds in 3D with Granny and my little cousin Trey. It was a cute movie, but we didn’t love it. Trey fell asleep for most of it and the boys were ready to leave an hour into it. It wasn’t really a great 3D movie. If you do see it in theatre, just shoot for the regular show. It’s not worth the extra money.

The Die Cut Crazy Holiday Blog Hop started today! I hope you have checked it out. The ladies have put together a lot of neat projects for everyone and there’s even prizes!! Everyone loves prizes! Make sure and take a look!

Hi again! Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday with the family. We had a lazy day today and it was nice. Both kids stayed at grandmas house last night, so we slept in a little later than usual. Jeremy cooked homemade chicken noodle soup for lunch…it was delicious! I’ve been stuffed all day. We had to make a quick run to the grocery store and saw the sweetest little boy selling lemonade on the side of the road. We stopped and grabbed 4 cups of pink lemonade. It was surprisingly good!

We’re trying to get the boys back on their sleep schedules since school starts Thursday. We let them stay up later than normal this summer and it’s hard getting them back in routine. They are excited for school and I’m also ready to get started. We are homeschooling and I plan to share how our first day goes. Any of my followers homeschooling? I’d love to hear about it!

The boys rode bikes today as Jeremy and I went on a walk. We took a nice drive around town also. I enjoy the time I get to spend with my family. Family time is so important to us.

As long as I’m with my family…I’m a happy camper.

Well readers…I’ve got a few things that need to get done before we get to bed.

As I mentioned earlier, I hope you all had a fantastic day today.
