MY BABY TURNED FIVE TODAY!

Nathan turned five today! I can't believe he is getting so big. They really do grow up fast. It seems as if it was just yesterday that he was a little baby who would never stop crying. LOL
Now he is a big boy who wants to be just like his daddy. He does everything he can to be just like him. He wants to wear the same type of clothes, he fixes his hair just like him, he wants to wear the same type of shoes, everything just like his daddy.
It is too cute.
He loves school. He loves to do math. He never lets me forget if we did not do math that day.
He is in pre-k but he loves math so much that he is halfway through his kindergarten book.
In case you didn't know, we homeschool and I enjoy it very much, as do the children.
We are really blessed to be able to homeschool and I thank God that my husband and I are in agreeance on the decision to homeschool.
I realize that their are a lot of couples out there that are not in agreeance. I have too many friends that would love to homeschool and their husbands do not.
I pray for those who are in these situations and I hope God will open those husbands eyes to the option of homeschooling.
Well, I guess I better go to bed now.
My little baby is growing up and I can't wait to see how he changes over this next year.
Goodnight and God bless.

We Are Moving!

A few months ago my husband came home and told me were were moving.
I was shocked! The weird thing was that I was ok with it. For a few months before that I had really been feeling like I wanted to move to land. If you know me well, you are probably cracking up right now. I know, me, land?
Ya right.
I know, but hey, when God wants something he can do it, right?
So, anyhow, he came home one day and told me we were moving to LAND!
So now we are in the process of getting our house up for sale and will soon be putting it on the market. I really hope it sells fast because I am ready to move. We have a really nice house but the thought of land is much more appealing. We are hoping to build though, so if that happens, I will post pictures of the whole proces. How fun!I never thought I would want to move back to the country. We moved from the country because we wanted to be in town. So it is ironic that we want to move back after only 3 years, but that seems to be the case. So, now we are going to move back to the country and we are going to get farm animals! LOL
We are hoping to be able to get our daugter a horse soon. My son wants pigs though, and I definately do NOT.
I am excited to start this new journey. I am looking forward to starting my own garden and making homemade meals and getting back to a simpler life. We are going to get cickens and let our daughter take care of them and sell the eggs and have her own little business. I think that will be a great experience for her.
I can't wait for my kids to have their own animals to take care of and give them some responsibility. I know it will not be easy and it will be a transition for us but it will be good for us.
I will keep you updated on our new journey!

They are more than just lapbooks. They have lapbooks, colorful ones at that, but they also have unit studies, copywork, handwriting sheets, (A Beka and Handwriting without tears styles)

They even offer completed lapbooks for those who love lapbooks but may not have time or just don't want to assemble them! How cool is that?
All right, get over there and get to lapbooking! LOL
