Only 15 more days to spend with hubby

243749015941_0_0So very sad. I don’t want to tell my husband good bye. How will I ever make it not having him around for 12 months? Who will keep my feet warm at night? Who will drive me crazy like only he can? Who will watch the kids while I take a quick shower? Who will handle CJ when he just won’t listen and is driving me nuts? lol Who will remember to put the leftover dinner in the fridge? Who will take out the trash? There are so many things I will miss about my husband being around, to many to mention that’s for sure. Ugh I’m so not looking forward to telling my husband good bye. Sometimes I hate the military!

Box Day!

box 001

The Sonlight website likes to call the day your boxes arrive, “BOX DAY”. Well yesterday was our Box Day! YAY! As you can see from the picture, the kids were very excited and even little Kristopher down there on the floor was interested to see what all the fuss was about. We had a blast pulling out all the fun books, workbooks, and other material. Of course the kids wanted to start immediately, but I had to talk them into waiting until today. So today as promised, we started Home Schooling. What fun we had! It was a little rough at first, trying to figure everything out and what order to do it all in. But we managed to survive our first day with all smiles. The only thing that drove me nuts was when they would say, “What’s next? What’s next?” like a million times. LOL!

Our family portraits hanging on the wall

pics 006You remember all them beautiful family portraits we had made at Olan Mills back in December? Well we now have them hanging beautifully on our living room wall, for all to see. I bought the picture frames from Wal-Mart. I think it turned out great! What do you think?  The picture isn’t a great one, the best I could do though. They are centered on the largest wall in the living room above our couch. Since we are moving soon, I’ll sadly have to take them down. But when we get our new home I can hang them up again! :D

Homeschooling Again!

I’m so very excited! So are the kids! How wonderful that my children are so excited about me being their teacher again. I ordered an awesome Sonlight Curriculum. It is a Christian company specializing in literature-based home school curriculum programs. I was able to customize this coming year for each of the girls. I plan to even start CJ (my soon to be 4 year old ) with his own curriculum in a few months! Our school supplies should arrive Thursday afternoon and I’ll have the fun of organizing it all and be ready for our first real day of home school on Friday. For now we are working in some work books the girls had from last year I had bought them and we are doing some reading. Friday can’t get here soon enough!

I Won a Giveaway! Go Me!

natalie_doll_accessory Over on Chefdruck Musings, a wonderful lady by the name of Vanessa was hosting one of her Sunday Giveaways for a chance to win a Friends Forever Doll (retail value $89.00) and I WON! Go ME, Go ME! So I had the chance to pick which Friends Forever Doll I wanted and I chose Ms. Natalie (pictured over on the left), isn’t she just adorable? The girls are really going to enjoy her I’m sure. Hopefully they don’t fight over her instead. lol. Each 18-inch doll comes with The First Day of Forever Book, jacket/shawl, and a purse or backpack. These dolls were the winner of the Dr. Toy 10 Best Educational Products of 1998 award. What a great way to start off my day by winning a Giveaway! I just had to share! :)

Appointment drama

Cassie had an appointment this morning at 9:20am at the Clinic (I thought). We arrive and go to check in and the lady informs me the appointment was at the hospital and not the clinic. The hospital? What hospital takes appointments for a medicine refill? UGH! Well I have never been to the hospital and had no clue how to get there. So I had to call my mom back home to get her to check on the Internet for an address. (Thank you MAMA!) So I finally get to the hospital and get someone on the phone about my screwed up appointment and the lady informs me that I was put down as a "no show" and the lady at the clinic that checked me in should have called the hospital to let them know I had gone to the wrong place. Keyword "should have", that crazy lady at the clinic was no help at all. She wouldn't give me the address to the hospital and all she told me was I was at the wrong place and that I needed to go to the hospital for the appointment. No help at all! But thank goodness the lady at the hospital was very kind and understanding and made my daughter Cassie another appointment for tomorrow at 1pm. At the hospital! Yes, I know where it is now! I even saved the address on my GPS. So wish us luck we get to the "right" place tomorrow on time.

Sorry I haven't been around much to post, but its just been busy around here. I'll try to get our Christmas pictures up tomorrow ;) Until then, Happy New Year everyone!
