I have to admit I have the fever...the homeschool fever....I know it's just because my besties are doing it but it's ok for me to get into what they are into even if it's not all the way...right?

I have my concerns about our school district. My concerns, I believe, are valid but they don't start for at least another 2-3 years. So far my son has had a great experience...he's in 1st grade! I will say that his self esteem is usually the highest when he's with the kiddos of the besties mentioned above.

So you ask...half do you homeschool half way? I have bought the reading and math K curricum from A Beka. I'm going to teach my 4 yr old to read and add. We are also going to have structure, bible time (that's been lacking---my fault---and not a good think to be lacking), story time, homemaking time, etc. So we aren't going in full fledge but I'm going to do enough to know whether I could do it full time-if the need arises.

I have been thinking alot about the pro's lately and they are beginning to out way the negative but I can't say it will ever I'm just going to live vicariously through my besties!

Misunderstood Words

So I talked to the Mom of the friend from the previous post. I wasn't going to but something came up in a conversation and I felt like I needed to tell her. It really bothered her. We talked...she got off the phone...had a talk with her son...and called me back.

He had gone to all the lifeguards asking WHY? Why can't L do this? Why can't L do that? He's 7!!!!!!!!!! He's strong and not afraid! WHY?? This friend just wanted L to be able to do the same things he was doing. So he was just voicing his frustration to me but I didn't understand by what he said.

Both me and his mom felt so much better!

My son is the oldest of most of friends but the shortest....I sure hope he doesn't get my genes!

Why is parenting so hard?

My boy had a hard day! It's sad for me when he has such a hard day. We went to the waterpark with some of his close friends from school. Sweet Boy doesn't swim well but loves the deeper end...he also wants to slide so bad. I made him wear a life jacket if he went to the deeper area...not good for a 7 yr old ego. He also is only 47 7/8 inches and you have to be 48 inches....all his friends are much taller.

He came over to me and said ____ pushed my head under water. I went and talked to the boy b/c he could have really hurt my sweet boy. I told him not to do that anymore b/c L isn't as good of a swimmer as the rest of them. I was nice...this is one of the boys that I feel like I can say things to if need be...he proceeded to tell me that Logan can't do anything and he's 7. Momma just walked off b/c it broke her heart.

Hopefully his heart won't break like mine did!

Summer is Almost Over

This has been one awesome summer!

We've been to Nashville with friends, Disney with the family and Mexico just the 2 of us. I've spent many a day working out,laughing and gabbing at the gym with my Besties. We've had fun at the Waterpark and just hanging around. Now we officially have 1 1/2 weeks until school starts.

We've bought school supplies and get our teacher letter in the mail tomorrow so it's upon us. I'm ready...L is not ready....A is ready but she's also just in Preschool.

I've got plans to be disciplined this year with my time...I have a goal to have Addison reading my the end of the year(she so wants to be able to read)...I've also committed to being PTC Vice President...and continue working out with my Besties!

And MOST importantly....More Time for me in the Word with My God...More time in the Word with my kids...More quality time for me and my Man!!!!

Those are my goals for the new school year...we'll see how they go!

Hope you all had a great summer and have a great school year
