I prefer my blog to be raw and honest and transparent, so that's where I'll begin.
Right now I'm boiling my diva cup and drinking ice water from a large water-bottle.
Our household is on the mend after a virus has swept through this weekend, causing havoc and causing me to call off (a newborn session) for the first time since I can remember when.
Lots of veggies, snuggles, warm blankets, water and the occasional tylenol for a fever that is more than uncomfortable. The boys have already kicked the bug with their young immune systems that went into overdrive.
As we wait for Spring I've been stocking up on my reading lists for the year. I've been digging deep into homeschooling and we have decided to get our feet wet.
Tomorrow is our first homeschool gym session at the local Y. Jack will get to swim for an hour with other homeschoolers his age and then spend an hour in the gym with them. I've even buying a book off one of the other Mothers I've met online in the co-op.
I hope it is a good fit for us. I'll give it several shots. Sometimes the path is right when the timing is not. While I believe first impressions are important, I think follow up impressions can be just as powerful.
Today I'm finalizing our list on Amazon for our curriculum for the Spring/Summer. I'm excited to share it soon with you all.
Jack is still in preschool, so next fall he will be prepared if we decide public schooling is best. Right now he goes twice a week for 3 hours, and he loves it. His teachers are amazing and we feel right at home there. He even has his eye on a girl, ha! And he begs me stop if I mention her.
We've talked to him about homeschooling, his thoughts are... "If I get to swim then I'm all in!" He's very excited about the homeschooling program that our Y hosts weekly for the school year.
As for the rest of the family, we are doing well.
We're cooking more at home and spending more quality time together. We've been talking about family projects when the weather gets nice and we've been talking more about faith.
We hope to travel later this year and save up for a used Jeep. We want a fun vehicle we can drive at night and see the stars! We also need a 4-wheel drive for the winter months here in Ohio, a lesson we learned the hard way.
My business is booming and the pace is exactly where I'd like it to be. Word of mouth referrals are the best. We are all interconnected and it's a beautiful thing. Google search doesn't hurt either ;)
We are blessed.
As I sit here with diarrhea, lol.
We are blessed.
