First day of school.... two out of three are happy.



After home schooling for these past two years, I've finally decided to do a little something of a mix between home school and public school. My kids are doing a charter school that has a multiple age program, smaller classrooms, elective days and one day off a week for home school. I think this will be a better mix for me.

Although, from the pictures you can see that my oldest wasn't happy about his first day but the younger two were thrilled!

Family and the Great Outdoors


I LOVE the mountains!
After a nice little picnic together, my husband took the kids for a walk along a trail and let me stay behind near the river. It was so nice to just breathe in the crisp air, listen to the rushing water and silence all around...It was wonderful!





Summer Fun



I just love these pictures! My little 3yr. old is so cute in her bathing suit!

Favorite Things


Old duck feathers, empty egg shells, Styrofoam plates, paint and strings....
these are a few of his favorite things.

My 2nd boy loves to make stuff out of whatever he can find.
He does it all on his own without any help from me. He's so innovative. I love it!

Show me the loot!





On the 30th of July, my husband came back from his 8week internship in DC. Of course the kids were very happy to see he brought them all gifts from his ventures.


Daddy also came back just in time to celebrate my oldest boy's birthday. Can you guess what he wanted his party theme to be?

Fat Lady....

My 8yr. old daughter drew this picture of a fat lady. She giggled while explaining the drawing to me...

"it shows how the lady grew so big that her legs got weak and wobbly. Finally they gave out completely until she fell over and couldn't stand up anymore."


"M" is for Monkey

My oldest daughter loves to climb! She shimmy's up door frames, hallways and poles so fast, it's amazing! Hence the reason I like to call her "a little monkey."
