Well, we are finally on spring break. And, I needed it. It seems like an eternity between Christmas break and spring break. I must admit that this is one of the best years that we have had with homeschooling. We are ahead of ourselves with most subjects, and I really loved my curriculum this year. I made some changes this past year and I am so glad. I changed to a more literature based approach with history ( my favorite subject) and that has been so fun. And of course, to see the changes within the kids is great too...to see their world opening up to them is an experience I never would want taken away.
But, put all that aside...and lets talk about spring break.....aaaaahhhhhh! It's so lovely. I love not having a schedule to stick to...not jumping out of bed when it's still dark outside. Not that we have any great plans. I have weeded my garden...did the second coat of paint on the front of the house...today I think I am going to do some raking. Like I said, nothing too exciting...no trips or special outings. Just hanging out here at the house...enjoying life!

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
