Allie's first diaper change.

I should have given her a poopie!!

Major Achievement

Emily accomplished what every baby must acheive soon after they become mobile. No, I am not reffering to pulling up nor am I reffering to walking. No, this is one that is often overlooked but major in the world of babies. Emily made a huge discovery hiding place for pots and pans!!!
What, I'm not doin anything!
Ok Ok! You got me!
But I don't care cause it's so much fun!

Peek A Boo

She reminds me so much of Allie as a baby. This brings me back to about five years ago when I did this with Allie.

Saturday, February 4, 2012


So I woke up today and realized something. My children are gone. My children have been replaced with imposters. My Allie should not be reading and spitting out addition facts and coloring inside the lines and setting up movies and the wii all by herself! My Allie should not look so grown up and act so big girlish. My Joshua should not be talking so fluently and entertaining himself for hours at the time. My Joshua should not be brushing his own teeth and picking out his own clothes. My Joshua should not look so grown up and act so big boyish! My Emily should not be crawling around and finding herself in every crease and crevice. My Emily should not be old enough to give me attitude when she doesn't get her way. My Emily should not be trying to make me laugh or be playing peek a boo. So I wonder, where are my children. What have these imposters done with them? If you find my children, please don't tell them what I am about to tell you. Please don't tell them that I love these imposters every bit as much if not more than them!

She's Everywhere She's Everywhere

Field Trip

We had a wonderful time yesterday on our most recent field trip. Gail Hall, a precious friend of mine who also started homeschooling this year, and I brought the kids to Dauset Trails and Indian Springs yesterday. Dauset Trails has animals from otters to bison. We had such a good time that we kept the party going and brought them to Indian Springs. It was nice to take a day off from the phonics and numbers aspect of school and just have fun! Of course we made them read the signs and tell us what they said and we talked about educational things, but I don't think the kids even caught on to that. We just had a ball.

On a side note, guess who finally started crawling!!! I will have a video on here soon of my little Emibear crawling everywhere. It was like one day she wasn't interested in the least about crawling and the next day she's everywhere!! We were all cheering for her and making a big deal about it and she just looked at us like we were crazy and crawled on her merry little way!

My Little Helpers

Joshua loves to help me clean. The only bad thing about this is he loves to use my vinegar water to clean everything. He used about a whole bottle in the bathtub and I do not have to tell you what my house smelled like when he was done. They helped me vaccuum, straighten up and babysit Emibear. All the while I was grinning thinking that when I actually need their help they will run as fast as they can to get away from me. That's ok, we'll burn that bridge when we get there! As of right now, they are my sweet little darlings that love to please their mommy! And  by the way, does Joshua not look like my brother Adam in this picture!

David and Goliath

So we learned about David and Goliath last week in bible class and instead of the curriculum music I used this good old school hymnal hym. And yes, they make these motions when we sing this song in church!

Hello all of you Unbelievers!

I know you all believed that I would never blog again but I proved you wrong once more!!! I seriously don't know how busy mothers find the time to blog on a daily, or even weekly basis! Hats off to you people and to all of you who look at my blog, that just aint happening!!
Everything is going great! After about three weeks about freaking out over wether or not I am quipped to be a homeschooler/home maker/cook/nurse/laundry girl/toilet cleaner/poop wiper/bottle maker/I mean need I really say more, I have settled down again into our little routine. I have enjoyed this month so much and feel incredibly blessed to have all three of my little hens under my wing. Now as for next year, don't know yet. But, this year has for the most part been incredible and I am so thankful for the opportunity and the results of our efforts. Allie is doing so well and Joshua is even chiming in a little bit these days. Emily is still a complete distraction to all of us. She is the cutest thing under the sun and absolutely demands attention. I swear everywhere we go people try to steal her from us. She is so mild, easy to please and adorable.
I won't even try to recap Christmas other than to say it was awesome. The kids loved their gifts this year and all of our favorite part was going to Florida for the week. So good to see all my peeps down there and cried like a baby when I had to leave. Allie cried halfway back to Florida. I think she has a crush on her cousin Luke and her and Emma just hit it off this year. We miss you guys so much!!
Well, Emi is calling me in there. I will leave you with pics!
