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.

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.

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!

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!
