This Week

We are here in Dayton this week.  Today we have a dusting of snow over sleet and it is cold.  The kids and I have been bundled up here in the apartment doing some school. 

We have been working on cub scout achievements for Samuel, doing puzzles, playing games and reading.  It has been relaxing.

This weekend we are planning to get out and visit the Cincinnati Museum at Union Terminal.  The girls and I also hope to visit a Super Jo Ann Fabric store.  It will be good to get out and run around a little.  Even at home in NC we tend to be homebodies more lately.

It has been nice visiting here and we will hate to leave, but we must go back to North Carolina Monday.  Hopefully, in a couple of months at worst, we can all be living under the same roof again.  We are trusting in God's timing and His plan.

What a beautiful day we are having here in North Carolina!  It is near 80 degrees and sunny!  I know we have not had nearly the hard winter that some have had to endure, but I still welcome the warmth and the sunshine.  It really does do one's perspective good.

I sent the kids outside right before lunch to play and fixed them a little picnic to eat outside.  They really seemed to enjoy it. 

We have had a good week of school and are looking forward to next week because we are traveling to Ohio to see Grandparents and Daddy, too!!  We are staying all week.  We are taking some school with us and plan to visit Union Terminal in Cincinnati while we are there.  We also may find something else educational to do.  We are going to be flexible.  I know we will be taking books and games and will continue our Bible reading.  I believe it will be enough. 

This Saturday is Samuel's Pinewood Derby.  It is his first and he is looking forward to it, but doesn't really know what to expect.  I'll try to post some pictures.  His car is a "shark".  It is blue and silver and has a big fin on top!

Hope you all have some sun today and enjoy your weekend!

It has been a while

Hi there!  Yes, I know it has been a  L O N G while since I posted anything.  I do apologize.  Life sometimes demands that we make choices and I had to choose to take care of other things. 

  1. We had the Christmas holidays and my husband got a new job. 
  2. Which meant he had to get ready to move @ 11 hours from us. 
  3.  Which also meant that we needed to get our current house on the market and get things de-cluttered and sorted. (still working on this)
  4. Right before he did that I took a part time job typing legal transcriptions which I just gave up almost two weeks ago.  (just couldn't get the hang of this)
  5. Then there is school which I really needed ( still need to ) focus on more.
  6. We also had some traveling to get my husband settled into his new apartment and for us to look around the area.  Which is Dayton, Ohio by the way. 
  7. Along with these excuses we also had everyday life to accomplish.
Enough of the excuses.  Life has been busy and will continue to do so.  I may not post often, but I will try to post more often.

 We are doing well in school and are already looking at curriculum for next year.  Of course, I am trying to make some lists to take with me to the Mid-West Homeschool Conference!  We have our tickets and are excited!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day.  May you spend it with the ones you love!
