The hubs and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on New Years Eve, by taking the day to hang out without kids and going out to eat at a nice place. It was wonderful and much needed!! I love my hubby and spending time with him, no other place I rather be, than next to him!!!
We continued school break here this week, so I did some school planning for the next few months, at the rate we are going, we will finish up mid May! Though I am looking at doing language arts curriculum during the summer months. Abigail wanted to do school during Christmas break, so we did do some Christmas themed LA worksheets and art classes. So I know she will want to continue during the summer too. I am thinking the following school year when Aidan is done with preschool, we may do more of a year round school and take some breaks here and there throughout the year at different times, one of the perks I love about homeschooling, being able to schedule around our life schedule and seasons. I am thankful I was introduced to it a few years ago, from a wonderful family that babysat for us in Texas and for God leading us on this path! God placed it on my heart a few years ago, by placing those people on my path, and having friends that homeschool has been helpful in this journey we are on. I do believe most anyone can homeschool if they want to. It's similar to teaching your children other things they need to do to grow up (I think it is easier then potty training, ha!), it takes being committed and dedicated to doing it. In addition to spending time planning, I do research on curriculum, learning styles, and finding deals on school supplies. I read books and we are involved in homeschool groups, to learn with others. Homeschooling has really grown in numbers the last few years http://www.educationnews.org/parenting/number-of-homeschoolers-growing-nationwide/
New Years resolutions, none really here as I don't really believe in them. I do want to be more intentional with my time and being a light of Jesus to those around me in everything I do. This is just something that needs to be done daily!
