My Yearly Post

I haven't posted since last August and so much has changed!  We now have another little girl who looks almost exactly like Ladybug in my sidebar ;)  Seriously, twins born 2 years apart!

I sometimes think about blogging.  I think it would be great to document our journey and special to look back on it, but...time.  Not my strong suit.  Time management is something I struggle in!

SO, to update:

Little Girl is 5 now and getting ready to start part time Kindergarten in a couple weeks.  We are going to do some homeschool  in the afternoons.  We are using My Father's World Kindergarten curriculum.  Mr. Man is tagging along as he sees fit.  We do this during the 2 little girls naps.

Mr. Man is 3 and going to go to preschool 3 days a week at the same school as his big sister.  On his mornings off (2 days a week), we are going to do some before Five in a Row which I am so excited about!  Ladybug will be tagging along as she sees fit.

Ladybug is 2 and we will doing Tot School while the biggies are in school.  We are using a combination of Letter of the Week Preparatory Curriculum and this new website I found called Let's Tot School.  I used Letter of the Week with Autumn.  The emphasis isn't actually on letters (misleading title!), but it has a weekly theme and I use the theme to find fine motor activities and fun books.  It really is a lot of fun!  Between LOTW and the Tot School website, it will be about 30 or 45 minutes a day of "mommy and me time"...I think.  We haven't started yet so we'll see.

Then we have a new little miss!  Maybe Little Miss should be her nickname on here :)  She is 10 weeks old and a sweet, snuggly thing.  She will be just held a lot and kissed a lot and hopefully will be awake during some of our read aloud time.

I sure do love my little family.  It's stressful at times and my house is pretty much always messy, but I try not to let that get me down.  It's a season.  Before I can blink, I will have big kids doing all my household cleaning anyway, right?!  My husband will be deploying soon and I can't really let myself think about that or I cry.  But ready or not, it's happening soon.  Even so, I am blessed to be his wife and so blessed to be a mama.
