Enjoying Childhood

I love this picture. Kender made his own little "relaxing spot" up on his windowsill. You can't really tell from the picture, but this window is pretty high up there. It's taller than me, and I'm 5'8". So Kender climbs his way up there with his pillows and that's his little spot. When I was a kid, my favorite spot was in the tree in my front yard. I remember climbing up and laying in the hammock-shaped branches. Back then, that was my happy place. Now, my happy place is my family. Moments like this are the ones that make me truly happy.

Friday Homeschool Follow Up

This is my first (and possibly last) Friday Homeschool Follow Up. 

This week was not as structured as I intended (see more on that in Our Typical Day Homeschooling). This was a much more chaotic and relaxed week in terms of routine. At first I was really frustrated that the week wasn't going perfectly like I wanted it to, but then I realized that I was missing the whole point.

Our Typical Day Homeschooling

I want to start being more organized and better about keeping track of our progress with homeschooling. We will be taking Fridays off from here on out, so I'll be using that time to go over how our week went, and posting the highs and lows here on the blog. It shall hereby be known as my Friday Homeschool Follow Up!

Mushy Gushy Love

Ryan is the best. He does so many little things for me to make me feel loved, in addition to all the big things like not getting mad at me when I bought a fancy new laptop. He does all sorts of little things like letting me hang out in our room and set up the new laptop while he takes care of the boys and does the dishes, or adding something to the shopping list that he knows I need. He works so hard to provide for our family so that we can build our house, and so I can stay at home with our boys. And he's ok with my Dr Pepper habit ❤
