Well here it is... What in the world we are doing this year. I have felt like for the last several years I fret, read, pray, fret, read blogs, worry, self-doubt, PRAY HARDER and then decide what curriculum we will go with! Well this year I took my husband out to dinner to have a much needed conference if you will. It was quiet and we could really talk out our plan for the next year. At the end of the night we knew what we wanted to do. We decided to go back to Sonlight. We love the books! However, after doing MFW Adventures I learned a great deal about notebooking. I will incorporate that into our Sonlight. M 2nd Grade Sonlight Core B with MOH1 (Bible,History, Read alouds). Science Apologia Creation Series Astronomy. LA/spelling/Reading Sonlight. Math-U-See Beta.
I am super excited about our schoolroom this year. Our schoolroom is our dining room turned schoolroom. I love it being next to the kitchen.

My big L is doing "real" school he says this year. I can't believe this is his Kindergarten year. He is so excited to be doing more school.
I know I talk alot about how wonderful my man is, but one more thing. For my birthday this year I was given some birthday money and I knew what I wanted to spent it on. However, I was just a little short. Hubs came through for me..... So to most people the gift I wanted may not make you want to jump and down and scream, but for me that is exactly what I did when he said "order it and I will cover the difference." Drumroll please.... I got a year subscription to Ottobre magazine. Ok for most normal folks that don't sit and read sewing blogs, Ottobre is a sewing magazine from Finland. Each issue comes with 40 patterns. Yes, 40 awesome patterns for my kiddos ranging in all sizes. So I am getting 7 total for this year (that's 280 patterns!!!). Here are some cute shorts for E. They are Pufferfish from Ottobre 3/2012. I used some cute red buttons from my Mama Bonnie's button box. All the more reason why I love these:)

This is a nightgown for K that has been on my sewing table for...ev...er! It is princess flannel she picked out at one of our many trips to Joann's.
I absolutely love the way my husband takes time with our kids. This time it was K's turn to go on a date with Daddy. Chick-Fil-A was having a Daddy Daughter dinner complete with Cinderella horse drawn carriage ride. I love this pic because she had just gotten ready, and as usual went to find her Daddy for his approval. She was kind of sad that he was no where to be found. I did convince her that he would be back. What she didn't know is that he had ran out to get her some flowers.
