Yesterday was a first for my family.  Instead of sending the kiddos out to the local school, we kept them home.  Well, sort of.  We went to the dentist and doctor, and did math on the beach. 

We are officially homeschooling, and yesterday was our first day!  I decided I wanted to give the kids a memorable day for their first.  We packed our beach bag and a school bag and beat a path to the sand.  The weather was perfect, the kids were enthusiastic, and I was pleased with our first day of school.  We are running a light schedule this week, as I am still waiting for some of our materials to be delivered.  I highly recommend doing math at the beach.  The sand was our chalkboard, and the waves gave the kids great motivation to finish the work quickly!

Let's play catch up!

I thought I'd pop in to say hi to the approximately 1.75 people who read here! :)  The first thing I noticed was blogger has made changes.  Hopefully this will make it easier to use!

Some members of our family had a little drama a few months ago, and I was hesitant to post or make any content public, just in case it tracked here.  All that seems to have blown over & I am feeling better about it.

Princess Leia is still "out west", and has decided to stay for her junior year of high school.  We had the pleasure of some good visits, and she thrilled us with her new learner's permit. I've taken a few days off from work this summer to just play with her and the other two kiddos.  It has been so much fun!

We've celebrated numerous family birthdays, plus a few other occasions.  Cinderella was baptized, and a new baby cousin's impending arrival has been told.  Some health issues have been dealt with, and new career possibilities are still promising.  We have made some changes for the kids, as we will be homeschooling this year. 

All told, we've been busy doing life.  And life is good.
