Wow I have not updated this blog in awhile. I've been crazy busy and just plain forgot. Let's see updates on us:
Homeschooling is going great right now. I'm amazed each and everyday at how much my kids are learning and I love to watch how they just get it sometimes. We are starting our Halloween unit this week and the boys are so excited. We also read 5-10 books every night before bed. This has become a very popular event in our house and each child has their own favorite books. We use the library to try out new books and buy ones that we really like.
Me- Didn't win at the Davis County fair for my picture but I learned alot. I was going to enter a picture in the Utah State Fair but totally spaced the entry date. I was also going to enter a bread but decided not too. I've been canning like crazy for the past few weeks. I did pickles, corn relish, pickled beets, sliced peaches, peach pie filling, frozen peach preserves, applesauce, and apple pie filling. Last week I hurt my leg and I'm slowly starting to recover.
Nathan- We gave up on teaching him to read right now. I can't find a phonics program that he enjoys and I'm not much for forcing a child into something they just don't get. He is still a huge Buzz Lightyear fan and wants everything he can get that's related to Buzz. His speaking skills are getting better but his eating is getting worse. I'm thinking of maybe putting him back into eating therapy.
Noah- What a character! This kid is a hoot. He just loves life and loves playing. He loves his wah wah (his twin) and his dogs. He's always going out of his way to take care of the dogs. He's so close to potty training but just doesn't like to stop doing anything to go use the potty. He does throw huge temper tantrums when he doesn't get his way.
Zachary- What can I say, he's a very demanding child. I lose my temper with him all the time. I think maybe he should have been an only child. He's just as big of a Buzz fan as his older brother.
