SO while all the local kids are heading back to school, we’re heading to the home school class room… also known as the blue room.
last week we got our official letter from the county letting us know they have lizzy listed as a home school student. HOW EXCITING!! we worked on a school mascot and motto and have been getting used to our very busy schedule. by the end of the day, we’re both tired. lol
my crockpot has been getting more use… it’s a great way to have dinner ready to go when we get in at 6:30-ish rather than cooking and eating at 7:30. today i’m doing an italian crockpot chicken with root veggies. the boy has been obsessing about bread making, so he’s been in the kitchen the past 2 weeks making loaves of bread. home made bread is just so-o good (especially when it’s fresh out of the oven). speaking of fresh- we have been trying out a local harvest delivery service. they deliver organic fruits and veggies every week to the house, it’s pretty cool so far and the fruit has been gobbled up by la petite.
speaking of lizzy, she’s been having fun with home schooling. kindergarten has been a lot of hands on and stuff. she’s been excited to do more reading which is an added bonus! she’s also been loving her dance classes. she’s learning a lot with the new class structure and i think JAZZ is her thing!! lol jazz and ballet… she wants to do lyrical and hip hop, but we have about 2 years before she can take those classes. her cartwheels and backbends are also getting really good, soon she’ll be doing walkovers!!
in other non-dance related news, bambi turned 8 last week. last night she had me a bit worried. her tummy was gurgling a lot and she didn’t want to sleep in the other room… so being the good mommy that i am, i slept on the sofa with her all snuggled up next to me and that seemed to make her feel better.
yeah ALL my kids are spoiled.
