Random Update

I've been meaning to sit down and write for quite some time now, but I've been highly preoccupied with teaching and crafting, that blogging has been put on the back burner.

Found at a thrift store for $1. Repainted.

Leah lost her first tooth about two weeks ago. Milestones!

The kiddos started their first and third grades earlier this month. We're already on Lesson 16. I was going to start teaching them in September, but we've all been so restless that I decided to go forth a month early. Earlier lessons means earlier summer break means no school on two birthdays. I've got two vacations planned out (Disney and Christmas), so hopefully everything goes smoothly.

"Spin us!" "Don't spin us!" "Why aren't you spinning us?" "I'm scared!" "I'm hot." "Let's live here."

As for crafting, I've decided to jump into the yarn, fearless, and create something difficult. I'm making the kids a sweater, hat, scarf, and mittens EACH, and hope to be finished before September. So far, James' sweater is half-way finished and I just started it two days ago. I brought Zac and the kids with me to Hobby Lobby on Saturday and the kiddos picked out their own yarn colors (which, interestingly enough, are the same colors I had in mind). We had a nice brunch at Cracker Barrel and were sad that the weekend didn't last long enough.
