Woman with few words!

I know, hard to believe, but I just don't have anything to say this week. So, I thought I would post some pictures from our weekend. We had a blast!

Camping!

Yesterday, my husband and I took our kids camping for the first time. Yes, we have been to cabins before, but this time we stayed in our tent we just got from a friend of ours who did not need it anymore. So, we loaded up both of our vehicles and were on our way. Well, not really. We did load up our vehicles, but only Tim and Joyona went up to the camp site. Me and the boys stayed because Tra had football practice and we just could not tell him we were not going to go. So we met them up after practice, which means we did not get there until 8pm. Oh well, it was fun anyway. Ate lots of food, stayed up late, did not sleep very good, got up when the sun came up... I could go on, but I won't. Anyway, we had a great time. Did not really have any troubles and I think I would go again. We drove around and found a couple of sites that we would like to go to instead of the one we had. Actually, next time we go camping we would like to go with more people because we think that would be more fun. So, if I can figure this out, I have a video of the kids to share. If not, I will post some pictures :)

Day 3....

This week has not gone like I had hoped for. I am not concerned or upset, just not thinking straight. I knew it was going to be a short week as I had the opportunity to spend the day with a friend in her new house yesterday, but I forgot about an eye doctor appointment today, and we are going camping tomorrow night. Ugh! Oh well, it is still early and it is going to be a good year. I have to keep telling myself that my schedule can and will change and that is part of the reason why we home school. I need to stay flexible with myself and our schedule too. They good news is that I now know why reading has been a struggle for our daughter, her eyes are not working together all of the time. So we have some eye exercises to do for the next two weeks and will get them re-checked to see if it is better and what we need to do from there. Our son, the football star, needs glasses to help see his school work a little better. He was not excited at first, but picked out a very cute pair of glasses. I will post pictures when we pick them up. I must say, he is adorable in them, and did not want to take them off so they could make them. That encouraged me. So, this week is pretty much done for me, but we will pick up school again next week and press on with a smile on our faces :)
