Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness

Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness was the hymn of the day today. That's sons hymn!  We sing it to him as a lullaby whenever we put him down for a nap or bed. It lulled him right to sleep in his carrier 😊

Daughter has started singing whenever I say "Son needs a nap". 

Anyway, we served the treats at church today so I got some cute pics of Son while Daughter was in Sunday School.

Last call for the beach!

We went to the beach today with two other homeschool families. We regularly have play dates with one of them but it was our first time meeting the other family. They also use MFW and they love it. I got some insight into the future if we stick with MFW curriculum. We all had a blast!




Son ate sand... and splashed around a lot. There was another baby there so they got to play together a bit. 

Daughter had fun building sand castles, playing in the water, and swimming with all the kids. 😊

8 months!

This not-so-little man is 8 months!









He loves being outside, eating, baths, grabbing animals (we're working on that, that cats are much more patient than poor Mookie), and his sister. 

He has 8 teeth and is already cutting some molars!  

He crawls around everywhere!  He's so fast!

He's starting to walk while pishing rolling things. 

He walks along furniture. 

He smiles a lot!

He weighs 26 pounds!

He's very curious and into everything.  Puts everything in his mouth. 

Loves his family and is so loved!  He's such a blessing 😊

Homeschooling fun!


She loves the learning toys!


My Fathers World (our curriculum) calls for lots of outdoor play each day. 


Watercoloring the ship for Voyage of Discovery! (MFW pre-k)


We made "a" with our play doh. 


We made the play doh ourselves as part of school 😊
It's working out really well to do the indoor curriculum while Son takes his morning nap. Then we can all head outside for some learning games and free play!

I am having a blast!  I didn't know I'd have this much fun!

Sand box fun


Daughter is making "ice cream". Son wants some!


No brother!  You don't really eat it!


Mmmm. It's good ice cream, sis 😊

First day of pre-k!

Today was our first day of homeschooling using Fathers World pre-k curriculum. I love it!  Daughter really got into it by the end. Plus she was able to tell daddy what she learned in school today!  






She had to put normal clothes on to go to the library for the eclipse party (they provided free NASA glasses!


Then we met up with cousins to go to DQ for a first day of school treat 😊

Extended play date!

One of my oldest friends came for a visit fora few days with her kids. It was so much fun! Daughter was so excited for them to get here for their sleep over that she was watching out the window hours before they were due 😊



















We all had such a blast! Usually the whole family comes for a weekend in the summer with a couple other family friends, but this summer it just didn't work out. So she just came up with kids during the week (we could hang, just not the hubbys)
