homeschool, the braves & mommy’s knight in shining armor

Mommy successfully made it through our first week of homeschool! And today we start another day. Super excited about tomorrow because it’s SOMEBODY’S birthday in our “class”…and we all know when you homeschool that your students birthdays can look way different than in a typical classroom:). It’s going to be fun. We’ll start the morning with a mommy rap…I’ve been practicing (sorry–that one won’t be videoed…but if you are a good friend of mine you know exactly what that looks like and how funny it is;)

In other family news…

…Christy Elphick and I had two planning nights this week for Created for Care…getting ‘er done! SO EXCITED.

…Daddy took all the kids to the Braves game…and they were all surprised with free jerseys when the got there:) Fun.

…Took Frank and Laney to Trader Joes. Frank threw a complete fit on aisle two and then had to sit in time-out in the gluten-free corner. Nice. I needed breathing treatments to get me through the grocery with a 2 year old;). BUT we were offered some comic relief when we walked in the house with our groceries to find a knight practicing for battle with his big brother and daddy.

Here are some pictures of much of the above for friends and family:)…and for those of you who just have to see what the little knight looks like in his armor:)

Y’all have a great week!

I just started following your blog, but I am truly interested on how you found information and chose what program to go through to home school. I have two kids, hoping of a third by the end of the year and I am stressed about what is the best type of schooling for my soon to be kindergardener. She just turned 4 in April and was moved into the 5 yr old room in July after she past all of her 4 yr old testing with 100%.
I am torn about where to send her for her to have the best education and to be challeneged. What didn’t you like about private school?
