It's almost here...

There's only a few more weeks of school left!

I'm really looking forward to the summer break. (The break...not the heat!)

I love having all the kids home so we can stay up late and sleep late. I love playing games with them and hanging out at the pool!

I'm about to successfully finish a whole year of Home Schooling! I never thought I would home school any of the kids. I didn't know how parents did that. Even with it being one of the worst years our family has ever been through Spencer still will finish his school year on time. That feels like a real accomplishment to me. We've had to double up the work a lot of days to make up for all the time I was in Ft. Worth with Miles, but we've done it. For the most part it has been a wonderful experience. I've been thankful to have so much quality time with Spencer. It hasn't all been is not one of Spencer's favorite things, although the kid is a genius! The alarm clock is not his friend! I think maybe if we had school at 7:00 in the evening instead of the morning then he would like it a whole lot more. Unfortunately that is NOT possible around here!

Now Jocie totally wants to home school. She likes the idea of hanging out with me, cooking and getting her school work done quicker. We're not planning on doing it this coming year, but I'm not ruling it out forever. There's something very special about homeschooling.

So, it's my plan to enjoy these last few weeks of schooling although I'm ready for the break! I want to savor this time that Spencer and I have together before all the kids are home all day.

That's so sweet!! I too love homeschooling. My kids are my pride and joy. I feel like I really know Christopher. I know all his likes and dislikes and I feel like we have a great relationship. I hope y'all have a great rest of the school year.
