Still Here

I have been the worst blogger ever! Geez, I couldn't even remember when the last time was and when I looked at my blog I was SO ashamed. I'm going to try to do better, but life doesn't seem to want me to share my thoughts. :)Lots has been happening and this post might be a little extreme. haha Don't say I didn't warn ya!

Gracie keeps me busy. I've been trying to homeschool her the past few months. She fights me so bad. I know she wants to learn, she just gets frustrated when she doesn't catch on immediately. She has learned quite a bit despite the fact. We are focusing right now mainly on her ABCs and writing. She seems to like that best. I did purchase a curriculum from KidSparkz. It's a preschool yearly curriculum, but it has so much stuff that we can add upon. I got it half off. Go me! Anything to save money. I won't start on my feelings about gas prices. *rolling eyes* Also I joined a website just for homeschooling moms - The Homeschool Lounge -I've already connected with some great moms who are right there with me in the teaching adventure.

I have really debated on whether or not this is the right decision for us. And I just think it's best for right now. DH has tried to be supportive, but he is so conflicted about what homeschooling will be like. It's not like I want to keep her to myself and not let her grow up. I just want her to get the best education that she deserves. As the pregnancy progresses and the due date grows closer, I've worried a bit more about the time I'll be trying to spend with her on schooling and the time I'll need for him. I know that she's going to have a big change as it is adding a baby to the please keep me in your prayers that my mind survives this! DH finished up this year of school and he will be around more to help with I am definitely looking forward to that.

And while we're on the subject of the baby. He is growing and my pregnancy ticker says I have 79 days left. :) But that will change once the doctor and I are able to decide when exactly she will do the c-section. I'm excited and nervous all in one. I just hope to have a healthy baby. That's what is nost important - I can deal with the rest. I had my 1 hour sugar test last week and it came back elevated, so I go Wednesday for the 3 hr test. Ugh! Hopefully, it was just a fluke and this test will be ok.

Well, I warned you this would be a long post...did you even make it to the end? If so thank you! (((HUGS))) I guess I'll hush for now. I'm going to go try and stay cool. The heating and air pump is acting up...hopefully tomorrow the piece will be in and then the 90 degree weather won't bug me. LOL

Have a wonderful blessed day!

  1. Hi Lesley!!
    Please know you ARE doing the RIGHT THING by homeschooling! We just completed our first year after 2 years of public school and it was HARD! Discipline was and still is, our biggest stumbling block. But I know I am doing the right thing and now after a year, I know I CAN DO IT! If you only knew how many times I wanted to give up and thought we couldn't do it LOL. (Having a newborn makes it even more difficult - and next year I will have a newborn and a 1 yr old LOL)

    So keep at it and every day will be an accomplishment, even though it won't feel like it at the time, it will be! And your hubby will see this in time too. There's no better place for our kids to be than with us mommies!

    Have a great summer!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love hearing from everyone! :)
