Tuesday

Haven't been around here much. Spend a lot more time on Facebook lately.
We are all finally starting to feel better, still have a nasty cough but it's all good.
Starting to get back in the school groove...it has been a struggle to get cooperation from the kids but it will get better. I hope...Because again I am faced with whether or not I am going to place them in school. Money is extremely tight and I don't know if there will be any way of getting more curriculum for the kids this year. I know there are things I can get for free online but don't know if that is enough. We will just do our best.
I really want to get the two younger reading this year. Mr. T will be 7 in 12 days and he just does not want to read at all...I have tried to find books that he might be interested in but he just won't do it. Very stubborn child!

Still reading Karen Andreola's Charlotte Mason Companion book and really like it...need to maybe find a copy for myself because I don't know how many times they will let me check it out of the library. ; )

Well yup, the same ol' same ol' my life is boring...the only exciting thing that has happened is I sold something in my Etsy shop and it is headed to Madrid (Spain)!! that is pretty cool. : )
I am also making something right now but I can't share it with you until after it has been done and given. So you will have to wait for a photo and details. : )

I feel your pain about reading! Lionel won't pick up a book and read it on his own unless he has to! I've struggled with it for years with this boy, but he just has no interest. He does read a couple magazines he subscribes to: WW2 one and one on Lionel trains. I suppose that's better than nothing.

Can't wait to see what you're making now. One of these days I'm going to get my hubby to buy one of your homemade items for me...just 'cause! =)

Hugs,
