Homeschooling is going great. We do academic stuff in the morning, go outside for recess, and come in for art/readiness skills/housekeeping/blocks/you name it to keep their little minds and hands busy! Uniqua and Elmo have joined our kindergarten class for the past few days, but they just stare at me blankly so I don't think they are getting anything from my teaching!
I think I have two rebellious rugrats as children! I leave them alone for two minutes and they have covered themselves with "tatoos." Thank goodness they were just star stickers. Lord help me when they are 18!
Emily is growing so fast. She is the sweetest little thing that talks all of the time and smiles and coos and cries when I am out of sight. I think she is ready for solids because she literally smacks her lips at our food and tried to dive into my plate of hamburger helper last night. I know msg sodium filled junk known as hamburger helper but every once in a while it is so stinkin good!

1.) We have our precious new bundle. Emily Rebecca Hataway was born on May 9th and is an absolute treasure! She steals my heart just about every day and I could eat her with a spoon! Allie and Joshua love her so much and have adjusted well to our little addition.
2) I am homeschooling Allie this year. It is going wonderfully so far and she seems to really enjoy it. We are using the Abeka program and she is already reading one vowel words and is doing great in all of her other subjects too:)
3.) Joshua turned three and is 100% boy! That is until Allie dresses him up as Cinderella. I have to say he makes a pretty princess! He is a little goofball. Michael and Joshua have become such good buddies and I love seeing him want to be just like Daddy. Just this morning he took his bible in the room with Michael to "study."
I leave you with pictures and hope to post soon!

Lots has happened since I blogged last. Allie has started preschool. I cannot believe it. She is my big girl and after a little rough patch the last two weeks of not wanting to go she has bounced right back into loving it. She has learned so much and I am so pleased with her teachers and our whole school experience in general!
I have baby #3 on the way. I am so incredibly excited. We were able to see the heartbeat on a sonogram yesterday which eases my mind a great deal. Seeing the little buger on the screen yesterday just made it super real to me. Sometimes I cannot believe that we are doing this all over again, but all in all I think we are ready, and I think our family will be final come May! When I first found out I was expecting I was like "ok I am not eating anything junky and am only gaining 20 pounds this go round." HA HA! I just got done gourging my face with Chinese food. I am starving all of the time and am going to enjoy what is probably my last pregnancy experience!!
Well, join me in the future for daily happenings around the Hataway household.

Joshua trying to take sister's lunchbox!
And this my dear friends, is accomplishment. Sadly,so many stay at home mom's do not feel accomplished. They feel like they do not contribute to anyone or anything. However, I have been blessed by an Almighty God not to feel that way. To me, sitting with my two babies in the chair reading a book at the end of a very busy day is the very definition of accomplishment!
