This is Elmo and Uniqua attending school! I love it. Allie will start dance tonight so that she can make for real friends bless her heart!
Yesterday was so much fun. You know you've have a good day when everyone from the 4 month old to the 30 year old is is covered in glitter and finger paints! I brought the kids to our neighborhood track yesterday to let them ride their bikes and they had a blast. Emily enjoyed our little walk too. She drifted off to sleep in no time amidst the screams of excitement from my other two yahoos!
Allie found her a hill to roll down and it reverted me back to my childhood when hard prickly grass was no match for me. And, my little angel has her first loose tooth! I think I am going to glue it back in when it comes out bc she is just not old enough to lose a tooth yet! She also fed Emily bear cereal last night and was such the little mama. She loves her some Emily!
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!
It is the world's worst blogger once again! So much to say and not enough time to say it so I will make it super short! 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 am married to the love of my life. It is as if God picked Michael for me. I am a mother to a little girl that surprises me everyday with just how sweet she can be; and to a little boy that already has me like puddy in his hands. I would say that if I could sum up my life in one word, it would be BLESSED! Thank you God for giving me the ability to be a wife and mother!
How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
