Her two birthday requests...a new bike and Saige.
Her grandpa took her bike shopping and she picked out a pink and blue bike. She is thrilled!
In our homeschool this week....We had a fun day at co-op on Monday. After classes, the kids headed outside to play while a few moms cleaned the building. The kids are enjoying the spring weather finally! We are studying Ancient Rome. I have a lot of fun ideas to go along with our lessons. My goal is to actually share them on the blog for others to enjoy. Hopefully things will slow done a bit. I highly doubt it since soccer has started. In science, we are learning about food chains, food webs, and animal habitats.
Something New and Exciting....Princess p had her eyes checked again and she now needs glasses. She is a little excited about it but it not happy about having to wear them all the time. I'm glad we finally figured out what was wrong with her eyes. Now I can understand why she had such a difficult time with reading. She picked purple frames!
What I am reading.....Nothing! I have been too busy.
What the kids are reading.....Princess P is reading the American Girl Molly series
and Lego Man is reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
What I am working on.....Princess P's First Holy Communion Dress. We finally got the fabric this week, so I will be sewing that for the next few weeks. She picked out some beautiful lace! The ladies at the store want to see a picture of it when it's done. She is getting so excited about her special day. My only pet peeve...why do all little girls shoes have to have a heel! She's 8 not 18!!
What we are eating....We have been eating whole foods. Fresh fruit, fresh veggies, etc. Nothing processed. We have found few recipes that are good but some of them have been YUCKY as the kids would say. This has helped my diet. Since December, I have lost 12 pounds. I would love to lose 15-20 more pounds.
