Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2018-2019): Our oldest child, EL, finished her formal education in May 2017. She remains at home due to her special needs, and continues to learn with us when she is able. JJ is in 10th grade this year. We intend to homeschool him through High School, and are using a variety of different curriculum choices to complete this goal.

Please feel free to follow along....

Birthdays in May

May, is usually one of our busiest months of the year. We have David's birthday, my birthday, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, and whatever graduations or weddings that show up as well. Plus, as the weather gets nicer, we get busier doing things outside, as well as making plans to finish up our school year. This year has been no exception with business. But, for now, I'm only going to focus on the BIRTHDAYS...

David's birthday came first. The kids helped me make his cake this year. They were excited about that.

Jell-O Cake is David's favorite!

For my birthday, my dad bought a bakery cake to share at our family reunion picnic. That was on the day before my actual birthday. Then, after my husband arrived home from a work conference, our little family shared a frozen Hershey's chocolate pie! Mmmmm.

And, there was one more birthday that we took part in this year. Remember the 4 Robin eggs sitting in the nest on top of our hose? Well, they all hatched. Here they are on their first day of life outside of the eggs.

We weren't able to get a picture of them actually hatching, because we didn't even realize it was happening until we saw 3 baby birds and 1 egg left. The next thing we knew, all 4 had hatched and there was no sign of the egg shells anywhere to be found.

A couple days later, we are now able to watch the babies stretching their necks out for mama to feed them. Every time we come out the back door, they feel the vibration and pop those heads up. It is so neat to watch. If I can ever figure out how to get a video uploaded on here, I will let you all see it.
