Finally Friday!

This week has been a long difficult week. I started a job on Monday that requires a lot of time (luckily it is a work at home job, message me if you want details) So I have been busy doing web training for that, and finishing up school. It seems like every time I plan a day to finish up the last little bit of school work that the kids need to turn into Connections Academy something comes up and throws it all off track. But we are slowly getting there.
Yesterday, Daddy had his second hip surgery in less than 6 months, so we are all back on that odd schedule again. Luckily Noah and Abigail help out a bunch with Jade and Braeden, while I am busy with Daddy. Hopefully, this is will be the last surgery and everything will work out and be done. I honestly don't know if any of us can handle another one.
Today, Braeden has his follow up appointment with the neurologist. I have been dreading this appointment for some time now because he still isn't walking all the time (at moments it seems like he is just going to take off running and then he stops and doesn't go anywhere) and he still isn't talking. Well he has just started saying mamamama in the past week. But it doesn't seem to be directed towards me, its just something that he is babbling. So I am not sure what that is going to hold for us.
On a more positive note, Daddy and I have been looking into RV's on craigslist in the surrounding areas and we have found some really great ones that are right in our price range. So hopefully we will be able to get us one in the next couple of weeks. Especially if this job I have started turns out to have a good income. Noah and Abigail have been talking about where they want to go and what they want to see, I am actively making plans to go visit friends in Vermont. So we are definitely in the planning stages of being ROAD BOUND!!! :-)

Tagging Tuesday!

I figured that I would give a shout out to a couple of the websites and their people that have been so helpful to me in the past few weeks as I have been learning the ins and outs of a blog and how to properly take care of one.
https://twitter.com/#!/HomeschoolBlogs  They always have helpful tips that they have tweeted
http://homeschoolblogging.com  Love their blog and it is so informational!
http://teachingblogaddict.com   A great place to find different ways to teach your children!
I have many different blogs that I follow that are very special to me in one way or another, and always extremely helpful!!

I am currently still working on the RV Roadschooling Blog, it is going to be full of fun information and ideas, why we want to possibly do this, and what the kids think about it! Stay tuned its going to be an awesome one!

Manic Monday

I spent the weekend making plans for this little blog. I want to be a more active part of it, and I am wanting to give the kids active parts. So here we go, I am a little late on getting today's post up and going but it has been a very busy day; as this week is going to be super busy.
Monday (today lol)- I spent most of the day letting the kids play computer games, because it has been a nasty rainy day and I couldn't hold their attention for anything; while I sat through a couple of webinars for a new company that I have started working for. It is a work at home job, so I get to spend all my time with the kids and still get to earn a living for them and myself. (if you want any information, just comment and let me know :-)
Tuesday- early morning it is pre-op doctor visit for Daddy's next hip surgery, then off to look at an R.V. that we are thinking about buying. It has been coming up in conversation to take this family on the road. So we are now trying to make it happen. I will be making a separate post on this with more details later on in the week.
Wednesday- will be spent doing the couple of lessons the kids have to do with Connections Academy this week, along with their Leap Tests that the school requires them to do, the rest of the day will be spent getting ready for Daddy's surgery.
Thrusday- nothing much is going on except Daddy's surgery. We are lucky that it is going to be an outpatient procedure and we are hoping that this gets everything taken care of so Daddy can get back on his feet fully. Thrusday night, I have another webinar/training session with this company.
Friday- is going to be spent helping Daddy and working with the kids and school if there are any lessons left for them to do.
Saturday- we have a pottery show at the museum here in town that we will be going to if Daddy feels up for the trip. If we do go I will be posting pictures. :-)
And Sunday will be our day of rest and reflection and getting ready for the next week!
Its going to be a long week, but everything is going to be great in the end!

Stay tuned for the post about our possible R.V. adventures!!!

Waiting...

That is all Noah and Abigail are doing right now. Waiting... for their pen pals to respond to their letters. Its been two weeks and no response. I hope that they get letters from their pen pals because if not, I am going to have two very upset children. Hopefully they will show up Monday.
Noah is also waiting to see if he gets a pet in the next couple of weeks. He has been a little more bored than usually these past week or so since school work has slacked off and we are looking at summer. So Daddy and I discussed a hamster and we think it is a good choice for him. I am going to print off a couple of things about how to care for a hamster and then I think he and I are going to go to the pet store and get it. We have talked to him about it and he is super excited for it and even has a list of names for it.
Now what do I do for Abigail... because there is no way that child is even remotely ready to be responsible for anything. LOL
That pretty much sums of this week for us. Its been a bit of a lazy, enjoy the wonderful weather week. And next week is going to be the same way. I love my summer months and enjoy the lazy day weather!
