Well it's that time again. My how the week flew by! Today I made a Honey Bun Cake for breakfast that was super good. Can't wait to make it again. Then we all went to the Virginia Living Museum for a special Underwater Adventure Leggo exhibit. As a final stop, we took the kids to McDonald's as a special treat. Now we're home and I'm planning my week.

We had company this past week. Rhonda made a cheese pie for us to enjoy for dessert.

Thursday was conference day for Pad. He's doing well in his preschool.

I worked on our curriculum. Although I would love to homeschool, I am just not able to at this time, so I do what I call "extended learning." I have a few things left to flesh out in February. Better get a move on that! lol! I did come up with a great idea for the spring/summer though. We have passes for Busch and so we will be doing the different countries. We'll start with Ireland in March :) Perhaps it can be an ongoing spring/summer curriculum with more depth being added every year as they get older. Also, we will be studing the various animals, specifically the bald eagle and the wolves.

Well, that's about it here. See you next week!

Been a busy week as usual around here. Rhonda and Padraic are still enjoying school, Millie added up and okay to her vocabulary (for a 17 month old she's pretty perceptive!), and Henry just cute his first tooth!

Today I played handbells in the choir at church and them picked up the kids and we went to our IL's house to watch the Steeler/Bronco game. She's from PA and a big Pittsburg fan! She's having a Superbowl Pary since the Steelers won 34-17!

Well, I didn't get much sleep last night, so I'm going to try and get some now!

New Year, New Blog

Well, this is my new blog. Seems like I lost just about everything when my computer went kaput several months ago. Anyway...

This will be updated a minimum of once a week; a little more if I can swing it. We'll see how it goes.
