Hello :)

Today was nice. Kyle and I went to the park and did school there.

This week he is reading (almost completely on his own) 'Johnny Appleseed''s a Railroad version for beginning readers, but he is still doing AWESOME!

He also learned how to spell and read the word "what" today.

We had a spelling test for words from last week--he got 100% on that. :o)

We are also talking about weather this week. His Science curriculum is called "God's World". So it teaches them God's plan for different things. Next week is seasons. Pretty basic stuff, but important to review.

This week Kyle starts subtraction. He is so excited.....he wanted to start today but we are starting tomorrow. He's really siked about that!

We had a great time at the park...we had a picnic lunch and stayed there for about 3 hours or so. I got lesson plans done for the next two weeks and Kyle met a friend and played. There was also this HUGE ditch (dry, of course) that we rolled the ball in about a hundred times, lol.

I've never been to this park--didn't even know it was there! It's like hidden behind this uppity neighborhood and I really like it! There are about 6 or 8 softball/baseball fields there you know I am SO there come game time!!!!

Well, tomorrow we are going to Ahma's. We will be staying the night there and coming home Wednesday.

I hope everyone had a great Monday!!!

Love you!

Weekend in a nutshell

Ok, so this weekend has gone by way too fast! Yesterday I spent like 4 hours scrubbing my kitchen from ceiling to took FOREVER....but o, so worth it. When you walk in, everything is all bright and shiny now, lol.
Last night we did Christmas with Kyle and Joanne....I love her, btw! She's a really awesome person.
For their wedding, Ronnie is the best man (of course) and last night they asked Kyle to be their ring bearer (awwwwwww) and Joann asked me to be a bridesmaid. I was really surprised but very happy and honored. The wedding is in JUNE of 09...not February as Ronnie had previously told me. ;}
We had a really good time with them, and Joanne and I got to know each other a little more. Which is nice because I really like her and as everyone knows, that is rare, lol. (j/k, i love everyone-ha ha).
Church was incredible this am. We had extra long praise and worship and the message was great. I spoke with the lady heading up the Power of a Praying Woman class. I'm SUPER excited about that and I received my workbook from her tonight, but class doesn;t start until next Thursday.
I woke up this am with almost no voice...and now I sound kida like a voice is coming and going. GEEZ...

So...the rabbit is running loose in the back yard. He really likes being "free" out there. We will see how he does.

I got like 4 loads of laundry done today---even folded, hung and put up Cher! lol

Tomorrow is a new school week. We will be tying up our theme on honesty and being considerate. In addition to our academics, we will be discussing table etiquette this week and have a tea party on Thursday using our etiquette.
I think we may even have a field trip on the skating, I do believe...I need to check with Lisa M. to confirm if that is still on b/c Karate lessons are Fridays..hmmmmm.
Well, off for now....hope everyone had a great weekend!!!
O, and thanks for commenting Shannon....I just figured out today how to read those, LOL! Love you too!

Hi all,
Sorry I missed yesterday...I was wiped out! I went to bed the night before around 12:30 and I woke up at 4 am and couldn't fall back to sleep. So, I did Medicare billing from about 4:30 to 9, and then had to handle payroll for Docs..I finally got to go to bed for a nappy around 12, 12:30. And I didn't get up til 2:30/3:00. I had my first sewing lesson today! It was great!!! I learned SO much. Sewing is much easier than I thought.
I can't wait to put some of my new knowledge to the test tomorrow and Sunday....o, and that skirt I was making....yeaaaa, it won't fit, LOL.
I made chili tonight for ronnie and ky would have a hearty meal while i was is the first time i have ever made chili....and it was SOOOOOOO yummy!
I am off for now.

Today was freezing! And tonight it is literally freezing. I did not get out of my jammies today....and I accomplished nothing except school with Kyle. We got a roaring fire going this evening and had frozen pizza for dinner.
I knitted my first successful rows!!! I'm really excited about that....long tail casting on, knit, and purl. :)

O, and a very experienced woman, who has been sewing on a profesional level for 45 years, has offered to give me FREE sewing lessons!!! YAY! I start Friday!'s cold...I'm off to bed.

La dee da

So today was pretty productive...the weather was wonderful. I did a spring cleaning on the living room. Pulled everything away from the walls...wiped down EVERY inch of the living room...all molding, top and bottom, around all doors, etc. every single thing in that room is spotless.....I LOVE IT, lol.
I am going through this house, getting rid of stuff I haven't used in a long time...I'm freecycling it off.
Tomorrow's high is only 48!! And tomorrow night it is getting down to 27!!
Well, I am off for the night.
Cherri is back in town :)
Love to all,

Happy New Year!!!!!

Happy New Years!!!
My resolutions: 1). To get back in the habit of doing daily hubby got me the Joyce Meyers Devotional book New Day, New You...and it is actually dated and started, so did I :)
And #2). To continue to learn how to sew, knit and crochet....anyone who can help...please let me know! I would gladly accept any advice!!

Well, I woke the guys up last night to see the was the best show we've ever seen...and PERFECT seats in our front yard! The neighbor across the street came out..she was drunk....telling me how she's there for me...I've never met the woman before, lol. Then she started crying "cause the fireworks are so pretty".

I made an incredible breakfast this am. (Ronnie is off today). It was a breakfast pizza...I didn't have time to make a fresh pizza dough, so I bought a Boboli...I sauteed green peppers, onions, ham and bacon.....added ten beaten eggs.....pulled it off the heat just as the eggs set--they were still a little runny.....mixed some mozzarella and cheddar cheese in, then put it all on the pizza dough....added more cheese on top and baked for 18 mins......SO YUMMY!!!!!!

We did school and Ronnie sat in on it....he was quite bored, I must say, lol.

Well, I'm chillin', Kyle's playing with his friend named Kyle and Ronnie is working on his truck.
It's beautiful weather out today. I am going to do some cleaning today....maybe dust the blinds and a couple of other "spring" cleaning type things.....the great weather just puts me in the mood!
Thanks to everyone who has checked out our site and emailed me....sorry that you have to have a google id to leave comments.
OK, I'm gonna go for now...Mom is coming over for coffee.
Happy New Year's to all!!
