School is Fun

Hey there blogging world! Here is a picture of one of the trilliums that we saw the other day. When I went teaching yesterday, we went for a walk again... this time with all the kids (except Meghan- she's only two and was taking a nap) and I had my camera. We tromped on out into the woods laughing and having a good ol' time. Most of the kids didn't like having their picture taken, but I still managed to get a few good ones. Katherine's face was beat red by the time we got back home. It's hard for a four year old to keep up with the big kids!

But she managed, and so did I. We didn't meet any big dogs this time, which is probably a good thing because we had so many people with us. There were eight of us in all because the neighbor boy, Brian, had been persuaded to come along.
I think that school has been going pretty good so far. Their Mom bought Joe, Rebekah and Katherine workbooks to go through. This is nice because it includes reading and writing exercises and math activities all in one convenient book. Joe is doing well with memorizing his division facts. His mom has been practicing them with him. Yeah! I don't think he knows how good he's been doing at them... or how much he actually knows. I see good progress with reading... it may not be too long before both Joe and Rebekah are reading just for fun.
Baby Rachel is getting bigger too. She is now at newborn age and her Mommy says she is popping out of her preemie clothes! That is good news.
Well, soon my hubby will be home. Dinner is already made and waiting. It's nice to have dinner done when he gets home. Makes me feel like a good wife. We're having chicken and pasta in a creamy sauce and a salad. I'm excited because it's something different and I think he'll like it. So I gotta go. Good evening to all!

I'm glad you're enjoying yor job! It's can be fun to cook for your hubby (and kids when you have them). I'm sure he appreciated the meal you made for him.

You sound like such a good little wife and someday you will be a wonderful mom too. I'm coming over for dinner!

God has given us some wonderful walkin' days! So, do you like having a big family?

Bethany said...

Having a big family is kinda fun... but sometimes they can be hard to handle... I'm sure you know what I mean.

It sounds like those walks are fun. I'm very glad you got a picture of the Trilliums becase they are very beatuiful, and now I have one more tidbit of information stuck into my head. So, congradulations your teaching people who arn't your students! On that note, I haerd from my dad that there were these two children who were never told what most kids know at their age and, being homeschooled, they didn'n know what their limits should be. They were doing calculus eaisily by 8th grade. Goodluck, and have a lovley weekend.
