Randomness on a Friday

  • We took a little mini vacation back in September for David’s birthday. We had a blast! The weather was perfect. The girls enjoyed running around on the beach and jumping the waves. I was in my usual spot looking out for sharks. We met my parents, sister, brother-in-law and the sweetest little three year old niece ever, at Family Kingdom.

  • We got a late start on school this year and are still playing catch up. It has not helped matters that my back has gone out twice, had a kidney stone and then an infection from said kidney stone. We added a new language arts program, Grammar and Writing, as well as a new history, Around the World in 180 days. So far we are really enjoying both. This year has been a little different, in a good way, since the girls are older. On days where things go as planned, we all start out at the table then I give Emily and Audrey their lessons and send them on their way. Sarah and I have a little more time to spend working together. She is such a little eager learner. Right now my main focus with her is reading. One area I hope to improve in is arts and crafts. I was looking for a picture the other day and ran across a ton of pictures of craft and art projects the girls have completed over the years.

  • Leave it to Beaver, The Andy Griffith Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show & The Cosby Show have got to be the best sitcoms ever. The girls have really gotten into Leave it to Beaver these past couple of weeks. We’ve already watched every Dick Van Dyke & Cosby Show episode on Netflix. Maybe even twice. But no matter how many times you watch them they are just as funny. I Love Lucy is my all time favorite and I’m waiting not so patiently for Amazon Prime to add new episodes.



  • I’m hoping to create our fall list of things to do today. I’ve been putting it off and if I don’t get started on it soon we will be doing our list through December. I have a board set up on Pinterest but each time I hop on I start looking at yummy recipes, photography tips and exercise stuff {like I’m ever gonna do that mess ha!}and before I know it is almost time to make out a winter list.
