No excuses...

I'm not going to sit here and waste time explaining why i've been such a bad blogger. I just have been, but, I have missed it. If my mind would have some sort of connection to the internet, not only would I have a post for every day, I'd have various daily post. It would be awesome! That hasn't been invented yet but you watch, it will be. That would be kinda freaky though. Anyways, so much has been going on lately. Briefly, school started this past week and although we didn't have the whole first day of school set up, we have been very excited around here. I continued on homeschooling with Ms. Alyssa and just started with Caleb. It's been quite an adventure. Alyssa is no jokes when it comes to school work. Gimme my work, what do I have to do, and she's working. Caleb on the other hand, gets "tired" quickly. Tries to get away with picking and choosing what he wants to do on his work sheets. Yeah, he's special that boy of mine. He's doing very good though. I'm really impressed with his writing. Hasn't done much of the tracing (alphabets) and he's already writing almost all his letters on his own. Alyssa is also doing great. Writing and spelling words out like blanket, block, black, flow, flag, and flashlight (I was impressed with that one). I'm really enjoying my time with them. Some people have asked me "how do you have the patience to homeschool", and well, I don't really know what to say. Not that I really think of myself to be an extremely patient person but, since we (the hubby and I) decided to do this, I have to give it my all and be on my best behavior. lol. I truly am enjoying being there as they grow intellectually. I'm like "wow, my kids ARE smart"! lol. I love those two. Okay, I'm sure not everyone is interested in my homeschooling my children so...I will move on. Um, oh yeah, my darling hubby and I celebrated our 9th year of Marriage on August 12...woohoo! Nothing fancy nor smancy this year. We had a lot to do around the house so we just hung out (he was on vacation that week), and I enjoyed every minute of it. That weekend we were able to have some alone time and just, hung out some more. We did make it to the movies, saw G.I. Joe... loved it. I have absolutely no pictures to document those days but...they were great! I really need to get me a point and shoot camera. I'm missing out on a lot of everyday shot because I don't want to carry around my big ole Canon. I'm using that one mainly for my photography biz which by the way is going GREAT! I'm soo excited with all that has been going on and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and call it a "job". It's just an awesome feeling. Well, I gotta go put my monsters to sleep but a post is not a post without pictures so, here i leave you with special "spa treatment" from my children. (They insisted, and I gave in).

And yes...this proud momma wore these sandals out to Target with her toes "AS IS" and even went to celebrate her best friends hubby's birthday that night with her crazy toes. My kids were proud, can't say that for my hubby and friends though! lol.
