Our 2012-13 school year starts...

next week!  LOL  This is one of the many joys of homeschooling--flexibility!  We were scheduled to start today, but we have had such a busy 2 weeks that I made the executive decision to start next week.   

 Homeschool events, co-op planning meeting, VBS planning meeting, Charlotte's birthday, going away party for the Vincents, fellowship meal at church, dance rehearsals for recital, recital, Mother's day... on top off numerous chiropractor trips for my thrown out back!  Who says homeschool families are recluses and social outcasts?  They obviously have not met any real life homeschool families!  We are looking forward to a relatively quiet week at home and being able to give the house and yard the attention it desperately needs.  One of my biggest to-dos is to paint the playroom-turning-boys-room this week.  Musical rooms cannot begin until that is done.  

Here are a few pics from our week:

Troy took Connor, Jacob, and Grace to the store but Shaoey didn't want to go.  She wanted to stay with mama on Mother's Day.  So while the others were gone we took a little nature walk around the yard and turned it into a little Shaoey photo shoot.  I just love this princess so much! 

She is trying to catch a moth.  She's planning her move....

And goes in for the catch...and missed, but had fun!

Oh that joy and smile is just too much for this mama's heart!  

This is a special tree that we "won" at an auction a few years ago  to benefit A Pregnancy Center and Clinic..  We planted it in memory of our daughters' birth moms.  As a reminder of the life they gave our girls.

My sweet and sexy man!

Vincents--just for you!  Mama cat and kittens are doing great!

Our beautiful ballet princesses.  They did an AWESOME job at recital.  We are so proud of them.  Shaoey has since told us "I LOVE being on stage!"
