Wow! We are starting our third year home schooling. I am proud that I haven’t scarred our children. <Yet.> Give me another year or two. I am pretty sure Michael questions our decision to home school on a weekly, maybe daily, basis. I’m not sure what we were talking about or how it even came up but I forgot that beavers could go underwater. He gave me the are you kidding me? look. That helped me to remember that they won’t in fact drown when they are under the water building their dam. Umm, I wonder if Liberty is still enrolling?
Today is the one day out of the whole year that Braylon likes for me to take his picture. Weird kid? Maybe. But I will take it. I didn’t even have to make him get dressed this morning. Cassidy on the other hand usually LOVES to doll up to have her picture made, but this morning she just wanted to wear “play clothes”. Because that is what you wear to school. Duh.
Our first day went really well. It always does. It’s day two, three, four, (I could continue counting but I won’t) where things can get ugly. If this year is anything like the last two, they will start testing me about 8:30 in the morning. Just to see what they can get away with. Hopefully by this time next week we will be settled back in to a nice routine.
Korie is six months old now. Where did the time go? She already has a tooth! She is rolling and working really hard toward sitting up. We start physical therapy at the Kistler Center next week. She will have a 45 minute session twice a week. We have only met her therapist twice but I love her already. She is amazing with Korie.
I decided a week or so ago it was time to try Korie on some solids. Mostly just for fun. And I have to admit, Braylon, Cassidy and myself had a lot of fun. I don’t think I can say the same for Korie. I was only going to give her two or three bites of the prunes just to see how she liked it, but she was so stinking funny we couldn’t stop. She probably ate half the jar. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
The above picture is for the EI (Early Intervention) lady who assured me Korie wouldn’t be sitting before 9 months! She is by no means sitting independently for any length of time, but we’re not even close to 9 months yet. Korie is going to show everyone who’s boss.
Thursday is the big day. NO MORE SHOES except nap time and bedtime. I’m looking forward to airing her feet out. They are stinky. She is doing absolutely fantastic. I honestly don’t think she could be doing any better than what she is. I give glory to God. He is so merciful.
