So much has gone on at home lately. We've just been so busy. It's a good busy though. We've fallen into a better rhythm with homeschooling. We still have some really rough days but for the most part it's fun. I'm looking forwards to next year because Noah is really excited about his curriculum. I can't believe he'll be 11 in December. He's a great big brother. You know...when he's not picking on Emily. I don't know how they even manage to fight. She's 2. He's 10. What could they possibly have to argue about? Noah is very smart. He's funny like his dad. He has a very kind heart. I love to watch his faith grow. I'm excited to see the ways that God will use him. Oh. He also hates when I share photos of him now... So if you follow me on social media that's why my pictures are mostly of Emily lol
Emily is so much fun. She gets into a lot of trouble. One night before bed Noah couldn't find his 2 favorite animals. We looked everywhere. He insisted they had to be in Emily's room. In the process of checking her room I woke her up. I asked her if she knew where they were. She told me they were in brothers room. I asked her to show me. She ran straight to his nightstand and opened the drawer. She had hidden them inside. I know she did this on purpose because she KNOWS they are his favorite. Her antics are so naughty but hilarious. It's hard to tell her no when we're all laughing. She knows what she wants and she wants it all right now. She's also very sweet. She likes to give hugs and kisses, on her terms of course.
We're still dealing with our flooding backyard. Every time it rains we have a lake. We did finally landscape the front. When and if we move someday I feel like I don't want close neighbors. I love people but I'd like a little more privacy and quiet. We've been here for almost 2 years now. Joey wants to move to Florida but I'm not ready to move anywhere lol. Moving is my least favorite thing!
We have a trip to Disney planned for next month. I know. I know. We just went in December. Since Emily is 2 she's free. So that paired with a great discount made it possible for us to go again. We're also driving this time. Which saves us thousands of dollars. It is SO expensive to fly from here! I'm more excited about this trip because now Emily knows who all the princesses are. We booked a Disney Cruise a long time ago but we wont actually be going until next year. After that we'll be done for a while. We have never gone on a big family vacation before. We've never really been able to. I would much rather spend the money on experiences and time together than on things to fill up my home.
Other than that things are the same mostly. My house is a mess. There is laundry to do. The dogs play in the mud and I have to bathe them. The usual.
