Then it snowed last week and we were all excited at first and now everyone is asking when winter will be over. We were spoiled! I Really, really, really want to start seeds indoors this year though to help pass the time. I only have another month before I need to get started. Crazy!
Jack is having a rough time getting back into schooling. I keep threatening him with sending him back to brick and mortar school and then he screams, "no! no! I'll do it!" So funny. He's excited to do 3rd grade math and says it's his favorite subject. I'm so glad we decided to homeschool so he could do math at his own pace. Last year was really frustrating for him. I'm on the wait list for 2 charter schools that do part time home school and part time in school. The hardest part about this has been being away from friends so I think an option like that would be perfect for us. I hope we get in!!!
Tumbleweed is no longer my baby and I'm having a really tough time with that. She's starting to wean and part of me doesn't want to let her and keep going for 4 more months. But I don't have much milk these days and I also want to let her take the lead. So hard to let go of some things! She's also getting very interested in using the potty. That part I am SO ready for! I amazed by her vocabulary! It's totally normal for a 19 month old, but since Munchkin barely talked til she was 27 months, it seems amazing to me. She's also sleeping through the night!! Did I tell you? It's been over a month, but we discovered she'll sleep a full 10 hours if she's on the couch. She just hates her bed. Hallelujah! I'll take it!
I finally decided to drop K12 so now I'm busy finding my own curriculum and lesson plans. I ordered a language arts book that should come tomorrow and that will help a lot. I've also been sewing doll clothes for Munchkin's upcoming birthday. It's a pain, but I like seeing the finished product and using up my fabric scraps!
Here are the dresses I made the girls for Christmas
I have to admit part of me really enjoys winter because I get a break from outside work and have time to sew and knit and all that fun stuff :)
