Well...While I am visiting my in-laws I will update my blog since I still don't have my computer. I had a wonderful Mother's Day!! We went down to my family's for the weekend. We had a wonderful time!!!! We came back yesterday and all the way home Rachelle threw up. She was pretty sick all night and ran a fever. I didn't have any school today...I was TOO EXHAUSTED!!! Now I just hope it doesn't run through the family..kid by kid. So I had a good Mother's Day despite the ending.
It was not Rachelle's weekend. Saturday I left the kids with Russ and went with my sister-in-laws shopping up by Indy. Then my cell rings. It was Russ. "I think Rachelle just broke her arm," he said. He went to Walmart with her and was pushing the basket with one hand and holding her hand with his other hand. She picked up both feet suddenly and just dropped towards the ground with all her bodyweight. As she dropped she twisted her body. Well...short story....took her to prompt med and thankfully she just dislocated her elbow. Poor thing, she was in a lot of pain. She is fine now except for the flu. I do thank the Lord she didn't break her arm. Mom's Day was very good!!

I don't know about other stay-at-home moms out there but I think Monday is the hardest day of the week!!! It is a challenge to homeschool without the added load of housework and two kids running around. Lately the kid's attention span has been very short---I have really had to be on them to concentrate the past two weeks. We are on the "home stretch"---I am actually decreasing their work load so their work is spread out-otherwise they would be done in a week or two! I will be very thankful when the last day is over. I am proud of my kids--they are doing well. They have had areas of difficulty like any other kid. I realize there are alot of people out there that scoff at homeschooling and make fun of it but I guess they don't hear who wins NATIONAL spelling bees and various other NATIONAL rewards!!!! Anyway, God has really helped me. I couldn't do it without Him.
I am so glad that warm weather has arrived!! My family LOVES the outdoors---we spend as much time outside as we can. We dislike living in town but we have two neat parks close by. Heritage Park has mountain bike trails that we love to bike on! My kids are troopers--you wouldn't believe the trails they rode their bikes on last summer!! Now that I have a blog I will have to post pics throughout the summer.
I need to attend to the housework now that my kids are almost done with their work. So long!
