A very overdue post. SORRY!

I'm going to try and be better about this blog thing. I know some of you want to know more about the homeschooling thing. For now I'll give you a quick update on our life.

The woods next to us are being cut down to make way for more houses. How sad :( . The one good thing is we can find a lot of wood for burning to make S'mores. Yummy!!!! We've already had 2 fires in the last week and are planning one for tomorrow.
We went on our first field trip to The Duke Homestead. Sydney was finding treasures from the past.

These are some of the kids from Madison's class that are learning about the Little House time period.
Here is the Duke's house that was built in 1800's,

After I had posted all the pics I realized Baxter pics got mixed in with the field trip. He is a Cubbies fan and he had to drown himself when they lost. Doesn't he look drunk in the bottom pic.

Now back to the field trip. Tom took the day off and cam along. We had a great picnic lunch and then they ran around wit the kids and played.
We had such a great time and learned about how the Duke's lived and compared it to how the family from the Little House books might have lived. Then at the end of the day they had a fashion show. Sydney looks so cute.

We are also trying to sell our house. Yes we watch the news.

This is the house we want it is on 1/2 and acre. How great would that be.
I thought I'd share with you what our house looks like on wed. afternoons. We pack our lunches for our co-op the next day. They are great in the kitchen. Check out those nice lunch boxes. I decided to give the Tupperware thing a try.

Thanks for checking in again!
