090516 -090816: cleaning out, school, and chickens

Chicken update: LilBit is doing good. Still follows mom everywhere and I setting some feathers in. 

We’ve been doing lots of school work. Judah on E. 

Wes caught a hummingbird in his shop. It literally fell from the ceiling. At some point, this little guy had gotten caught in some webs, and it wrapped up his wings. His dainty little wings. He laid in Wes’ hand while we gently pulled off the webbing from his feet and wings, then he took off, just fine and dandy! 

Kids were super psyched about seeing the teensy bird up close. 

And in between school I’ve been cleaning out. Like, a lot. This is some of the clothes I’m getting rid of. Wes is getting rid of a ton of button up shirts and clothes too. And we’ve got a ton of kids clothes too. And then just stuff. 

Garage sale is Oct 1st!

Me and a few friends are going to bring our stuff together and sell all at once- in hopes of having more folks come. I think it’ll do well! 

And finally- I gotta say how proud I am of my husband. He got a really cool job- graffiting UpDown, the new trampoline park in Hattiesburg. He did so awesome!! I can’t post pics yet, because they haven’t. I’ll share with you when I can!

Alright- you are caught up! 

082216 – 082516: A Weeks catch up

We’ve been going strong on school. And that takes a fairly big chunk of our time. 

We do take the occasional bunny break.

This little guy has been here a week and is already sweeter than Jasmine ever was. Lucy prays for Jasmine every night, and says she misses her, but then she also tells God how happy she is about cabbage. 

I truly hated to get rid of a pet like that… But having a mean rabbit is just uncalled for. 

I found a kids world map at target for $6 and the kids have been loving it. 

And we got a shipment in so the kids got a new toy (box).
And I took the kids to homeschool Open gym for them to play. They had a blast. But an hour and half of straight playing, climbing, jumping, and rolling still didn’t wear these two out. 
This weekend we’ve got plans to go to Baton Rouge to help with clean up. I’m not real sure what to expect. I am looking forward to helping some folks though. 

That’s about it! Hope your Friday is awesome!

080916 – 081216: Week 2 

We’ve been busy schooling. And honestly that’s about it. It takes up a pretty large portion of my day, now that Lucy is doing six subjects and Judah is working on  pre-reading. 

We do take pauses out of our class to study a little bit of nature…


My kids’ classroom isn’t limited to our actual classroom and I’m glad about that. We learn outside, a lot. And it’s so nice when they get bogged down for me to say, “wanna take a break?” And they flood out the door. 

Friday I had class, and Wes had to paint at Uncle Pauls new gym, so Wes took the kids with him. I got home at about 11:30 and had an empty house all to myself. It was crazy. I haven’t been alone in my house for more than like an hour in months. It was nice. Not gonna lie, haha!

Friday night we went out to eat with Ms. Steph and Paul and Christy and all our kiddos for her birthday. Food was good and company was even better. 

That’s it for this week..

Hope your weekend is great!

080316 – 080616: School and Stuff

Kiddos started school and so I got our always-random, usually shoeless, first day of school pictures. 

See? They do love each other some!

I’ve got a couple of posing kiddos…

And we did school most of the week, except Friday when I wasn’t home but for a few minutes with work and other stuff. 

And then Saturday we had a birthday party! My nephew turns 2 this week! 

So I made my other nephew take a picture with Lucy. He loves taking pictures. 

And the birthday boy…

And then he was gone. I’ve got a video of him struggling to stay awake and still eat cake. It’s quite cute. 

And this will be his present on his 13th birthday. A framed picture of the two of us. 
Haha! Sweet little guy! 

Hope your week was as good as it would be to fall asleep eating cake!

041616 – 042016: catchup again!

My week has been a blur so far. Monday we cleaned up the yard and did a lot of school catching up. Then we took a walk and had a snack. 

   
   
Tuesday we did some school and then I had to drop off a ton of clothes to a consignment place in Hattiesburg. Then I had my painting class. I had four sign ups! 

  
I let Lucy paint with me for the lesson plan I was doing. She did pretty good for 5!

  
Wednesday I cleaned a house (a new side gig) and then had church and helped with fundraiser prep. 

Today I’m doing a class for a homeschool group. 

Tomorrow I have Michaels class again, and a wedding in the evening. 

I’ve literally not stopped since Monday. When I do stop, it’s to do school or clean the house up a little. It’s been crazy. 

So.. I guess I need to dash of and get busy. See y’all sometime next week, haha!
