So, here are some pictures that we have taken since we left Fort Hood in early February. Lots of laughter, silliness, snow... We are currently waiting for Daddy to finalize an apartment over in Korea. The updated amendment to our orders is already being processed, which is what we are waiting for in order to get a flight. EEEk! Starting to get excited!
Big J has been doing awesome with his school- his reading is coming along nicely, and he is starting to read words whenever we go out somewhere. His math drove me crazy all last week, learning the difference between counting by 5's and by 10's!! We shall not go there again.. lol. Picture me with my hair all frazzled and my head in my hands. Plus, has anyone ever come up with a good way to teach sight words? I was explaining how to pronounce the word 'to', since he said 'toe'. But then, how would you explain the words too, and two? This homeschooling thing has stretched my imagination farther than I ever expected it to. I love how I get to learn right along with him- even if its only a creative definition. :)
I don't have any eloquent words that will make this sound perfect. I'm not perfect. I lose my temper, holler at the kids, get frustrated when I have to explain things over and over (and over). Daily, I wish I would have done things better. And I am noticing, that each day, I am doing a tiny bit better at holding my calm, or playing with each kid. And I give all the credit to God. Lately I have been praying much more, and at many more times during the day. Only he can give me the strength, patience and knowledge to get through the day He has given me. :)
Things are going to be changing around here... so hang on for the ride!
