One. Two. Three.

1. We finished school. We jumped back in after the move and we worked hard and got. it. done. I love when the older kids get involved and teach the younger kids. It is fabulous. I also like the flashlight app on my phone.


2. At least he’s half dressed. I love this kid.

3. Once a week we make cookies. We may have perfected the chocolate chip cookie. Once a week I don’t eat cookies. I am at 42 pounds lost and counting.

school44. This was almost the last of the boxes and I finally put them away. It took 20 minutes and I wondered why I didn’t do it sooner. Today just one lonely box of random things sits in the garage. That’s it. It’s those annoying 30 minute projects sometimes. I will get it done. Maybe even this week!


5. He’s still half dressed and calls play dough, “no no”. It gets confusing.

school66. The chicken’s new home is in progress.

school77. My Princess Consuela. Unfortunately we lost my daughter’s chicken to a hawk a couple of weeks ago. Tragic. I didn’t really know this was an option. Do hawks eat Yorkies?

school88. I triple love our backyard.


9. As do the chickens.




10. Our neighbors/landlords share their backyard because they are awesome like that. The treehouse has twinkle lights. I can’t wait to have school in there during a storm this winter.

11. My daughter turned 13 this past month. We had a shopping spree at Forever 21, ear piercing, and a talent show in one day. Too much for my heart. She’s on the left and I love her.school1212. My son taught himself to play the ukulele and was in a talent show too. So proud of this kid. Love him. The youth at our church put the show on to raise money for Summer Camp, WHICH is great because for the two of my kids to go it cost almost as much as my rent.

school1413. Final week of school brought on projects, projects, projects.

school1614. We studied and created our own hieroglyphics while visiting Egypt in our Geography curriculum.

school1715. This was at about 7:30 pm the night before the last day of school. Cutting. it. close. We were determined to finish.


16. Egyptian bread. Honey, butter, bread crumbs, topped with ice cream. I hear it was pretty good.

school1917. Two years and a fantastic curriculum. Thankful to Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler for putting it together. We loved it.

school2018. More progress on the chicken coop. Can not wait for it to be DONE!


19. Country livin’ suits us well . It’s always a good time to run around the yard in jammies and rain boots out here.


Ready for summer!

    Coop looks awesome. Did your hubby design it? Your weight loss and will power; inspiring! I didn’t realize NOT eating the cookies or honey bread was an option. Your new home and yard look Uh-mazing! Your kids are adorable. And, I can’t wait to take over your curriculum. I think that’s it. 🙂

    I kinda think I love you, girl. I wish we were closer, we could sit around together and make snarky sarcastic comments to each other all day and let our kids run wild with your chickens. Everyone has chickens in North Carolina…you’d fit right in. Think about it.
