Big Blessings in "Small" Packages

Who We Are

We are gearing up for the new 2010/2011 school year. Because of my difficult pregnancy, we are doing some school this summer already, but our official first week of Fall '10 will be the first week of August.

Whitley is going into 4th grade. She just turned 9 in June. She loves swimming, drawing, playing outside, and reading. She has been taking a sewing and crocheting class this summer and has really enjoyed it! She's looking forward to taking ice skating in the fall. Whitley is an excellent big sister and loves to help with her baby brother.

Melody is 5.5 and is going into K. She is SO excited about being a "Kindergarten Girl". We've been working on letters this last year and I think she's pretty close to learning to read. She is very dramatic and loves to act and sing. I can't wait to get this girl into a drama class! She will be taking ice skating with Whitley.

Noelle is 4.5 and will be going to public school for PreK this year. She continues to have some delays and will receive cognitive and speech therapy through Tri-District. I'd love to homeschool her but she has the attention span of a gnat and thrives on a lot of structure. We like to keep our homeschool days a little flexible. She's very excited about school and I think she'll love it. Noelle is a charming, sweet, and loving little girl and has adapted well to being a big sister. God has blessed us with a unique opportunity and Noelle will be taking a dance class for children with special needs this fall. We're excited!

John Isaac is 4 months old and a delight to our whole family. We love to make him smile. He is an active baby and is just raring to go. We know that he'll be mobile before we know it. He is growing too fast. We thank God for our fourth blessing!

Jeff has been working at Windstream for 3 years. He enjoys the challenge and they keep him hopping! He does not have a lot of time for hobbies between work and family. I (obviously) continue to be a stay-at-home homeschooling mom and love it, most days. It is a lot of work to teach, parent, clean, run errands, day after day but the kids are growing so fast and I'm so blessed to be able to spend so much time with them!
