Choo Choo Train

Benjamin is absoultely obsessed with trains, he loves Thomas the train, he loves passenger trains, and he loves freight trains.
When daddy gets home from work Benjamin runs up and says "Daddy", gives him a big hug and then says, "Choo Choo?" So Dad takes Benjamin near the tracks and they sit and wait for trains to come by. Sometimes the train conductor sticks his arm out the window and waves back. So cute.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Now officially a senior citizen, but who ran 2.2 miles in 10 minutes and 20 seconds! (Better than I can do!) Thanks for all you do and all you are! Have fun enjoying your discounts at Denny's!

Homeschool week one is almost over, and has gone really great! I'm not waking up as early I'd like because I've been staying up late transcribing. So we've been running a little behind and the kids haven't been doing their chores because of it. Transcribing is done and chores will start next week!

Benjamin has been a trooper, and loves to be a part of the school work, he has coloring books and crayons and pencils and his very own little desk. He does like to jump on Bubba when he's sitting on the floor doing his work though...

Alex (Bubba) is doing great with all of his work and is already ahead. He learns really quickly. His handwriting on the other hand is going to need some work. He is enjoying science and is having a lot of fun going around the house measuring all sorts of things.

Katelyn is loving homeschool and is really enjoying the book she is reading and is asking to read it during her breaks--this has NEVER happened before. I'm so very excited for that. Her work is coming along really well. There's a lot more work for a 4th grader and so we are having to adjust our schedule and might end up spending more time in the school room than I would like.

Most of all I am just loving having my sweet kids home with me all day. They are getting along pretty well with eachother, and it's nice to not have to hear about friends at school being mean. Who knew I'd be a homeschooling mom?

Just the other day I was tempted to say that I wish I would get sick so someone would take care of me for once. I NEVER get sick. 2 boys sick plus a husband. This morning Kate and I are both getting sick, I take back any thoughts of wanting to be sick. Everyone else is sick, so who's going to take care of me now? :)

Car conversation

Alex: Mom, does the moon move in the sky? Like does it jump around?

Mom: No.

Alex: Well then, why is it following us?
