- I have been married for 20 years to a great husband and we have 8 children ranging in age from 1 to 18 years. I am a homeschooling mom, which can be very challenging. I love sewing, knitting, reading, gardening and have recently started oil painting. I love to create. I really want to have a blog to show off some of the stuff I create, but I also want to share about my life and family. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

It is Saturday morning and we are back home. This is what I basically did while on vacation. I would sit in the rocking chair on the porch while drinking my coffee, enjoying the breeze and knitting. I am wearing some pajama pants I made out of an old, ripped pair of sheets. You can't really get more relaxing than this. Of course, the little ones would come out every once in a while and want to climb up in my lap, but mostly they would watch the older children fish. Now we are back home and Samuel and Ava are fighting over whether they will watch Little Bill or Dora : ) Back to real life LOL
I did finish both booties and started on a third one, this time in pink. As you can see, they aren't the same size, I guess this is what happens when your brain is too relaxed lol I will have to make two more to match each one, I can't give this odd sized pair to anyone.
Today, I need to clean all the cat fur off of my furniture. Oh, and we still have the little kitten : O Dh is NOT happy! He was really not happy when she jumped on his head at 7am this morning. The cats never do crazy things like this to me, just the one person in the house who doesn't like animals. I really need to find her a home, but we are so attached to her, so it is going to be hard to give her away. She is just the sweetest little thing and I want to make sure the person I give her to will take good care of her.
I can't believe it is already the end of July! Public school will start soon, and it seems like the summer break just began. We don't start homeschooling until after Labor day, but that will be here before I know it. I need to get all of the curriculum bought and organized. We are trying several new things this year, hopefully the children will do well. The main new curriculum we will be using is Teaching Textbooks for the two high school boys' math. I know several families that have used this and they say it is awesome. I am also looking for a new Science and History curriculum for Sydney and Isabella. They do these two subjects together since they are only a year apart in school. I know there are several homeschooling moms who read my blog, any suggestions? I need to make the most of my last few weeks of freedom LOL I know the moms whose kids go to school are counting down until they have their freedom back : D
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend : )
