Home School 101

Here we are, day 3 of home school. Hayden is loving it. It is actually going much better than I thought it would be. I knew God had been pushing us in this direction for awhile. Zach was a little jealous at first but his sports are way too important to give up to be home schooled to him.
Hayden has been rocking the math. It has been some pre-algebra and I was afraid it was too advanced for him but he has been doing well with it!

Out With The Old And In With The New

Yes, I am a loser yet again by not getting this done sooner but I enjoyed the holidays but I am glad they are over. Time to move on with life and see what God has in store us. Here is a picture of our lovely tree. Shawn and I had started the red, white and blue theme the first Christmas after 9/11. It is really cool. We have firemen, police officers and American flag decorations. We have added a lot of the kids ornaments over the years. It shows what our family is about and I really like it.
Why is it when boys hit 13 they don't want their pictures taken anymore? Zach is way too cool for all of this (by the way, he is now officially taller than me and reminds me of this everyday). Hayden is still just the sweetest kid that always has a nice smile for me.

Our boys enjoyed the snow very much. This was Hayden's creation that he did all by himself. I think he did a great job!

Shawn and his pup, McCoy. They love each other and Shawn has this pup working like a well oiled machine except for McCoys interest in cords (phone chargers, DSi chargers, etc....)

McCoy has been such a great addition to our family. We are so blessed with this fabulous animal.
