i'm not sure it's really a suprise to anyone, but after years of reasarch we've decided to homeschool our kids. and so i've been inspired to start a new blog (is 3 too many haha?!?) i plan to document our schooling efforts daily there and i'm hoping it won't get too boring. i'll still use this blog too but i'm not sure how it will all break down. we have a few weeks to figure out a schedule and then we'll let the good times roll!
can you believe Jaedyn is 9 months old already?! i can't! we went to visit this week like usual and here are a few pictures. i'll be doing her real 9mo photo shoot next week at the beach.... stay tuned!
playing peek-a-boo in her bedroom while Neeks entertained my kids... i love switching for a couple hours a week :o)
getting very good at crawling!
she like to eat grass.... moo
Cameron still doesn't quite understand Jae
and Jaedyn still doesn't quite understand Cameron... he was roaring at her :o)
we have a ton of little tiny tomatoes and even more flowers that will in a few weeks turn into ready to eat vine ripened dinners! i'm watching this little flower. each week i'll update with a new picture!
every year we get a lot of cicada's who enjoy our trees as much as we do. we normally walk around and could the shells they leave behind on the trees, leaves, etc. (last years total was in the 40's) this year the kids took it to another level. yipee!
each child gave themselves jobs.... Cameron's jobs included knocking them off the tree with a large stick
actually touching the shells and transporting them
and whenever possible chasing Mayden around the yard with them
Mayden's jobs included carrying the bug cage
and making this face (surprising for my little bug lover)
adorable little critter's aren't they?!?
Cameron thinks so. he's making a pile of them in our yard. 11 today. more tomorrow.
