Missing me? ;)

I'm officially the worst blogger ever. So sorry. My own family keeps saying every day, "when are you going to update the blog?" I do have good reasons though! :) I have been so busy with the usual school work, and in addition, have been working on college applications. In fact, I've officially applied to 3 schools! And then there's been work and doing things with friends... so anyway. We're doing well! Homeschooling with them is going great! AnnaClaire especially is LOVING kindergarten! She works so hard with all of her work and just loves the fact that she's has school! Gracie is doing pretty well, too. She thinks it's funny that Mom is her teacher! There's not much Mom can do with her without the language skills, but she is learning the basics and enjoying it.

The "older" girls are loving their sports, too. They had their little picture day on Saturday. Can't wait to see how those turned out. :)

Life with the four of them is busy, as Mom will tell you very quickly. But we wouldn't have it any other way!

Enjoy the pictures~ The first few are from the first day of school! :)

I understand. I have been a terrible blogger lately, and an even worse blog looker. Haha. Good luck with the college apps. We Did that last year and it is not fun. I can't wait to here where you are going. Our daughter ended up going to UNCG because it was close, haha.

I was just thinking about you guys this afternoon and wondering if I had somehow lost you from my RSS feed. Glad all is well. Be sure to let us know if you decide on the university near us ~ we'd be happy to be your family away from home, and even have three littles that would love your attention!
Charlie's smile just engulfs his entire face! Seeing him smile makes me smile too.
And where did you guys get those neat trays? I would like to have some for our school time.

I ordered those trays from a Montesorri supply co. We've got them in those small and also large sizes. BUT Lakeshore Learning also sells those trays in both sizes. Not sure if there is one near you, but there's one in the small town very near ours. Maybe on your next visit you can check it out. Very near the CFA where we met for lunch. :)

It's so cool that your mom can be their teacher! Good Luck with your applications to college. I'm sure you'll be accepted at all that you'll apply to and then will just come the big decision of which one to choose. :0)
Tell you mom I said hello! :0)

I'm with you (and your sweet Mom) on the busy-ness! This time of year is crazy busy!!! And the homeschooling and language barrier ... ditto!

Hugs to you and your family! Miss you all!
