If you haven't noticed, computer time has been cut WAY down. Since Eric got back, we have been rushing around trying to get things ready for the baby. Not only did I not have a single outfit for our little guy but there were other things we had to get since we are having a home birth. Finally I think everything is in order.
The girls and I have also been visiting the nursing home with Eric's Aunt Trisha on Wednesdays as well. First we stop by some individual rooms to visit, sing and recite some verses. Afterwards we meet in a little room to do a Bible lesson and more singing. I have loved being able to help and getting a chance to play the piano. I only managed one picture of the girls with a sweet, Christian lady named Madeline.
Walmart has become less intimidating, though I still prefer the smaller Walmart to the Super Walmart. I also found a really nice children's thrift store which I am in love with. Anna was especially excited because they had a long, pretty "princess" dress (Christmas plaid on bottom, black velvet on top) which she had specifically prayed for.
Any spare time I have has been spent devouring books. I think my book wish list is about a mile long. Even though I feel SO blessed to have the internet and be able to read almost anything I want there, there is nothing quite like holding a book in my hands. Not that I need my wish list any longer, but I'd LOVE to know of any good books you are reading now. Also, we are planning on buying some homeschool books while in the states and I would love your opinions. My husband is leaning towards just sticking with one curriculum and he is leaning towards Abeka, but he also supports any other suggestions I make. It feels like such a big responsibility and sometimes I feel so overwhelmed. I'm leaning towards mixing different things, but when I am overwhelmed, just consider going with Abeka. Would love any advice, tips and suggestions you have.
Well, think I'm going to close for now as Eric just came in and my mind is unfocused now.
