Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

I have not been blogging much lately. One of the reasons is that the computer chair is often occupied...

As I often, and lovingly say - Stupid Cats! Of course I couldn't bear to move them, they look so snuggly and comfy. Most days it is just one cat in the chair so I simply move him to the back of the chair so I can perch on the edge. Like I said... stupid cats!

Anyway, other things I have been up to...

Home preschool nearly every day. We have missed a few days as colds and the flu have passed through our house, but other than that we have been having school. Now that I am organized it doesn't take long to do each days lesson plan - just takes a little diligence on my part! It is going fairly well, although I have to often be quite creative (which should also read 'be quite silly') in order to keep their attention and keep on task. Of course there are many frustrating moments, but in the end they are all learning and it is so fun to watch them as they learn and are excited because they know they are learning. One of the things we are working on is to recognize their names, so one day we were going to paint on a paper that I had printed their names on. It quickly turned from nicely painting with brushes to this...

Outings have been very limited because hubby's truck is in the shop and he has been driving the van to work. But we did manage to get to our first MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting last week. It was refreshing to be with other moms of very young children, and the kids were able to be in their own class. They had a blast playing with the other kids.

This week we will start our weekly class called Tumble Bunnies. The kids really have no idea what to expect, all they know is that bunnies don't tumble they hop. They are getting quite annoyed with me and keep trying to show me how bunnies hop! Very cute!!

A new way to read! I recently stumbled upon a fun way to get in some reading time. The book publisher Thomas Nelson has a book review program for bloggers. It was easy to sign up and I have already finished my first book. I will post that review soon. The best part about this whole book review process is that I now have a perfectly legitimate excuse to read and blog about it!

Other than school and keeping up with the never ending cooking, laundry and housework I have been busy planning. I have a new crafting adventure! It had been eating up lots of my time and thought. Curious aren't you! But I am still working on it, so I will leave you all in suspense for a little while longer....Soon though, very soon!


Lol, what cute pics!!!

I'll have to check out that book.

I can't believe you're leaving us hanging like that!
