This is what we have been up to...-Enjoying every ray of sunshine possible , soaking in spring, staying outside until dinner, catching ladybugs
-Preparing for the 2nd birthday party for the Cub. I made him this outfit (oliver + s playsuit in brown linen) and crown for his gala. The oliver + s pattern was so simple and it is so cute, I sure wish they had more boy patterns! The only thing is, he will not wear or let me get near him with either one. He sees them and states in a very nonchalant way "Don't wanna" this is usually followed by me convincing him how awesome the outfit is all the while him believing one word I say. I have decided to embroider a tiny owl on it and give it a go because he loves owls. I also have some beyond cute acorn buttons that have yet to be sewn on so heres hoping that the final product will be a little more enticing to his particular sense of style.
This is the house that I am hoping and praying with all of my being that we are able to buy. There are some stipulations to the sale and some problems that we do not know the full extent of. I am hell bent and determined to do everything in my power to make it ours. We walked (without permission but it is empty) and fell in love. It had such great energy and I have always wanted a yellow house so it must be fate! Some positive house buying vibes sent my way would be much appreciated.
I have been reading these books:
(Homeschooling : take a deep breath--you can do this! by Terrie Lynn Bittner. The well-adjusted child : the social benefits of homeschooling by Rachel Gathercole.Teach your own : the John Holt book of homeschooling / John Holt, Patrick Farenga.)
and seriously considering homeschooling, it feels right. Today at the park we met another homeschooling family who invited us to an event next week, it will be nice to talk to other women who have been doing it for a while. I never thought I would be a homeschooler but it really feels like it is what is right for us. We will see! Any other book or resource suggestions would be great!
I missed last weeks "this is" chosen by Dees from Daisy in Lala Land so here it is..
This is my unconditional, passionately loved and favorite book... I have changed my mind a few times since I knew what the topic was, it is really hard for me to choose I have so many favorites but here is one that makes me cry everytime I read it and I think I will always be able to relate to it now that I am a mother it is a heart felt book and the story behind the book is so moving also.
I also love, Oh The Places You'll go and Everything is Illuminated but if I listed those that would be more than one.
I have been tagged coming next along with some fun birthday goodies found on etsy!
