Week 20

This week we will be trying to stay on pace! Last 2 weeks have been a little hard but this is the first time all year that we have struggles so I am actually alright with it. Homeschooling is hard! It's not an easy task that us mothers take on. Pray for me this week & I for you! This week I did get my printer fixed!! WOOHOO, a homeschool mother without a printer is like a bee without a hive! Kyle done wonderful on his ball games over the weekend his team is 5/6. Over the weekend we found some wonderful pen pals!! Very excited about this. Kyle has therapy this week for CAPD, which is going wonderful, we have been going for almost 8 months and I do see some improvements however there is still much to learn about this and much to heal. Alexis hopefully will have Gymnastics if it doesn't snow/ice this week, this would be week 4 of no gymnastics due to bad weather.We have 4 more weeks until break for our 2 weeks off school. Kevin will be gone a lot this week as well, so I pray that I will be strong and have no melt downs because the children and I miss him greatly when he is gone. Although its doing us some good for him to once again be away. However its been 2 years he has been home and going back to school and work this week will be a challenge for him and us as well. I pray that he will keep up his great grades in school with once again having a job. When he started to school a little over 2 years ago it was hard but soon after lost his job so he has drew unemployment benefits until next week, so of course he had to go back to work, he has found something so I am thankful! This weekend was also Zac's Birthday Party, we had a blast. He enjoyed all his presents and quality time with friends and family. He is also finally feeling some better from that nasty cold he has had.
