New Year’s Eve

We don’t make a big deal about New Year’s here…we used to, but then we got old, I mean, we had children! Smile Our day is pretty quiet really. We have a few that are sick, so they are laying low.


I’ve been busy planning our homeschool for the next month. I planned 5 weeks for each of the older three. It went pretty smoothly actually. It’s rather exciting because Banana Taffy is going to finish his Biology book this month and his Algebra 2 book! Does that mean he’s done with 10th grade? I’m not really sure. It’s an unusual thing teaching these older ones, it’s not like I can just take a day off here and there. I can’t just decide, “I don’t feel like doing school today.” They keep me accountable and I have to keep up with them! I love it! It’s exhausting but wonderful!


I think they all feel they’ve had a long enough break, except maybe Strawberry Taffy who would be content to keep busy all day doing anything BUT school work! lol I’m not sure I had a long enough break though! Phew! I feel like I made a lot of fun things happen for people around me, but didn’t really get to just participate in anything fun, you know, that I didn’t plan. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not unhappy in anyway, just reflecting back on the past two weeks.

I took the 1 hour gestational diabetes test last week, and I failed it. UGH! So yesterday I had to take the boring 3 hour test. It actually wasn’t too bad, they gave me a room to hang out in and the clinic actually had WIFI-who knew?! I haven’t heard back from the lab so I’m thinking that’s a good thing. Last time they called me the same day as the test!

Now I’m cleaning the homeschool room and playroom…are you wondering how I’m doing that and writing a blog post at the same time…well, it’s very simply because I mopped the playroom floor and I’m writing while I’m waiting for it to dry, which is probably about now!

I hope you are having a nice New Year’s Eve too! May the Lord bless you in all your endeavors this year and may you grow to KNOW HIM more in 2011.
