Your kiddos are so cute and have gotten so big!!

I thought you had decided to do the charter school? I think we are going to do Connections Academy (online public school) for Jedi (7th grade next year)

Cute blog template!

Hope things are going good for you, God bless!

OH.MY.GOSH! I loved the pictures of the little ones!

Blessings for a great next year and a quick and painless ending of this year (I think my two years will blur together - ah, to figure out how to go faster this year!)

Looks like a lot of fun!!! I love the little caption for the picture of your little man at the end. Perfect! Just stopping over from Sanctus Simplicitus, I see I have some visitors from your blog. I'll have to spend some more time looking around :) If you need a Catholic homeschool planner for this coming year we just released one that allows planning for home school and the liturgical year. God bless!
