Been busy on the homefront since getting laid off from my job.

I have been busy since my last day of work, July 29. (Actually my parent's Anniversary)  I have been painting. So far we have 3 rooms painted and put back together. Other projects in the works now, plus beginning to home school our 5 children. I have always wanted to home school our children. My husband has finally agreed but is curious how we will accomplish everything each day. I will be praying very hard for mercy and guidance. The children are excited and wish that we could start right now. I want to wait until we have everything in order.  I hope to order our oldest son's curriculum and a few of the missing things for the other boys tomorrow. It should be here pretty quick and then we'll get started.  I know that a schedule will be a must! That is what is going to really help us. I just have to work that out. We will be doing Pre-K, 2nd grade, 4th grade: for the twins and 9th grade. My biggest challenge I believe will be keeping our Preschooler  quiet calm occupied while the others are working. There again that is where the schedule will come into play.

I haven't had time to work on any of my blocks that I need to finish. That is really looming over me. I have to get them done and send them all to their new homes. I also have a class this Saturday to attend. It usually doesn't take long but I have to get my block done for my class.

My sister had her baby today. She is a little cutie. Emily Elizabeth. She weighs 7 lb 2 oz and has a head full of hair. MG and I went to the hospital and I do believe that MG would have brought her home with us if I would have allowed. She told me that the baby could sit in the back seat on the way home.  :-)  I love that girl.  Boy did she feel big when my sister ask her if she wanted to hold her new cousin! I got a picture of her. My husband said, "Is she really holding her?" She was but I had my left hand behind her while I took the picture.

Well, enough for today. Just wanted to update my blog. I think I am busier now that I'm not working than when I was working. I know the kids have enjoyed having me home. I know I have enjoyed it myself.
