Are We There Yet?

February 21, 2008 at 10:31 am (Uncategorized)

We have arrived!  We are "there"! Our whole family is under one roof again!  It is not our roof, but thanks to our gracious friends who are letting us stay with them, our family is back together. 

The trip was mostly uneventful.  The kids kept us laughing and Dad kept us moving forward. 

In case anyone is wondering what we are doing for school during this time….I limited myself to bringing 2 crates of "school" stuff.  One is FULL of books.  We brought all our American Girl books. all our Magic Tree House books, lots of readers for my daughter.  My oldest son brought a dozen or so books of his own. 

The second crate is full of….LAPBOOKING supplies!  YAY!!!!  I figure this is the perfect time to push everything else aside and just have fun lapbooking! 

We also have one backpack with everyones Math.  My oldest son will be doing most everything on the computer.  He is listening to books on LibriVox.com,  playing at spellingcity.com, reading his Bible online at bibleina year.org, and he is working on his Armenia lapbook.  He is using the Free Country Lapbook from Homeschoolshare.com.

I am sure a good deal of our schooling will take place out and about.  We have lots of places to explore in this new and very different place we hope to soon call home. 

As for me today is my BIRTHDAY…there is nothing in the world I would rather have today than my family back under one roof!

    Happy Birthday!!!! What state is this new home in? So glad you are all back together. I had no idea until you wrote that post a while back how long you had been living separately. I know that must have been really hard.
