AIM Program

Good news! Sage was accepted into the AIM program at TLC. He'll be attending school with 9 other 2nd graders two days a week where he will do all of his work except for Physical Education and Social Studies which he will do at home the other 3 days. It's the best of both worlds and I am so excited and really look forward to seeing Sage grow because of this.

Happy 7th!

Happy Birthday to the little man who stole my heart seven years ago today! Sage is the most amazing kid ever. He is loving and kind and is my little cuddle bug. I'm not sure how much longer it will last so I am taking full advantage of it now. Here are seven things that we love about him.

1. How loving he is.
2. His fabulous imagination.
3. His warped sense of humor that he gets from his Grandma & Mom.
4. The fact that he mentions his Grandma & Hayden every night in his prayers.
5. He almost always will play whatever Aurora wants him to play.
6. He loves helping Daddy fix things.
7. How excited he gets over the littlest of things, he really loves to laugh.

We love you Sage with all of our hearts.

Love- Mom, Dad & Aurora

Lava Fossils

We made fossils last week and we are just now getting around to painting them so they looked like cooled lava. We learned about Mt. Vesuvius and and how it destroyed and preserved the ancient civilization of Pompeii, Italy.

The kids for once are taking a real interest in learning and I couldn't be happier. They are responding better than I thought they would to the Homeschool lifestyle.

Summer Fun

I can't believe that it has been a month since I last posted anything. It has been a crazy busy summer and I just haven't had the energy to post at the end of the day. Sage, Aurora and the daycare kids have been keeping me busy and tiring me out so I've been going to bed as soon as dinner is over.

We are all very excited about the new direction our family is headed and can't wait for school to start in September and look forward to implementing the homeschool lifestyle in our home.
