Good Morning

Good morning everyone and Happy Tuesday to you all. Sam decided that sleep was optional last night, so Eric and I were up A LOT! I did not get a chance to work out this morning, had to give her an early morning bottle and was letting Eric catch a few more winks before getting up.

TOday is the day we head into NYC to the new Mega Lego Store. Kids (as well as I)are excited! Bubby (my mom) will be traveling with us on the Metro North Railroad.

It's going to be a hot one in the city today! brining lots of water with me....

I will post pictures when we return..

Already had a cup of tea this afternoon to give me a little caffeine boost.

What a hot week here in NY. We had a playdate today at my friends house...she introduced us to her new puppy...fun time! Great food and great company!

Took the kids to the animal shelter after the playdate to drop off the donations we collected at our Monday luncheon They were happy to see us dropping off stuff and we took a walk around the "cat" room...oh mygosh, so many kittens and cats. Molly was so moved by it, she cried the entire way home. She felt bad that they had no families to belong too. 8(

This weekend we are meeting my DS's GF's father and her brother. Having a bbq.

They are coming over to help out with the kids...play....watch...help in general, while I clean and get lesson plans done....today was just cleaning..the house needed it! So I feel great when I am all clean and organized!

So far....so good

So today was a busy one so far and it's only 1:30 pm! I took the kids to the local grocery store so we could return many bottles and cans. I wanted to teach them about recycling and the money part of the whole thing. Molly did the plastic (standing in a shopping cart - she LOVED IT...Zachary did the cans, HE LOVED IT! I did the glass. All in all, great time! Then we went to a playdate which was fun! Then farmers market (not too impressed) and of course the dollar store....lots of great "school supplies" there! I am going to make a homemade salsa for tacos tonight while the baby is sleeping...tomorrow off to the beach!

Summer Fun Idea

Set up a backyard scavenger hunt for the kids! Make up index cards with items that they kids can find in the yard. Take a great Summer evening and let the kids go wild. Some suggestions: Find something Green, Find something silky, find something brown, find something bumpy etc...we did this for Molly's birthday and the kids had a great fun!

Lap books lap books and more lap books

I am on a roll today making Lap books for the kids. I made a numbers one (1-5) for Molly, a camping one for Zachary, a dog one for Zachary and have stuff cut out for a cat and bird one. We are going to be doing "An Animal of the Week"....

I have to get out my Letter of Intent to the school district next week...then we are OFFICIALLY "on the books" I guess you could call it...

Let's see - yesterday was mine and my hubby's 10 yr (being together) anniversary and he decided to play softball instead of coming home to see me...honestly, they needed 1 more guy or they would have to forfeit and he did not want that to happen, but I was not happy. I got White roses when he got home, but that did not make up for it.

Tomorrow is our 1st beach day! Looking forward to the weekly visits!

Hump day

So it's Wednesday and our usual beach day, however, the weather is not in our favor today, so we are having a playdate at the house instead. Kids are not liking getting back into our homeschool routine...

Found a new site today that looks great for the kids for the fall;

www.theheadoftheclass.com FREE and educational!

What a great day!

Woke up this morning and worked out at 5 am, as I am trying to do from now on. Feel great! The day is perfect so far...60 degrees and we are on the deck enjoying the morning. I think we are going to get the bouncy house out today and let the kids jump til they drop...lol....

Summer School starts up tomorrow

We are gearing up for Summer school session tomorrow. It's been 2 weeks since we have officially "schooled" and I tell you the kids are in need of some structure! I have let them be on "vacation" for the two weeks and it's taking it's toll on us all...lol...It's an abbreviated version of what school is during the year but enough to keep their minds sharpe! 1st having breakfast with my cousin and her kids in NJ!

Weather was awesome

We took a trip to our local farmers market today. Met up with some friends and just had the most wonderful day. Weather was 73 and no humidity! Putting the last touches on Summer school which starts on Monday! Looking forward to getting the kids back into a routine. TGIF

Our Camping Trip

I am calling it the "National Lampoons Camping Vacation"....and for good reason!

My two older children (Zachary and Molly) along with a friend, Tina and her two boys who are 2 and 4 just got back from a 4 day, 3 night camping trip to Jim Thorpe, PA (just on the far side of the Pocono Mtns.)

My Top 10 Lowpoints:

1. 5 miles from home on the way - christened my new truck tires by running over a woodchuck

2. 20 mins into the 2 1/2 hour trip children are asking "are we there yet?"

3. 45 mins into the trip children are crying they want to go home all the while everyone was riding our bumper!

4. Arrive at the campsite...no cell service at all

5. Campsite is "small" to say the least.

6. 2 hours after arrival...my DS cuts his finger real good on a jack knife

7. Children (all 4) at times have breakdowns lasting WAY too long.

8. Campsite next to us was REAL loud - of course it might have been their 24 inch flat screen TV they had blasting with the hockey gam…

Summertime Homeschooling

We are on a two week "summer vacation" right now and we will resume a limited schedule for homeschooling starting the 14th of June. Zachary is working on 1st/2nd grade work and Molly preschool/kindergarten work. I have Sam working on puzzles and blocks mostly. It's been an exciting year so far! Looking forward to what is ahead and making some lapbooks this year!
