I will start with the fact that I have been so incredibly busy with the starting of the Spencer family homeschool for the 2008-2009 school year. We have been homeschooling for years but I feel an increased since of pressure this year. That sweet darling in the yellow is now in the 11 th. grade. I only have 2 more years to instill all of the many values and lessons I still have for her to learn. I can not believe time has gone this fast. I remember when she was just a tiny thing that I rocked daily. I want these next 2 years to go at turtle speed and be filled with lots of fun and tons of memories!!!
So the last few weeks I have been readying myself for this school year. I have been pouring over teachers manuals and writing lesson plans. I have also been doing a ton of organizing, as in our move, I lost a school room. Oh how devastating. I hope to get one back in our kitchen/ school room remodel but that will be a while. So for now I am making do with a dining room/ school room. So far so good.
Here are my reluctant pupils on their first day. They have been sleeping late all summer and Monday morning Hubby and I got them up at 6:30 to pray and get our day started. Trust me the day went great!!!
Now, here is some of my other exciting news......... My honey is putting up the light fixture that I won from Our Cozy Nest. It came in the mail yesterday and I had it all ready for Hubby to put up when he got home from work. You didn't think I could wait did you?!
Oh, and by the way, I know those blinds are hideous. One thing at a time.....
Isn't it just lovely?!
Now for my next little lovely.....
I got my tassel from Susie at Bienvenue on Saturday. Now let me tell you, I have been doing some coveting over these tassels. I have wanted a Susie Harris tassel or a Nester tassel for quite some time but I just can not justify $25-$30 on a tassel when I am redoing a whole house. Then Susie goes and does a thing like offering these for next to nothing. What was she thinking? Well, I had to grab it and grab it I did. It came in the mail Saturday and here is her new home. Isn't she lovely?!
And she came with these little cuties. I almost want to frame them. Susie what would you suggest I do with them?
I added these last couple of pics. for no particular reason. This is the sky this past week before one of our many storms we have had lately. I just thought it was a beautiful.
