Hoping for the best with ge farm Alicia!! Glad things have quieted down! I can relate to the off kilter emotions, between fighting jet lag and all the stuff over the last few weeks of flying home and loosing my granddad etc I'm a mess too. Plus I came home to a bunch of stress and didn't get any downtime to adjust. I've been really on edge with my kids and husband lately, yesterday I made it my goal to not get angry and just had to be very intentional to not let myself get irritated....harder than it sounds really but I did ok until the very end of the day. Hope you can get to feeling better soon!

You said you need to get the boys out of your hair, remind me how old are they and do you homeschool?

I do homeschool. They are 3 and 5. I am going to try to be intentional today, too. :)

Oh man 3 and 5, do not put too much pressure on yourself at that age!!! (Speaking from experience I PROMISE!). :) I have a 10, 6, 4 and almost 1 year old and the 10 year old is the only one doing structured school.....and I use the term "structured" relatively loosely lol. But I DO get the "need to get away from them" feeling as a homeschool mom when you sometimes feel like you don't have any breathing room!!

Alicia, is your homeschooling for your boys preschool curriculum?

I'm sorry to hear of your loss, Sabrina. Hopefully things will get better shortly and you can eliminate some stress.

Yep... They are hopeless! Ha!! Mostly PK, Gabriel is also learning to read. Not overly structured. My 13 yo is structured, but not the boys.

Oh how I loved teaching pre-k! I miss it so much! The projects we did were so fun. Maybe one day in the future when my boy is older I will go back to teaching pre-k.

There is always tomorrow Krista!

Good news on the farm today. Matt's dad met with the POA/CPA today. The other "partners" didn't convince him to raise the price! $120k it is!

With Easter being next month I have been contemplating on what traditions I should start with my new mini family. What are some of your traditions? Do you or did you have Easter baskets for your kids? If so, what did you put inside the baskets? Anything else?

Yes, we have always done Easter baskets. I have decided to change that, though, this year. I don't want my children to "miss out", but I feel Easter should be sacred for Christ, so this year we are going to have a Spring Baskets, which are just a Springtime gift. I always put in a small bit of candy. Of all holiday treats, Easter has some of my favs (yes, I like peeps...it is so bad!). Also, a book, and usually something that encourages outside time, which we spend quite a bit; kites, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, gardening gloves, etc...

Alicia, I'm so glad you got some good news!!

Krista, I'm still working on Easter traditions. We don't do "Easter bunny" but we do hunt eggs, we also usually paint wooden eggs, save egg shells to paint and make confetti eggs out of. Speaking of I better start saving some eggs!!! They usually get a movie or devotional book or something and candy but not from the "bunny" if that makes sense. I would like to make it bigger just haven't figured out how. Good luck makign your own traditions-it is fun to get to do that with your family!!

Alicia-Peeps are so nasty!! That is one treat I simply can not eat. My family always freezes them. Really weird. My favorite treat is the Starburst red jelly beans! I eat them tell I'm sick! I like the idea of bubbles in the basket. I think my lititle one will really enjoy that.

Sabrina-I love egg shell painting! One lady I use to work with made a confetti egg. They always look so cool. Maybe I will make some this year. Better start saving my egg shells now.

It's been a while girls, sorry!

Alicia I'm so happy the farm purchase is working out for you. I know what you mean about the boys driving you nuts. I have two boys eighteen moths apart and they make me crazy! I'm so happy they have each other to play with, but man, they can be so annoying together.

Last week was full of car trouble for us. My husbands car needed a new fuel injector. No problem, took it in. While it was at the shop on Tuesday night I drove home from my friends house (alone) and it was snowing, not much but it was slippery, so I ended up in a ditch. Luckily someone stopped and helped me out. I was able to drive the car home, and I'm ok. Not injured at all. The car is injured though. Turns out it's totaled! I couldn't believe it. We are getting a van before this baby is born, since it's unavoidable now with four kids, but the car is really not that bad. We're just going to fix what we have to, and keep it anyway. I felt so dumb though. I mean, it's literally snowed maybe three times this year and I ended up in a ditch.

We have some new curriculum that came in that we're starting this week for school, so that's exciting. Prima Latina (very beginner, basic Latin), and Story of the World. Anyone used those before? I feel weird about starting something in February, but that's the way it worked out. These boys can be resistant to change, so I hope they don't give me too much trouble.

Erin, we use story of the world....kind of. I just have my older daughter read it like a novel. We don't do any of the extra activities just the regular book. The activities would be too much and I'd never get around to it. We do latin but not that particular curriculum but I think I've heard good things about it!

We did sing song Latin, but I'm excited to use this Latin curriculum because they learn prayers in it. There's a common table prayer that's very close to what we use every meal, and the Lord's Prayer, which they say every night before bed, so they'll get lots of practice with those. I am planning to use the activity book with story of the world, but I know what you mean. There's a lot in it. I think the boys do better with extras though.

Yes, Sydney is 10. I'm sure the activities are really fun but this is the first year we used it and she is old enough to just read it. It is just filling in things we have learned a little about. I take a really relaxed approach to school and just feel like for me the activities would be too much to try to do. I'm already overwhelmed lol. I hope you enjoy them though, I know people who do them and love it!

Oh getting to "all the things".... It is a lot of work, isn't it...!? Isabelle has expressed an interest in Latin. I used to want to learn Latin, but everyone said it was a "dead language" and a waste of my time. Wish I had not listened.

As far as History, we are using Notgrass American History right now. I really like it! I will be going on to World when we finish this one, which will be awhile!

I ordered this to do as a family a few days ago! https://simplycharlottemason.com/store/genesis-deuteronomy-ancient-egypt/

Alicia! That's even worse!! Its funny how we all have one of those nasty things we eat. When I was younger my nasty food choice was a mayonnaise sandwich. Simply that. Bread and mayonnaise. I can't eat that now!

I'm glad you guys know so much about homeschooling. When the time comes, I will know who to talk to for getting started if that's the route I choose.

Erin, sorry to hear of all your car troubles. I'm glad you are safe. Accidents are so scary.

Prays for Shannon's daughter. I hope she is okay and heals quickly.

I didn't think it was back then, but it sure is now. Glad to hear someone else out there is like me! This got me thinking of a cute boy I used to babysit. For lunch he wanted a peanut butter and mustard sandwich. He told me they always made them and he ate the whole thing. Very interesting.

I used to eat liverwurst sandwiches at my uncles house when I was little. Yuck. I'm with you on the peeps though, Alicia. I like them too. I don't buy them every year, but I do like them. Come to think of it, I like most candy that people find disgusting. Candy corn, orange circus peanuts, black licorice... I don't eat candy that much, I'd much prefer dark chocolate, but I do like those.

Your right Erin! You do like all the gross candies! Another terrible candy is those peach rings! I am the same way. I would much rather eat chocolate. Maybe this is why I'm not a fan of many candies.
