Friday from where I stand

from where I stand


woke up to it being a little cool out but it is warmer now.
so happy it is Friday!
maybe I will get some things done this weekend?
I sure hope so!

I am still loving taking photos and editing them with my iPhone.
I just need to figure a way to sort and share them on the blog.
It took me forever and a day to email them to myself and get them on the computer.
I had over 700 photos from as far back as October 2010.
Joel then figured out how to get them on the computer,
but I hate asking him to do it for me every time I take a photo.
So, I will just email them to my self for now.

Wishing you a happy Friday and a great weekend xoxo

lunch time

love and kisses

Noah loves when Joel comes home for lunch. He gets lots of love and kisses
from Joel. And he loves showing him the things he has done for the day.
We sure love this boy with all our hearts :)

Last night  base sirens were going off for tornado warnings and watch. We have no basements so I get so nervous. It was crazy out side. I was happy when it was finally over. I don't think I will get used to the weather here at all? I think I would take the hot, hot days of Texas over this scary stuff here? lol

Hope your Thursday is wonderful xoxo

tracing the letter A

 Noah hates anything to do with writing. I usually stay away from tracing letters but we are trying it out.
I very slightly did hand over hand with him on the last letters with no highlight. He did a great job!

Happy Tuesday xoxo

some sunshine

yellow sunshine

We had a wonderful weekend. It was warm and sunny.  Saturday we went to have lunch in a cute little town in an old Mill and then hiked a little in the near by gorge. Noah was kind of scared and nervous so we didnt go for too long. But, we had a great time anyway.

Saturday night we went to my sisters for an outdoor party she was having with a live band. As soon as we got out of the car Noah was nervous with so many people and it was just too much for him so we left after about 45 min. So, we came home and watched a movie and had pop corn : ).

Sunday after Mass we had lunch at the Cheese Cake Factory at a neat little outdoor mall. We walked the mall and enjoyed the weather. Later we went to my sisters for dinner. And then the rain returned...sigh. I dont think I will get used to all of this rain?

Hope to post some photos of the weekend soon.

Happy Monday xoxo

found a heart


I found another heart shape rock on Mother's day. I was excited to find it. I just love finding them or some one finding one for me : )  The sun is out today and we plan a day out and about to enjoy it because the rain is coming right back again. I think it will never clear up here for good?

Happy Friday xoxo

counting marshmallows

 first he wanted to just stack each one right on top of the other. but he didn't get too far before they fell over.
then he tried a pyramid and it worked a little better. oh, how he is getting better at using those sweet little fingers. makes me so happy for him to be able to do the simple things that we can do so easy.
he thought this was a fun way to eat them after counting to ten

Happy Thursday xoxo

From Where I Stand

standing in St Helen's parking lot on Saturday night. taken with iPhone.

My Mom is going to stay another 5 weeks. I am happy about that. She left on Saturday morning to go spend a few days with my sister who lives about a half hour way. I miss her already and she will be back on Tuesday. I am so silly. But, I don't feel as home sick with her here and that is a good feeling.

I have so much to do. I need to get Noah's portfolio in order and find a teacher to sign off for the year and make a curriculum and apply for next school year to homeschool. I think we will continue homeschooling during the summer in our unschooling way? Taking time off when needed. I need to look into next years CCD classes for him also. And, I still need to unpack our things. Some days I wonder if I will ever finish the unpacking...lol

Happy Monday xo

still here


We are still around. Just been busy with my Mom still here. Have not had a chance to get on the computer since she has been visiting with us. We are having a good time, getting out and about everyday. We got lost yesterday trying to find a  place and we had a good time laughing about it. We finally found our way and made it back home safely. 
I am just so happy that we have warmer weather. I have worn flip flops the last two days and it is wonderful. I hope to get to the computer more often while Mom is here but if not I will be back soon. 
Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday xoxo

the photo was taken with my iPhone and I am newly addicted to instagram...sigh. let me know if you are on instagram so I can find you there :)
