Proverbs 22:6

"Train a child up in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it."

That's what we intend to do.

God laid it on my heart to homeschool my children.

I said yes.

Logan Update

My precious Logan is getting big so fast. He amazes me everyday with his tender heart, and warm spirit. He's sooooo loving and giving that it just melts me. He's going to be such a great husband and father.

Logan has really blossomed in TPK (Therapeutic Pre Kindergaten). His teachers and therapists dote on him, and say he's on target to graduate in time for kindergarten. He's already mastered one goal... maybe more! We'll find out how he did last semester soon. He's reading site words, writing all his letters and even doing math. I'm so proud of him!

I still get stuck in the "why me"s from time to time, but I remember what an incredible journey, and blessing this has been. Don't get me wrong, I still get waves of brokeness from time to time- but they've gotten few and far between. I'm really working hard on enjoying the moment, because life is short, and they're only little once... and it's for such a short time.

We just signed Logan up for piano lessons (his first lesson is tomorrow!) and he's really excited about it! He loves music so much, and my hubby has been working with him now and then, but we decided it's time for him to have a professional teacher. I'm excited, but a little nervous. Logan does have OCD, so if something is not "just right" aka exactly what he's expecting, then he could have an episode- but I'm praying everything will be smooth sailing and he enjoys learning about music. My hubby and I both love music- my DJ is so talented, if you could just hear the music he composes he'd amaze you too- so I pray that Logan takes to it.

I also have some exciting news to share... but that deserves it's own post.

Lily Update

My sweet little Lily has been getting bigger by the minute, sometimes I just can't keep up! She's learning new words everyday, and putting together two and three word sentences. She's even telling up when she has pooped or peed... I can feel our potty training days getting closer and closer. The other day, I took her to Babies-R-Us to pick out ANY potty she wanted. Can you guess what she picked?? ELMO of course!! She LOVES Elmo. She thinks DJ's laptop is an "Elmo machine" because of the countless times the two of them have watched it on YouTube.

My Lily has just been a light in our family. She's bright and cheerful (except when she's not), she has real passion and is the best little Mommy. She dotes on her dolls, giving them milk (a fake bottle) and wrapping them up for bed. Her new favorite game is to play "Night Night", forcing any willing adult to lay on the ground while she gives you "milk", a baby, covers you with a blanket, gives you a kiss, and bends over you with her pointer finger over her month proclaiming "shhhh shhhh".

Her hair is getting longer and thicker every day! She is, however, still sporting the rockin mullet. I've been trying since day one to put bows in her hair- but she just wont keep them in!! But, the other day, she had me put every bow she could find in her hair. I'm all about self expression, so I put 'em all in with a big smile on my face.

Lately, Lily has started throwing tantrums when she doesn't get her way. I'm hoping this is a quick stage- but like I said, she's got passion ;)
