If it was not illegal I would go down to the hardware store and buy a staple gun to staple my son to his chair! That's is the honest truth. He got up in the middle of a spelling lesson and sat his little tush down on the couch so he could play his PSP. Sometimes I wonder just what in the world I was thinking. And then we see how successful he is with homeschool and how far he's come. It just about makes it worth it.

We are wrapping up month 2 of homeschooling. I can hardly believe that we have been doing it this long. When we started I thought I knew it all. I thought all those people that talk about how the first couple months is about trial and error and figuring out need vs. want were below me. Well, I was an idiot. We have changed some of the curriculum a time or two. I've organized & re-organized trying to find the most efficient way to keep track of everything. I have even re-arranged our classroom/office because I didn't like the way it felt. I have added things to our day like practicing the guitar and studying his football playbook. There are subjects I thought I could teach without curriculum that I cant. Subjects I thought I needed curriculum for and I have given up and made my own. It's been an adventure. My sanity savers are.....

Ten years ago I brought a baby into this world and I was certain he was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. This is what everyone else saw.
|Do you remember that thermometer commercial with the baby and the caption that read "you want to put that where"? Tell me he doesn't look like that baby|
|But then he got those chubby little cheeks and he really was the cutest thing I ever saw.|
|Here he is at 2 driving the boat with Gma Irene.|
|And there's my cutie-tootie at 3.|
|He mastered the terrible twos at about 3 1/2.|
A couple weeks ago...
And finally here he is practicing his guitar on his 10th birthday!
Happy Birthday Hamster!!! I love you.
