The First Day

Today I decided to start school with Bekah and Chris.
It took them and Hour and a half to do hand writing....a lot longer then what I would have liked.
They are now working on cursive... Chris is just learning and Bekah is reviewing.

Next we are going to try our new Science ... I am excited about this one... I did it with Sona and Now I get to do it all over again with these two.....

School is always a fun thing to start... it takes tweaking but all in all it will run well as soon as we get in full gear.

Were is it?

I have a creative mind but no room to splurge.... that is how i feel!

When money is always the issue it is a hard to think creatively .

Now I am usually the queen of frivolously finding ideas ... you know the the one who will make something out of rubber bands and tissue.... but NOTHING is coming to my mind .

Grrrrrr... I just thought I would share.... If I think of some thing I will tell the mean time I will do the normal stuff that I do every morning.... boy I sound like I am complaining... sorry.
