This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

School days

Yes, this is a bit late.  
On Monday we are starting our 3rd week of school.  
Life is just much busier in the Fall.

Virginia started Pre-School.
She has the same teacher Liv and George had. 
This teacher is so wonderful, we just keep bringing her our 3 year olds!
Virginia is known for her head strong, passionate ways, but I'm expecting Mrs. S to preform a miracle!  (I hope she is reading this! ha ha!)
 V showing off her back pack.
It happens to be the same one Liv and George used, 
since we only send one kid to school at a time!
 The normal stance.
Feet turned in like the rest of us Stouffers, 
and fingers in her mouth (not like the rest of the Stouffers! EW!)
 Sneaky face?  Hmmmm.
Praying for Mrs. S!
 Not sure what was up with the boy. 
We got these pictures 30 seconds before the sky opened up and poured.
 Ginnie was a little hesitant walking into class, 
but she found her project and started before Mrs. S could even show her what to do.  
 And there she was.  
In school.
I barely got a kiss good bye!
 The big kids, the baby and I went home to start our 3 hours of quiet school.
Maggie played in the freedom of "no Ginnie bothering her" until her morning nap.
George started on an Alphabet order and sound project while I introduced Liv to her new curriculum.
 I love that we do history and science together.
Most of their work is separate, and that is hard for me to juggle.
George can't read yet, so I need to explain all the instructions.
Liv is not very enthusiastic about work, so I need to encourage her a lot.
It is a lot more than the last couple years, but we are finding our groove.
Three hours goes by fast!  
Ginnie does not talk when I pick her up,
the same way Liv and George were.
I don't get it.
I'm stating this now, for the record:
She is up to something!  I just know it!

  1. Love the CLS memories. :) And of course I'm fascinated by home schooling. I love seeing it at work!
