I love homeschooling now, at first when I started homeschooling i felt it was just something that just had to be done, NOW it is something that we do all the time. You learn in everything you do. While math,reading,spelling,science,history,etc.. are all important I think every day life is so much more better a learning experience than anything. My kids can clean a whole house, fix a huge breakfast, start a fire in the fireplace, change diapers, calm a fussy baby, etc.. I never could of imagined doing that and I am sure they would not know how if they were still in public school. I am amazed and what they learn. Today we are doing math and then the older ones are mixing up finger paints for the younger ones to paint with. Then the older ones will go back to spelling after a brief period of finger painting with the younger ones. I dunno I am just coming to the realization that homeschool is not what I first thought of it, ever thing in life is a opportunity to learn. I am not so uptight about it now since I understand this!

First Midwife appt.

Everything went well. Got to see the little peanut. :) From my ultrasound she gave me a due date of October 6th. Baby's heart rate was 128 . So here we go, the start of another journey. I have not been feeling well at all. The midwife seemed to think it was something with my eyes but I just think this pregnancy is kicking my backside. I have dizzy spells, blurry vision, then comes the awful migraine. Please pray for me, it is hard for me to keep things going around here when I feel so horrible.
On a bright note my wonderful dh gave me 12 dozen roses and a huge balloon that says I love you for Valentine's Day. Best gift he could of given me. We were suppose to get to go off this weekend while my parents tended to the kids but the weather put a damper on that so we are shooting for the middle of March now. I cannot wait to get off with just dh and me for just a bit. don't get me wrong I love my kids but dh and I need that time together as well. Good thing the weather did keep us from going because the 3 littlest ones are not feeling well. Just the cold type of stuff.
Here is my menu plan
Monday 15th- Chicken Nuggets and some sort of potatoes and a veggie
Tuesday 16th-Lasagna , bisquits
Wendsday 17th-kids church
Thursday 18th-Roast with potatoes and carrots
Friday 19th- Hamburgers and Augratin Potatoes

I will not be eating alot of the potatoes and such , and sometimes I will be substituting for a salad with spinach in it. I am trying to maintain my weight this pregnancy since I am the biggest I have been starting off.
