Jeremy and I made a decision awhile ago that we would be homeschooling Analyce. this is a big decision and one that will take a lot of devotion and dedication. i know that i have made the right decision for my family at this time. i don't know if i will be homeschooling my kids all the way thru high school but i do know i will be doing it for the first year at least. people who know we are gonna be homeschooling have mixed feelings but the majority is against it. i have no problem being the different one i went through all of those comments about how we were crazy when people found out i was having a home birth, and i still did it. i know the decisions i have made are the right ones for me and Analyce. i am so super excited to start her school and she can't wait. one of the joys of homeschooling is you can pick when to start and stop! our school year will begin in September and Analyce is counting down the days. i have always wanted to be a teacher and i get to be the teacher to the best student baby girl! Wish us luck on our new adventure!


Me and Jeremy had the opportunity to go to Hawaii for 10 days and let me just tell you it was a BLAST!! we left the kids with their aunt Celesta and we left on a jet plane. i was a little nervous leaving my babies for 10 whole days but it was totally worth it! i have a lot to post about our little trip and i will be doing that later. i just wanted to put a little bit in here so it will remind me to get busy on my vacation journal!

The big 3!!

This is a late post but better late then never right.....I still can't believe that my little baby boy turned the big 3 on July 10! It is a bitter sweet moment, of course i want my kids to grow up and enjoy the joys of life, but i secretly want them to stay little forever. i can't believe how fast they grow i just wish they would slow down a bit. it seems like yesterday i was giving birth to my sweet Jaren boy. oh how i miss him needing me for everything and when he would wrap his little fingers around mine i would feel like the most important person in the world to him. now he is all grown up and he stills needs me but it usually involves some temper tantrums ok a lot of them. we were all surprised when he all of a sudden wanted to be potty trained and didn't need much help in the matter. he finally became a really big boy wearing big boy undies in May 2011 and has been perfect ever since. he is such a boy these days well when it comes to what he talks about, all he ever talks about is poop, toots, and poopy diapers. he still loves all the girly stuff just like his sisters but how could we blame him the princess shoes look so much prettier then the cars and stuff. i'm sure that when he starts to hang out with more boys he will get over those pretty shoes real quick! Jaren has a new love and that is playing Super Mario Bros. with his dad. he waits all day long for daddy to get off work so he can play, and Jaren isn't half bad! Jaren loves being the big brother to Makayla and they get along so well, always giving hugs to each other. we don't know what we would do with our sweet little stud in the family, we love him to pieces. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CUTE BOY!
