A lot of people show genuine concern for us and want to know how we are doing, as the road we've left behind was not a pleasant one. So, here I am, to tell some of our stories...share some of our days...and open up a part of our world to you! Come join us on our journey so you won't miss the moments that take our breath away!

Not Back to School Bloghop!
I am a little late jumping into the Day-in-the-life series linked to the Not Back to School Blog Hop, but hey...better late than never right?
I don't think there is a "typical" day in our house. With 6 kids...a lot of "life" happens around here. Our house is a very hectic one, anyone who follows my blog knows this for sure. Usually, we are rushing off to hospital and/or doctors appointments or something else comes up. Our new school year has slowly begun. Our goal was to start weeks ago, but...as always...that "life" sometimes gets in the way.
In the last month or so, Cardinal, Macaw and I have all had a surgery and Duckling was admitted in the hospital for a day of testing. Once that was all behind us, we were busy planning an upcoming trip.
We had decided to "officially" start our year this past Monday...but, guess what! Yep, that darn "life" once again. You see, we went out of town to take our van to our mechanic on Sunday. Since things don't always go as planned, when we were on our way home, our engine light came on...yes, as we left the mechanic. So, back to the mechanic our van went and we went back to my parents to spend another night.
So, this week...we have had those "life lessons". The ones where you learn that life isn't perfect and things do not always go as you plan. As homeschoolers, we take every opportunity to learn and every opportunity to have fun. So, on Monday, Cardinal and Hawk enjoyed a day at the waterpark with some friends. Monday night, Hawk and Eagle enjoyed learning about stars, planets, storms and weather. Falcon and I worked all morning on our September preschool lesson plans and tonight, we are back home! We have finished dinner, made a dozen Uncrustables and now it is time to get the little ones in bed! Cardinal is working hard on a Composition lesson. I'm so proud of her independence and her drive to learn.
Tomorrow...we WILL be back in the swing of things...Mother Goose will drag herself out of bed very early and the flock will be soon to follow! Of course...we will be calling the Dr. in the morning as it should be no surprise that someone in our house needs to be seen for something. I look forward to sharing our day with you tomorrow.
