In a homeschooling house full of 7 kids & 3 guniea pigs....there is never a dull moment! 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!

Good to be back on track!
Whew....for the past 3 months, we have been living in complete disarray! We no longer started school and we were packing for our vacation. When we returned from our vacation, it was time to switch out fall/winter clothes...then there was catching up on all that school work, more clothes, doctor appointments, surgeries.....and well, yes...we are just now back on track around here! Most people don't understand why it would take so long to get life back in order, but then again, most people aren't large homeschooling families! We are especially busy this time of year, so it's such an awesome feeling to be back in a routine!
Last Friday, we met with our small homeschooling group and made Greeting Cards that we donated to be sent with care packages for soldiers for Christmas.
Each month we participate in events with our deaf community. Unfortunately, this year we have not been able to attend most of the events (due to illness or schedule conflicts). On Saturday, we were able to celebrate Christmas with this wonderful community of people! The young members of our flock especially enjoyed visiting with the signing Santa!
On Sunday, we were suppossed to meet with a few of our close friends and visit a Christmas Lights Display, but the weather didn't cooperate and we had to postpone our outing. It was a good thing because Hawk came down with a sore throat and a terrible headache. We took advantage of the unexpected time at home and got all the cleaning done that we could.
