We started out homeschool program this week. I like it so far :)
It's FIAR (five in a row) and the kids really like the stories. We're studying Japan. So, we also made noodles and watched Anthony Boudaines (sp?) travel channel episodes on Japan. Note to self: Anthony Boudaine has SOME things that aren't ENTIRELY appropriate for 8 yr olds ;)
But we really like watching those kind of shows. We REALLY love Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Michael could watch that every day, and I have to say it does kind of draw you in :)
The little boys both got hair cuts today, by me, in the kitchen sink :)
They look SO much better, especially Toma, his had gotten way too long and shaggy. Now he looks like a sweet little boy, a lot like he looked when we first met him.
Tomorrow I have to give my biggest boy, Shane, a hair cut too. It's funny that he's almost 19 and still asking me for hair cuts.( you see, he makes his OWN money now, so why spend it when MOM can do it for free?!)
I SO want to move to the country. I'm really tired of culd-de-sac life. Really.
If I had my way (dream) we'd move to a southern farm/ranch and we'd also travel back to 'my special country' to adopt another child or two.
Then, I'd be perfectly happy :)
