Thankful Homeschooling Days.

When your in the midst of homeschooling your little ones, I know you all have those days. You know the ones I am talking about. 

Those where it seems like you didn't get up and get started early enough.

The ones where it seems like no matter how hard you try nothing seems, to be getting done.

Everything is unorganized and if you try to organize you lose their attention even more.

Well we did actually get school done, but at the time it sure didn't see like it.

Even though at times there are days like that. I wouldn't change it for anything. Aren't there days like that with everything?
I am so thankful to be homeschooling my children. I love it and I will gladly take the bad days with the good. The days that I get to spend watching them learn to read. Training them in the ways of the Lord and how to be a joyful keeper at home, whatever journey, God calls them to.

My 1st Kroger Couponing Trip

Well this is what I got on my 1st Kroger Trip. I don't think it was as much the coupons on this one as it was Kroger's really awesome sale they are having this week. Although I did use a few coupons and did two seperate transactions. My total was about 35.00 and actually there are a few things missing. We had already eaten a yogurt and bananna by the time I took the picture. Add it up and tell me what you think.
Did I get a good deal for a beginner?

Saving

Well I've decided to give couponing a try. I don't mean saving a few and using them when I find one on something we use. I mean serious couponing. Well maybe not to serious but I'm enjoying it so far. It does take a lot of time. I'm off to Kroger and CVS today to try and see if  I can save my family money on our grocery bill. I will let you know how it goes. saving

Baby Girl or Boy

We all gathered in the room for the sonogram.  The nurse ask us all  what we thought and what we were hoping for.
It doen't matter to us, we are praying for a healthy baby, weather it's a boy or girl.
Me- I think Boy just because everything has been so different, for example I wasn't as sick with the girls.
Hubby- Thinking Girl, - Now you know he wants a boy, hes out-numbered.
Girls- Thinking  boy but hoping for girl.
Nana- Boy, and hoping she's right.

Well my hubby will remain out-numbered and I have two very excited girls. Since they are getting what they hoped for. A baby sister.
