Time Flies

Hello blogging world...you may (or may not) have noticed my total desertion of this page for the last month (and a half). To be honest, nothing major really happened to drive me away. I just needed a break. I needed to focus on my family and myself. 

Here's a (hopefully) quick breakdown to catch you up...

We cracked down on homeschooling and have officially decided to go with Classical Conversations next year and are super excited about it. 

We had a snow-pocalypse that was a ton of fun...

I got a new .22 rifle for Valentine's Day and we took some good friends shooting... (the boy and one of his best friends had a blast)

I escaped. I took a long weekend and flew down to El Paso (thereby leaving the children alone with Joshua for the first time ever!) to visit this awesome lady...

(cell phone pic...eh, sorry)

Joshua and I had a weekend away...hotel, theater tickets (Cathy Rigby's Peter Pan-I highly recommend seeing it!-that woman is in better shape at 60 than I am today!), dinner out...the basics

In related news, the boy also got to see Peter Pan as his first broadway show with his Grandma. He LOVED it!...he wasn't so much a fan of the pics I insisted we take before he left but I couldn't resist. I love my bow-tie-lovin', suspender-wearing little man!

Also, I've been on a sewing kick...big time. I made a couple new dresses for the girl...
(she was less than thrilled to do pics at that particular moment)
(I got the hat from Halo Heaven)

And finally, the biggest news (for me at least) was that I finally got my much coveted Brother PE-770 Embroidery Machine!!! I'm in love! This was the first thing I made...

So that's what we've been up to...kind of a crazy busy season for us but a good one.

I've been thinking about homeschooling because of all of the trouble we've been having and my friend told me about Classical Conversations just yesterday! I'm going to check it out next Tuesday. From what she's told me about it, I think I will like it.

I've always toyed with the idea, but never felt like I'd be good at it, or that I could handle it. I have a few months before I'd need to decide so I can at least try it out before I have to commit :o) Maybe your post was a sign, lol.

Love the dresses. I've been on an sewing kick too. Gotta get Eliza's summer wardrobe ready ;o)

I had a great time with you, too! :) And I am in love with those bow tie pics!

Love the pics! I was wondering from your Pinterest postings if you had gotten a machine! Congrats! Now you can up the cuteness factor on your family to the max! :)
