Our first week back to homeschooling was successful! This year we've decided to go with a curriculum instead of unschooling. I think the older girls need the structure. They seem to do much better when they know what is expected of them. We gave unschooling a shot last year, however, our girls seem to like their printed out charts of assignments, earning stickers, and overall having a schedule, of sorts. 

For Big Mak and Mess I'm using a curriculum called My Fathers World. We'll be doing their Exploring Countries and Cultures this school year. I actually bought the curriculum in early April and planned on beginning our school year then, but that didn't exactly work out. We did start and complete weeks 1 and 2 before I was out of commission and our schedules became incredibly busy. So, this week was really just a review week for them and next week will be too. 

Little Love is doing a Letter of the Week PreK curriculum.

So, it's been a few months since I updated. Yeah, I'm an awesome blogger. I'll start with the Whole 30. I didn't finish the full 30 days. I made it to day 20 and couldn't continue. I couldn't continue because I was having the worst morning sickness I could have ever imagined. I could barely eat or drink anything much less even think about eating a piece of meat or a vegetable.

As most of you know we are expecting Baby #4.
