Isn't Little Guy getting good with the camera!?
Tiger and Cutie did very well on their timed math test today!
The whole gang.

Here is Little Guy working hard on some coloring. He finished his work early, but he didn't want to leave the school room!

Maybe it is because I am a teacher...or maybe because I feel so organized...but I really feel ready for Tuesday...our first day of "home school." The curriculum has all finally arrived. My yearly plans are complete. All weekly lessons plans are done. The room is ready...the kids are excited. My desk is finally complete! I don't think I have forgotten anything. WAIT! I don't know who is going to clean my house next week! Ha!

What do you do when it it too hot to go outside? My kids and their friends like to slide down the stairs in a sleeping bag! I was thinking my poor kids have been a little neglected while I was getting things ready for school! NOT! They have been enjoying trying to figure out how to entertain themselves!
I just love watching him!

We have been very busy ever since we found out our beloved school SACA had to close. (sorry for the lack of posts...it has been a little crazy around here.) Hubby and I tossed around the idea of putting our children into another private school, but none in the area can compare to the education our children received at SACA! (Not to mention how much I loved teaching at the school my children were attending!) We also wanted our children to continue being classically trained. So, we decided the best thing to do was home school our children.
Thankfully, we have some friends who also wanted to have their children home schooled...and asked if I would teach their children right along with my own. My kids are thrilled to have one student each in their "class." (except Little Guy...he is our only Kindergartner!)

There is nothing more "summer" than dinner on the beach! We love going and watching the sunset. The kids played in the ocean, ate dinner, and then went to the shake shack with the dads! It was a perfect evening!

Hubby and I decided to get rid of cable. It has been one of the best things we ever did. We have been talking about it for moths, but neither one of us took the initiative to do it. So, while hubby was in Nevada, I took back our cable boxes. (I called him to get his approval).
Wow, how much more family time we have had now! The kids and I have made more trips to the library, pool and beach. We are reading together more, playing more board games, and hanging outside meeting our neighbors! It has been fabulous! Here are some pictures of the kids playing monkey in the middle with hubby. I am sure we would have been in front of the TV this night if it would have been available...how wonderful to have made this memory instead!

I am always so amazed at my hubby's patience with the boys. They asked him to hang a dry erase board in their room a few weeks ago. He took this time to teach them a little more about a drill and a hammer. Tiger wasn't as into as Little Guy, probably because he already knows how to use all those tools! Little Guy was in heaven. Tiger ended up teaching Little Guy right alongside Hubby.

I love reading to my little ones! Little Guy wanted me to read Green Eggs and Ham. I think I enjoy those Dr. Seuss books more than the kids! Anyway, after reading it to him I asked if he would like to try green eggs for breakfast. He said, "YES!" He was so cute! He had eaten green eggs before at school, but he didn't get to "make" them. So, he begged to "make" them with me. I promised he would be able to help prepare them in the am. So here are some pics of our green eggs!
