Busy Busy!

Things have been busy, but good!  Sorry it's been so long without an update.  I just can't seem to get a few minutes to update the blog lately.

The kids are great!  Growing so much.  Noah is crawling now.  He leaps like a frog.  :)  And he's working on some teeth.  Hannah has a great imagination and is always talking to her imaginary friends and playing with them.

The garden is doing awesome- I hope to do a separate post on that soon.  I have some great pictures to share!  So far we have dug up some onions, picked 4 zucchini, 5 cucumbers, had lots of lettuce and munched on a few green beans.  Things are doing very well. 

Noah being cute at breakfast.

Noah playing with Hannah's new hula hoop.

Both kids in the hoop!

Hannah made sugar cookies for the 4th of July.  She had a lot of fun!!

The mark of a true baker- flour on the face! :)

Getting some of his toys on his own.

Hannah's newest learning tool, an alphbet and number poster that I made.  Hannah can match up all the numbers and the smileys (I don't think she knows the numbers, she just matches them by their shape.)  But I'm still impressed.  I just finished making this and Hannah was all over it (literally) sitting on it and matching things up.  She even pointed out the letter H and said that's an 'H.'  Yay for Hannah!

I'm sure there will be more posts about this in the future, but one of our passions/desires is to homeschool our children.  I have done a few preschool-type activities with Hannah here and there.  My plan is to get my thoughts and goals together by summer's end and start her official preschool in the fall, just like a typical preschool.  I have a curriculum that I'm going to try to incorporate into my plan, but I'm not sure if I'll use that alone or come up with my own lesson plan for the year.  Hannah's pretty excited about it and loves when we have 'school time.'  We have created a bulletin board for her to display her projects on and she loves to look at them.  Someday I hope to have a separate room or space that will be dedicated soley to school, but right now it's just not possible.  So our living room will have to do for now.

I guess that's about it for this post.  I hope to share more pictures and thoughts soon.  Thanks for reading!  Leave a comment so we know you were here.  :)
