Just another day!!

Well today was just another day in the life of the Foster family. Hannah earned another star on her math chart. She is getting better at her addition each day. I think we are going to start focusing more on subtraction next week. She doesn't like subtraction very well. She is learning more and more words too. We started a new word list and she earns stars for each word she can read and spell without looking. She earned 4 today! I am proud of her! Madison is doing good at counting also. She counted to 10 with me several times. She is a reluctant learner, we have to kinda trick her into learning. :) Hannah also is working on learning a new bible verse. I tried to get her to sing it and learn it, but I was unsuccessful, so we will work on that again tomorrow. I have learned that some things are better to take slow. :) Well this has been our day of homeschool, we will see what tomorrow holds. Goodnight.

Well here I am on saturday night! Up late again getting everything ready for church in the morning. Not a lot happened today, the girls wanted to make something so I let them make leaf pictures. They had collected quite a few leaves and had them in a bag in the house, so they glued them to paper and drew around the leaves with markers. :) Made them happy, and I got just a few minutes of peace. lol Well I need to get to bed so I can rise and shine early in the morning and get everyone ready for sunday school. Goodnight

My First Blog

Well here I am posting my first post to my first blog page. :) Today is the day after thanksgiving 2007 and I am so thankful for what God has given me. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls who love me. I have a great family of brothers and a sister that all are so special to me. I have a wonderful church family that I love so much. I just am so thankful for all the great blessings God has given to me. Oh, yeah there are days when things don't go quite as planned and we have bad days just like everyone else, but overall God has been way to good to me for me to complain. He woke me up this morning and started me on my way, so I am thankful for that. On this blog it is my plan to tell about my family and our days of homeschooling. I would love to be able to follow in some of the footsteps of bloggers I have seen that share ideas that have inspired me in homeschooling. I love teaching in a creative fashion and I would love to be able to inspire others also. I know everyone who homeschools doesn't do it for all the same reasons, but we can all join together and share the neat ideas all stirring in our heads. I just would like to help get you mind stirring with great ideas. Well I feel that I have blogged enough for this post so I will close. I will be back soon with more updates and some pictures too. Take care and have wonderful and thankful day! God Bless You
