Weekend Update

Well, I think I'm finally on the road to recovery. After a nice weekend spent in bed with Harry (will I ever be finished with these dang books???), thanks to DH, I feel 100% better. Well, I'm still tired but more on that later.

We had a pretty educational weekend. Cassia impressed DH with her recital of The Four Vowels poem. We haven't actually done "u" yet, even though she knows the verse for it, so she asked DH for a prompt on the short-vowel sound of "u" - he had to ask me, lol. I'm assuming he did NOT learn phonics in school. That would explain why he is such a horrid speller, I'm guessing.

In other weekend news, Cameron learned how to play Monopoly on Sunday. What a wonderful game!! I just remember it being long and frustrating but when we played it it was really fun and soooo educational! (And I won! Ha!) So much math! And just the kind of math we've been working on. I am so thankful that he saw the Star Wars Monopoly game hiding up in the cupboard. I had forgotten all about it. DH had too. When he gets home this evening he promised to play a game with us. He's a brutal player though. He cheats. He cheats at Scrabble too, lol.

And finally... it appears that there is going to be another student joining the ranks of Shadowlight Academy. Probably sometime early April. Yikes. Four kids. I wanted to write something deep and profound about the meaning of family and the fullness of our lives and hearts and the misconceptions others tend to have when they see a large family... but I'm still in a bit of shock here, lol. We haven't even officially announced to the family and all yet (so if you are family and reading this, please keep it on the QT for a few more days!). I just thought you all should know... since you're my family too. And I need a ready excuse in case I start suddenly sounding insane. ;)

Okay, this may sound trite, and a bit crazy, but I knew it! I even told my dh I thought there was going to be a 4th baby. Congratulations, and wishing you a very happy and healthy pregnancy. If you need anything, let me know! BTW, you do know that next year, when you have the baby, I get to hold her/him.

Wow! I came to congratulate you for a complete different reason but this one totally trumps. Congrats on the upcoming newest family member. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy.

And oh yeah! You won the Blog Makeover contest. ;)

OMGosh!! Congratulations Jenny!

I know I'm crashing your blog, but I hadn't read it in a while and saw this :). Hope you're feeling well and glad your school year seems to be doing A-OK so far! Ours is plugging along, although I could use a spa week (ha! that'll be one I go to in dreamland, at least for now hehe).

((Hugs)) and 4 kids is pretty cool ;).
