Since my last post we have celebrated my birthday as well as Ryan's, Jeff's Kathy's, Ella-Kathryn's, and sent cards to Poppy for his bday. Yet none of this is here:( So here we go...
Ryan celebrated his 3rd birthday! He is such a funny boy, and loves to be funny. He makes great silly faces and is really getting into story telling, aka making stuff up:) We will have to really watch this part of his personality - don't want a compulsive liar on our hands! He loves music - singing, dancing, seems to just be a musical kid. Still is not great about going to sleep and/or staying in his bed at night, but really we've not done much to discourage his nightly visits to our room, so I can't complain. can't wait to see what this next year has for him!

Ok, so for some administrative stuff for my benefit:
Current curriculum - A World of Adventure - unit based curriculum, using for J and EK; MCP math; A Reason for Handwriting
Will - MCP math and Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons
So far so good - some days are super easy and others are really challenging! Jack and i still "battle" on a regular basis:( I am often left wondering if this is really what God wants for us:) Jeff assures me that it is. I know it is too, it's just that when it's hard, you just want to throw in the towel and farm them off to someone else. Refining experience this is...
I am beginning the study for the book Unlgued, by Lysa Terkeust. It deals with anger and how what we do with the anger in our lives.
Fun reading: finally got around to Jeffrey Eugenides - reading Middlesex; read The Marriage Plot (good, great literary ref, not just the title, and overall good read)
Also reading Grace Based Parenting, Kimmel; Stepping Heavenward, Prentiss;
