Hello Busy Life!

Wow, you guys! It has been pretty much pure insanity over at my house for the last few months. I’m going to give you a little recap and share some fun photos of what has been happening and catch you up!

First up we had Advanced Green Belt testing for my oldest son.

My daughter is on a Tiny Team at Gymnastics and she bumped up to Level 1…and soon Level 2 next month which means she gets to compete (I swear I need to clone myself).

This mama got a perfect score and was awarded an Excellence Award for Research Writing from my college Western Governors University-love that school, for a paper I wrote titled: Gifted Education: The Leisurely Evolution. As a side note, I wish they would have written that instead of “Task 1”. Oh well, I’ll have to write them a suggestion ticket, lol.

My award. #proudmoment

I have been applying for graduate school…MFA in Creative Writing! I have been busting my tail getting all of my admissions papers in, personal essays in, critical essays, AND a creative manuscript…into their hot little hands so I can see if I am already good enough to get into an writing program to make me better. Craziness.

Homeschool has happened..mostly. My oldest is taking the full amount of credits he can at the co-op program by our house and he is loving it. He is excited about going because he chooses what he takes and when. That leaves him time for all the in depth math and science he wants to do. It’s a win for everyone. My daughter is still doing her preschool co-op class once a week, which I teach in every other month. My tot…he just comes along for the ride!

Messing with the numbers...do you see which ones were switched? :D

Let’s see….I have been making and selling my latest fun craft project: Waldorf Hand Kites. They are made of natural, unfinished birch and pretty double sided satin ribbon…all USA made materials. And they are gorgeous (if I do say so myself!). I will be selling them on etsy very soon along with another blogging mama over at EcoFriendlyMamaUSA.com!

And lastly, we have been enjoying some amazing family time together. We have been trying to especially get outside when the rare peeks of sun happen, which is happening more and more now that we have hit mid-March! Blossom trees are in full bloom around here <3

Gorgeous blossom trees!!

Bye for now!
