My computer has a virus:(

I had great posts for the week but my computer got a virus. It would not let me log on the internet at all. Right now it is in the process of getting fixed. Hopefully I will get it back Wednesday and I will do a super long post on all our exciting happenings this week. Right now I am using my husband's laptop and can not get it to load pictures:( I will be back Thursday.

Haley's Glasses!!

My sweet 5 year old has to wear glasses. She has a lazy eye(it is not that noticeable), and if it is not better in 3 months she will have to wear a patch over the "good" eye to strengthen the weak one. I had no idea she needed glasses, she seemed like she could see fine. In September 2008 I took all 3 of them because Hannah was complaining of headaches. She just needed reading glasses. Bryson's eyes were fine. They said Haley needed them then, but I wanted to get a second opinion, because she seemed fine. Now I feel really bad because we didn't go sooner. She wore her other ones, but they got broke when we were moving, so she has gone 4 months without them. Oh well you live in learn.

Saint Patrick's Day!!

Today we celebrated Saint Patrick's Day.
We celebrated this morning with Irish Oatmeal(Please excuse the pictures, I have misplaced my camera and these are from my phone).

For lunch we had baked chicken with "green spices"(basil, parsley, etc.), broccoli, and green beans.

For dessert we had "green" cupcakes!!!

We also learned some interesting facts about Saint Patrick's Day and the Shamrock. Patrick was not born in Ireland but went there after God called him to go. He used the Shamrock to explain the Trinity. We colored some shamrocks and wrote short stories on what we learned:)

It has been an interesting year. We have had a lot of struggles. From sickness(H1n1 flu) to moving and we have not been on a good schedule. It will probably not be until June or July before we finish school. With that said, Hannah is doing well we use all Abeka 5th grade for her. I do not use the teacher curriculum, I just have the teacher edition for math and language, plus the test teacher keys. For Haley we are using the teacher on Dvd through Abeka(Which has been wonderful, because I also babysit a 3 year old and 1 year old, so it really helps). For Bryson we tried to use Abeka, but I felt like he has not catching on as quickly, so I have basically started over with him to fill in the holes. We are using Phonic Pathways to help with his reading. He reads pretty well but I just want to make sure he really gets it. For Math we are using Alpha Omega Horizons for 1st grade. For Reading we are using the Abeka Readers and we are also continuing using Abeka for Language.
We had already finished Abeka Science and History so we are now using Bob Jones( I got them at Cedar Springs Christian Bookstore, they sale used curriculum). They are older versions but we are really enjoying them. That is basically everything. Soon I am going to do a post on Gardening. We are having our first garden this year and can't wait to start our series on Gardening(after Easter). I hope everyone has a blessed day!!!

It has been a month!!!

Wow it is hard to believe it has been a month since I last blogged. I have just been so busy. I always visit other people's blogs but I seem to forgot about my own. I have got to do better. So much has gone on, I don't even know where to begin. First off my sweet little boy had his 7th birthday on March 11. I can't believe it. This past weekend my husband and I went on a youth trip with our church. (If you checkout the website you will see our Christmas service is on there and Hannah has a solo.) We have been doing a lot of school and I am going to post on that soon. Here are a few pictures from the last few months.
