School has started!

We started school on Monday. My intention was to begin last week, but I just couldn't get my act together. We have finished our third day and it has gone quite smoothly.
We are using the A Beka curriculum again this year. I had thought about and researched other curriculums but when it came down to buying, I bought A Beka again. I know there are cheaper books out there, but it turns out I am an A Beka snob. I love the way they teach reading. Their math cannot be beat in elementary grades, I just love it and the kdis don't know anything different so they love it too.
I know people worry about me having "me time" with the kids home 24/7 year-round. Today I went and got my eyebrows waxed and my hair cut and colored-by myself. I had a little "me time" and it was nice. And even better than that is that I get to leave Friday and go see Abby and the new house by myself! I can hardly wait to see it and to tell ya'll all about it!

You're a great mom and I respect you for homeschooling....I don't know how you do it, I think I would go insane :) Hope you have a great time with Abby this weekend. I'm sure she will put you to doing lots of work!
