Homeschool

It’s been a long time since I posted something. Life kinda flew by fast and crazy the last few months. I hope to write about Thanksgiving and Christmas sometime in the near future. But for now, I’m going to super speed ahead to now. Everybody all around the world are dealing with this virus. It…

Music and Blades

We were invited to go see a youth orchestra at Powell Hall. A English Language Teacher from Kira’s school district was gracious enough to purchase us tickets. We walked around during intermission and looked at all the chandeliers. Kira wasn’t too into the music. Although she did enjoy hearing me describe what she should be…

Let’s Read

Kira’s Grandma Kondracki bought a book to teach Kira how to read. It’s quite impressive to hear what she already knows. I had no idea that she is able to read small words. Despite her begging to continue watching tv, they made her take a break and practice reading. I know we’ve been MIA for…

Trunk or Treat

A couple weeks ago, Kira picked out her costume. She sorted through many different outfits. She found a kitty costume, and then there it was. She came running to me carrying a package of vampire fangs. She grabbed two pairs and told me that I too will be a vampire. I helped her pick out…

R to the M. M to the S. RMS!

Upon entering school, Kira was invited to join cheerleading. I’m not new to cheer. Many of our exchange students were cheerleaders in high-school. I was excited to have another cheerleader and be a cheer mom again. Kira was on board. Cheer camp was every day after school for about a week. She started out as…

Why?

First of all, I’m sorry we haven’t been very active on here. Life has been crazy busy. It’s been a full on stress overload for us all. I definitely wasn’t in the right state of mind to write anything. Then throw packing our house into the mix. Our home looks like a bomb went off,…

Kira’s Adoption Shower

We really enjoyed meeting some of our readers. We loved talking to everyone. My Mom, Stepdad and friends worked really hard to decorate and prepare food for the shower. My friend from college surprised me and drove three hours to attend our shower. I had family and other friends of the family attend the shower….

Zero

I’ve mentioned before that Kira has been struggling some in school. In Disappearing Act , we shared that a behavioral meeting was going to happen soon. That meeting was about three weeks ago. We, the principals, and almost all her teachers met and agreed on trying a behavioral chart. This chart has four objectives. Arrives…

Add a Little Bit of This and That

Last Sunday, we were invited over to Uncle Brian and Aunt Ashleigh’s house for swimming. Or actually for Kira to swim and everyone else to watch the Baseball game. After Kira was done swimming, her and Ashleigh baked cookies together. Kira insisted on adding extra flour, extra vanilla, and extra sugar. They popped them into…

The Easy Path

Just recently Kevin shared something that God has put on his heart for our future. My reaction wasn’t too nice. This vision would require more responsibility. I didn’t want more responsibility. I tossed these feelings onto the back burner. This past Wednesday, I attended Sarah’s Bible study. She is a sweet lady who has a…
