ashtyn's new look

Check out Ashtyn's new look. I am so proud of her. She cut off 12 inches of her hair to donate to Locks of Love. If you are not familiar with Locks of Love it is a non-profit Organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

I am so looking forward to our new school year. we will be homeschooling this year. i just about have everything that i need, or think i need. the kids are getting excited and are actually ready to start now! can you believe that? I have already started with the boys they are learning to read. They are doing super! Of course it is so easy for Josiah, I knew it would be since he has had 2 years of pre k, but i have been pleasantly surprised at how quickly Isaiah is picking it up. I have to admit, teaching the boys to read was the most intimidating part for me, when considering homeschooling. if it all goes this well then we are in for a great year! I'll keep you posted on my journey!

This is the book I am using to teach the boys. It makes it easy for them and for me!
