New school year begins

I have to upload my photos (bad mommy) of Drew's first day last week. :) It's confusing for him becuase we're calling this his "kindergarten" where, in reality, he's going to skip kindergarten all together. He will leave his current school and go to a D-1 course (Developmental First) so this IS kind of like his K level courses. :) I know he'll do fine. The kid is bright!

Josh started classes yesterday. We're using an eclectic approach to school this year and have a combined curriculum from many places. In a way it's a headache but I feel that the areas that I differed from each curriculum, I'm giving him the best of what they all have to offer.

Seventeen days and we leave for the mouse house! WOO HOO

I didn't post my Menu Plan Monday BUT I will post what I'm making tonight! :) Im making a new recipe that I threw together! Ha! I got chicken breasts and cut them into tenders and covered both sides with about 3/4 of a package of mild taco seasoning. Then, I covered all of the strips with a jar of medium pace picaunte sauce (yum!) I just put foil on it and put it in the oven. I will serve it over a bed of Spanish rice mixed with a little corn and black beans that have had pico de gallo stirred in (another, YUM). I also just threw together some Mexican cornbread. I say "threw together" because, I have no idea how to make this stuff! I just wanted some. Call it a craving. :) LOL... I used a couple of boxes of jiffy corn mix, a couple eggs, 2/3 cup milk, some canned green chilis, some canned corn (don't have cream corn which is what you typically use), and some sugar. I guess we'll see how it turns out. LOL... But hey, even if it's bad... I bet it's still good...cornbread and green chilis... you can't go wrong there! :)

Mary, how's Vegas? Christa, you gonna come see me in Disney? Felecia, how ya feeling?

TIRED, DARNIT!!! lol...

How are you feeling???

Is homeschooling energizing or confusing or what???

On of my other friends says that detailed lesson plans were a MUST for her otherwise she wouldn't know which end was up...I'm still considering this whole process...of course I'd have to find a way to earn money while at home...sigh...:-0
