The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - August 20, 2016


Join me and Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers as we recap our week.

Hey y'all! How was your week? My week was busy and full of craziness. I started this week off by scheduling dental and optomistrist appointments for the kids, a well child check for Mr. Mister, and an appointment with a new OB/GYN.  I also managed to get eight pounds of hamburger cooked up, bagged, and frozen.  This was no small task considering the smell of raw hamburger is yucky to my pregnant nose.  

I was able to get in to see my new OB this week and I got to see the baby kicking and moving around via ultrasound.  I really like my new OB, Dr. S.  She really makes me feel comfortable and safe.  

We ended our week with some news about some big upcoming choices that we have to make.  We are trying to walk by faith in this situation, but would love your prayers  Now on to our homeschool week.


Bee did well this week.  She really stayed focus and was able to move smoothly through her school work.


Bug had some problems staying on track this week and struggled to finish her work in a timely manner.


Mr. Mister has struggled with not distracting his sisters while they are trying to do school work.  The upside is he has done a great job with potty training this week.


Well, that was our week.  Thank you for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment.  I love hearing from y'all.

Until next time,

Week 11 Pregnancy Update - August 14, 2016


Hey y'all. We are officially 11 weeks pregnant.  There are only a couple of weeks left in the first trimester!

I am considered high risk due to several factors, including advanced maternal age, high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia in previous pregnancy, gestational diabetes in previous pregnancy, and concern with the possibility of shortening cervix.  This means I will be watched more closely then the average pregnancy. I have already been seen twice.  I have an appointment in two weeks for another ultrasound to check cervical length again,  I will also have to go in again two weeks after that to do a glucose test. 

I was a little thrown off when I called to make my first appointment and was told the OB who delivered Bug and Mr. Mister no longer does deliveries.  After discussing it with Mr. Daddy we have decided to look for an OB closer to us.  It has been a long and difficult processes, but hopefully we have found an option.  I'll have to let you know next week.

Well, that's the update for the week.  Please pray for our family and the baby.


Until next time,

Hey y'all! How was your week? My week was SUPER excitiing. It is with great pleasure that we share, we are expecting #4!  We will be 11 weeks on Sunday, the 14th.  We decided to wait to tell people until after our first ultrasound.  On Thursday we got to see our newest little one.
This pregnancy is so much different from every other one.  I have been so nausous. Combine that with my "advanced maternal age" we were a little worried that we were carrying twins.  Mr. Daddy and I breathed a sigh of relief when the technician said there was only one.  Now on to our homeschool week.


Bee had a good week for the most part.
She has struggled with staying on track and not taking forever with her math.  It can be so frustrating since she understands what she's suppose to do, but finds it, "too boring" to do it quickly.


Bug got to read a couple more very short sentences this week.
She is so proud of herself, but wants to learn faster.  I think we have another lover of reading.


Mr. Mister did better this week with potty training, but not as good in sitting during "school" time with his sisters. 
Mr. Mister is super excited to become a big brother.  At first he wasn't too sure about a baby, but now he's excited.

Well, that was our week.  Thank you for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment.  I love hearing from y'all.

Until next time,

The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - August 6, 2016

Join me and Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers as we recap our week.

Hey y'all! How was your week? This week went really smoothly.  It is sometimes hard to keep myself on task when we start the school year early.  It's sad, but true.  Sometimes even Mama wants to slack off.  I'm hoping next week we can add in Wiggle Workshop at our local library.  Now on to our homeschool week.


Bee had a really good week. She's doing well in all of her subjects, but seems to be really excelling in her piano lessons. 


She's doing so well, we are looking at having to purchase a new electronic keyboard for her. It would be great to get her a real piano, but we move to much for that.  I'm looking for a used weighted keyboard with pedals for her. 


Bug had an exciting week. She ready her first sentence, "I am Sam." She was so excited, she had a hard time going to sleep that night. 


She is doing great concentrating on her school work and staying focused during "school." I only wish I could say she was listening well the rest of the time.  She just has so much energy it's sometimes difficult to keep her busy while Bee finishes her school work.


Mr. Mister really seems to be struggling with his potty training this week. One day he woke up dry and stayed dry all day, and the next we went through most of his shorts and underwear.  The frustrating thing is he usually does very well when we are not at home.  Pray for me to have patients while I wait for things to "click" for him.


Mr. Mister is still doing well with entertaining himself while his sisters do school work.  He is rather excited that he gets to "do" Preschool next year.  Let's hope his enthusiasm last until next year.

Well, that was our week.  Thank you for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment.  I love hearing from y'all.

Until next time,

The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - July 30, 2016

Join me and Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers as we recap our week.

Hey y'all! How was your week? My week seemed super long.  It was our second week of the school year and we started off with our air conditioner not working starting Sunday afternoon.  We made a quick call to our landlord, but he wasn't able to get someone to come out and check it until Monday afternoon. We are not the type of people who do well without air conditioning, so Mr. Daddy got us a hotel and then treated us to a movie Monday morning.  It took until almost dinner time for the house to cool off.  This put off our school week by one day, meaning we had to have a make up day of Saturday. 

I had a doctors appointment this week and my doctor is really happy with results of my medication change. It's always nice to hear good news from the doctor. Now on to our homeschool week.


Bee really struggles with trying to stay of track this week.  The one day off really threw her for a loop.  She did really well in her piano lessons this week.


Bug is really loving Kindergarten.  The bonus her being the second child is she wants to be just like her big sister, so she's in a rush to "grow up."


Mr. Mister is doing well playing by himself while the girls do school work at the table.  It's hard to believe that he will be doing Preschool next year.

Well, that was our week.  Thank you for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment.  I love hearing from y'all.

Until next time,
