A long time

Yes it has been a very long time since I have put a post on here.  We have been busy.  First off we went on a 2 month long vacation while my husbands job took a break so we decided to drive out fifth wheel from Seminole Texas to Port Aransas Texas.  That was a great decision.  We left at the end of January and stayed until March then drove to San Antonio Texas and stayed 2 weeks there for my brother in laws Air force boot camp graduation.  That was really nice too.  My husbands mom and sister flew down to be there and one of his other brothers and girlfriend drove down also.  Port Aransas was beautiful!  We lived walking distance from the ocean at 2 different rv parks.  It was nice to have palm trees outside and grass then having the beach to walk too.  (Seminole is west texas and desert, all sand not many trees, barely grass) Our girls loved it.  We went fishing a ton and caught a lot of whiting.  We saw dolphins which was really cool, just swimming in front of you by the jetties.  You can drive on the beach there so we did that a lot.  Padre Island nation park you could drive for 60 miles and we tried 3 times and finally made it to the end. It was hard all the other times because of the low tide high tide.  At the end was really nice.  Once you get about 30 miles in there is really no one out there so its really peaceful.  We found a ton of sea shells, big ones too.  Jellyfish were all over the beach so we had to watch out for those.  We left Port Aransas before spring break so we wouldn’t be there for all the crazy party kids got there, lol.  I need to upload my photos for Port Aransas and then I can post some.  But I have some from San Antonio on here.  We did Sea World, natural bridge caverns, wild life safari, the river walk and this awesome, best place ever to eat.  I was called Chama Gaucha and your first course was like a veggie, cheese salad bar but super fancy stuff, then you second course is fried plantain, fried polenta and mashed potatoes.  Then your third course you have this card and you flip it to green when you want more meat then flip it to red when you dont so this whole time these guys keep bringing rib eye, filet migon, lamb chops, chicken legs, prime rib, leg of lamp, just so many meats you couldn’t keep up.  My favorite was the lamb chops.  They were great! Then we all decided to get desert and we all got one different kind so we could try all of them.  I got the creme brulee, all the others were: key lime pie, strawberry cheese cake, flan, triple layer chocolate cake, and some papaya pineapple ice cream thing with some liqueur on top.  It was a very nice time and the best place I have ever ate at in my life.  So here are some pics of the restaurant that my mother in law Denise took and I will do more later when I upload mine.

Got through first week of homeschool

We got through our first week of homeschooling and we love it! We are doing the sonlight curriculum for kindergarden this year and its a lot of reading but Grace loves stories and the math seems a little to easy for her but it does work on her penmanship for writing. She never writes, only her name so when it comes to writing numbers she doesn’t do it often. But as in learning shapes, colors and counting she has that in the bank :) Sonlight is Christian based bible school so she’s doing devotional’s in the morning and her bible stories with a timeline to learn when all these stories took place. Science is her favorite so far because of experiments and projects. Her read aloud is the boxcar children and she just can’t wait till we read he next chapter. This is how her schedule looks like:
Devotional
Calendar
Bible
History/geography
Read alouds
Math
Phonics/spelling
Handwriting
Creative expression
Science
Then on Fridays she does her extra curricular which is Artist pursuits. She loves art and wants to be a art teacher when she’s older.

AND THEN THE END WILL COME!

That is the over the top title of Author Brandon Andress’s new book.  I loved it and recommend it to anyone especially in times like these where everyone is obsessed with the

“end times”.  The book is funny and made me laugh a lot of times.  Brandon Andress is a very comedic author and really good with words.  This book will help with everyone’s

questions on when the world will end by taking scripture write out of the bible and putting it write in your face and making you think is this really what I want to be doing at

times like these or is this what I should be doing at times like these.  I love going to bible study’s every now and then because I feel closer to God when I am actually reading his

word and this book kind of does the same when he quotes scripture then talks about it and then you start really thinking about it.  I could see how it would make someone feel

better who is actually stressed or obsessed with all this end times stuff or if you are not stressed about end times it makes you realize you need to start thinking of the greater

good then just stuff around you.  I loved this book and cant wait to recommend it to my family for a great read!
