First week of PreK!

We finished Busters first week of at home preK. He had alot of fun and did really well. The first day I told him it was time to do school work he got a upset at me and had to sit on his bed. I think he sat in there for like 5 minutes then he decided he was ready he came out and did really well. Today he was begging to start school when he got up :) I was really impressed a couple of days ago he sat by me and we went through the letters sounds. He knew almost all of them! I highly recommend the Leap Frog Letter Factory DVD. Anyways here is a little bit of the work he did this week. We don't have a specific curriculum I have just been making it up on my own.

Pregnancy Update

I just thought I'd let you all know that I had my quad test done last Thursday. I got a call on Monday saying that I had tested positive for an increased risk of the baby having down syndrome. I went in and had the test redone, but the results were the same. My CNM said my test came back giving me a 1 in 179 chance instead of 1 in 1,000 like it should be. So my hubby and I will be driving up on September 10th to see a specialist and have an ultrasound done. Hopefully the ultrasound will clear everything up for us. Most likely the baby is perfectly fine, but we just want to make sure. If you all could keep us in your prayers that would be great. I will update later with more info. No matter what happens this baby is a blessing from God and we love it already.

Well we went camping on Saturday! We promised buster we'd go camping this summer, and we were planning to go this week(but my husbands vacation got changed). We decided we had better go this weekend or it probably wouldn't happen this year. Buster had a blast and he loved it all. Sweetpee loved the beach and everything until bed time. As soon as I told her it was time to sleep in the tent she was not a happy camper. Also our air mattress deflated so it was not too comfortable I think buster was the only one who got much sleep. I got some cute pics anyways so here they are:

Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Today I'm in the process of tackling my kids room. I'm trying to get rid of unescisary toys, clothes they have grown out of ect. I also am trying to figure out how best to reorginize it. I will post a pic later of my progress. I was also in the process of cleaning out there closet that is full of blankets clothes ect. I got pretty far until a mouse ran by my leg and freaked me out, so now I have to wait for my hubby to do some mouse killing before I can finish the closet :(

This week!

Well my poor little boy got a bladder infection this week :( I was able to get him to the Dr. on Thursday before the weekend. Luckily I caught it early enough that it wasn't too bad of one, but he was misrable for a couple of days in the bathroom every 5 min. or so. He is feeling alot better today though. I was bummed to relize he most likely got it from playing in some water at Sunset Bay on Sunday. His Dr. said that beach has really high levels of bacteria in the water, and to stear clear of there. So I think we will scratch that one off the list. Luckily Sweetpea didn't get sick at all.

I made it to 14 weeks yesterday so I'm 1/3 done now :) just starting my second trimester. My morning sickness has gotten alot better the last couple of weeks, so that is nice. I started feeling quickining(or early baby movements) when I was about 12 weeks. When I went to my CNM on the 31st she said that was pretty early, but possible. The baby gave her a little bit of a time finding the heart beat. She finally got it and it was nice and steady around 160.

I hope everyone has a good weekend :)

Family Coast Trip

We went to the Coast yesterday with a bunch of my family. My brothers kids are hear right now and this is the first time we have seen them in a year. So we all thought it would be fun to have a day at the beach. The kids all had a blast and got completely filthy. Sweetpea loved the water and couldn't get enough of playing in it. Here are some pics of my kids from yesterday.
