Dressing the part

Homeschool in the new year is going well and I feel like we are back in the swing of things, all caught up from our Christmas break.

I am looking forward to getting a new printer again so I can print off some fun unit studies for the kids to enjoy. I like to make it fun if I can.

I was thrilled today when Princess Belle actually was excited by the things we did in school today, she even declared it fun!!  As a teenager I can tell you that is a thing that never happens!

One thing that I really I love about homeschool is how the little girls delight in coming to do their work in various states of dress.  One day the kids will school in jammies or in their favorite dress, another day the little girls are dressed as princesses, and yet another day I am teaching fairies!  It is just as fun for me as it is for them.

Now That's Better

Before homeschool today, I puttered around the kitchen organizing things better.  One thing I did was clear off my counter top.  I moved my coffee station next to the microwave and made it a more efficient space.  This will hopefully allow less clutter to gather in this corner.  

This is what it looked like at its best without the ever present clutter.

This is what it looks like now:

And this is what my newly cleared counters look like:

Little Prince hasn't finally started eating better again!  He hasn't been eating well since Christmas (like hardly at all) and I have been worried.

But he actually asked for a sandwich and ate it!!  Here's hoping that this is the beginning of his journey back to eating.

In the past hunger strikes, his first meal back was all he needed.  So I am cautiously optimistic.
