This is how we celebrate the end of our first year of homeschool. So proud of this boy and all his hard work.
I can’t get Everything Is Awesome (from the Lego Movie) out of my head. I wonder why……

Amos got a booster seat and is playing with it before we put it in the van. He’s pretending to drive to McDonald’s and Chic-Fil-a and Skylanders are his happy meal toys. I think he is also pretending to talk on the phone.
We bought him a Mickey Mouse blanket last night. It’s huge, like for a twin size bed. I think he’s in love.
Happiness is a box full of discontinued scent shower gel on your door step :)
Connor drew a picture of the two of us on his word find because “he loves me so much.” #perksofhomeschooling
Apples, stories, and records! Oh yes!
When you homeschool, you get to do cool stuff like worksheets in your bunk bed. #perksofhomeschooling #Mariojammies
Last Sunday, Mother’s day, we all woke up in bad moods.
Had it been an average Sunday, I would have written off our rotten attitudes as “Oh well, let’s all go to bed early tonight and try again tomorrow.” But for some reason, I decided I was going to set some unreasonable expectations around…
This is why I read Melissa’s posts. I’ve been a mom for 9 years and most of the mother’s days I’ve been apart of were like this. In the trenches like any other day and not being made to feel special on a day that that is supposed to happen. Melissa is real. Her beautiful family and beautiful photos for a moment make you think her life is perfect. But if you read her words you see her heart. How she feels and what she cares about. Thanks for being brave and sharing the beautiful and the not so beautiful sides of motherhood.
