Happy New Year!

Here's to a great 2009. I'm definitely making some resolutions this year (and keeping them!). Its going to be a very busy year with a wild one year old and a information absorbing 3 1/2 year old. I'm gonna start homeschooling Connor (for now, not a long term thing for us) and I have some great ideas for learning projects for him. Its funny when you tell people that you're gonna home school a 3 year old, many act like its a tragedy, when in reality, any stay at home mom knows that you're always homeschooling them. Everything you do with them is teaching them something. We're just taking a more structured approach to it. I'm actually sorta nervous about it because I have found that I get very frustrated when he doesn't seem to understand things. For example today I was trying to get him to try tracing some letters, but he doesn't know how to hold a pencil so he just scribbles and then I get annoyed. And I know I can't expect him to just know how to do it, but its still frustrating. So I guess it will be a learning experience for both of us.

As for blogging, I'm going to do Project 365. I read about it on another blog and thought it might be cool to try. Basically you take a picture a day for an entire year. It should be something neat to look back on.

Happy New Year!!

I was working with Austin .... trying to preschool him myself.. .and I'm a working mom... its very frustrating... but so rewarding when he suddenly just does something that you know you have worked so hard teaching him...
