Everson Home Academy: Starting K5!!!

I always said that I was not going to homeschool...But when it came time for me to start looking for a school, and our options, homeschooling seemed to be the only choice. Now I'm not sure if it will be the only option years down the road...I'm hoping that in a few years from now, Christian school will be our choice. 

When looking for a curriculum, I knew right off the bat I needed something with more structure, less lesson planning on my part, and something that would do the teaching aspect for me. It all seems way too overwhelming to me to plan the lessons, organize the work, and all the craft stuff is just not my style. I was looking for something where I could be more of an assistant so that my son felt like he was being taught by someone else. That's what drew me in when I was looking at online video programs. 

It didn't take me too long to see that Bob Jones has an online Distance Learning program for homeschoolers. I loved the freedom it offered as teachers are teaching the lessons to the kids and I'm being a helper for my child. 

This homeschooling a child is all too new to me. (even for being homeschooled my whole school career) And that's why I couldn't get myself into a HUGE curriculum search, mix and match things, and 'do it on my own.' I guess you can say I took the easy road. But I'm growing, and we'll see how this year goes.

One other major source of helps, tips, and info has been Pinterest! As I'm sure many homeschooling moms do the same! Here's a printout I found for our weekly plan so I can write down what we've done for the day! (www.homeschoolingonadime.com) I think I get the most excitement out of the organization papers I find on Pinterest than school being done! :)

Lincoln has done six lessons so far and he seems to really like math. We save that subject for last. ;) Hopefully he'll have the same enthusiasm about math through out the year! The lessons aren't too long and it gives us time to do review, play games, and enjoy other fun stuff together. Kindergarten is still a learn while you play age, which makes it even more fun for us! 

Please share any tips or helps that you might want to offer. Anything that to get us through the year! And any suggestions on 1st grade curriculum. (?)

Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up over at iHomeschool Network during their blog hop. Be sure to check out the other bloggers for more curriculum ideas and to see what everyone else is using this year!

Late Birthday Post...very late

I have no good explanation...but I am WAY behind on things and am just enjoying our last few weeks of summer before homeschooling officially starts this fall. (sigh)

I meant to get this post together a long time ago... Someone had a birthday...last month...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Beckham!!!

My baby is gone for good now as he has entered into toddler-hood. :( Potty training has started, words are s.l.o.w.l.y becoming the norm, and sleeping through the night is....yah...we're working on that one.

I wanted to try and start the tradition of asking him some question, but when I asked him if I could interview him, he said, "no" and ran to get a ball. Beckham is not the one to be interested in random questions. He's always busy doing something like kicking or shooting a ball. He's the athletic one out of the two boys! :) Just recently he has learned to catch. He can even bounce pass, catch, and dribble a basketball!

Outside is his favorite place be, if he can't be out, he'll try to find someone who's willing to play catch or help him get the ball out of his indoor hoop when it gets stuck. Big brother is an easy target and usually ends up being the punching bag as well! Rough housing is another favorite and Beckham usually wins! He's all boy and I love that my boys are different, but still enjoy being together at times.

Beckham's love language is touch and he's such a cuddle bug. A BIG momma's boy. :) I don't want him to grow out of that, and so I probably do baby him...a little! ;) 

Some of his favorite words:
shoe-shoes, outside, bye, mama, dada (he uses this word for lots of things), mine (newest one), ball, no, poo, ew, choo-choo, hot...there's more, but these are the most used... We did some signing with please, more, and drink, so he still does that. He does still point quite a bit. A lot of his phrases don't sound like much, but you can sometimes tell what he means by the tone. Like "I don't know" is a shrug with the tone flux that everyone does. He's good at picking up on those. He enjoys singing into microphones with very intense, serious facial expressions. Dancing and exercising in the middle of the store is a hobby of his as well!

I sometimes wonder if his speech is really delayed or if he's just too lazy because big brother is SUCH a talker. Within the last month I have noticed that Beckham does understand more than we think, and is starting to communicate better and is picking up on words. So I'm not real worried... Hopefully he will start talking more real soon! 

Helping out with chores is another favorite of Beckham's. Dishes, folding clothes, putting clothes in the dryer, sweeping, and vacuuming are some of the things he helps out with. He thinks he's helping, but...in the end it ends up being more work for me... LOL! 

And that's most of what it's like for the life of my two year old! Hopefully next year we'll start the birthday interview and get that posted.

Lincoln - 5 year old questions

Today is Lincoln's 5th birthday! Can't believe how fast this year went by! I also can't believe that it's been a year since I last logged onto my blog! I really want to get back and do some updates on the kids and life in general.
So here is Lincoln's yearly questioner that I started last year. Might need to change it up next year or ask some more questions. These are so fun!

Me: I'm going to ask you some questions, Lincoln.
Lincoln: Ok, what's the question?

1. What is your favorite color? All of them...actually just one, Blue. My favorite color is blue

2. What is your favorite toy? A new Legos Star Wars set, and Indiana Jones Lego set. (We don't have Indiana Jones...yet...)

3. What is your favorite fruit? Strawberries

4. What is your favorite tv show? You know, it's Avengers 

5. What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch? Uh, a bagel. A pizza bagel

6. What is your favorite outfit? Bumble Bee, he's cool. He turns into a weird car

7. What is your favorite game? Avengers

8. What is your favorite snack? Pizza

9. What is your favorite animal? A giraffe. he has a long neck. But I'm talking about a baby giraffe.

10. What is your favorite song? The B.I.B.L.E.

11. What is your favorite book? Super Heroes 

12. Who is your best friend? Sean

13. What is your favorite cereal? I like the crunchy square things that have sugar on them. what are they called? (cinnamon toast crunch)

14. What is your favorite thing to do outside? Play Star Wars with a light saber

15. What is your favorite drink? Orange Juice

16. What is your favorite holiday? A holiday when it snows. snow is coming up! Everyone is waiting for it!

17. What do you like to take to bed with you at night? My son. (his teddy bear. I just found out the other day that it is his son....)

18. What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? Didn't we already do breakfast? um...I like pizza from Pizza Hut. (just to clarify, I don't allow this)

19. What do you want for dinner on your birthday? I would like a cake and with some birthday pupcakes. (cupcakes. Still struggles to say that word. He used to say puc-cakes, and I know my mom gets a kick out of that as I used to say things backwards when I was his age.) 

20. What do you want to be when you grow up? A builder. I wanna build a robot and be a bad guy. No just kidding. That was just a joke.

I guess some things don't change! Lincoln likes to keep things pretty regular from day to day!
 Being goofy after trick-or-treating. We were doing "nose picking shots!"

Menu Planning Monday

I thought I'd do something fun and join in on the public announcement of our week's menu plan...

I have a confession....Pinterest is my go-to menu. Most, if not all, of these recipes came from Pinterest. Is that sad? It's just so easy and I have found some keepers! I've even stared a board called "Foods I make on a regular basis!" Follow if you like! :)

(I'm not sure on what the "rules" are for pictures and on sharing other people's pics...and I always forget to take my own or don't feel like messing with it because I am not a photographer...so... sorry for lack of pics and please enjoy the few that I took!) :)

So here is a peak at our menu for this week:

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken - The whole family LOVES this recipe and the chicken is so addicting! I sometimes double the recipe so that there's enough for lunch the next day! The fried rice recipe in the link is pretty good too!

Taco Pizza - I can't wait to try this one! It looks so good!

Honey Garlic Pork Chops - Also a new recipe that I can't wait to try!

Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti - This is the only way to make spaghetti now! YUMMY!!!

For dessert today I made a pumpkin chocolate chip bread. It doesn't taste a whole lot like pumpkin bread and wish it did. So...might need to mess around with the recipe. I took a pic after Lincoln and I took a taste test. Lincoln says it passes. But Joe, and the other hand, doesn't like that it doesn't taste like pumpkin bread.


On Sunday I didn't go to church because of two little ones with the sniffles, so I made some frozen breakfast burritos. This is a first and I enjoyed the ones that my mom made last week, I had to try myself! I made egg, ham, and cheese burritos and hope to try other kinds in the near future! It's so easy with a quick pop in the microwave and they're ready to go!

Another fun thing to make is baby food! This week I was able to pull out my Sage Spoonfuls box that I won in a twitter party and put it to good use! I had won the "Let's Get Started Package" and after the first try, I LOVE it!!!! 

And so does Beckham! We made some apple puree!!!

Not that you really care what we are eating this week... But if you have a go-to recipe that never fails, or have a fun baby food recipe that you think I should try, please share! If I pick yours, I'll try it and blog about it! :)

update on kiddos and life

I've missed blogging...These kiddos have kept me busy...

Beckham at 2 weeks

 Beckham with big brother at 14 weeks

It's hard to believe that it's been almost 4 months since Beckham was born. What's even harder to believe is that Lincoln will be 4 in about a month! CRAZY!!! He is growing into such a big boy. A little man really. Some of the things he comes up with cracks me up and I wonder to my self, "what in the world? where did he come up with that?!" I really should write them down. (cuz now I can't come up with any...)

My favorite thing about Lincoln right now is his imagination. From pretending to be Iron Man, playing Blue's Clues (he always makes me Blue...), to building robots. I decided that for his birthday, we will be getting him some big boy Legos! He's doing the best he can with what he's got now, which isn't a whole lot!

I've been trying to do preschool with him. But with baby and house work and lack of motivation....yea...I'm terrible at it...anyways...This is a new week...

Beckham is growing WAY TO FAST!!! I'm thinking he's my last baby and I don't want to let go, miss anything, or make him grow too fast! He's a very smiley baby and LOVES his daddy! He enjoys watching big brother and has just found a new growl/voice thing...it's so cute!

Right now Lincoln are waiting excitedly for Uncle Ken and Aunt RuthAnn to get in. They are moving to Greenville from Colorado and should be here soon! RuthAnn will be traveling with the quartet (that Joe travels with,) playing the piano. We are excited for this opportunity for them and happy to have family in town! With that happening, Joe and I have been looking for a house to buy thinking this might mean we will be here longer. 

so...kids, house hunting, in-laws moving in town, some preschooling, church, and family time...I'll TRY to fit blogging in there. What should I blog about?

Beckham Scott is here! (late update)

Photo credit: Cathy VanLaanen

Beckham Scott arrived on Thursday, June 14, 2012 at 5:29am. He weighed 7lbs. 7oz., and was 18.5 in. long. (not as big as I was predicting) Delivery went smoothly and we are adjusting nicely to being a family of four!

Sorry for not keeping up to date like I did with my pregnancy. I hardly touched my computer in that first week of being home. My parents came in the day after Beckham was born and we stayed busy with trips to downtown, the flee market, and stuff around the house. I felt really good after this delivery, that sitting around while mom and dad were in town didn't make much sense. 

Lincoln enjoying some time with Grandpa!

When Beckham was about two weeks, we took a trip up to Midland, MI to visit Joe's family. It was such a wonderful stay. HOT, but fun times with family and friends! Joe and I really missed Michigan and did not want to leave! :)

On our way home we stopped by my sister's in Indiana. Lincoln always loves going to Aunt Brooke's and Uncle Everett's! (He remembers the Christmas presents...)

Lincoln and Beckham enjoying their Aunt Brooke!

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. It's nice to have my energy back. Even though I'm now getting up for midnight feedings, it's not the same as pregnancy exhaustion. It feels really good to have my body back. Now I'm hoping to start working out soon. I'd like to try running. I've never tried and I've always hated running. I'm interested in giving the Couch to 5K running a try. (Pinterest find) My plan is to start next week as I will then be 5.5 weeks postpartum. I'm also (slowly) reading through the book called 'Move it Mom! How to get your body back after baby.' (previously free kindle book) I REALLY want to commit to some type of work out! I'm SO bad at it. I just don't have enough motivation....BUT...I'm gonna try this time! :) I can use all the encouragement I can get!

For the most part my days consist of nursing, diaper changing, PBS, and Netflix. Adventuring out on my own with a newborn is still scary to me. I did go grocery shopping with both kids last week, but it was a quick trip and Beckham got pretty mad at the end... He won't try a bottle or paci for moments like those. Hopefully he will change his mind soon!

Joe had a little break from traveling on the weekends with the quartet and will be back at it starting this weekend. The schedule looks pretty full all through the fall. I'm not sure how much I'll travel with him this fall.

It was really neat to have the quartet sing at our 'home church,' Calvary Baptist in Midland.

Ever since we got back from Midland, Joe's had the artist's itch again and is pumping out some really cool art. You can see what he's been up to here.

I feel that I have so much more to update everyone on...maybe this will get me back into blogging more! You may have noticed that I like to steal people's pictures. That's another thing I want to work on...taking my own pictures so that I have something to show for on my blog! I have ideas and hope to keep you all up to date more than I have been!

So with that, here's one that I LOVE! :)
First signs of Beckham's smile!

Pregnancy update: 37 weeks, 6 days (maybe last update!)

I've been bad again at not keeping up with the pregnancy updates. I've not been motivated to do anything! If I do do something, it just exhausts me.

This week Joe's grandmother passed away. We knew it was coming and prayed about God's timing as Joe would have to leave me for the funeral. This was almost cutting it too close though! Thursday I had a doctor's appointment. They said that since I haven't had any signs of labor starting, they weren't going to examine me just yet. But gave warning that anything could happen over the weekend and to just take it easy! 

I felt great and thought it'd be find for Joe to leave us from Friday early morning to late Monday night. We went up to Charlotte, got a hotel, swam in the pool, and had a good time relaxing as a family. Lincoln really liked the pool! 

I said goodbye to Joe at 4am Friday as he went off on the shuttle to the airport. We went home, did some grocery shopping, and went out for dinner with some friends with a movie at their house afterwards. I was tired at the end of that day but still felt fine.

Saturday was a different story. I was exhausted, so I laid around for a little bit in the morning. By afternoon/evening I was so uncomfortable with my back hurting and braxton hicks contractions happening every time I moved out of my spot on the couch! I was afraid to do anything or go out anywhere. I also noticed, but thought maybe it was my imagination, that my belly looked a little lower. I skyped with my mom and she even thought the same! I kinda started freaking out in my head. I didn't want to take any chances of jump starting labor, so Lincoln and I stayed home from church on Sunday.

I sat on the couch, played Wii with Lincoln, and watched movies. After a quick afternoon nap and supper approaching, we were ready to get out of the house! I picked up some McDonald's and took Lincoln to the park. I just sat on the bench. Contractions weren't coming a much as they were on Saturday, and the nap really helped. I'm glad we got out and enjoyed some fresh air!

Lincoln and I went to bed around 9:30, which is early, but ended up watching a movie. Somehow we were still up at 11:45 getting a snack. But 5 min. after his snack, Lincoln rolled over and was OUT! He didn't wake up till 9:45am! SO glad we slept in. I felt great and did some house work. But couple hours into that, contractions started up again and my back was really sore! I can't walk right now and I'm propped up with pillows all around me. Baby is very active and I'm waiting for the evening to end quickly so that I can start our car ride to Charlotte. Today has gone by pretty fast, and I can't wait to see Joe! As soon as he gets here, baby can come! 

So that was my weekend. I feel that baby will makes it's arrival any day now. I keep thinking since baby is measuring at a June 11th date and if things repeat like my last pregnancy with delivering exactly a week early, tonight or tomorrow might be the day! AND....full moon tonight if that matters or not. :)

I forgot that the camera was on mirror setting...and No, my face is not that tan. I had a shadow on my face and couldn't get the lighting any brighter. Hopefully Joe will get a good before shot of me before we leave for hospital.

How far along: 37 weeks, 6 days

Countdown: 2 weeks, 1 day

Size of baby: Watermelon (19 to 22in, 7lbs)

Maternity clothes: Last week I bought some maternity/nursing wear. I just could not find anything else to wear in my closet, but didn't want to buy more maternity considering I only have a few weeks left...so I'm glad I found some nursing wear at Target that will last longer than the few weeks of pregnancy that's left! :)

Movement: always LOTS of movement. It's funny how it seemed he was low early on in the pregnancy, and now I can't get him down! His feet were constantly in my ribs until just recently I think he might've dropped a little. Last night was the worst though. Felt like somersaults and really had hiccups! 

What I miss: My old body. :)

Sleep: Has been rough, but not too bad. Heart burn has died down (thinking again, maybe because he's dropped) but my hips hurt and I can only sleep on my sides. So everything is still sore when I wake up.

Symptoms: Hips, back, and everything in that general area hurt. Braxton Hicks contractions have been intense. Nothing painful yet, but stronger. Especially this weekend...(while Joe's out of state of course)

Cravings: I've been wanting something chocolaty, and I always want sushi!

Best moment of the week: I come waddling out to the pool with Lincoln in my sun dress with a bowl of watermelon and fruit to snack on. Lincoln says,
 "mom, you're HUGE!" 
I asked, "ya? does it look like I swallowed a watermelon?"
"YA, a GI-NOR-MOUS one!!!" 

What I'm looking forward to: Picking up Joe tonight, and then having this baby!

Pregnancy Update: 33 weeks and 1 day!

How far along: 33 weeks, 1 day

I hate how my hair is the same style in every shot. I should start taking pics on Sundays. That's when I actually do my hair!

Countdown: 6 weeks, 6 days

Size of baby: Large cantaloupe! (19-22in, 5.5lbs)

Maternity clothes: Anything long and stretchy! Dresses and tanks with bikini top underneath!!! (hot week)

Movement: His kicks, punches, stretches, (whatever he's doing) HURT!!! At times it feels like a heel is stuck up in between my lung and rib cage! I do not remember Lincoln being quite as active as this one! And LOTS of hiccups!!!

What I miss: My body pillow....

Sleep: Can't get comfortable...heartburn and indigestion always starts right before bed.

Symptoms: Like I said, still more heartburn. Clumsy, pregnancy brain, tired, and lazy..... (maybe some of these aren't REALLY pregnancy symptoms...) :-/

Cravings: Anything with chocolate! I've been eating these chocolate covered, peanut butter granola bars from Aldi's....(hence the heartburn probably) oh yum!  

Best moment of the week: my doctor telling me that she's liking the progress, and to keep eating whatever I've been eating! More chocolate granola bars for me!!! :) OH!! and finding a $70 high chair for $17 at Walmart! Woohoo!

What I'm looking forward to: Getting the kid's room finished.

Day 2 of #21Days4Sons ~ The Importance of Obedience

I'm taking part in the #21Days4Sons over at The MOB Society where we are reading Warrior Prayers for the first 21 days of May.

So far we are in day 2 and I'm really enjoying the challenges, the book, and praying the scripture for my sons.

Today's topic is on Obedience. I was challenged by how important it is for me, as the mother, to teach my son(s) Biblical obedience. I'm the type of person that likes a visual aid, and I love the example that the author gave us on how the teaching of obedience lies a great opportunity in sharing the Gospel message with my son. She used it like this:

“Son, you’re right. You didn’t obey mommy.  God says you must obey mommy and daddy, doesn’t He?  It’s hard to obey, isn’t it?  Everything in you wants your own way!  It’s fun to hit your brother sometimes.  It’s fun to be too loud and sometimes, it makes you feel good about yourself to tell mommy no.  But God, Who made you, says you must obey.  You can’t do it by yourself, can you?  No matter how hard you try to be good and obey mommy, you just can’t get it right all the time.  That’s why we love God so much, Son!  He knew you couldn’t do it by yourself!  He knew you would choose to sin instead of obey!  He knew you would need help!  So He sent His only Son Jesus to die for your sins and take the punishment you deserved.  Then God raised Jesus from the dead and now Jesus is with God in heaven, just waiting for you to confess your sin and ask Him to help you fight the sin in your heart!  Isn’t that great news?  We need Jesus! Let’s pray now and ask Jesus to help you!”
(McGlothlin, Brooke (2011-05-02). Warrior Prayers: Praying the Word for Boys in the Areas They Need it Most (Kindle Locations 318-325).  . Kindle Edition.) 

I'm seeing that I really need to take these opportunities when they come about and teach my son how important it is to obey. I sometimes tend to be a "fly by the seat of my pants" parent mostly because I'm too lazy to get to the heart of the issue. My prayer for myself is that I will have a plan and a renewed vision on the importance of teaching obedience to my son.

"If our boys never learn the importance of obeying and see their inability to obey by themselves, how will they ever recognize their need for a Savior?"

WOW!! I hope and pray that I will set an example of obedience for my son(s)! Today was revealing and I'm looking forward to see what else is ahead in the #21Days4Sons.

Today's Warrior Prayers through the Scripture:

Warrior Prayers for OBEDIENCE
  • Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, may Lincoln obey the Lord our God so that it will go well with him (Jeremiah 42:6). 
  • May Lincoln obey his parents in the Lord, for this is right (Ephesians 6:1)
  • May Lincoln obey his leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over his soul, as those who will have to give an account. Let Lincoln do this with joy and not with groaning (Hebrews 13:17). 
  • May Lincoln obey God rather than men (Acts 5:29). 
  • May Lincoln return to the Lord his God, and obey with all his heart and all his soul all the commands God has given (Deuteronomy 30:2).
  • May Lincoln walk after the Lord his God and fear Him and keep His commandments and obey His voice.  May Lincoln serve Him and hold fast to Him (Deuteronomy 13:4). 
  • May Lincoln stop his sinning and begin to obey the Lord his God (Jeremiah 26:13). 
  • May Lincoln obey Jesus’ commandments, and remain in His love (John 15:10). 
  • May Lincoln show his love for Christ by obeying His commands (John 14:15). 
  • May we be full of joy at Lincoln’s obedience (Romans 16:19). 
  • May Lincoln obey his leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over his soul, as those who will have to give an account.  Let him do this with joy and not with groaning (Hebrews 13:17). 
  • May Lincoln submit himself therefore to God.  May he resist the devil, so he will flee from him (James 4:7).
  • May Lincoln submit to laborers of the Gospel and to everyone who joins in the work (1 Corinthians 16:16).
  • May Lincoln submit to others out of reverence for Christ (Ephesians 5:21).
  • May Lincoln be subject to the Father of spirits and live (Hebrews 12:9). 
  • May Lincoln agree with God, and be at peace; so good will come to him (Job 22:21). 
  • May Lincoln be subject to the governing authorities.  For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God (Romans 13:1).
  • May Lincoln submit himself to the Lord (2 Chronicles 30:8).
  • May Lincoln, who is younger, be subject to the elders.  May he clothe himself with humility toward others, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5). 
  • For freedom Christ has set us free; may Lincoln stand firm therefore, and not submit again to a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1). 
If you're interested in joining in and would like to pray along with us for our sons, grandsons, and/or future sons (like sons in-law), go to The MOB Society for more information! I won't be posting everyday, but I do usually tweet some thoughts through out the day on the topic that's given, if you'd like to follow along: follow @bethanyev
