Our newest little bundle Ruby Jane arrived on July 22 at 4:30pm. She weighed 6lb 14oz and was 19" long. She looks just like her 4 older sisters. A week later Bill and I still cant get over the fact that she is now here and that we have 5 daughters. Bill said to her "another one that is going to break daddies heart" you can tell he truely adores his little girls. This baby is getting tons of lovin from her big sisters as well. She is not wanting for attention and someone is always available to hold her.

Ruby Janes arrival into the world went very, very well. She was born here at home with the help of a midwife, her assistant, and of course daddy right by mommies side. The Lord surely did bless me with an easy delivery and I am greatful.

Planning The New Homeschool Year

I have decided to use my blog to track my adventures with homeschooling. I prayed a lot about what to use this year for our curriculum. I have decided to try Christian Cottage unit studies, I have been a fan of unit studies since I began homeschooling. I was going to plan out everything on my own but with a new baby in the house this year I decided this was the best option. I will also implement a lot of Charlotte Mason ideas. I have ordered the Christian Cottage study and am waiting for its arrival in the mail, hopefully it holds up to my expectations.

As I plan what resources I will be using I will post them and let you know how things go.

For my younger children I will also be using some resources from 1+1+1=1 and


New Baby Soon

So I have 3 days left till my due date. I cant wait for this baby to enter the world. I have been trying to take it easy but I feel like I have so much I should be doing. Guess I need to find a happy medium until the big day.
