Can't sleep!

I had a Butterfinger before bed and I think it might have been too much sugar for me. I have been thinking about homeschooling for over a year now and just don't know where to start.

Five in a Row sounds like a great idea to start with.
Charlotte Mason Series  is something to look into, although it will take a lot of reading.
Homeschool Highlights  has some interesting things for preschoolers.
More Charlotte Mason but this looks like there are many ideas.
Whimsy Way has her curriculum put out there to look at. It starts for kindergarten though.
Here are some preschool and kindergarten learning activities.
I need to read this!
And this...
I also cannot forget that I signed Aiden up for Nick Jr. Boost program which he loves. I think that I better let him do that tomorrow!

Happy Day

I finally did a few crafts with Aiden. I now realize how many more crafts we should be doing. He loves it! So this evening I went to the dollar store to get a few more crafting items. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack but I got what I needed and can't wait to make a Christmas tree out of a pinecone and some reindeer out of paper bags.

Make My Day

These little salt and pepper shakers from ModCloth made me smile today. I hope to one day own them!
So I see that I am quite behind on writing down daily things. We moved into a three bedroom house on December 14th, so we have been busy unpacking and decorating for Christmas. In between decorating and unpacking, I have been having pain in my lower back on my right side. I have went into the hospital a couple of times and they say that I am ok? Well I went in Monday night and my doctor happened to be there and told me I am close to a kidney infection. So she switched my medicine for ten days. I can't take it longer than that because I am too close to 28 weeks and this medicine can cause the baby to get some disease after 28 weeks. So far this medicine is making me gassy! Not happy about that.

I am happy that it has finally stopped raining after about five days. Aiden and I went outside for a walk / bike ride around our park. It was quite refreshing and I would have liked to have walked longer but a three year old can only go in circles so many times! Hopefully when Matt gets home I will be able to go for a better walk.

I am trying to think of things to do with Aiden that will keep him busy and get him to stop asking to watch tv. So today we made snowflakes and a santa ornament. I will be looking for more ideas to keep him off the tv.
