Wow, last time I had a blog entry was almost 2 years ago?!  mamamakat has became a blogless blog for far too long, lol.  I'd like to start blogging again.  Let's see if I can keep it up this time around.

What's been going on with me?  Well, I'm still a stay-at-home mom.  And now my girls are attending a parents co-op preschool for once a week and we are sorta homeschooling in between as well.  I figure I can include more lesson time since they only get 2-3 hours of "school" each week.  Noelle was in a preschool from 9-12, 5 days a week last year.  So I'd like to keep her mind in the "school" setting as much before she enters kinder next year.  Gasp! She's going to be a kinder?  No way.

The homeschool curriculum I'm using is from a website called  The name is kinda cheesy, not gonna lie.  But it's free and the curriculum was written by a mom who has homeschooled her kids.  It covers everything a regular preschool teach and then also incorporate bible lessons.  That I like.  Best part is that the curriculum is FREE! You can either print them off the website or pay a little and have them send you it in book form.  And you basically just follow this 36-week program.  Each week, they introduce alphabet, number, color, social things, bible theme, etc. etc.  I even had Arwen started on this too.  She's still not quite understanding the whole sitting down, school part yet.  But she's not even 2 yet, and I think she's been doing fantastically so far.  

Anyways, I better stop here now and tend to my girls.  They are currently playing and listening to Andy Z music in the front room (one of their fav things to do together).  

---edited to add---

Totally forgot to mention this part.  But my most proud accomplishment from this summer has to be completing this 100 reading lessons with Noelle.  She is 4.5 years old now and she can sight read!! I'm so proud of this girl!!  We also have been frequenting the libraries.  I hope this will help both kids become avid readers.
