New blog

I just wanted to let those who are interested know about my new blog. It's strictly about my weight loss journey and that way I can keep this a family blog and use that for recording my weight loss. I'll still put little snippets about it in here, but for the most detailed report you can check there. :)

if you don't care, it's all good! I just wanted to let you know it's there in case you were interested.

It's just been a pretty lazy day here. I sure wish the sun would come out every morning. it would just get me off to a better start every day! Today all I have done is a load of laundry, nap, and a workout. Otherwise I've just sat around for the most part. But I need to have those days sometimes. I've been so much better about getting things done lately so I'm not beating myself up about it. Just enjoying the little break.

Tomorrow I am getting together at the park with my friend Sarah and her two little girls. Should be a nice afternoon. I'm also hoping to start really working on a plan for next years school curriculum. Gotta start early so that I give myself plenty of time to plan things out. Still trying to decide if I want to take the leap into buying a curriculum or just plan it all myself. I've been researching curriculums for purchase and I'm just so scared to buy one. After purchasing Sonlight in February and having that be a complete disaster I'm nervous about buying anything else. I was lucky with Sonlight because they have a money back guarantee if it doesn't work for your child. It was a literature based curriculum that was just too advanced for Jenna.

I know I don't have many homeschoolers who read this blog (or maybe there are more than I am aware of) but if anyone has any suggestions for a 9 year old girl with high functioning autism who is a very visual learner and has the language skills of about a 6 year old please help! :) Thank you!

Just to leave you with a cute picture- Jenna loves her little brother so much. Well, Marah does too. They really just all love each other :) It's so sweet. Jenna loves to steal Alex away from me and take him into her room to watch movies with her. He usually cooperates for about 20-30 minutes before he gets bored. But she is very patient with him and plays with him and takes good care of him.

  1. Ash, can you get her into K12 next year? I bet their elementary stuff is pretty good. And it's free! And then you could supplement the lessons however you want. I don't think you should buy curriculum. I don't think you'll be satisfied with any of it. But I think you could easily supplement any free curriculum just fine.

    The photo of Alex and Jenna is so cute! It's so weird to see him sitting there like a kid instead of a baby.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I am always grateful when you take the time to let me know what you thought of my posts. If something in a post inspires you to blog, please link me up!
