January 2013 Wrap Up

Here’s a glimpse at what’s been going on with our little family.

January started off with sickness for all of us:  bronchitis, pneumonia, and sinus infections.  We went through 4 boxes of tissue in 36 hours.  CRAZY!


When Skylar feels bad, she insists on sleeping on this mat.  This is pretty much where she spent most of her days and nights.


Sickness brought a LOT of television watching for us.  We got rid of our satellite t.v. last summer so we watched a couple of new shows on HULU and Netflix.

Oh Downton Abbey…how had we not met before?


And this show is totally addicting!


With the start of a new semester in school, we started a new curriculum!


We are LOVING this curriculum!  Both the girls really love the art lessons.


They also love the cooking segment each week.


After studying the state of Massachusetts, we made a Boston Creme Pie.  It was delicious!


I also had the opportunity to attend the It Works Global conference in Tampa.  One word:  INSPIRING!


I got to dress up for a party one night of the conference.


The night before I flew out to Tampa, I stayed at my sister’s house.  I loved taking silly pictures with my niece, Rebecca.


Jenny, Jeff, Chris, and I also enjoyed a date night out when I returned home from my trip.  It was great!  The four of us don’t get to go out by ourselves very often.


And last, but certainly not least, we finally got therapy services set up for Skylar here at home.  No more driving 4 hours round-trip to Phoenix every week.


So there you have it.  A month filled with illness, travel, and new adventures.  It was crazy, but it was good!

I can’t wait to see what February holds for our family.  I’m planning on doing lots of reading, crafting, and wrapping!

I’d love to hear what you all have been up to!

Make it GREAT!

  1. I found your blog by searching for Trail Guide to Learning. We are also in Arizona and are currently with K12, but thinking of switching to TGTL. I was so interested to read that you did the same thing. What was your main reason for leaving K12?
