Disney is 47 Days Away!

We are in full waiting mode! We have our ADR's booked and we have a countdown calendar on the fridge. I started a list of outfits I need to get done for Disney and have finished 2...1 wasn't planned though! I made an Alice in Wonderland dress and a princess dress. The princess dress was actually a test run on a new pattern by fabernmix...the Vida pattern. I really liked it and will do more using that pattern! Work has kept me busy and when I get home I don't really feel like sewing... I feel like sleeping or lounging. Maybe today I can get some work done.

Going Back to Disney!

We did it! We finally decided that we couldn't go a year without visiting the World! Yah! So, Sept. 20-27 we are going to Disney, staying at Port Orleans French Quarter...our favorite resort. We will be there for free dining, homeschool days and for Sara Beth's birthday! I already have ideas of the clothing I need to make! A definite birthday outfit for her! Something with Mickey and Minnie in a birthday celebration! So exciting!

We are still working on school as working full time these past 2 months has really put us behind. That will be ending soon and we plan on catching up by end of July and having August and some of Sept off. Sara Beth is finishing up 1st grade and Ashley is finishing up 9th. Hopefully, next year we will be more on schedule and have more time for homeschool group activities!

Wow, how time flies. We have been very busy here. I recenlty accepted another part time job in the tourism industry. So I now have 2 part time jobs and i am still homeschooling and sewing. Never a dull moment. I took the kids to Colonial Willamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown last week and they had a great time. We stayed with my MIL while dh stayed home and went to work. No days off for him yet. :( We missed him and it was the first time I have been away from him for so many days, and i hated it.

The weather is starting to change, and I am ready for start planting veggies. I want to start a whole new veggie garden this year and I am going to invest in new dirt for the garden. I plan to build it up so it will grow better. Once it stops raining I hope to get it all started!

Dressing without help!

Wow! It has been forever since I posted here! Sara Beth is now 5 and way past potty training. She is 1st grade and reading. We homeschool and she loves to learn. Lately, I have thought of some things that we just baby her too much about. One big thing is getting dressed. It just seemed easier to dress her. Well, being that she is almost 5 1/2 I decided it was time to cut the umbilical cord...at least in this area. So, I showed her a few tricks and within days she can fully undress and dress on her own. Now, I realize this means she can pick out her own outfits. Today's outfit wasn't too bad...she went with a cute colorful pair of Gymboree leggins and a striped Children's Place sweater. I wouldn't have put them together, but it didn't look horrible and she wasn't going anywhere! Tonight she decided on a summer gown for bed...I hope she stays warm! Tomorrow it will be an adventure!
