Hershey Park

sorry I havent posted much spring is so crazy busy around here and unfortunatly sickly too! With allergies and colds it truely seems (and possibly may be) as if at least one of us is always sick!I think i've slept about 9hrs in the last 2 days the baby is sick and we went to Hershey Park yesterday. When we got home at almost 11pm I jumped in the shower (it was above 80 down there) and took the baby to the emergency room. He gets these really bad coughing spells. We went to bed after 2am and then got up and got the kids off to school.....

It was hot but the kids had so much fun! Aunt Ruth, Uncle Matt, Anna, Devin, Grandma and Grandpa went with us too. Daddy didnt come which was a bummer but maybe next time. The kids loved having Anna and Devin to ride with, Micah felt a little left out cuz Devin likes to hang with Bailey, but for the most part it all went well. I cant believe how expensive hershey has gotten though! Ethan LOVED the Reeses xtreme ride its like a little roller coaster and as you ride you have a laser gun and you shoot at these lit up targets, we rode it twice and he would have rode it all day! Maddi wanted to go on the big roller coasters but she obviously isnt big enough!but she liked the scrambler. Bailey on the other had didnt want to go on the coasters but did ride one of the water coasters and got wet (he wasnt thrilled with that) and Micah liked anything that went fast! They were all pretty well behaved and I was proud of them. Me, Grandma and Grandpa were pretty much exhausted by the end of the day...the kids still wanted to ride more rides..........Ps Ethan did NOT like the characters!!!!You can see him strangling me in the picture with the Hershey bar!

Random pictures of the last few weeks

We had Micah's crossover for boyscouts. He went from wolves to bears, he was so excited! Maddi was excited cuz one of her best friends was there Ryan.

Ethan picked out his own pjs....typical boy.

The other picture is Bailey and Devin at the volleyball tournament. It was nice.

science project

Micah's science project. He had so much fun making it and maddi recommended the snowman. too cute!

Micah's homeschooled gym class

It was at our church's gym. There was even a few people there from our church who homeschool thier kids too. I met and talked to a few of the mom's who I had already talked to on the online homeschooling group. It was nice to put faces with the names. Homeschooling is challenging in some ways, but also rewarding. Micah seems (to me at least) to be improving in his reading and his confidence is improving. When he reads pages with more words on it he doesn't get so overwhelmed like before. I bought a reading comprehension book for 2nd grade at the christmas tree shop and he loves it, he was intimidated at first cuz of so many words, but now he does great. And he retains the stories and answers the questions at the end with little to no help. I'm very proud of him. I would like to go see if they have a 3rd grade book to work on over the summer. I really hope I can get him over this hump in reading so when he goes back to school next year he wont have such a hard time. When we finish the last allergy test and one more trip to the DR to see that all other reasons are cleared. I will take him to get the medication for the ADHD. I want him at home while he is trying it so I can make sure it is really helping him. Anyways

Well.....I talked to the realestate agent today. She said that it can take up to a month to hear back from them! Ugh! these last 2wks have dragged...I cant imagine another 2 weeks especially if they end up saying NO!
Anyways sorry I havent posted much. Homeschooling has kept me SO busy! I only have a few minutes to post this then Micah needs to get a book read and then I need to get a shower and get the house cleaned up (again) Dishes, laundry and the beds are made and done but I still need to vaccum and sweep (its only been 20 hrs since I did them last but it looks like a week) Anyways I will try to get some cards posted by this weekend. later
