1. School is on MY schedule!! If we wake up late one morning, it doesn't mean we're running late for school! We just start whenever we meander up to the 'school area'.
2. It only takes a couple hours on most days.
3. It's wonderful to actually get to SEE Ty learn something! He gets so excited and just to see his eyes light up and be proud of himself is so worth it.
4. Our curriculum thus far is perfect for me. The K12 curriculum we use is so easy! It literally takes you step by step on what you should say/do. I will be the first one to tell you I'm not a teacher by any stretch, but I can do this!
I think the biggest and maybe only one I've seen thus far is patience(or lack thereof). It is so hard to be patient with Ty when he's running all over, laying on the floor, not focusing etc. Those are the moments I have to take a step back and ask myself if we need to take a break. (I'm a 'once we start, I don't want to stop til we're done kinda girl', but I'm finding that Ty(and most 5 year olds I know) don't operate like that). I know it's all part of God's plan to work on my patience ;-) it's working!!!!
I've been training again with my awesome personal trainer, Lenette. I'm so excited to get back in the swing of things. I always feel so much better when I'm working out/exercising/training. The eating part is slowwwwllllyyyy getting back in order too ;-)
Rylan had her 6 month checkup this week and I'm proud to announce she is actually in the 50th percentile now for height(she was the 5th!) and 10th percentile for weight(that also use to be the 5th). Dr. Ryan said she's growing and healthy so we're so thankful to God!!!
I've written about everyone else so I better include Tom in this post since this is the "tomkellyty(still gotta add Rylan) blog ;-)
Tom is doing well. He's been the BEST helper with Rylan while I teach Ty!!! I honestly don't know how I would do it if he wasn't helping. So thankful for all the hard work he does. This homeschooling thing (and my stress level lol) can make me one cranky Momma, but he's a trooper :-)
We had Rylan's 6 month pictures taken recently so I thought I'd share a few from the session. If you're looking for a wonderful photographer, call Katie Carter(aka Blackbird Photography).
FYI-Tom and I weren't going to be in the pictures, but last second were told to pose hence the way I look lol
Tata for now and thanks for reading!
