We restarted our school year today. I must admit, while I wasn't dreading it, I wasn't super excited for it either. Homeschooling is absolutely the best option for us, for now, for so many reasons, but that doesn't make it easy. Sometimes it's hard to motivate myself even more than it can be hard to motivate the kids. Ya know? It was a good school day, despite my having a bit of a cold coming on. Bummer.
On the upside, we have visited a church twice that we are really enjoying. Didn't expect that process to be so quick, but we were praying that it would be, so we shouldn't be suprised! Also, I found a homeschool mom's night happening at a church in town on Thursday. I'm gonna go, but I'm nervous. And, there are some cool kids classes here on post--a homeschool dance class for Natalie, archery classes and basketball and cheerleading after Christmas. So those are all excited things to look forward to and help us meet some people.
My sewing room is all set up and whirring away. I made a Fall top that I hope to wear tomorrow since the weather will be a bit cooler.
For now, I'll share our new living room with you :) I got the Legos off the floor long enough to vacuum the rug so I snapped some pics while I was at it.
Since we are only here for six months, we didn't want to hang a lot of stuff on the walls, but I didn't want it to look un-homey either, if that's a word. So we hung a few big statement pieces on the walls--our huge map, the window frame and a couple other large things in other rooms. I think they help the place look like home, even without curtains, which I am also not going to bother with. Has anyone else lived in a place temporarily? What are your tips for making it homey, but not making it more work to move out of again?
