Of course I grabbed them thinking I could let the kids plant them for a home-school project the week of St Patrick's Day.
Well they didn't last.
The kids found them, and begged all day for me to let them go ahead and plant them.
They won. So today we planted clover.
Oh my, it was nice!
It made me think of spring!!
fingers in dirt...
I can't wait.
Only 22 days until Spring!!!!!

Welcome back to my blog! Today I am doing a fun little weekend link up with mercy found ministries .Sharing this week's High, Low, and Lesson learned. We would love for you to join!
My Week In Review
This week there are two high's that I can think of right away. Both of them from Wednesday. Number one was getting what should be our last homestudy visit done! It seems like we have been waiting forever and it just feels good to know another step is done.
The second one was my hubby getting a much needed new car. His broke down probably about a month ago now, and it's no fun having one family vehicle. We got a 96 Ford Taurus wagon. And the funny thing is, even though it's probably considered an old person car, we love it. Lots of room for the kids....
My low for the week actually happens later today. I have to take me son to the doctors. Turns out he isn't growing very well. He isn't even on the chart for his height! Neither one of us is looking forward to going, but it will be nice to get started on finding out what's going on. If you could keep in your prayers that would be great! Another low part, is that right around the time of his appointment we are supposed to be getting some snow and ice. Fun, fun.
And all that my eyes desired I did not refuse them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, for my heart was pleased because of all my labor and this was my reward for all my labor. Thus I considered all my activities which my hands had done and the labor which I had exerted, and behold all was vanity and striving after wind and there was no profit under the sun.
This week I learned for the second time, that my hubby and I have changed in how we look at prospective cars. Before we would look for a pretty color, cool car, leather seats....Now we look for how much room it has for the kids stuff, if it get good gas mileage, and is it a good price? I think we may be growing up!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

This week has also been busy with babysitting, schoolwork, and playing with all of Alex's new science stuff he got for his birthday. Which includes a new microscope. Lots of fun! I love how with homeschooling, you can expand on the subject your child enjoys most. We have done so much science stuff this year, most of which if he was in public school he would have missed out on. Our next goal is to dissect a shark! I'm going to let the hubby lead that one though.
Don't forget to check out this awesome weekend blog hop I'm linking up with today!

There's also more good news! I finally got a new laptop! That means I can hopefully get this blog having posts more often. There has been some major slacking on it lately. I want to start participating in some weekly link-ups, and have regular weekly posts on homeschooling, and adoption. So we will see where it goes...
Well I need to get cleaning! Hope you have a great day!!!

I know I have been bad about posting this week. But my laptop is down. And blogging from my phone is kind of a pain....
But wanted to give you guys a quick update. Today was supossed to be the long awaited, last homevisit. But our social worker emailed me a few days ago, and it was cancelled. I was nervous it may take awhile to get it rescheduled. But, it's done! Yay! The homevisit will now be Wednesday the 20th. And hopefully (pray hard) not long after, we will be homestudy ready. Something we have dreamed about since last April when we first signed on with the agency.
Also I'm hoping to post in the next few days, a post linking up with Compassion International. So keep checking back!

This morning before we started our schoolwork, the kids started filling out their valentines to hand out to all their church buddies. They had so much fun. I just love this time of year. All the pink and red, the hearts, and of course the romantic gifts from my hubby! This year we are also going to go to a romantic valentines day dinner at our church. So excited! And I hope my husband wins the most romantic man award. :) What are your valentines day plans? I would love to hear them!

That's what's going on at our house. We have some major headcolds, and chest colds going around. Looks like today is going to start with taking my little boy to the doctor. Ever since he was little he seems to catch pneumonia very easily. So off to the doc we go. Sorry about the lack of interesting posts lately. My laptop crashed and I have just been doing a few quick and easy posts via my cell phone. Hopefully this week coming I wil get some new pics up! We'll that's all for now. Hope you have a great weekend!
