Little Letters, April 2017

Hello Friday!

We are wrapping up our spring break this weekend and I have to say, it lived up to all the hype and was so worth the wait. The weather and sunshine this week were beautiful and something we would have completely missed out on if we had taken our break when we originally planned to. Everything really worked out for the best.

This week I am sharing another edition of my monthly โ€˜Little Lettersโ€™ where I write notes to divulge all the randomness that is currently going on inside my head. 

Dear School Year,

Where in the world did you go?! In 3 weeks we will wrap up our 4th year of home school and I will officially have a 1st grader and a 4th grader. This can not be possible. Have I really been “at it” for this long?! My girls are growing up entirely too fast, this is not okay.

Dear Donut Run,

Why is it that the day after I mentioned not wanting to pay for any races,  heard about you. The idea of running and eating donuts simultaneously does seem a bit… crazy ๐Ÿ™„  ( simply put ). But, it’s on my donut & running loving daughters birthday and she is totally convinced it is the perfect way to celebrate. I think I am going to have to give in and register us.  

Dear House,

Please sale quickly. I think you are charming, full of character, and fantastic. I really pray that someone else will love you just as much and that our idea to ‘For Sale By Owner’ works out perfectly.

Dear Placement Tests,

I feel pretty confident that my girls kicked your bottom this year. But when the hardest math question on Marissa’s test was 72/8 and the kid is doing long division for fractions it seems kind of obvious that she’ll do well. I was honestly super disappointed that, that was the hardest thing they expect 3rd graders to know.

Dear Husband,

I missed you so much while you were gone last weekend. I tried to stay super busy (aka distracted) but goodness the nights were long and boring without you. 

Dear Beauty and the Beast,

You were beautiful. Watching you with Anna felt like we were having one big sing along and I loved it. I tried to explain to the girls that Beauty and the Beast was my Frozen and they seemed to understand. Also Belle’s dress in the last scene?!?!?! I am still swooning. 

Dear Neighbor,

You wash your car like every 3 days…. seriously?! I have no idea if I am impressed or if I just think you are flat-out crazy.

P.S. Next time can you wash mine too?

Dear Squats,

I hate you. You know you did it right (or very, very wrong) when your legs are sore to the touch. 

Dear 16 Kindergartners,

There were 16 of you last Friday… you clearly won. I have really loved teaching the kindergarten class at co-op this year. But I am THRILLED that next Friday is our last meeting of the year. Having our Fridays back over the summer is always so nice. However, I may be slightly out of my mind. I signed up to teach the kindergarten class again next year and I won’t even have a kindergartner. What in the world was I thinking?!

Dear Home School Curriculum,

I am so thankful for the freedom and ability to home-school but goodness the older my kids get the more it costs! I could EASILY spend at least $400 on curriculum and books this year  ๐Ÿ˜ฏ . You can’t put a price on a good education though… or can you  ๐Ÿ˜• .

Love,

Have a great weekend friends!
Weโ€™ll see you back here on Monday.

Linking up with Taz and Belly for Little Letters.

  • Jessica

    Yay for spring break! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed yourself. Have a great Easter weekend!

    • We certainly had the best time! I can’t believe we hit the books again tomorrow!

  • Amy Smith

    So glad that you girls have had the best week!

    • Thanks Amy. Tomorrow might be the longest Monday EVER!

  • Lizzie Simantz

    That donut run does sound pretty fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t believe your school year is almost over! That’s awesome and sad at the same time. I really hope your house sells fast, that would be such a load off I’m sure!! Have a great weekend!

    • We start back SO early and we really don’t take much time off so we get our 36 weeks in pretty quickly. Or first day was August 7th? So yeah, it’s almost the end and we are SO excited!

  • I sure hope that your house sells quickly! I think it’s totally adorable (from the pictures I have seen on the blog).

    • Thank you SO much! I am hoping to do one more home tour post. Since I had to take photos for when we list it anyways, I might as well!

  • Praying your house sells quickly! I’m so ready for the school year to be over! Bless you for working with Kindergarteners!

    • Thank you Becky! That would be a HUGE blessing and really scary too. But I just hear horror stories of it taking 6,9,12+ months and that would be the worst.

  • I wish your neighbor would wash mine. I am so so bad at keeping it clean!

  • We went to the sing along version of Beauty and the Beast! I think the only difference was that the lyrics were displayed on the screen – I would have sang anyway! lol!

    • That is hilarious. Anna and I were just fine without the lyrics, baha ha! Some things you just never forget.

  • Your books cost about the same as a few college course books, hows that for perspective?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • UGH! I am not sure if that makes me feel better or worse, lol!

  • Hahahaha! Dear neighbor, can you wash my car too? I love it!
    Also. Donut run. YES. Sign up!

    • I mean the genius person that thought of the donut run obviously knew the way to my heart.

  • Whitney Jordan

    Your car washing neighbor needs to start doing some random acts of kindness and wash other’s cars ๐Ÿ™‚ That donut/birthday/race day sounds perfect for you and Marissa. I think you basically have to sign up. Praying your house sells really quickly!!

    • Haha! I think the does too. I certainly wouldn’t complain. I am thinking we have to sign up too. I need to get that done. Thank you friend. I am so excite and SO nervous too. We really want this place to sale FAST!

  • Umm…a donut race is definitely one I think I could buy into!!
