We are still here!

The TLH Huffs are still here! Life has just kept us all so busy the past few months. Summer flew by so fast we didn't get to do so many things we had planned. But "it is what it is." One of my new mantras.

Hannah enjoyed a month with her Grandma in Detroit. I was sad to see her go, but sooo happy that she was able to have some quality time with her Grandma. Unfortunately, my Grandma Dear is not well and now needs 24h care. Hopefully, I will be able to go spend a few days with her next week. Since we are homeschooling again this year, the plan is to go visit at least once a month. It will given my Aunt & Uncle a break and give me some time with My Dear.

Yes, you heard correctly! It is official. The TLH Huffs have truly realized now that the public school system is just NOT for us. Sarah is starting Kindergarten and Hannah the 4th HOME! We've been doing "a little of this & a little of that" since Monday. Yet, the official first day is September 6th! We are all excited and making plans for field trips, science projects, and arts/crafts. This week we learned a little about symbols and Florida history. So, the girls each had to draw a symbol for our "school." Will have to scan & post them later.

This week has been a busy busy one. The girls started another season of dance. It is Hannah's 7th & Sarah's 3rd. My Banana is now a member of the company...ABT Prepatory Level. The Performing Arts Center of Tallahassee is one of the two schools certified in the state of Florida. Hannah will be doing 7hrs of instruction a week (in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, & Acro/Tumbling), one hour of assisting a teacher with the little ones a week, and 2hrs of performance rehearsal a week. A busy bee she will be! Sarah is in her last year at the primary level & taking a Ballet/Tap class.

We ALL will be busy. I'll be too busy to tackle those last three courses to finish my BSN degree. New goal is to be done by Fall 2012. Still undecided about Midwifery school. Still patiently awaiting some sign. Well why I'm waiting, I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a contributing writer for a birth blog...The Mahogany Way Birth Cafe. The plan is to write one post a month. I'm really excited about this!

We are all excited about where life is taking us!

Glad you are back! I, too, struggle with the public school system. You inspire me with your dedication to home schooling. Ava went back to dance this year too and this is Caroline's first year in the company. Here's to a great dance year!!

One of the best things about homeschooling for me is that we can take off when we need to or want to and visit friends and family
