That's the ticket

We are moved into our transitional home, living with my mom & step-dad. So far living here is much better than expected (and I’m not just saying that since my mom reads here). There have been some bumps along the road, for sure – moving costs at least twice what people think it will, and it’s exponentially more difficult.

We’re starting new routines and trying to settle in, making our spaces ours in small ways. We’ve also been more structured with the homeschooling, and I’m really proud of how the girls have responded! This past week we started a wonderful new spelling program which uses “rimes” (or rhymes) and sequential spelling – so learning thin, then thins, then thinned, then thinning, etc.

BG and MG are really proud of how well they are doing! So today they are holding a spelling bee – there are still tickets and there’s still space for more of an audience! It was originally scheduled for 12:30pm Eastern, but now we’re at 1:15-1:30pm Eastern. so you’ve still got time! :)

I’m feeling really overwhelmed with everything, but there have been a lot of wonderful things this week, and I am aiming for optimistic. My girls are definitely surrounded by love, and that’s a Good Thing!
