I'm excited for the upcoming holidays. We are going to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving at my house with family coming here. This would be the first time ever this has happened. I have spent a couple of Thanksgivings home before and I have also done the whole spread before, which I love cooking for Thanksgiving, but family has never come to my house for the holidays. One of my in-laws last visits, we had a mini-Thanksgiving meal, because I love cooking it so much--it was no where close to autumn.

My children have recently all been kind of bad about not using soap when they bathe lately. It's like if they get wet--they have magically been clean. So as Bobo got into his bath tonight, I holler back at him, "Make sure to rub soap all over your body!" Then seconds later I hear him singing--I'm rubbing my peanut, I'm rubbing my peanut. (You probably can guess what he calls his peanut.) It was hard not to burst out laughing.

Bobo started reading this past week. He read his first book, containing 8 pages with few words. We are so proud of him. He read his second little 8 page book the next day. This was just enough to spark my love for home schooling all over again.

I know I'm not organized. Everyone who has gotten to know me, knows this is a huge challenge for me. I'm trying to get the house in better working order before I start school. (I'm still waiting to find out if I'm in, but I'm thinking as if I am in.) Trying to get the garage together. Get the kids rooms more situated along with the school room and all my scrap book stuff. I wish I could just hire someone to come put it all together for me. I'm pretty good once everything has a place. I just stink at finding a place for things to belong.
