It's taken me quite a few posts to catch up this time. I've probably forgotten some things that I wanted to post, but I think I did pretty good:). We've been working hard at homeschooling. Our goal is to be done sometime in the next 2 and a half weeks. I'll keep working with Kiersten through the summer. Her reading is coming along really well and this will help her to start 1st grade with more confidence. Caleb has come a long way with his reading and I think 3rd grade will be his independent year. He likes me to read his directions with him, but I've seen him reading when he thinks I'm busy.
Other than that we are getting ready for the new baby chicks and trees. Cleaning up the barn and property usually takes quite a bit of work, but it's worth it. Scott will be seeding for Alan Japp over the next couple weeks. That means the kids will have a few more responsibilities around here. They're used to that happening at the end of winter though.
Elyssia is super excited to ride a horse this weekend:). We're looking at the possibility of having her take horse riding lessons a couple times a month. We know a place that offers lessons at a very affordable price. We just need to see if there are any openings. Looking forward to a busy spring and summer!
