pardtx0tx959tx1918tx2877tx3836tx4795tx5754tx6713tx7672tx8631f1fs20 Gosh, it has been another busy week. School started here Tuesday. We didnt start on Monday because we were still waiting on Dallas school books and dvd’s. Dakota did not want to start without him. So I have one in the computer room and one in the living room and there both hollering, "MOM" at the same time. I meet myself walking down the hall way sometimes. No really Dakota is the worst. He hollers for me the most.Ha! Dallas has learned how to sit and pay attention to his teacher and follow directions. They do have the same teacher this year. Ms. Bere. We just love her. A few years after she taught Kindergarten she transferred and started teaching 5th grade. So they now have the same teacher, just in different grades. Its funny to see her on the TV and then come in the computer room and see her a few yrs. later on the computer. Dakota sometimes comes in the living room and sneaks and watches her on Dallas’ classes. Its a hoot sometimes. Me and Dakota fights over whose going to help teach Dallas. He wants Dallas to do his papers with him so bad he cant stand it.The first week was pretty easy. But starting next week, homework starts. Not to mention football season has started and Dakota practices 3 times a week now. Whew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You should see Dallas sitting at his desk doing his school work. He looks so precious. Its like watching Dakota all over again. Hes learning cursive writing this year. Hey. Why not? Dakota has 3 teachers. One is a man in Arithmetic. He likes him and it is something different. Im really enjoying both of them being in school this year. yea, I get tired walking all day, but its fun. I cant wait til Dallas starts learing to read small words. I know, dont rush it. Ill try to contain myself. During a break we have Home Economics class, in which we do a chore in the house. One day it will be vacuuming, the next maybe dusting and so forth. The other day they helped me cut up some carrots we had picked in the garden and helped me fix a roast for supper. Im trying to do things different this year and make it more fun and educational. Dakota will have alot of responsibilities this year in school. I got us a tape recorder so he can tape himself reading and then go back and listen and find his mistakes and see what he can do better. Im afraid hes like his Daddy, their both just not readers. Poor thing maybe hell grow out of it.

Im trying to learn alot about computers cause I need to teach it to Dakota. He is a little far behind in this category and thats my fault. Im going to order me some educational cd’s about the computer from a free homeschool software web site. Also Ive checked out the old faithful, Dummie series for the computer from the library. Boy is my mind spinning right now.Im going to fix up our old laptop for me to use for my school. I have a long way to go though. I went to a friends house today to learn some things. Youd be glad to know. I have graduated to learing how to copy and paste. I can just hear the cheers and applause. Next I promise to learn to put photos on to a blog. Ha! Next Im going to learn to use my movie maker on Windows XP for alot of camcorder movies I have lying around in a box collecting dust. You can download them to your computer and them onto a dvd. Isnt that cool. I have plenty of those.Some go all the way back to when Dakota was a baby. You should see our computer drawer over here full of USB cables that I have no idea what they go to and all these computer gadgets and thing a ma jigs.

My goal this fall and winter is to, develop pictures and get them all into photo albums. I bet I have over a 1000 pictures in two different computers. I have never gotten that far behind on my pictures before, Im so ashamed of myself.
par
We are still working on projects around the house. My garden is still doing fine except for my peas. I have one doe that is out smarting me. Shes eating all of them when I aint lookin! The corn is coming up fine, I will replant alot of stuff again in fall.My potatoes havent come up yet, but they will. When I clean up the barn, I go dump every thing on the garden right then. Its amazing what a little goat poop will do.Ha!
par
Dakota is so excited about football, Dallas really wants toplay. But our league starts at   8 yrs old around here. So right now hes happy watching brother. He asks him now, "Are you gonna crush some heads tonight, Brother?" He is just tooooo funny.
par
Im fixing to start timing the girls estrus cycles so Ill know when to take them to have them bred. I was told that Cocoa will more than likely have twins the first time since she was a twin. I will have so many kids running around here it aint funny. Cocoa just loves to pick on Dallas. She chases after him just so she can butt him. I guess shes finally found someone she can bully. Dallas was outside the fence the other day teasing her and poking his boody up to the fence and shaking it. Just picture it OK! Well he got alittle too close and she still butted him right through the fence and sent him sailing into the sand. It was toooo funny. I told his thats what he gets for teasing her. The turkies are so use to us by now that when I go into the coop, one will absolutely fly up to my shoulder and just sit there. The ducks just QUACK QUACK QUACK all the time. The 4 turkies that got out, I think something got them cause they never came back. Now if a few get out, they will follow me back to the coop and I just open the door  and they go right in. Charolette is getting alot of her feathers back  on her wings and she is looking pretty again. She kills me though when its milking time and she is perched on Tishas milk stand. Tisha just "moves" her right off. She will then get back on the stand and just patiently wait til were through and then get back up there.
par
We have changed our morning routine since we have more chores. We get up in the morning and take care of all the critters and then come in and freshen up and get ready for school and then we have breakfast during Bible class. Were usually started by 8:3o am. Thats good.
par
My mother is doing better. The dr did not put a hard cast on her wrist. He said everything looked fine but it still has some kind of brace on it. She went back to work and people help bring her totes to her for her to put her merchandise away. Daddy has been a good boy and picked up the chores.
par
Just keep her in  your prayers.
par
Well I just looked up at the clock and OH MY GOSH! I gotta get in bed. Church is tomorrow.
par
I will blog more later. Hope everyone has a blessed day in the LORD.

About 4dfarms

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.
