pardtx0tx959tx1918tx2877tx3836tx4795tx5754tx6713tx7672tx8631f1fs20 So much has happened, I don’t know where to start. First, I’d like to say I have been chosen to be the editor of the homeschool section of an online newsletter. My first article will come out in Oct. I’m very excited. I’ve never been an editor of anything.
par
I have been doing alot of frugal research. What I mean is, I’m going to start learning more about couponing, ad matching, etc. I’ve read a great book that Ive had in my bookcase for about 3 yrs, that I never got around to reading. She is known as the coupon queen. I love her witty advice. Ive even learned what you can do with those soap bars when they get down to nothing. You can take them and put them in a potpourri crock pot with some water and let it simmer and your house will smell like a babies bottom. Ha!
par
Oops, I think I hear an argument stirring between the boys. Gotta go check it out. Be right back. Yep, just as I suspected. This time they couldnt handle it on their own. (I try not to intervene right away, cause I want to see how they will try to work it out). It lead to Dallas hitting Dakota and that has never been allowed in our home. Our boys have never been allowed to hit one another or call one another names. They get heavily punished if this happens. Usually, I stop the argument and we settle it before it gets out of hand.Dallas has to learn to control his temper. He gets upset really quick and doesnt know how to handle it.Dakota really does try to settle the arguments.
par
Dallas is doing really good in school. When reading, he still has trouble saying his L’s and R’s correctly. He’s getting better with his L’s especially when he slows down and thinks about it. If he gets fast he relapses and forgets. His handwriting is to die for. I love it. Dakota is the one I have to stay on about his penmanship. I do not tolerate sloppy work. I will make him do it again. He has improved in his writing. I reward them with marbles. Each marble is worth .25 cents. My kids will do anything with money. Call it bribing if you want. But when they do bad or make a bad grade, they owe me .25 cents. I think that is a fair deal. Hey, just because we homeschool doesnt mean I give them the answers.
par
Dakota has made a few bad grades the past couple of days. He is going to have to pick up they pace cause he doesnt like having his phone taken away. He doesnt talk on the phone or text message, its just that it his his only prized posession because Daddy got it for him and he loves it and takes care of it. Dallas has had trouble the past few days and gotten frustrated. They are doing something different in school and he doesnt adjust to change well sometimes. So, Ive had to slow down and help him with this adjustment. I know my kids better than anyone, thats why Im here to help.
par
We have gotten alot of projects done and reports. Working on the next ones now. When we get Dakota science project completed, I will take a picture of it and post it. Dallas wants to do one too. So Ill post his too. Were having to wait for dry weather so we can collect the rest of our things for the poster.
par
He will now do a History project on a country of his choice. He chose Japan since David went to Okinawa, Japan when he was in the Marines and PaPa was in WWII when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. I think he will do really good. Dakota has been having to help me with Roman Numerals in Arithmetic and Prime Factoring. He has speed drills that he does in Arith. and Reading. He gets so nervous when you turn on the clock. He doesnt like to be rushed when thinking. He has to learn to calm down and concentrate on thinking and not the ‘tick tock’ of the clock. This is something else we have to work on. I am very proud of them they do try and I see this in them. I hate however to see them struggle. But if they learn it now, theyll be better off.  Dallas has a little trouble with his long and short vowels when applying them to reading. Hes getting better though. Dakota had to learn several verses in Bible and he got a B cause I had to help him a few time. Dallas learned John 3 14-19 and got an A.
par
Dallas enjoys coloring more and more. I think hes gonna be the artist. Dakota is the hard worker as  far a actual labor goes. He want let me tote anything heavy, well I cant and he knows this and he tries to help and be the man while Daddy’s gone.
par
Dakota is doing really well in football. He finally got to run the ball in last nights game. The coaches son has been getting all the glory and stealing the show until he got hurt, now its someone elses turn. I dont mean for that to sound ugly, but its true. Dakota made a touch down last night and guess who cheered the most. Yep! ME!!!!!! I was so proud. He drug a few boys a few yards that were hanging onto his feet. Ha! Im having to video tape for Daddy since hes out of town so he can see them when he gets back in. Hes in Texas right now, near you Cindy.  He hates being away from us. But work was slow in our neck of the woods and he had to go out. I support what ever he does.
par
Susie has been doing well at the trainer. Ms. Linda said its as if nothing ever happened to her. She gets to compete this weekend and we are going to try to go see her in action and video tape for David. We might mess the first run because they have it early in the morning and we have chores to get done here first and then Dakota has practice for a couple of hrs Saturday. We will see her evening run. We stopped by to see her one day last week, but I think it might have upset her cause she thought we were coming to bring her home. I felt so sorry for her. After a couple of weeks and trial runs she will get to come back home and then it will be Dixies next set of training.
par
I have added alot of things to my side bar because Im promoting other peoples website that I really enjoy. One is Freebies 4 Mom. I love this website. I have gotten so many free things in the mail. Some all you have to do is sign up to receive a newletter by email or just answer a survey question or two. It simple. I also love Mom Advice. They have alot of tips on how to save money and where to find the best deals. I also promote alot of good homeschool references. Feel free to click on any of them and just surf til your hearts content. They will enjoy you stopping by. We all share tips and suggestions and share concerns to help one another out.
par
This set in rain has really taken a toll on my body. I have gotten really stiff and sore and  my arms hurt alot. You can forget lifting anything. I really dont want to go get any steroid shots, I havent had to in a long time, about 2 yrs now. But if this doesnt let up, I may have to.
par
My Buffs are getting so big now. It want be long I can let them out of the hutch. David wants to build another coop when he gets back home to house just the Buffs, so they dont inter breed with my other ones. We want to keep a pure breed in the Buffs. Sassy didnt get to hatch the eggs she was sitting on. Everytime she left the nest to get something to eat or drink a chicken would come in and peck them open. Shes back to her old self again and splashing in the mud puddles. She is just too funny to watch. This spring I will have some farm ducks. I will try to find her a boyfriend too.
par
The girls are doing fine. Ive got a man from church going to bring me a buck rag so I can get them use to the smell and get them ready for breeding season. I dont know if I will breed Tasha so soon or not. Shes not even a year old. I will just have to see. Me and her still fight over Tishas milk. Ha!
par
Chey, Dakotas calico has blessed us with 5 more kittens. I swear 3 of them look like Simese or little possums one. They are just too cute.
par
I just thought of a funny thought I could leave you with. The other day Dallas called me a  "Big Girl". Now I dont know if he meant big like mature or he meant a BIG GIRL> Ill have to think about that one. Ha!
par
Hope everyone enjoys their days that God gives you without complaining.

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.
