March is bringing all the good things. Shamrocks, green stuff, and a good dose of luck. I mean, I am Irish, so it makes sense. This March in particular though, is going to be pretty amazing. I just have a feeling.
We were in Minneapolis for the weekend celebrating my oldest THIRTEENTH birthday. (what!?) And on the way back to South Dakota, the excitement started swelling. I put all the kids to bed early last night and sat down with my planner, planning out my month...prioritizing, making plans, getting organized. This morning I woke up early, went outside for a colder-than-blast run and I it sort of gave me a dose of stamina to take on the tasks ahead.
March is going to be full. March is going to be crazy. But March is going to be awesome. Why?
...because Learning Well.
This ecourse is my baby right now. It's a project I've been cooking up for a long, long time. I am so thankful to Jeanne for helping me with this. The videos from the guest mamas are coming in daily and I'm tearing up watching them. Not because they're sad at all, but they are SO so good and I am so proud to know these mamas. I'm so humbled that they would take the time to record themselves and share their homeschool talents for this course. And I am so very excited for YOU to learn from them. I am working on my videos too, editing, and preparing printables and an awesome class notebook for notes and more!

....because birthday planning.
You know I love me a good party. Little Sissy is turning 7 this month and we're currently deciding on a theme. I've given her till end-of-day to decide so we can get busy. I'm dreaming about last year's Woodland Fairy party and wishing for spring, but we've got some pretty good contenders...it will be good. And what's not to celebrate about SEVEN??!!
You guys, I have a teen. What the what!?! I have NO idea how this happened, but I do and frankly, it's a little freaky, but I'm going to look at the good points....like 1. adult conversations//not just about the reasons why brushing your teeth is beneficial and discussing why Forest Gump is an awesome movie. 2. a babysitter//I mean, this is totally selfish, but hello! He's a teenager now, no reason why big bro can't babysit! :) 3. maturity//I know, I know...not like super mature yet, but he's getting there...he's becoming an adult and I can see it. It's pretty cool, actually.
....because a house!!!
That's right!! We found a house, the inspection is done, and we are closing on the 31st!! You know how people say they just walk in and know? Well, I knew. I knew on our last house too. I can reconciled with myself that this house hunt had turned so ugly and desperate that we were either going to end up renting or buying a house that was just so-so and would live with it just because. This isn't like that. I love it. I love the lot, love the interior, the exterior...all of it. There's of course little things to do like painting and such, but mostly we are going to move in and live in it. We'll save projects for summer or later, but for now we are just looking forward to living under one roof with unpacked boxes and getting to know our new city. From what I can tell, we will be near a new library, lakes, and trails. And yes, I am so excited.
March, so far, I love you. You hold so much right now!
