This was Buddy’s first year playing ball. He has always been such a mess, I was genuinely concerned for the safety of the other kids! He’s a happy little fella, and laughs and runs everywhere he goes.
All in all, he did well. He caught some, threw some, and practiced in the back yard until he could hit the ball from the tee quite well!
He had a great first coach, Ms. Jackie. She was so good with all the children. She was full of smiles and hugs.
I have always tried to make sure the kids work hard, are competitive but not prideful, ect. Sometimes it’s a fine line. Especially since it seems we always end up NOT WINNING! We try, and I say things like, “But we have fun right?”
That being said, I am so proud that this year we actually won! 1st place in league, and 1st place in tournament. It was pouring down rain, and all the little girls were screaming and laughing and crying.
I love great memories!
I feel like a lone wolf sometimes. I homeschool, but very rarely (never) find anyone else! I know there must be more homeschooler in northeast Arkansas. Where are the homeschoolers??
I am still fairly new to homeschool, bit getting better all the time. We started out around the 18th of August, with a 3rd grader and a kindergartner. I am excited to report my sweet Annie can already write her numbers to 100! Pretty good for 5 years old, I think. I am mainly picking things from the web, old textbooks, and a multitude of workbooks for them. As they finish each assignment, we hole punch it and put it in their binder. Every day so far, I have them write to 100, and 200 respectively. My K is learning addition and my 3 is learning multiplication. My k is on spelling simple words and writing, while my 3 is reading comprehension and vocabulary.
For extracurricular we do piano, they are in their 3rd year of gymnastics ( I think), and Bible Quiz.
And little Buddy you may ask? He’s 3 now. He doesn’t throw so many fits and tantrums. He is really growing up. He can say his alphabet, count to twenty, knows colors and animals, and practices drums at least 2 or 3 hours a day (no joke!)
So our little family is moving right along. I felt the need to update since I haven’t been on here in forever!

I really enjoyed this blog from a fellow homeschooler. Many bits of wisdom that every mom could learn from. Oh, if I were only able to be a doer and not just a hearer!
