Back to School, Olympics, and New additions

Tonight is a quick post! We had a fantastic day with our first day of home school for the year! WOW do we ever forget so much over the summer! Good thing we started off with a review. Things worked out perfectly as we started around 10:00 AM after a leisure morning and coffee for Mommy and eggs and grits for the children. We were lucky in the fact that Orren slept through all of the instruction time and woke up just as Olivia went into her desk work and one hour of daily reading. So I was able to meet all of his needs without shorting her. Could we dare to dream that this would become our norm? We shall see!
We got our phone call from Mississippi this morning, Kayla is having a baby boy! All looks well and we should have a new addition in time for Christmas. Congratulations!
At this moment I am sitting here with Orren, watching him eat his mashed potatoes and corn with his hands. He refuses to let me help or spoon feed him. He is a big boy and can do it all by himself. It took me three days to figure out that was why he wasn't eating. LOL SO now he makes BIG BOY MESSES!
Joe and Olivia are working the multiplication flash cards to get back in the swing of things. Everyone will soon be off to bed. Mommy and Daddy will be watching the Olympics again.
DID YA'LL SEE THAT SWIM RELAY LAST NIGHT? Oh my goodness! Joe and I were standing up, cheering, and motioning them on. We were so bummed out about the little USA girl coming in second after such an amazing run that this turned the whole night around! We laughed and jumped up and down beaming as if we had done something. Then we turned in and slept, I haven't had such a restful night in a very long time.
So we will post again tomorrow!
