Random 5 on Friday ~ March 20th, 2015

1.  We got a new van!  We had a car and an SUV, with the SUV being our primary family vehicle.  When baby #4 came along this year, the SUV became a tight squeeze with the additional car seat.  We wanted something roomier.  So the car, which we had officially outgrown (it was a tight squeeze with just the three kids anyway) was traded in for a van.  I wasn't sure how well I would like a van, but it's definitely roomier, it's got some nice features that I wasn't expecting, and so far I'm liking it.


2.  Eloise is getting so big so fast!  She rolled over at only 8 weeks old!  She didn't just accidentally kick herself over onto her back though, she actually rolled from back to belly.  I didn't think she'd get over her shoulder, but she worked hard and did it several times!  Oh, and she weighed in at 9 lbs 2 oz at her two month well-baby.  She is "petite" like her siblings, but pediatrician says she looks great.  This is after she rolled over the third or fourth time.  She's got that look of triumph "What's next, mom!?"





3.  Elliott found the golf channel and just kept watching.  For days.  Of course he decided he wants to learn to play.  I'm not sure what the fascination is.  We're always open to letting the kids try new things though, so we searched around to find someone to give him lessons, because we don't play.  It should be interesting!


4.  So in our homeschool . . . we are still doing FIAR and enjoying it!  The boys love coming up with the next topic and seeing which book I'll choose for them.  Look for our Mike Mulligan row to post soon.  Their next two requests were gorillas and insects, so we shall see where it takes us!  As far as reviews--I just posted GPALOVEMATH and we have a few more in the works including New American Cursive for Elliott, La La Logic for Emory, and ARTistic Pursuits for both boys!  Eleanor, well she's a two year old tag-along, jumping in with a great big "MY TURN" and wandering off when she's done.

5.  It's the time of the year where the husband and I are itching to plan our vacations!  We usually travel to Georgia in May to visit my family and to the beach in September, with little weekend trips sprinkled throughout.  We have some different things in mind for this year that should really excite our kiddos!  I'll share more when it's concrete, but for now I'm getting excited!

  1. Congrats on the van! We'll be upgrading our PT Cruiser to a van soon, too. So cool about your son finding something he's really interested in and you guys being flexible enough to encourage him in that. It'll be neat to find out how his golf lessons go :). We're planning a big vacation in our family too - we'll be going to Canada the last week of April. It'll be the first time the boys have been out of the country. Now we just have to hope our passports arrive in time, otherwise we'll be spending a few days in Seattle instead. Thanks for sharing this post, Brittney :)
