It's Back to School Time!

It's that time of year again - Back-to-School time! Since we are a homeschooling family, we do back to school homeschool style.

We will have our first day of school next Monday - August 4th. Some of the small people are more excited about that fact than others. I think I am the most excited of all of us. The first day of school holds so many possibilities: opportunities to have new beginnings, opportunities to learn new things (for the small people and for me), opportunities for me to correct mistakes I've made with small people in previous years LOL.

We have several beginning of the year traditions that we (or at least I) enjoy.

Wordless Wednesday - Soccer

Last weekend, The Boy played in a 5v5 soccer tournament. This is NOT The Boy, but one of his teammates playing keeper. I just loved how I caught the action of his dive.

National Junk Food Day

Today is National Junk Food Day. I'm the first person to admit - I have a junk food problem. Given a choice between eating something healthy and eating junk, I'll choose junk 95% of the time.

Unfortunately these food choices have had quite a negative impact on my health. In the past 14 years, I have put on a LOT of weight. I used to blame this on having had 5 children, but the youngest is 6 so I no longer have that as an excuse.

In addition to my weight,  my energy level is stinky! By mid-afternoon, I'm ready for the day to be over. Since most of my running around transporting small people to activities happens in the late afternoon and evening, this is a problem.

I've decided to make some changes.

Wordless Wednesday - Theater Camp

Ballerina attended Theater Camp last week. They learned a pirate sword fight performance as well as many other things. She's in the hot pink shirt.

*I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I forgot to take my camera so I only got pics on my phone.

For the past 3 weeks, I've been motivated by a desire to declutter. It started with the smallest girls' room, which was a disaster zone. So I went through and pulled out a TON of clothes and toys.

Then I decided to paint the twins' room. That led to more decluttering of girls' clothes and toys.

Once I got started, I didn't want to stop. I worked on my clothes. I found clothes in my closet that were 3 sizes smaller than what I currently wear! I worked on games and puzzles in the living room. I worked on books in the school room. I worked on kitchen cabinets.

I can't tell you how much better I feel with less clutter in the house. I'm nowhere near finished decluttering the entire house, but the progress I've made already makes me feel less stressed.

Wordless Wednesday - Water Fun

I took the girls to the local splash pad last week. It has a pirate theme and was a lot of fun.
