New Year Means New Goals

Wow, it’s 2013 already. This is my first ever blog post and it is something I have always wanted to do. Since this is my first post, I want to introduce myself.

My name is Amanda and I am a wife and stay at home mom to three beautiful children. J is 12 and was adopted (that is a long, detailed story for another time). He is a “special needs” kid with ADHD and FAS. Right now he is in the public school, but wants to be homeschooled next year. G is the “first born” boy…but you would never know some days. He is 4 and in Pre-K. I am homeschooling him after he “dropped out” of the Pre-K class he was in. I am still trying to figure out what happened to make him not like it, but love that I get to teach him the way I want! A is the baby and 19 months old. She is the princess of the family and knows it!! Her brothers and daddy spoil her like there was no tomorrow.

We are the typical American family and learning as we go. I have no idea about homeschooling, but learning a lot from Pintrest 🙂 and the other blogs I have been following, and loving!! I am also learning about budgeting, with only one income and a family of 5, I need to do something!! Along with those goals, I also want to plan and cook more healthy meals and get back into shape!!

I hope this blog of mine will be an all over (topics) blog, with me just telling it like it is everyday. I am not perfect, I don’t have the perfect house…not by a long shot, and as much as I love my children and husband, they are not perfect either, but that is why I love them!!

Thank you to everyone who is reading this first ever post, and I hope to figure out a schedule (another goal) and keep my posts coming to you!

Amanda

    1. We homeschooled and graduated our oldest who had ADHD. It was easier for him to learn at home where he could move whenever he needed.
