June 7, 2013

hello summer!Whew! We survived another year of homeschooling. Oh me oh my, hurray!!! I got my undergrad degree in Child and Adolescent Development and then went on to get my California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, taught in a public school, but somehow being the teacher to your own children is a whole different ball game. It’s definitely more challenging! Though when I look at what they’ve learned and accomplish this past year, I’m so proud to be part of all that.

This week’s learned, link, and thankfulness…

Homeschool year 2 done and now we’ve got a 1st & 2nd grader! Woot! Woot!

I have various projects piling up, so though school’s done, it will be a busy June!

Love my t-bar clogs from Lotta. I’ve been wearing them everyday this week.

If you’re wear a size 7 shoe, don’t miss out on these vintage beauties!

I am more sane when I get quiet prayer times, so thankful for those moments to pray. I need it.

Tomorrow’s a special day for Ben and me. It’s the day I became his girlfriend and we’ve been together for 11 years now! I really should finish writing up our love story. How he asked me to be his girlfriend is a seriously good story. Well, at least it is to me.

We are VERY excited about last night’s San Antonio Spurs steal in Miami! Ben and I were on such a high after the game last night and I kept watching replays of this play this morning. Tony Parker is amazing and I think he looks like Ben. Our house will be full of craziness for the next week and a half until the NBA championship is settled. Go Spurs go! #beattheheat #3moregames

It’s Friday. School’s done. Spurs took game 1. June 8 makes 11 years. Game 2 is on Sunday (so nervous!). I think this weekend is starting off great! Woot! Woot!

    Please please please finish your love story! I really enjoyed following along and was sad when the posts stalled.
    From a fan down under who’s still waiting to be someone’s girlfriend…! xx

      I’ll try to get working on that soon. Just keep being patient and “the one” will come along!

  • Yes, I love stories! And I love your blog. The photos are gorgeous and you are always going on the cutest adventures with your family 🙂

    Your family is beautiful and I so enjoy the posts! Just had to fess up that I ordered the T Strap clogs, so im so glad to hear theyre comfy. (and im in San Clemente so the chances of rocking them in the same place are less;))
    Have a wonderful summer,

    I’ll have to say I’m sad that Miami Heats arrived to Finals but I’m glad that Spurs got the first game! And I was thinking how Parker really do look like your husband (or is it the other way?)

    • mycakies says:

      I think Parker looks like my husband because Ben’s about 10 years older, so he’s the original mold. 😉

  • I’m so happy for you and Ben!

    Your obsession with Lotta is slowly but surely becoming my obsession and I really, really, really want to get some clogs! We’re going into Winter here so it might not be the smartest idea but I think, for those shoes, I’ll brave the elements 😉

    Congratulations on the home schooling success! 🙂

    would you ever share your homeschool curriculum and philosophy choices? i am a mama who homeschooled for kindegarten and loved it but it was super hard. and i want to keep at it but the teaching my girl to read was gruelling at times. any hints on what worked for you folks i would absolutley love to hear!

    • mycakies says:

      I think the curriculum I used made it better for me. I was deathly afraid of teaching reading. I taught 4th grade in a public school and I loved that grade because they already knew how to read and we just get to focus on comprehension and critical thinking skills. I will have a homeschool post coming this coming week or next! So stay tuned!
