Hi everybody, just wanted to introduce myself and my family. My name is Amber and I have 3 amazing little girls who are 9, 6, and 4. My husband works in the oilfield in west Texas, so we don't get to see him much right now. My oldest 2 were going to public school, but after many many problems and lots of prayer I decided to homeschool them. ODD is gifted in pretty much all areas which keeps me on my toes. MDD is also very smart and has a speech problem. Although she's been doing well over the last couple of years that she's been in Speech Therapy so I'm confident that even though she's not receiving that service any more that she'll continue to improve. YDD is in pre-school right now and loving it. She has epilepsy, but is doing very well. She's also a smarty pants.
Due to circumstances, I had to pull the older 2 out a couple of weeks earlier than I originally thought so I was very unprepared. I think we're starting to get into our groove, though. I decided to wait until after the holidays to buy curriculum. Partly because of the expense and partly because I want to get to know them from a teacher's viewpoint so that hopefully when I do buy curriculum it'll be the right one for each of them. Ummm......what else? I babysit a todder on Mondays and my infant nephew 4-5 days a week. I've been doing BSF (Bible study for those who don't know), but I'm currently having trouble finding childcare to watch the big ones Wednesday mornings. Maybe there's another mom on here who would be willing to trade babysitting?? Oh and we live in the South Valley (not a bad neighborhood, though). I guess that's it. Anything else you want to know, just ask. I'll warn you, I tend to babble. I don't get out much! lol
Hope I did that right....
