What's Up?!

Ok, a month, really? I know it's wordless Wednesday, but I'm not allowing myself to have it that easy this wednesday!

Anyway, not too much all that exciting has been going on. I've been working on researching home school preschool programs for Ava (which I've been doing for forever it seems). Meanwhile, we've been working on some educational activities. Which, really we've been doing for a while. It seems I've always tried to incorporate educational activities as much as I can. I found a web site that has a list of what most preschools teach, and she pretty much knows and does much of it. We did just start working on scissors and glue(sticks). I think she has inherited my creativeness (if I can call it that), and she does well on computer games (which have taught her an amazing amount of stuff) like her daddy. She also loves to be read to and pretends to read telling a little of her own story, so I hope she will always have that love. I just really hope she loves and does well in math, unlike me. Kevin didn't love it either.

Another big hope for her education is that I can stick with the homeschooling. I've heard and known so many that have done so well having been home schooled. I tell you though, one of my biggest inspirations to really give it a go was the Duggars, you know the million kids family. The mom home schools them all, and I figured if she could manage all of them, I could handle one.

In other news, last week we made a trip to Memphis, mainly because I was craving good barbecue (although I did find another place here I want to try). We ended up on a bit of a wild goose chase for my favorite place, Whole Hog Cafe. When we got there we were met with a very sad sign (for two reasons), reading that they're general manager had passed away. The sign said they closed in January, but I was just on their website and they didn't mention it at all. So, we decided to try their other location (they actually have others in different states also), and it had been closed too, actually the place already for rent. Why they didn't mention that on the other location's sign I don't know. So, needless to say, we ended up going somewhere else, and not barbecue. I felt bad for them, but I was so disappointed.
Oh well, we may have to make a trip to one in Arkansas where they're based sometime. With gas prices as they are, that may be a while.:(
