Meet My *Students*

This week Heart of the Matter {Online} is hosting a blog hop for us to share photos of our children...and *students*. I couldn't resist jumping in because I love to talk about my awesome kiddos!
This is The Princess. She is 7 and will be starting 2nd grade this school year. It's hard to believe that we've been homeschooling her (officially) since she was 4. She loves reading and isn't too fond of math (I'm hoping to change that this year); she adores animals and is so happy to finally have a pet mouse; she loves to swim and ride her bike. She is my sensitive child with the tender heart; my little preemie who came at 32 weeks (she tried at 28 weeks), so tiny and precious. I love her so much, she is such a blessing to us.

Meet Mr. B. He is 5 and is starting K5 this year. He's very excited about that, too! He has done preschool work along the way, but can't wait to start in all of his new books. He loves Legos, Toy Story, Star Wars and books; he adores anything with action as he is full to overflowing with energy; he also loves swimming and riding his bike. He is a very vivacious, charming little fellow (and it's a good thing for this very mischievous boy!). For all of his boyishness, he is a very loving, sweet boy who loves to snuggle with his mama. He makes me laugh every day~I love this little guy!

And here is Dad & Mom (aka: Vince and Lora). We've been married over 13 years now and are loving parenthood. I am the primary teacher of our school lessons, but Vince is very much involved as well. He has to be since he works from home, right? :) I love having him around as he is so supportive and is also a wonderful teacher to our children in so many ways.

Thanks for dropping by to *meet* the fam!

What a beautiful family! You look familiar, I must have seen you somewhere online before. ;-)
Many blessings on your homeschool year! What are you using for math with your daughter?

I LOVED Math-u-see, but one of my son's hated it, he really likes the colorful pages they use in public school (Houghton Mifflin).

I went with Singapore this year for the colored pages, without having actually seen it in person, but after trying it a wee bit, I don't like it. Hopefully though it'll work well for them.
