I have made my decision.

I have finally made a decision that I resisted making for a good bit of time, but now feel pretty confident about. 

I will NOT homeschool next year. 



If you read my post about my PROs & CONs of Homeschooling you'll see that I was already grappling with this particular choice. 

It was a difficult conclusion to come to because Elena going back to school means that I will need to also enroll Allee. This of course means that I will need to start working full time again to be able to afford tuition. 



I just hope it isn't too high

I could send my girls to public school, but Hubby and I are pretty set on skipping that particular option. At least for the elementary years. Things could change in middle & high school. Who knows. Never say never. Right?

Now my dilemma is what to do for work. I am hoping I don't have to work retail again. That was awful, but I will do it if needed. I also managed a restaurant. That was fun, but very pressure filled. I really have no clue what I will do. I have a pretty full summer ahead of me and I worry that the Fall will arrive and I won't have any decent leads. Ugh. So stressful. 



I am feeling a lot of pressure to figure things out at the moment. I know that it will work itself out the way it needs to eventually, but the unknown is awful. I just wish I could get a good job and KNOW that my girls will be able to stay in their school without us having to withdraw them after a year because of money. Ya know? My husband is a hard worker and takes care of all other bills with his job. I really want to be of reliable help in this area.  

So yeah, that's where I am at currently. I hope that I can get the ball rolling soon with enrollment. Wish me luck! 

XOXO, 

Maria

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
