Sorry, AGAIN, for my absence..

It has been quite a month here at the Simpson home.  I was without a computer for a little over a week, but luckily I got exactly the laptop I wanted for $100 LESS than what I was planning on paying!  So I’m all set up now and back online, though I have not been on much due to plenty of cleaning/organizing projects, school, new curriculum and planning, etc.  I have been making an effort to spend less time on the net in an effort to get more done in “real life”. 
We have once again re-structured our curriculum and schooling, which I plan on highlighting in a post in the near future.  In a nutshell, new curriculum, a new approach, and a different way of planning and prepping has made a HUGE difference in enabling us to get things done.  Which means, hopefully we can begin to catch up on a few things we have fallen behind in.  It is going well and I can’t wait to share with you how a few changes have helped us to stay on task and get focused.
The kids are are doing well and we are eagerly awaiting the return of spring and nice weather.  We are all getting a bit of cabin fever, but I hate to bundle everyone up and get out and about unless necessary.  Cold weather is NOT my friend! 
Joey is now cruising and pulling up onto everything, which makes for some nervous mommy moments.  But I know I have to let him test the waters and try new things, even if he might get hurt.  He has had a few bumps and falls, but nothing major.  I’m sure that will get worse in the coming months, as he seems eager to get walking.  We are guessing he will be toddling around by his birthday in May.  He also has learned to clap his own hands this past week, which we thoroughly enjoy!  All we have to do is say, “Yay! Joey!”, and he smiles a big grin and claps!  It’s heart-melting!  He has also learned to say “no-no-no”, but it’s more like “nah, nah, nah”.  Hmmm, wonder where he picked that up?……
Anyhow, I wanted to give a quick update to let everyone know we are still here and doing well and I hope to be posting regularly again very soon!  Til then……
