We went to the Zoo!!

Whew!! we went to the zoo today it was so much fun, I really enjoyed watching my little one get so excited about all the animals.. and excited he was.. I think he led the way the whole time.. I brought a stroller for him to ride in and most of the time just ended up pushing an empty stroller.. but it was really fun even my teen had fun and enjoyed it.

I always love going to the zoo there seems to always be so much to see and do that you can go over and over but it never gets old. And theres always something for everyone. I can go and spend all day there.. but have to say, my most favorite place to visit is the Polar Bears.. specially when they are playing in the water, today they were napping in the sun that didn't want to come out.. My littlest one really enjoyed the giraffes and the penguins.... oh and then there's the cotton candy grandma bought for him.. I think he really really enjoyed that :o)

well, we really had so much fun and I am so glad that we were able to go... well, keep the comments up and please if there is anything you would like to see on my blog, let me know..

well my first blog...

I recently pulled my son back out of public school and started homeschooling him again.. well kinda homeschooling.. he is doing his high school through a web academy. So far he is doing well. I really like this program because it is very flexible and mostly feel like I have complete control over his schooling.. though it is considered public school..

as for my youngest, he is only 4yrs, we haven't started anything heavy.. we mostly play.. alot of music and make believe.. he has the most wonderful imagination and I am so happy for that. I did just purchase a preschool workbook and we will start that next week. its only supposed to be 30 minutes a day. we will see how that goes. I have been in the process of having him evaluated. It is suspected he has Aspergers/Autism.. I have heard that Aspergers is on the Autism spectrum but I have also heard it is not.. so not sure which it is.. but it is suspected he has one of those.. Another reason I am taking it easy as far as a formal education goes. He is not able to sit for long periods of time and focus on anything for too long.. He also seems to get discouraged pretty easy then just decides he is done... we will see how it goes..

I know he learns things as there are days he just comes up to me an knows all this stuff and its like out of the blue... lol

so, I will try to post regulary and to keep everyone updated. I plan to share my ideas and things I have learned pertaining to homeschooling and special needs and such.. if any of my ideas can help anyone out there thats great..
