Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

So we had our second Muffin Tin Monday (really Wednesday, because I work on Mondays).  The first I didn't get pictures of, but today I did!

We had mango slices, chocolate chip cookies, Toy Story cheese crackers, some fruit salad (melon, pineapple and strawberries) and some dried apples and strawberries.

They gobbled it up in no time, and were thrilled to eat out of their special "dishes"  I found pirate and monkey cupcake liners in the grocery store, and picked up the silicone feet cups in Marshalls.

So, it's official.  I'm a homeschooler!

After lots of praying and debating, we're headed full steam ahead into homeschool for preschool this year.  We've decided to use the Letter of the Week program from Confessions of a Homeschooler for the most part, with some Raising Rock Stars Preschool from 1+1+1=1.

I'm in the process right now of going through everything, and figuring our schedule etc.  The plan is to start on Tuesday.  We're going with a 4 day week (Tuesday - Friday) due to my work schedule.

I'm also making a list of some things I need to pick up while I'm out and about.  Like I need an excuse to go to Michaels and shop? :D

I'm getting anxious about the big goobers and school too.  They start on Sept 7th, and I still haven't heard whether Sweet Nut is going to AM or PM K, and who the boys got for teachers.  I can't go school shopping because, for Spawn anyways, the supply list is teacher specific.  I guess I'll be calling the school on Monday morning to see when they are going to inform me of my kids teachers and school info.  I'm still waiting to hear when the K bus run and orientation is going to be.  It's usually in August.

Sigh.  At least I know that Cute Boy is pretty much ready to go.  I can't wait to start on Tuesday!
