Netbooks Abound

They arrived! At about 1:30 pm.
We are so excited! Now the kids are trying to load them!Yikes!

They were so excited they just opened them up and turned them on! I don't know why I didn't think they would do that!

Hannah actually opened the very one she ordered. And so did Ben! Carter and Wes had to trade.

Here they all are with their new netbooks with the designs they picked. The Lord is so good to lead us to homeschool and to love on these kiddos! Praise Jesus!

Guess what?!

Guess What!!

Our netbooks will be here today! Hello Switched On Schoolhouse!

I guess we can start right away.

If anyone is interested in SOS for homeschool please check it out! A sweet lady who works for them wrote and told me how to put a link on here Yay! And Thank you so much!

I am so excited for the older four to have this oppurtunity. I am sure they will feel very important with their little netbooks. We purchased them through Dell. I guess I should leave a link for Dell, but for now, I am just going to say Google it!
Yesterday the book I ordered came! It is called Story Starters by Karen Andreola.
It is really neat! The pictures are so great too! I also recently purchased the book For Instructions In Righteousness by Doorposts.
More to come soon! I am gearing up for a wonderful next part of our school year!

So here are the recipients of braces! They can not be serious to save their lives!
The youngest twin boy and I had a bit of a surprise when the ortho secretary said: "Let's go ahead and do Carter's braces today instead of waiting til June." Yikes! We might as well get it out of the way. Right? So we did. Yay.
I think our orthodontist really likes us now. And I think he is keeping his eye on the youngest set of twins in hopes of more braces for my smiling faces.

Of course I know why he likes us! It is not just our "social manners" nor our congeniality.
But I am glad my children will be able to eat correctly after having their teeth fixed. I found out the poor Carter was not chewing properly, which explains his choking quite often! Here is to 2 years and straight teeth!
