Time for Homeschool :)

I am starting Rebekah in kindergarten on Monday. And yes I know that it is Labor Day but Jim has off and it would be a great day to start because he can help with the other two.

So I wanted to post some pictures of my newly transformed dining room into our school room. She is very excited. She asked if she could start tomorrow:)
Rebekah's subjects are Reading/Phonics, Writing, Numbers, Saftey and Bible. She will have one memory verse a week and she has a chart that I put stickers on when she is finished. She will also say the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag, Christian flag and the Bible. I want to treat this as serious as possible. But at the same time, we can have some fun!!

New Use For Shaving Cream

Here is a picture of Rebekah playing with shaving cream in our Wednesday night Bible class. We just spray a little on the table and draw and scribble and just play with it. It disintegrates and it cleans your table!! :)

My New Hair

I have decided to post a picture of my semi-new hair cut. I got it done right before Cedar Point. I realized that I don't get to see everyone that reads my blog. I rarely leave the hair shop with a cut I like but I totally fell in love with this one. She did a great job and gave me some great styling tips. She also showed me how to use root lifter. And if you have flat hair like mine, root lifter is a must!!!

Wow, I just noticed the difference of what I look like now verses my picture in my sidebar taken a year ago.........

No More Bottles!!!!

Well, Nicolas is offically off of bottles!! His last one was Sunday before his nap. The downfall was he quit drinking out of sippy cups...any kind I tried!!! So I gave him some tummy ticklers and he loves them. They are great. They come filled with juice already and are totally spill proof!! I got him Toy Story & Bob the Builder. I am finally getting somewhere with him. Now if I could only work with Savannah on potty training.....

More on the fish

I forgot to mention that you can click your mouse and it will leave fish food:)


Don't forget to say Hi to my new pet fish on my side bar:)

They are very easy to take care of and never make a sound. They are very obedient, move your mouse and watch them follow you:)

Have Fun!

New Links :)

I have to new links on my side bar. 4 Little Men & Mommy Confessions. These are just a couple of blogs that I happened upon and I found them interesting. Go ahead and have a look, just remember that although I do enjoy reading their blogs, I do not agree with everything they write. But I am sure you will find some laughter out of them.

On a side note, yesterday my side bar moved to under my posts and my page was a mile long. I could not fix it. I tried everything, I even took about an hour an searched the troubleshooting. So I had to delete everything and start over again. That's why I have a new layout. Hopefully I am done changing it for awhile.

One more thing. I am looking for a blog header so if anyone knows of any great FREE websites I would definitely be interested in hearing about them. Talk to you all soon!! Thanks for reading!!

Word Verification

I changed how you leave comments now. You no longer have to go through a word verification!! Those of you who do not know what one is, here is an example GHDRET and then you type that into a box. It stops spammers from spamming. I think it is annoying because sometimes I really can't even read it right to type it. So it's gone!! For those of you who want to know how to do this, go to your dash board than settings and go to comments and check the marked button.

Cedar Point!!

O.k, I will start off by saying I had the time of my life!!!! I had my picture drawn by a character drawer. I will post a pic of it later. I rode about 4 rides. We stood in line for 7 of them. The first one was the Mantis, I waited an hour for it but I couldn't ride it in a skirt so I had to wait, I was a little bummed, it was our first ride. But then I got to ride the Mean Streak, Iron Dragon, Thunder Canyon and the Wicked Twister. I cried after the wicked twister cause it was so scary!!!! I held on to my nephew Dave's arm so tight!!!

my funny story is, is that, I waited almost2 hours to rise the Millennium Force and got on it and then asked to get off!!! I just couldn't do it!! By the time we were there, it was dark and the people who rode it were coming back covered in BUGS!!! Some of them were black with bugs, I mean there face neck and arms were covered. It was more towards the front, so between the bugs and the height of the ride, I chickened out.

I was in A LOT of pain the next day but it was totally worth it, I would do it again in a heart beat!!!

Just A Bunch Of Pictures

Here's some pictures from the past week at the Fichtner's!!

I know I will not be able to do much but I am definitely going to rise 1 roller coater. My nephew Dave is going so he can be Jim's ride partner. I am sure I will love the breaks form walkkng by sitting waiting for them to get done with a ride. But I love to people watch so I am sure I will have fun doing that!!! I will write an update about our time we had later!!!

Some Pictures

Heres some pictures of the kids. Nicolas with his first ice cream cone and the girls after thier shopping spree with MiMi and Rebekah & Nicolas cuddling on her chair.

Here's A Little Update

Well, I had my hysterectomy on August 5th. Everything went well. I had minimal blood loss and I was able to keep my overies. Which means no hormone replacment for me!!!! :) The recovery has been alittle harder than I had expected. I have three incisions on my belly with a couple of stiches in them all. Everyday it seems to be a little better so hopedully soon I will be back to normal. Today is my first day with all three of my kids bymyself. Let's just say, the house is a MESS!! But the kids are having fun ruling around the house. I just don't have the energy for it.

Well I am sure you all noticed my new blog layout. It is so cute!! I found a website that offers free layouts and there are a ton of them to choose from. You can click the link in the upper left hand side on my blog. Have fun choosing!!

Backpack Backpack!!!!

I also bought Nicolas a backpack on my birthday. I LOVE to buy my children things and he needed one. The girls both have one that I pack for when they go over night or to someones house for the day. So I got Nicolas one for next week when I have my surgery.

For those of you who do not know, I am having a hysterectomy August the 5th for medical reasons. Please remember to pray for me!!!

Wow Nicolas

I thought I would post a couple of pictures of Nicolas throwing a fit. He does this about 10 times a day. Sometimes I try to find the humor in that I don't go crazy!!!!

Nicolas Throwing A Fit!!! :(

Hibatchi Japan for my birthday!!!

Well my husband really took me by surprise when he asked to take me to Hibatchi Japan. I was so excited. It really made my day. He even called me from work to wish me a happy birthday, which he never calls from work, so it just really made my day. We had a great time last night. The food was great and our chef did some really nice tricks with the food. I had chicken & fillet Mignon!!!! That's definitely a once a year kinda dinner!!!
