money money money must be funny in a rich man's world

Ok so I have Abba on my brain today. No I haven't seen Mama Mia yet. But my girls have been playing dancing queen over and over and over for the past couple of days. We seem to have a very eclectic love of music. When I went to get 3 of my little boys up yesterday, they were singing a Queen song. and today? Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. We love music. SOmeone always has music going. We love all types jazz, showtunes, old rock, contempary christian, pop, country. Some favorites: Rosemary Clooney, Michael Buble, Kenny Chesney, Third Day, Mercy Me, Phillips Craig and Dean, Lifehouse, the Saraha soundtrack, Queen, Faith Hill, Martina McBride. Yes very eclectic indeed.

So that brings me to my singing the money song :) I ordered all our school curriculum last night. Our move has again been pushed back until the end of the month. We were supposed to move on the 2nd. Which is why I had not ordered yet. When we had the money finally I did not think it would all get here before we left. But when we do move I will have 10 weeks to find a midwife, unpack, make it homey, get ready for baby and get into a routine with schooling. So I wanted to have all our books ready. SO last night I went internet shopping! So my my 10th grader: Abeka for spainish, spelling, science and health. Teaching textbooks for math and Notgrass History for history, bible, literature, poetry,and english. For the rest: My Father's World for everything but math. I am using Scott Foresman for the 12 and 11 y/o. and Horizons for the 9 and 7 y/o. and Handwriting Without Tears for everyone but the high schooler. Even my preschoolers :) As soon as we unpack I will pull out all of our draw right now's too. I love that. Even I can draw using that program :D So hopefully I did not forget anything.This is the first time I have really mixed up what we are using. I tend to like to order everything from one place. and I thought about breaking out the Kono's (which I LOVE) but didn't want to put so much on my plate right now. I am trying not to stress. I was doing fine until the date was pushed to the end of the month and I realized how little time I had to get ready for the baby and start school. Plus all the little things that moving intails, such as finding new doctors, transfering prescriptions ect... But I know it will all work out.

I love to hear that another family has a love for all types of music.

Heather - this reminds me so much of the days leading up to Stacia's birth.

We moved from AK to TX when I had 8 weeks to go. We moved into our house 2 weeks before she was born. I was so blessed the older two girls made the move with us to help me set everything up before they moved to WA. LOL
