My son worked all day today on a new animation for my website. I wanted to upload it, but it was too big. Click on the picture to see it on my website.
We typically do a 4 day school week. We take Monday off to run errands. It works fairly well. But, this week is Thanksgiving week. Some public schools in the area are taking off (my kids keep me up on this). We will definitely take off Thursday and Friday. I am now being encouraged by … [Read more…]
Now I can't ever again say, “I never win anything”. I took my 9 year old son to a cooking school (kind of like Emeril's show). It cost $30 for both of us to get in. Now that's pretty extravagant for our family. But, when we got there, they loaded us down with great samples and … [Read more…]
The past couple of weeks have been very busy. One of the biggest things that happened was that we put my father in-law in a nursing home. I posted earlier that he has alzheimers. He had been living with my sister in-law. It got to where she couldn't take care of him anymore. It was … [Read more…]

We had a lot going on today, so I never got around to working with my 4th grader. I was feeling a little guilty about it. He didn't seem to mind too much. I had to go to the church building tonight and work on bible class stuff. While I was gone, he was … [Read more…]
Here is a picture I took last week at my great nephew's 2nd birthday party. He thought it was great fun to release them. Just thought you might enjoy it too.
Today was really beautiful. We spent another great morning playing soccer. Then, there was nothing to do. I literally didn't know what to do. That worries me. If I have free time, I obviously have forgotten something that I should be doing. After messing with my website a little, the kids hanging around me … [Read more…]
The past few Saturday mornings have been spent with home school families playing soccer. This is a Fall ritual around here. For 6 weeks every fall most of the home school families in our area gather together from 8:45-12:00 to let their kids play soccer. The kids have a blast, the parents get to relax … [Read more…]
