I forgot that I have a Giveaway going on!
The Winner is…
Congrats Katy. You’re going to have to help me out and send me your full name and address please. I promise not to sell it to any junk mail associates.
Hope you enjoy your Fringe Vanilla!
* I went to CVS and bought super-duty Zantac. It’s working already. Heartburn be gone! Thank you Lord.
** Yesterday I cooked up a pot of spaghetti sauce which I did not eat due to the whole heart-burn issue, but my daughter got wowed by my apron (thank you mom). I even wore a necklace (not pearls) and heals (wedges) while I cooked. I was a regular Donna Reed.
Today I haven’t yet shed my sweat pants and t-shirt.
*** School is about to begin in New York. Did you hear me struggle for breath? I had a mild hearty-tack.
I am NOT ready for school!
Yes, I am homeschooling again this year. That’s why I’m not ready, otherwise, I’d be dancing in the aisles of Staples and buying hundreds of glue sticks. I still bought glue sticks, but it wasn’t quite as much fun.
I’m not sure how to say this without offending someone, but I’m not a homeschooler at heart. I don’t love teaching my kids fractions, verbs, and spelling words. I’m sorry. It’s just not my thing.
My kids did do fabutastically in the academic area last year and that’s why we are going for one more year. Probably only one more year.
My kids really miss the ‘too many kids in a classroom’ part of school and I don’t really blame them. We’re all kinda social and hate being stuck at the kitchen table all winter diagraming sentences and exploding flour and water volcanoes. Everything’s more fun with a crowd, at least that’s our thought process.
If we could homeschool together with 3 or 4 other homeschool families, we’d enjoy ourselves immensely, but then that would be school.
**** If you want, I’ll do a post on homeschool curriculum and tell you what I love and hate. Let me know in the comments. Some of you may benefit from another opinion.
****** Our plague saga continues. I actually caught two millipedes being intimate on our bathroom wall. I let them have their fun and then I killed them. Yes, I felt bad, but they have a thousand babies at one time. Heaven forbid another thousand millipedes overtake my house. I would be forced to sell and move to Alaska.
If you think I’m joking, you haven’t lived with millipedes.
Yes, I photographed the love-pedes for your educational enjoyment. It’s a regular zoo around here. Next I’ll document a live slug birth.
My daughter is convinced she witnessed a live slug birth. Internet answer people claim slugs do not gjve birth to their young like mammals, but we’re ready to challenge slug scientists on this one.
I think I’ll wrap this up, because after discussing millipede mating and slug births, what’s left to talk about?
Tell me, do you homeschool?
Have you tried or would never consider it??
