I am so happy to be back to normal life this morning! We are starting school today and it’s been a full month of doing nothing but entertaining ourselves and not cleaning the house.
Are you as overwhelmed as I am by all of the activity surrounding this time of year? School starting, summer ending, new afternoon and evening schedules and so many new things popping up on the calendar!
The boys are so excited about this trip that it’s been non-stop Universal talk for weeks. Since April we have had a countdown display on the school white board and every morning they change the number.
As you may know, we homeschool our kids. Yep, all 9 of ’em. They have never been to any kind of traditional school and at this point 5 of them are homeschool graduates.
Rain! We finally got rain after months of dryness. There were cracks in our yard so big I was worried that one of the chickens might fall right in.
In an effort to stay cool I have been equipping myself with cooling gadgets and devices. I like gadgets and new technology. I can’t always figure them out, but I still like them.
Gee, I didn’t realize going out to dinner was such a rare occasion for them. Clearly we have given our children the impression that it only happens when there is a serious reason for it. Like a birthday or giving terrible news.
Yes, we have gotten into the new craze…Pokémon Go. Before you throw stones and tell me how it was started with evil intent and Christians shouldn’t be spending time on such terrible things, let me fill you in.
Because there was a genuine risk of us of getting overrun with all of my lip balm concoctions piling up in corners of my house, I decided to send them to my friends. Everyone loves a homemade gift, right?
Last week I shared my mom tips for what you need to do when you go to Universal. This place is so much fun and you don’t want a little lack of preparedness to spoil your fun. With just a teeny bit of thinking ahead, your time at these parks can be stupendous!
