So apparently it’s Tuesday. I’m not exactly sure how that happened. So I’m posting Slapdash Saturday on Tuesday, because 1) it might as well live up to its name, b) I know you all would cry with deep despair if I forgot it, and finally) I feel like it.
Not that I have anything interesting to talk about.
Well, maybe a few things.
Last Sunday Art took the boys camping. I have all the pictures waiting to be edited, but still haven’t gotten around to it. I need to, because they had such a fun time and it really deserves a blog post. While the boys were out roughing it, Squeezy and I did laundry and ate ice cream and watched Praise Baby: My Father’s World, because, hello!? Girl’s Night, BABY! 😉 Anyway, it was really nice that Art could take them on a Sunday night; one of the definite perks of this whole homeschooling gig.
Speaking of this homeschooling gig, we’ve now been in school two weeks. I have discovered that Bubs struggles with handwriting (knew it already) and math (didn’t realize it before), that Stinky struggles with short vowels (shoot me in the head, if I have to tell him what i says one more time I might lose my mind), and that Squeezy likes the pictures in A Child’s Garden of Verses. Stinky is going through his math book at the rate of two lessons a day; so far it’s been mostly shapes and colors and number recognition, and he’s really solid on that stuff. We’ll see how he does when we start with harder stuff. Bubs has cried over his math about four times. The kid obviously inherited my personal issues with the subject, lucky kid.
If you’re in central Iowa, I’d like to remind you of my fundraiser for Nate and Pam’s babies. I have one family lined up, one family that I’m probably going to do if we can ever get our schedules to coordinate, and a couple other people my mom has hooked me up with that I just need to confirm. Which leads me to this– if you live in or near Omaha and are interested in participating in this, let me know. My parents live out there and we could probably set up a photo shoot on a weekend we’re there. If you’re considering this, let me just encourage you to get in touch with me. A free cd of pictures in exchange for any size monetary gift– that’s a pretty good deal. And it’s for a wonderful cause. 🙂
And with that, I’m done. Well, almost done. Being that it’s now halfway through Tuesday, I’m having issues remembering what happened last week. Which is why I should have edited the camping pictures, right? But since everything is better with pictures, I leave you with this lovely shot of our dog Rosie, sleeping with her head in Squeezy’s hat.
There’s a reason we call her faildog.
