Something magical happened yesterday when we all loaded into the van to run errands. I had a Thrilling Revelation.
I’ve had people ask how the kids are doing with our new school routine this year, so I thought I’d post a quick update. We’ve made it past the first midterm period, which according to math means that we’re more than 1/8 of the way done with this school year. I do this with everything. […]
We survived five days– in a row– of school, and I feel like we deserve cookies. Unfortunately, if we are going to eat cookies I’m going to have to bake them, and I am happily ensconced in my recliner for the evening, so I guess cookies are out. I started this week with an arthritis […]
She’s my best girl and I’m her favorite mommy, and yesterday, with her backpack on her back and her tummy a little fluttery, she told me she was too big to hold my hand. I took it with good grace, I guess. We were walking into her new school to meet her new teacher and […]

I know. It’s Tuesday. Tuesday night, actually. But this is my blog and if I want to do my Monday Meander on Tuesday night, I feel pretty much okay with that. Last week, in true Weird Homeschooler fashion, we started our new school year. We had a decent first week, with no unexpected drama and […]
Look! More vacation pics!!! Hooray!!! (Today’s vacation post is brought to you by my enemy the snooze bar.) After our days in Louisiana, we woke up early on Saturday morning and heading northeast to southern Indiana, where Art’s sister lives. We were on the road super early and drove a few hours before we stopped […]
