...it's just not happening. Yesterday was an extememly full, fun day and sadly I took no pictures. We had a great Catholic book study meeting with great discussions and neat crafts for the kids and I am very frustrated that I took no pictures. This blogging obsession has almost gotten to the point where I feel like if I have no pictures it didn't really happen. I also sometimes feel like as soon as an event is over I better blog about it or I feel like I'm hiding something. It's a sickness, right? I think I am definitely addicted. Speaking of sickness I just found out someone who was at the meeting has strep throat which is stressing me a little because Madi has Bridge to Terabithia this weekend. I've swallowed a hundred times since hearing that trying to make sure my throat is OK.
Yesterday continued with a two part Mom's night (Thai food--[I also found out someone who was there may have gotten food poisoning---news travels fast on the internet!!]-- then dessert at my house until all hours of the night) in honor of a dear friend who is moving away! This Mom was one of my first friends here and we have a long history together. It just won't be the same without her and her family!! I took no pictures of that either. We did have four hot air balloons out our front window yesterday in the small amount of time we were home, and Madi did get some pictures of those, but I'm too tired to put them on the computer right now.
So anyway, no school today. Madi did babysit this morning and we did some art, so the morning wasn't a total loss. Jake's school work is on the table all ready for him, but I'm pretty sure we won't get any farther than that. This afternoon Madi and I are going to a presentation on Laura Ingalls Wilder and then all three kids will have 3 hours of Theatre, so we certainly aren't taking a "day off", but as all of you homeschoolers know it is getting to be that time of year where if we give up on our curriculum now, it'll be mid-January before we look at it again...it's a slippery slope! I'm going to try to hang on a little longer.
And just to throw in a little humor that I know at least a few of you will appreciate...Jake was coloring with colored pencils earlier and he was reading the colors as he was choosing his pencils, then he said, "Speaking of light brown, I have to go poop!"
