Why have I been gone for so long?

I am not sure. We have been busy here...canning..cleaning...moving furniture around
to be more cozy for the coming Autumn.First Grade. Birthday parties.
Laundry..isn't there always laundry? Planning Princess's upcoming 6th birthday!!
The menu has been re-written several times already..and the "theme" has changed at least
3 times! The invitations have been mailed now, so it is "set in stone".
This years theme will be "Autumn Festival"...Princess is very specific in her themes.
There will be fun "autumnal" activities and party games, food,cupcakes...fun,fun,fun.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate, we are maxed out space wise inside!
Keep everything crossed ladies, and if you pray...add us to your list! ;-)
Princess has been having fun this school year, reading,practicing her handwriting,
maths, science, today we will be celebrating National Cinnamon Raisin Day
and Collect Rocks Day! This means baking and rock hunting...hmm....sounds familiar.
We did do the Unplugged Group Project Yesterday, but I could not get the camera hook-up
cord thingy from behind the computer desk to upload the photos in time.Rats!!
Actually the theme was sand..check out here.
Today we are having new gutters put on the house. Farmer Dad caulked,scraped and painted
whatever bits needed that to get them up and after they come...maybe we can paint the whole house!
Yippee!! I have a lot to do, and many pictures to upload.I will also be back later with a book post.

Ive been blogging but I sure havent been getting around to read blogs. Its just such a busy time of year!
Parties are fun but really I do hate planning them. Im such a stick in the mud when it comes to kids parties.

There's always laundry! I don't know how people with lots of kids do it all. I can't keep up with my two little mess makers.

Glad you are otherwise okay. I noticed that you hadn't posted in a few days. ;)

I know what you mean about being busy with life...sometimes it just requires a break :) ...and, laundry...I definitely know what you mean here! My hubby was on vacation last week and I was slacking in the laundry department just a bit, so this week I have been paying dearly for it, lol! I will have it caught up today, though...sheesh!

I'm sure the party will go off without a hitch...

Owen just discovered he likes to vacuum... next up I'll introduce him to the joys of LAUNDRY!!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
