The return to school

Everybody is doing it. The buses were lined up this week. Traffic has returned.

Peanut and I watched the little girl next door have her "first day" photos taken as she got on the

bus for the first time. Her parents were teary eyed as they walked back to the house.

Princess was still sleeping, so she missed it

Our friends are all back to school now. Normally Princess would be missing them,

but since we get Peanut most days, no complaining. They love being together.

They play well all day, exploring the backyard, designing great world's of fantasy play

all over the inside and outside of the house. Barbies, coloring books, Legos,puzzles, blanket

forts,tea parties. Princess is teaching Peanut everything she knows. Sorry Naomi. ;-)

We will not start our pre-k and 2ND grade curriculum until after Princess's birthday.

I like to wait until Autumn officially starts.Suck the last bit of fun out of Summer.

If you asks my family, they'd probably tell you that is exactly what I do all year long.

Suck the fun right out. lol My mood has been improving slightly.

Exercising regularly has made a huge difference in my life. I'm not just talking about

my huge tush getting smaller My stress level has gotten smaller.

Or maybe the muscle that allows me to deal with it all is just getting bigger, or at least

stronger. ;-) I am getting my little homeschool ready for the new season, and will be back

with more regular posts soon. We are going to have a FUN year here in our little corner of the Garden State, so stay tuned. I will be having more product reviews, give aways, and craft ideas

and fun in the kitchen ideas. There will be books to share and fun ways to celebrate the fun holidays through out the year. I hope you will all stick around for it.

I'm glad you're feeling better and looking forward to the homeschooling posts! You always have such creative ideas, and you never fail to inspire me.

We are usually fast asleep while the children here are walking to school. We get up and head to the playground in the mornings. Gavin always manages to find someone to play with there, usually younger children.

As homeschooling families go, there are many here, but we're the odd ones who "do school" in the afternoons. LOL

Take good care of yourself, and have fun with Princess and Peanut!

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one dealing with moods and a huge tush. I just can't seem to stay on the wagon! ...I'll try harder next week...;>)

I am happy to hear how much your exercise is helping. That's wonderful!

I worked time into our schedule to bike ride to four of Zoe's outside classes each week. We live in a small town so they are all pretty close.

I used to love riding my bike and, now that I am no longer experiencing the bad side effects of aspartame and sucralose I have more energy too.

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 .
