(Not to mention Chicken Pot Stickers)
(Oh Yeah - and the Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice)
(Oops - don't forget the leftover white rice from #2's bowl....I don't think I need to eat for a few weeks.....)
(And I better not forget to tell you about the Strawberry Ice Cream Pie my very talented sister-in-law served up after dinner...yeah, I had a piece...)
John's parents just celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary yesterday! So they took us out! Hey, I'm game...
They are special people and it's always wonderful to spend time sharing our little family with them...our girls are sooooo blessed to have such wonderful Grandparents!
In other news, #3 really likes her doggie cousins (sorry, again, no pictures) but not as much when they're at eye level. She'd rather be eye level with a camera....
Good Night and Good 'Luck'

Today my 3 girls and I cleaned the play area of the basement.
Today I couldn't stop thinking about homeschooling and the small details left to tie into a pretty bow.
See?? Teething, rubbing, pressing on her gums...whimpering, "Hodejoo." (Hold You)
Some days it just has to rain and kids just need to be held.

This can only end one of two ways - let's just leave it at that.
In other news, I have become organized!
Here is 'My Binder' (sung to the tune of 'My Buddy')
It is pretty and happy and holds 13 wks worth of scheduling.
I've decided that 13 weeks is about all I can handle in one place.
'My Planner' (second verse same as the first)
One last thing:

It's about to get really green around here.....
I'll bring the parsley!
I must confess that I'm getting impatient for a whole bushel of these puppies:
(come on you guys - soak up the sun!)
I never knew that basil blooms:
One green bean...
Some green beans:
Last but NEVER least....the Pink Brandywine Heirloom tomatoes......

(Has anyone ever seen Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken? Right????)
This used to be my coat closet.....(I'm sorry, truly I am... Books are probably the least exciting thing to look at when you happen upon a blog... but this is the ugly truth...)
This pile of books rest on top of our family roll-top desk. One is a catelog. One is a binder for MACHE - Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators. (They keep on top of the MN Homeschool laws and information and then make it available to us in laymans terms. I've been to one of their conferences and the amount of info and support is beyond incredible. I'm excited to do the full conference this year with John!) The colorful binder is #1's 'back to school' gear that she helped pick out. (It helped her to feel more in control of her future. No, Really - it did)Spelling Power is a spelling curriculum from 8yrs to adult. The list goes on...and on...
I am excited! I have peace in my heart and am resolved in my mind. I'm nervous and thrilled and putting together a schedule that seems packed yet possible. But until September 14th, I'm going to do as much of this as I can:
#2 - with 'muscles'
#1, #3, #2

Maybe I go a little too far, but after having a difficult day, I often look through pictures from days I know I was a good mom to happy children....
