A New Laptop and The End of Sickness (Hopefully)

I have a new laptop! My old one had an “s” key that didn’t work. The kids get it now. It works fine with an external keyboard 🙂 If I can remember to keep giving Isaac his antibiotic for his ear infection, he should be able to kick that pretty quickly. Why is it so […]

The Plague

There are so many people sick in our area. It’s really crazy. On Friday, the school district we are zoned for cancelled classes for the day. They decided it would be best to have all the kids and teachers away from each other. Ethan was gone last weekend for a middle school trip with our […]

Well, Hello 2017!

Hello 2017! I’m going to pretend that I’ve been hanging out here all along without any long breaks 🙂 All my words that normally come easily to me are stuck. I feel like all the words are used up and might never return. At least the good words. I have a lot of things I […]

This and That

I just started reading this book. If have any interest in learning to write in a way that people would be interested in reading it, I highly recommend it. It’s only a little over 100 pages and it’s a little paperback. The kids and I have had some extra time together lately while Ethan has […]

Microsoft Store Opening

Ethan’s STEM scout group was invited to do a robotics demonstration at the grand opening of the Microsoft store nearby. He had so much fun!   Aren’t the lab coats fun? STEM Scouts has been a great opportunity for Ethan. We’re enjoying a holiday break from our tutorial. Our Thursdays are our own until January! […]

Trip To The Zoo

Saturday was the day that the technology team at Nathan’s workplace took everyone to the zoo! I wondered if it would actually happen because it coincided with the “great Tennessee gas panic” and we only had 100 miles left in the van. I got up early on Saturday and found gas and only had to […]

Well, Hello There, September!

It’s September! The month of school starting (except for this area starts in August) and everything else starting. We’re a month into our tutorial for homeschool. Ethan is taking History, Anatomy, Composition, Geography and Engineering Crash Helmets. Audrey is taking Science (Flying Creatures), Tennesse History (and the textbook is so bad…. it’s slowly killing us), […]

Wrapping Up July & Moving Along To August

The most exciting thing I have not written about yet is that Audrey got to spend a week (Monday – Friday 9:00-3:00) at a horse camp. They got to help feed the horses, get them ready, ride them, learn about the farm and ended each day with some time in their pool. This was pretty […]

Photos From Georgia Trip

  Ethan is in that top photo. Don’t miss that 🙂 Hee hee.

Kids Trip To Georgia!

Since I have not written for a bit, I hadn’t even mentioned (I don’t think) that the kids were getting ready to leave for a week in Georgia. Well, they went and now we’re all back home re-entering into normal life 🙂 They had so much fun! We dropped them off a week ago Saturday. […]
