So my homeschool plans for Sam last year kind of fell apart. I was going to do K12 this year for sure but something held me back and by the time I got all my paperwork in he was on a list. I started doing research about what to do with him while he was on the list and flat out decided to ditch K12 altogether and just homeschool him.

I don't know what has happened to me. Sam had a meltdown a few days ago, and part of his tearful undoing was the fact that he really wanted to see and hold a snake, and soon. I thought it was weird, I'll admit, until I realized it was kind of how I feel about having a bath, that it takes the static away and makes me feel all whole and reborn and all that, and who am I to judge, and please just calm down, son.

Oh my. My 14-year-old is taller than me now, I am pretty sure. He says he is 5'8” but I think it's more now, and my 11-year-old daughter wore me down to get her some summer clothes (I wanted to wait until she was permanently at my house for the summer), so we spent the afternoon at Target where I had to take her out of the girls department and into the women's/juniors section.

I have sick kids. Henry has been coughing all morning, Olivia says it hurts to talk. I believe her because while I am Not Sick, it hurts me to talk/swallow/breathe too. I don't Get Sick. It's not allowed.

Hazel had a dance dress rehearsal and recital this weekend.
At the dress rehearsal I somehow missed how much life was left on my battery and halfway through the event my camera battery died.

I usually write posts in the evening when I have these thinky-thoughts and am feeling a theme to Mah Life, but since it's morning things inside my head are a little more static-y.

My youngest child is five years old.
She is busy and precocious and fearlessly hurtles herself into life. It's bittersweet joy to watch her, my last baby, grow up so quickly.

I can't get enough of these tulips. As far as I'm concerned they are miracles of nature of the highest order. I really am capable of taking pictures of things besides flowers.

Unfortunately their appetites are not affected, and left to their own devices they will strip my cupboards bare in a few hours. Having kids like mine is like living with four termites ranging from 40-110 pounds. I'm kind of wondering what ailments I can introduce into our household that will keep them from eating my entire paycheck. Do you have any suggestions? . . . → Read More: Outsmarting Termites
