    I really lolled at this. Now DS wants to know what I'm reading. Hahaha. You are right. It just might be worth it!
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

    Good Afternoon
    I've been away for a bit, but thought I'd check in and update...

    Had a bit of a health scare before Xmas, so DS11 went to PS in Jan. Great teacher, small class size, French (my nemesis! lol) class every day, and lots of group projects, sports and social opportunities which kind of made up for lacklustre academics... I think.

    We're going to discuss more over the summer, but I think we're Afterschoolers now!

    I noticed one of the roof shingles popped up today. I think it's our roof, another down side to the having neighbors connected. I'm going to make a call tomorrow and see if the same people that repaired my gutter can just come out and nail it down.
    My second artist association application went out in the mail today. I'm excited to see what comes of joining these groups and I've decided to start submitting to art and literary magazines again. I have so many open I need to start organizing my links again. It's been so long since I last did this I don't have any of my old bookmarks.

    We started our '16/17 school year today. It's just so fricking hot no one wants to go outside, so we decided to just get started a couple weeks early, and then we can afford the time to take off when it cools off a bit and we actually WANT to be outside.

    We started it with the first project from our new lego kit (which is all about gears!) and Tech LOVED it. Followed it up with an episode of Liberty Kids (bought the whole thing on Amazon along with the lego kit and they both came in today!)and briefly discussed the Boston Tea Party (where it starts). Started our review of letters, did some math, and painted a new planter pot for Grandma. I expected a little more argument but since it was a lot of stuff we'd been already doing over our break, and I didn't mention the "s" word, he totally didn't fight it, and had fun. YAY!

    The sun rises at 5:15am right now. Guess what time all three of mine are up? Not. Enough. Coffee.

    This is pretty much my only thought right now. I can't even panic enough about moving in 2 weeks cause *yawn*.

    alwayssmile, we have blackout curtains in all the bedrooms. Behind the regular decorative curtains. It was like $20 for the curtains and the tension rod per window, but since we are night owls, SO necessary. It might be worth investing in to get more sleep during the summer. :-)

    We're in Korea. Every single room has floor to ceiling windows that make up an entire wall! They need to be open in the summer since there's no central AC either. We do have some spectacular views at least from our 7th floor! LOL

    UGH! Floor to ceiling windows would KILL me! Of course, so would no A/C.

    It's an adventure. At least that's what I keep telling myself.
