    First Day of School today!!! I'm on a roll....well, I suppose I need at least two days to be on any sort of roll...*sigh*...there is always tomorrow

    Done by 1pm! I thought about taking a first day of school pic. Kids in pajamas, eating toast, and reading over coffee? Maybe bead head at noon while watching a Latin lesson on DVD? OR, I could start my own tradition and fly in the face of convention with a "Second Day of School" pic tomorrow morning. LOL!!

    HUGS, Carol "Date Night" is about to lose it's specialness. But look on the bright side....good thing you like your husband.

    Enjoy your rain, TFZ! Alexsmom, if it makes you feel better, you won't have the crazy humidity that she will have in a few hours

    Yah, no humidity here... just got the Red Flag (fire) warning on the county emergency app for high temps, gusty winds, and low low humidity.

    But.... my tomatoes are turning red! I love eating them right off the vine, when their little planty hearts are practically still beating.

    ML, do your boys drink coffee too?

    Awww look at all those smilie faces, ML.
    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.

    Yes, a bit weird. We took him out for lunch after we moved him into the dorm but before we left campus. I kept looking at him, but seeing him as he was as a toddler with his favorite blankie and stuffed rabbit. But I'm also so very proud and excited for him.

    .....and I didn't bawl like a baby until after we dropped him off and were driving away.

    Today was my "kind of" first day. I emailed my letter of intent to the district (they already replied they received it). I also sent in our withdraw letter to the dudes old charter school *gulp* . I told S & N we wouldn't "officially" start until the 17th when they would have been starting if we kept them in PS (also some materials haven't arrived ). SO, to get their feet wet I told them to do 20 min on a adaptive learning math program I found on line. They have been at it for over an hour and a half... so I say that is an "A" for today
