I knew it had been awhile since I posted, but was a little surprised when I saw that I just lacked two days for it to be an entire month. I know what it is--school started. This year I have one in private school and two at home. We are having such a good year--K is doing well at private school. The big news about that is that she is driving herself there and back. I can't even begin to describe what a big deal that is--for ME. I spent more time in the car last year taking her to school and back--and to b'ball practice and back. UGH! I am so glad that is not happening this year. She's quite thrilled to have her own vehicle too--so we both win. The twins and I are having a great year here at home. It is wonderful to have them "back where they belong"! We are being pretty relaxed--yet getting a whole lot done. We are really focusing on math and language. PE started this past week, and they are always happy to be doing that--it's probably their favorite thing about home-schooling--wait--I know it's their favorite thing. I joined everyone else in the world and signed up at facebook. It's been fun finding people from high-school and college. I have emailed back and forth with some people who were wonderful friends in high school. It makes me sad that we ever lost touch. I've even found a couple of cousins that I haven't seen in 20 years. Of course--there were many blogging friends there too. Too much fun. We have been seeing a lot of wildlife in our yard lately--we have a little 4-point that makes an appearance pretty regularly these days. Yesterday, we watched a big ole black snake crawl out of the retaining wall and eat a lizard--then slither back to his home. M. found a long snake skin in the yard last week--and their was a dead cotton-mouth on the road right in front of our house. The biggest wildlife was mounted in our sun room this weekend. The bear that B. shot in Canada a couple years ago was finally mounted on our wall. He's very pretty--the mount is huge since B chose to get a half-mount--meaning the front half of the bear's body. He was so proud to finally have it. K. is involved in a youth ministry tonight at church so I'm off to get ready.
