not myself

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

I woke up like normal today and spent a leisurely couple of hours on the computer before Daisy got up. Tabitha quickly followed and asked for the computer. At this point I stayed on another 20-minutes or so realizing I really didn’t feel like getting up. Eventually I did and while I got the kids […]

2 latest projects

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Daisy spied monkey fabric in my fabric bin that I had used on a dress for her over a year ago. Since it’s outgrown she said I needed to make a new one. I went with a skirt instead and then scanned one of the monkeys and used that as my pattern for the appliqued […]

it’s all greek to me

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Thanks to a great friend and great in-laws, we don’t have children this evening. We decided not to eat with the kids and instead went out alone together after dropping off the second child. We found a Greek restaurant and decided to try it. I am so glad we did! Really good food. I […]

Because Thursdays are our busiest days of the week, it seemed like a great idea to sign up for a homeschooling bowling league :/ The kids had fun and I had great fun watching them though so it’s worth it.
So yesterday a couple bees were found in my living room. I freaked, because I […]

look, fish!

Today was Homeschool Day at the aquarium. We look forward to it every year because they drastically cut the ticket price and school groups aren’t allowed to book on this day. As homeschoolers, we like being able to go to museums and such mid-week, but it stinks when we run into multiple school groups […]

mummies and ladybugs, though not together

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Yesterday the girls and I attended a class on mummies designed for homeschoolers. It’s the first time we took one of the Science Center Homeschool classes so we weren’t sure what to expect other than traffic. Kids were divided into 3 different age groups to begin with. Parents have the choice of dropping off or […]

pleasant little saturday

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

We started yesterday with pancakes which the kids always consider an excellent start. We then went to Best Buy which was frustrating and then the mall which was fun. We did a little shopping, took a survey on movies which earned us each a couple dollars (Tabitha was especially happy to add to her Disney […]

just had to check the date on my last post

Friday, September 17th, 2010

…because I couldn’t remember when I last posted. It’s just the age-old blog story of being busy so don’t have time to blog and when I have time, there’s really nothing to blog about.
This week we went to the fair, Tabitha had a movie watching play date for Camp Rock 2 (it is not better […]

Few things make me happier than sitting at a park while my kids play. Today I only have one kid and the park borders a very busy street so the car noise never stops. This is neither relaxing nor really any fun. The little one is climbing and we brought her scooter so it’s […]

tag team day

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Once again I’m at dance. Pretty much assume any blog written in the afternoon is done at dance. Loving being able to connect to the internet via my phone; it’s handy when I can’t tap into some free wi-fi. Today is Daisy for an hour and a half, during that time Tabitha does some lessons […]

as it goes

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Standard problem of living life and therefore no time to blog about it! I’m sitting at dance right now with one room playing “All the Single Ladies” and the other playing “Electric Avenue.” Curious mashup, but good blogging music.
We pretty much made the most of our 3-day weekend. Saturday morning we took off first thing […]

Wed. made up for Tues

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Yesterday Miss Daisy and I were talking and I wanted to do something for her. Together we thought on it and decided to go to the monkey zoo. It’s a small zoo with 50 monkeys and with Daisy being our Monkey-girl, I knew she’d want to go. The three of us had a lovely time […]
