Homeschooling bump already

We started school Monday! The kids couldn't wait to get at their new books, school supplies & balance scales. It's Thursday and the thrill is over. We still have to get in another 176 days. I have a feeling this may be a long school year! I know if I keep it fun it works so much better. They learn more when they think they are playing. It's just that somedays I just want to say do your school work. They like it best when we have a lot of hands on stuff like science labs. Maybe we'll bake some cookies today and double the recipe. They love that kind of math & reading assignment & so does their daddy!

Another Blogger!

Okay, I visited the Bloggy Carnival & actually won a box of the new Cocoa Puffs! I was really pleased to read many of your blogs. You're all so creative & many of you are very funny too. I decided maybe it's time for me to give it a shot. So here goes, I'm going to go think of something funny, interesting or helpful to write. So come back soon & see if I can live up to the bloggy standards. If you have any advice, feel free to sound off. Have a great day!
