We have cows out in front of our house again (there weren't any in that pasture for awhile, but they're back now). The two year old saw them this morning and got very excited. He told me "Those are awesome cows out there. They're having their dinner." :) And yes, that's snow you see out there. We have several inches this morning and may get more.

The nine year old, two year old and I spent a little time at the library today, waiting for the four year old to be done with preschool. The boys found a perfect "sit-on rock" as I used to call them when I was little.
I'm just glad this little guy is finally feeling somewhat better. He's been terribly sick for a couple weeks and had a fever and slept most of last week. We finally figured out what was wrong and got him on antibiotics and he's doing better, but he's still not back to normal. He returned to preschool this week after missing all of last week. He only goes for three hours, four days a week. They said he did well at first but then didn't seem to feel well. I'm pretty sure he was just super-tired. He nearly fell asleep on the way home, and then slept most of the evening in the living room chair. He also didn't eat any dinner because he was too tired. I hope the antibiotic does it's job. (Oh and if you're wondering, these glasses were from the dollar store - they originally had slinky springs so that the eyeball pieces fell forward.)

I've been homeschooling my kids for 16 years. We started when my oldest (who is almost 23) was going into 1st grade. I LOVE homeschooling. Sometimes, people will ask what curriculum I use, or say, "What do you DO all day?" I'm pretty sure they don't envision this...
We're not just homebodies either. In fact lately we've been doing too much running. Our nine year old just finished his football season, he's still in swimming lessons twice a week, and now 4H is starting up again. Before long it will be time for skiing. He's not sure whether he wants to join the race team or not this year, but last I heard he's back to being interested in it. (I think he figured out it will be boring to ski alone, since all his friends will be practicing with the team). We also have a great local homeschool group which goes on field trips and organizes classes together at times (like the writing class we have here at our house). It's a lot of fun, and worth every spider-filled minute. Oh and in the interest of full disclosure, there was a bit of screaming involved (and not just by me) when the large spider decided to run instead of sitting still while we were trying to trap him. ;)
