At Laurie's house just before we left for the city, me, mom and Laurie.
At O'Lunney's Times Square Pub where we ate everything we could get our hands on... and then some!
With the help of my mother, I finally figured out how to locate where the pictures were being sent and how to get them to Picasa. Honestly, sometimes technology makes me want to scream.
We are back in school and getting a lot accomplished. I bought the Apologia Astronomy book and the kids are loving it, I must confess, I am, too. (Did I just use too many commas?) The book is so well done and we are actually doing the suggested notebooking. I am not really a suggestion follower, I consider myself a notebook maverick. If you tell me to notebook, chances are, I won't. If you say, notebooking is not required, I will probably do it. Can you say "issues?" Seriously, I could not be happier with this curriculum and to add the cherry to the top of the science sundae, there are three other girls from my co-op doing the same book. We have planned field trips and set dates to do experiments together, I am really excited and the kids have caught the fever!
Yesterday, I called Rod and Staff to place my grammar order and I received a pleasant piece of news. The lady on the phone asked me for my name and address, I gave it to her. Silence for a second, then, Mrs. Laney, do you know that you have a credit of $22? No, I said, I do? Yes, she said, would you like to apply it to today's order? You betcha, Rod and Staff order lady, please do apply my credit to this order. Wow! Grammar for the year for $9, what a bargain!!!
Everything was going so well until the mail came, bringing with it Kevin's paystub. I was planning on this being a joyous occasion, not weeping and gnashing of teeth! Let me just say, taxes are evil, evil, evil!!!
This concludes our blogcast day, please tune in tomorrow!
