'Roid Week starts Monday. I have 10 new shots but nothing spectacular. I guess I'll have to shoot something on Sunday.

The boy scout who was lost was actually a path and would leave the path whenever he heard someone coming and hide. He didn't come out until the person on the path was a ranger if I remember correctly.

Big things happening around here. Thing 1 lost her second tooth and Thing 3 is reading all by herself but only if she thinks you aren't paying attention. I can't figure it out and she tells me she can't read when I ask why. The only thing I can think of is she doesn't want to "perform" her new skill.

The one I nannied does the same thing on reading, I think it's fear they won't be read to if they can do it themselves. Just a thought.

Thanks for parking over the line and so close to my car that I can't get in.

Allowances for 6 year-olds. Opinions?

This is kind of what I was thinking. They have a set list of things they have to do every day. Every so often they are particularly helpful and dh will give them money when he hears about it as a treat, but they've been asking how they can earn money to save for a couple of things they want.

Trying to decide on my Ravellenic projects. So far I have Thing 2's hat, a baby sweater and chunky socklettes. All small, fast knits that I could do (each) in a few days. I'm wondering if I should just do those now and pick something else. Or add another thing.

Or i could just do those and not spend every moment of my life knitting during the olympics.

A good watch and something to think about even for homeschoolers. Are your kids getting enough down time?

The joys of being an adult child. And the oldest. And the most "responsible" one.

Turns out my sprained ankle is a strained tendon. Joy.

If you are looking for someone to chat with about multiples, homeschooling/unschooling, traditional food, keeping kosher, techy stuff, knitting and finding time for everything then you've come to the right place!

Feel free to add me to a circle and delete me later if we don't mesh. I won't be offended. :)
