Well – it’s Monday again and another uneventful weekend has passed us buy.

We did nothing of sustenance over the weekend. Saturdays I work  and Sunday my 13 year old and I went shopping for bras and then art supplies and groceries.

Monday bring to us – working at the barn and working at the Library.  This week we’re also planning a trip to the St. Louis Zoo.  They have stingrays and sharks that you can pet !  I also have a hair appointment for myself for a change.  I have curly hair and usually just use the hair dresser my girls use.  Well – She either wets it or just combs it out and then cuts it.  Apparently you’re not supposed to do that with curly hair.  Who woulda known?  So I go for my very first curly hair specialist hair cut.  I’m so excited!

School for the  girls will start the first week of September.  I’ve ordered and received most of their school books.  Science for both – Biology for J and Chemistry for R.   Algebra, fractions, decimals, and geometry for R. Addition and Subtraction for J.

History will be “living history books”.. Books about real people – like diaries.  Spelling for both. Grammar, handwriting etc..   I am very excited about school starting for us. The girls not so much. But who is ever excited about school – even if you’re home schooled?    We’re also incorporating Irish dance lessons, riding lessons, Pony Club  and home-school classes with the co-op.   Not to mention play groups!  And J still wants to take piano lessons!  And art!  We love art and I’ve ordered some supplies through here :


We haven’t received them yet but they’re on their way!  Can’t wait.

We’re going to use Rip the Pages by Karen Benke and also  Discovering Great Artists by MaryAnn F. Kohl and Kim Solga this year.

Wow –  I always worry that we’re not doing enough – to see it all written down – me thinks we might be doing too much!  We’ll see though. It always seems to work.

I have no new pictures so I leave you a picture of my oldest Rowan, on our girls only trip to Kansas City.  At the zoo Lorikeet feeding one of them decided to sit on her head!

Bright Blessings!
