What a day! Up and off to work an hour early to make Friday easier for the full-timers. All in all, it didn't look to be too busy when I left so I hope their afternoon was comfortable.
The kiddo leaves for church camp on Monday. Whatever will I do? How will the house tolerate such silence? I'll be crying in my dishrag by Tuesday noon - you just watch and see. In talking about his upcoming trip, I asked him if he wanted me to cut his hair or take him somewhere. He's not used to having a say-so and looked at me with those gorgeous blue eyes and said, "Take me somewhere. I'd like to go to a professional." I must've grinned for he looked me in the eye, leaned in and whispered conspiratorially, " 'Cause you're a N-O-V-S-I-E....a novice." *chuckle* Yes, folks, we homeschool. Hey, the vocabulary is there! I haven't emphasized spelling too much, but we'll be working on it a lot this year. And I had planned to do so before being declared a NOVSIE. So there. lol
Speaking of the boychild, he wants his room to look like a laboratory! So here's what I came up with for his closet door. The brown squares are cork.
The pup-a-lup has discovered that there is very little in life that equals a (clean) old shop rag tied into a knot. She tosses it, chews on it, teases the boy with it, and will most certainly sleep with it tonight. She is quite the character. See?!
