Did you say Jackrabbit for luck?
Now you're lucky.
We got rain here on Saturday morning!
Rain. That wet stuff that falls from the sky.
We got some.
Took the temperature down from a gazillion to only a billion.
We had the best summer weekend full of swimming and eating and Farmers' Marketing and bicycling and basketballing and gardening and, and, and ...
I put little glasses of flowers all over my house.
Such a simple pleasure and so fun to just clip whatever strikes me fancy.
You know, they're pretty easy to learn.
They all start with an A (just add the north and south part to the Americas) except for Europe. You get two right off the bat with North America (where you live), then it's easy to remember South America after that. AFrica comes AFter that. ANtarctica comes after AFrica. AUstralia comes after ANtarctica cuz first you were cold and now you're hot. ASpulls up the rear cuz ASia and ASS start with an AS, right? Then there's just good old Europe to tack on the end.
Um, yea, well, it works for us.
LOOK at all our free days!
I work hard in the summer to make sure we don't have many days planned so that we're free to do whatever.
Wednesday is our only busy day with Russian, unschooling park day and then the Farmers' Market, but we like all those things so it's never a problemo.
YEA for summer!
My favorite tea cup.

For some reason, I feel it is important to know how to use a dictionary, antiquated as that may be.

He really loves doing this.
I try to come up with the craziest words I can think of.
My mama suggested cul de sac.
His brain exploded on that one.
Angus the wonder dog.
My Flame Acanthus is finally aflame.
This thing is taking over my yard.
Well, it was.
I pruned it to within an inch of its pretty little life.
Plumbago is plum purty.
Evil Bermuda grass is not.
My latest doodad.
This came in a "learning" game.
I ditched the game and displayed the dude.
Bounty from the market.
Giant Ball jar scored from a yard sale.
All I got.
What's up in your neck o' the woods?
