Missing those two days got me down. I had the internal whining of "I can't believe I've already missed two days in the first month. Why keep going?" Wah, wah, wah! I did keep going, but failed to get the pictures on the computer and posted. I kept telling myself to "just keep going" (Can you hear my Dorie voice? "just keep swimming, just keep swimming!") and not to care about falling behind.
I've gotten so discouraged with falling behind the past two years that I've given up, but this year I set a goal to finish strong...so I'm plugging away. For me it doesn't matter if it's late, as long as it gets done.
With that, enjoy weeks 5 & 6...

We went shopping on a drizzly afternoon and all I came home with was an empty Jelly Belly wrapper. Imagine that!

I needed to make some progress on desk organization. It wasn't really working for me so I cleared everything off and started over. (all except the lamp, water bottle and the friendship bracelet my 9-year-old was teaching me to make.)

We checked out a local homeschool Science fair
We cried when Mike and Ruby went home to their owner.
Then we took ourselves out to dinner.

A co-worker brought in a quilt that her grandmother had made since she knew I was into quilting.
What a masterpiece! It had so many fun details and I enjoyed looking at it for quite awhile.

Exactly where she's not supposed to be. Sigh.

Enjoying Rhett play on the keyboard.

We live on a one lane dirt road so when they trim the trees around the power lines you get to wait.
We were trying to get to a homeschool open gym class (our first time) and were told they would finish in 10 minutes. 45 minutes later we were on our way.
We finally made it to the gym. Downstairs had a rope climbing wall, a rock climbing wall, inflatables, soccer and basketball. Upstairs had a room full of plugged-in exercise. The girls tried it all.
