By now, you've probably figured out my summer has been a bit on the busy side. We have been very busy w/just life in general and a myriad of other things that have just become a blur! I remember working more, babysitting more, field trips, starting school and co-opping, more work and now I've been sick for over a week. The State Fair is upon us and we usually go every year. It's a great time and we have our favorite food spots to stop at. If I feel better soon we'll go. Then there's the Renaissance Festival which just happens to coincide w/where we are in History so we'll make a trip there on their school day for lots and lots o'fun. Right now we're just plugging away at keeping up w/the school schedule. My friend Ali and I are doing the same Tapestry of Grace stuff so that's fun. She also got me hooked on the Homeschool Tracker and I just love it! (Thanks again Ali!) It's free and probably worth it's weight in gold as far as record keeping. I highly recommend it! We also go on field trips together and we have such fun! It's so great to have a close friend to homeschool with!
Anyhoooooo, I have to stay on top of correcting assignments and entering them into the 'Tracker'. So, I will stop by again later this week. I also hope to have some new pics to post as soon as I can make it back to WalMart.

Hello everyone, I've missed my blogging friends!
Boy has life been busy!
We went on vacation for a week and it was great.
When we came back we learned my aunt died of lung cancer at the age of 51. She was diagnosed on the 4th of July. She passed away the 20th.
So…wake, burial, all day youth group field trip, meeting at church, babysit friend's kids, friend from church's funeral, double shift at work, sleep, another shift at work, another shift at work, babysit other friends kids, today. Whew! Did you catch that? That's not even the extra drama in between! The rest of the week is work, work, work, wedding, work, work, work…
I am hoping to get around to 'visiting' everyone and do some catching up. Hopefully I can do that during the day next week.
So, things are sort of slowing down or at least more steady. I hope all of you are well and doing great!
P.S. “POLO”…for Jessica!
