We have come again to another Friday Fragments, my weekly wrap-up and unloading of the jumbled thoughts running through my brain all this week….I caught a few to put in here today 😉 Please click over to discover all the fragmenting and week wrapping that goes on with Mrs. 4444 and with the Homeschool crew!!
The last 2 weeks of Homeschooling have been almost from a dream!! The kids readily head down to the school room (we host ours in space in the basement, where I don’t have to see any of the clutter 😉 We have been at the school desk by 0900 every day, with only a couple exceptions. The attitudes have been stellar and we have had a great time. I want to bottle this sensation for later… I just might need it!
What I really loved about this week of school… we started our Monday with making a music video. Yep, you read that right, a music video. Music is a huge thing in our house, we put the iTouch on the surround sound, and we will mosh and dance away pounds, bad attitudes, cabin fever… whatever. I am trying to discover fun ways to start each school week so the attitudes stay positive for our school work. I keep threatening to share with you our love of music… so when I get all the editing done, I will post it and share with you our creative school week start up!!
Now, a bummer with schooling the last couple weeks are the sissy pencils. I didn’t buy cheapo pencils this time, and the carn-sarned things keep breaking or the lead will pop off after we sharpen them 😦 Any suggestions for pencil success would be appreciated.
So they took out the plastic spacers, tightened her cast, and slapped at bright pink cover on it. Yes, she chose the bright pink cover… so now I have to look at this neon pink thing walking around my house. Ah, the things we do for our children, eh??
I have a couple things to unload about my 120lb shadow. You all remember my tri-colored, 120lb, attention needy shadow, right??
First, my beast had an anxiety attack. Seriously. We dropped him off at our friend’s house when we were trying to rush home to see my dad before his surgery. Our dog attempted to eat his blanket, he got sick after eating his blanket, and passed large chunks of his blanket at our friend’s house. Thankfully, they are still our friends!!! But our beast apparently does not do well when he feels suddenly abandoned by us. Crazy animal.
Today (Tuesday) I am trying to locate a decently priced place to get him groomed. He needs a bath and a good brushing… I don’t have nice enough weather, a good enough hose, or the time this week to manage this myself. He got into something like sap and his under belly is caked. He is also doing a ton of shedding as the weather here goes cold/warm/cold/warm. I like my beast quite a bit, but I don’t like looking like I have fur after petting him 😉 And the sticky is really just yucky…. and he needs his nails clipped… I will NEVER allow that to be video taped. It is not pretty.
Okay, I have to share this. My cousin, whom I grew up with, is my texting buddy. He keeps me chuckling throughout the day. He works a government job in the midwest… (he is blue, I am red… politically we well 😉
With Brad Paisley playing on the iPod I think we will declare this stress free Tuesday, so no matter what we will not get worked up…
Even if I have to hide the bodies it will be stress free…
Just remember, the bodies always bloat and float to the top of the lake 😉
