groove it

since school started for us:
  • boo started an extensive homeschooling preschool lesson book.  she LOVES it.  so far, she's been my first to love education. 
  • trimmed 3overgrown rose bushes and removed (by hand) 1 russian olive tree.
  • received some produce from the neighbor on the other side of the fence...  i think it was a literal example of an immediate visual for the fruits of my labor to cutting down the overgrown shrubbery since that overgrown shrubbery was hiding that neighbor from us.
  • jones has been home sick 5 days.  he was diagnosed w/ a double ear infection the first 2 days absence, and the second 3 days he visited the ER and was almost admitted to the hospital for low oxygen level...
  • we've missed the bus twice.
  • shredded up a zucchini that was about as long as boo's leg and as thick as... mine.  well, not quite THAT thick!  maybe my calves.
  • baked approximately a dozen loaves of chocolate z bread, and a carol coate zucchini cake.
  • sold our beloved suburvan...  :( & :)
  • got a costco membership, FINALLY.
  • learned how to text
  • lost my crock pot lid
  • found my crock pot lid
  • buttercup is completely mobile.  she rolls over, scoots, sits up, scoots, crawls, an sits up from laying down as well as vice verse. she hasn't started walking yet, but she's trying to learn how to pull up on things.
  • held 2 successful PTA meetings w/o dying of over-stress.
  • compiled a whole school's student information into an excel database in hopes to finish up a school's student directory. 
  • started and finished an 8-week study on Nehemiah
it seems we're getting in the groove of a back-2-school routine...

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
