We had a pretty low key fourth.  We grilled out and then shot off some cheap fireworks in the street.  There were tons of real fireworks going off all around us, so we got to enjoy the show from our front yard!

Well, not much here except for summer.  Most moms look forward to the summer since things are less hectic, but I am not one of those moms.  It’s hard to go anywhere with all 3 kids, so we spend most of our days trapped at home.  So far this summer has been great since Jason’s grandmother was here for 3 weeks and the day she left, my dad came to town but will be leaving on Thursday. :(  So I guess the reality of my summer hasn’t sunk in just yet.

So I got the kids pictures done at Wal*Mart and was really impressed with the quality and price.  These are Miles’ first pictures and since I homeschool Kalliope, these are her “school pictures”.  Zane’s pictures never come out well, so I got them all done and couldn’t be happier.  I will probably not blog much throughout the summer, because I frankly don’t see much exciting things happening, but you never know!!!

No longer do you have to stress about missing an important part of a great movie.  Check out to know exactly when are the best times to pee, what happens during that time, and how long you have until you need to be back.

Thanks, Jen.

I’m in the process of working on a blog post that’s going to be pretty long.  It’s pretty in depth and I’m trying to get all my thoughts down and then do some editing to shorten it up.  Hopefully I’ll get it up in the next few days.  God has been doing a great work in my heart and I can’t wait to share it with you all!

A couple of weeks ago, Kalliope and I had a great time at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC with a group of fellow homeschoolers.  We arrived on Friday evening, April 17th and got 4 behind the scene tours.  Then we camped out on the auditorium room floor (thank, Lisa, for the air mattress!) and awoke the next morning for 1 more tour.  Then we spent half the day there before heading back home.  The most exciting tour was going into the elephant barn where they sleep at night.  We were lined up against the wall only 8 ft. from the edge of the cages they slept in!  It was such a memorable and educational experience for both of us, one we both won’t soon forget!

This is such a sweet story.  We could all take a lesson from these two!  Thanks, Jen, for sharing!
