I am so behind on blogging. Frankly, there have just been other more important things that have needed to be done. We start school on Monday and I have been working hard on lesson plans, organizing manipulatives, etc. Sarah starts 3rd grade with the BJU online classes and Benjamin starts K5. I will be using Saxon Math and Explode the Code with him as well as some other little things to help with reading. Rachel will be sitting in on Benjamin's lessons and will probably pick up quite a bit from that. She is excited about doing "school" (to her that means having her own pencil box and workbook!).
Garth and I took a long weekend alone (with the baby) back in upstate New York recently. While there, we got this picture that we intended to take when we lived there and just never got around to it. This sign indicates the name of the chain of funeral homes there. It is the family name of the owners, but is so hilarious to us!
