    Default School starting soon.

    Just a reminder to everyone... we have now hit August.. (where did the days go?")... School will be starting soon and we all need to be watching out for the li'l bumpkins and the not so aware teens crossing roads & coming out between cars. Just a little reminder to put in the front of your thoughts while driving out there.

    Don't remind me! Pool-time is almost over!

    I'm putting Sarah's curriculum into an online program this year. I have already entered two of her classes, but still have six more to go before we start school. A lot of work involved in homeschooling, but worth it.

    I really admire those who can homeschool... my sister did it... but me... now I would come up with reasons why doing something else would be more FUN!! They wouldn't learn anything!! I have the attention span of a squirrel and the memory of a goldfish... so... that doesn't work to try to homeschool... I would forget too much!! LOL

    Yeah all of those little "Flag Pullers" will be roaming the streets again. Sometimes I wish they were all home schooled!

    Sometimes I think there are more schools than kids where I work. I work in the city so all the kids walk to school(no buses) I try to avoid certain areas between 7-8am and 3-4pm.

    At least now I won't really have to worry about them bloodsuckers between 9 and 3 for awhile. (and yes I have a kid in school)

    Many schools are starting today... if they have not already in your areas... Be safe and watch out for them! Of course now I can't take my "back roads" in... as then I will get held up by the buses.... but on the bright side... don't have my daughter sitting at home "bored"...

    Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
