I'm afraid it's here- I've reached the beached whale stage. It's been 5 years since my last baby, so I'd forgotten about this little part at the end. Well, it's all coming back. I'm glad Joel is so accommodating to my predicament- he's the best! He helps me turn over in bed at night like an oversized helpless turkey on a spit..........that's not a pretty picture is it? Maybe I'll change the subject.
On a happier note- we've started school back up- Yeehaw! Latin phrases, geography, literature.....lots of fun! I need to get our new math curriculum's CDs loaded on the computer so the kids can try it out. We've always done Saxon math in the past, but we are doing a new thing- Teaching Textbooks. I'll let you know how we like it.
Last week our family delivered 2,200 phone books around town! We did this little fund raising project to help Hailey and Taylor raise money for their clogging studio's trip to Hawaii next summer. Rocky Top Cloggers will perform at the Polynesian Cultural Center, participate in an international dance festival, dance in a parade, and of course do some sightseeing and playing at the beach. It will be such a great experience for them! Our kids have never even seen an ocean before, in fact- they haven't seen Yellowstone Park and it's only a few hours away- poor deprived children. What kind of pathetic parents are we anyway? :-) So, in the mean time, we have a lot of work ahead of us to help them earn enough for the trip.
