As the school year comes to an end, and I think about all that has gone into this year, I cringe.  This may rate as my all time least favorite year.

We started school the day after Labor Day with our homeschool co-op. It was great.  A chance to reconnect with friends and begin new textbooks.  The next day we got started at the kitchen table eagerly with our new books.  And then, the lake decided to intrude into our home, our school year and our peaceful life once again.











As I type, it is raining.  The spillway is high.  Hopefully the rain gets no stronger.  I hate living in fear of rain.  That is why we bought a piece of property.


That is why Dad has been working 60+ hours each week.

That is why Mom has gone slowly crazy and put the three youngest kids in public school.

Oh wow. I'm so out of the loop. Sorry you had all the yuck. Glad you have a cool new house. Have you moved I yet? How did public school go?
