This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 8th year of homeschooling using a Classical approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Random 5 on Friday ~ August 8th

1 ~ Micah had an immunization on Wednesday. Early Thursday morning he awoke with a fever of 101.5. I rummaged through the house at 3AM searching for the rectal thermometer and Children’s Tylenol. I really dislike immunizations. Thankfully my boy was back to his normal happy self by Thursday evening.

2 ~ we start school on the 18th. I am not fully prepared yet, but hope to be by Thursday of next week. I ordered our school supplies online from Amazon this week. They arrived today so this weekend I plan to log in our new books into the book catalog and also color coordinate, dot, the books.

3 ~ Montana went to a playdate this afternoon and stayed for dinner. She raved and raved about the mashed potatoes    Mrs. Meshel made for dinner. I think I need to get the recipe because she normally does not eat potatoes at home :-)

4 ~ eating “cleanly” for the last 12 days has helped me isolate what makes Micah’s belly hurt. I have been sporting a lovely  Eau de Vomit smell lately, but I have narrowed down that watermelon, cantaloupe, and pineapple don't do well for his belly. Sigh! I love each of those fruits, but I can refrain from eating them until later.

5 ~ we started our gymnastics carpool today with another family, hooray! As much as I love driving to and from the gym I won’t be driving daily next week.  After next week I will be back to daily driving until school schedule practices start after Labor Day.

That’s my randomness for the day, do you have anything to share? Check out what others have to say over at The Pebble Pond.
