That is all i have for now. I really need to take more pictures. i realize that in this digital age, we no longer take video or print pictures here. So I need to get an external hard drive for photo storage and must start getting the old 8mm on dvd so we can preserve the memories! I so love blogging as a photo album! It is so easy!

Well, I haven't posted lately or uploaded pictures because we have been very busy! Since we spent so much time this past spring involved in the Annie production, we got really behind on schoolwork so we are daily still doing math with the two oldest, and math and language arts with Elizabeth. But we are also planning for next years' CHEFS activities and friday school, bowling, swimming, cleaning, visiting, and other things. Today I just need a nap.
All that aside, we invested in a Clearplay system which is a fabulous little product and worth every penny! Now we can view more movies that might pertain to our studies. We also invested in a professional art program for Emily and it is wonderful! We resolved our issues between Rosetta Stone and Vista, and have gotten some sewing done. Truly we are about ready for school to start in late August, and the kids will still be fresh since they have kept up with studies all summer!
But now, on to the chores, and that nap....maybe.
