Well, Hi There
I wanted to pop in real quick and just say Hi. I thought life would slow down a little this week, but alas, it has not.

The carnival was a huge success but it has taken me a couple of days to recuperate. I feel like I just want to go lay on a beach for a few days. I really don't know why others feel this is so unreasonable?

Anyway, life has been busy again this week with science fair projects needing to be completed, baseball games, and trying to clean up my house so you can actually walk through the front door.

Tyler (14) hasn't been feeling very well and the doctor thinks he may have a kidney stone. Prayers would be appreciated. They have done all kinds of tests and we are waiting for results hopefully today.

Lastly, many of you may have heard about the ridiculous decision passed down last week by one of the courts in California declaring home schooling to be illegal. The courts in California are known to be some of the most liberal in this country and once again they are trying to take away a parents right to raise THEIR children the way they chose.

We are not a homeschooling family but I take great offense to a court telling me I can or can't do something for my own children. If you feel the same way will you please click here and sign the petition to get this decision over turned?

I think most of us agree that as parents we should have the right to make decisions we feel are best for our children and family without the government sticking its neck into our business. This decision really infuriates me.

Well, now that I have said hello and let off some steam I must pack up to go to the laundry mat. My dryer decided to go on strike and I must have a dozen loads that need to be washed.

Don't you wish you were me?

Here's a pic of Paige the other day. Laying by the pool with her nose in a book.

My dream come true. I can't wait for summer.

I hadn't heard that about CA and homeschooling. How ridiculous.

I have had kidney stones before so I know how painful they can be. I hope that this gets all figured out and resolved.

The whole illegal homeschooling thing has been big news amongst all my homeschool email lists here in Texas. I think we have the absolute best homeschooling laws in the country, and I really hope it stays that way!

And you know I have the kidney stones too. I'll pray for your boy! I have some information for you. If you want it, we can email :)

I'm praying for Tyler. Let us know what you find out. Ouch.

No fair. We still have snow on the ground. I wish I could be poolside with my nose in a book!
