Spoons, School and a little fun....

Just a quick drop in to let ya know I'm still livin'....albeit with a little less time on my hands for much in the way of bloggin'. That doesn't mean I don't read my usuals or think of you lot...it just means that I forgot how tough some of these college courses can be (hello, 1400 word papers on something I don't really care about every other week) AND top it off with the whole restarting with the edumacationating of the screamers here at home....fun all around!

Really, it is. The oldest is one happy fella and is breezing through a lot of 1st grade work (proud, bragging momma alert). It's been an easier transition back than we thought. Doesn't hurt that the boy is obsessed with all things scientific...so we are focusing on a bit of Nature Studies (i.e. we walk around the woods and momma points out stuff and answers questions).

That is where the 'spoons' part comes in...you might remember that we have a huge amount of persimmon trees around these parts...the oldest decided to snap up about ten of these orange beauties...Momma decided to do a little cutting and guess what? Go on...guess!! Ten spoons, all lined up in a row...Momma's hoping that it holds true and we have a nice, super snowy winter. Heck, with the quick change in weather round here lately (summer to fall in something like 4 hours, lol) I'm thinking this winter is going to be interesting anyway!!

Glad to hear from you! Was a little worried that the PTB from the school came and dragged you off to re-edujmacate you! ;)

You lost me with the persimmon and spoons thingy, what is that?

Screamers come first! Drop a line every couple weeks and we'll know y'all are ok....

Heh heh, "verification" word was "kings". Y'all are kings of your domain. Take care Momma!

Jen~ supposedly if you cut a persimmon open and see a spoon (inside the persimmon btw...not just layin' about all willy nilly) it fortells you'll be doin' a lot of snow shoveling come winter.
