And we're back

Yippee!! We're back in our own home, I'm on my own computer, watching the girls swim in our own pool, drinking water from my own fridge. Yep, life is good.

As you can imagine, I'm tired! I've got a zillion things to catch up on and school stuff to think about. I've decided to hold off on the full school program for a couple of weeks pending a decision about curriculum. Instead, we're going to dive into a study of North Carolina with an intensive week or two of concentrated study, then shorter lessons throughout the year complete with field trips around the state. Doesn't that sound fun? I'm hoping to convince some of our homeschool friends to join us. We also need to work on handwriting since K's cursive is beautiful, but her printing is sad, sad, sad. So we'll be doing writing starting Monday and pick up the state studies on the next Monday.

Today's funny quote from our trip is brought to you courtesy of L.

We were hiking on a short trail and in spite of having explained hiking and what we were doing a million times, L was still confused.

L: "Are we going somewhere? Where are we going?"
Me: "We're going to the waterfall."
L: "Why?"
Me: "To see it, because it's beautiful."
L: (jumping up and down in excitement with stars in her eyes) "Is it PINK?!?"
