No field trips this week!
I can't believe I am so excited to not have a field trip. I love field trips. We were so far ahead on school days that I did not mind the "running" days. Now we are not so much ahead, still on track but no longer with lots of days to play with. I love the flexibility of homeschool, but I have to be very diligent or I will get way too loose with my days and record keeping. So far this year I am far exceededing past years in record keeping and course work in general. [Except the first six months that I homeschooled when we really completed six grades because I overworked my kids and myself like performance dogs and made us all really hate school.(except Kayla)] (Still recovering from that. Kayla wishes we could go back to it.)
Anyway, it is a calmer week so our cars have decided to break down. This should keep it all nice and chaotic. We are trying to prioritize all the things gone wrong. We have decided the slowly bursting radiator must take precedence over the slowly going out starter on the van. Also, the failing water pump on the jeep gets to cut in line in front of the failing transmission. Also, the jeep transmission gets to cut in line in front of the van transmission. We have been saving for these repairs for a while, so hopefully the money thing will all work out. (Please Heavenly FATHER!! Stretch our money!) No car payment does equal headaches because the cars are always older...but I will still choose the headaches. Hubby though has had his fill. If I caved, he would so be trading in for a new impala, or an old impala, or an extended cab truck, or a beetle. Or a 55 chevy. Or a 59 chevy. I guess you get it that hubby loves cars. Almost all cars. In fact, if it has wheels and a motor- he would buy it. Well, not a Ford or foreign car-except mustangs, beetles, mercedes. Oh never mind, he's an auto junkie. Oh wait, he loves boats too, so I guess it just needs a motor and movement.
I am off to try to catch up from the weekend!! AND there is scouts tonight after a two-week break. This means I am very prepared for the meeting. I would certainly not have a two week break and then wait until the last minute to prepare for a meeting.
