    Yes you are one busy momma :)

  3. scary.  I've seen the devastation lyme disease causes...very very scary.  Keep those precious babies safe.  (Not that I'm implying you don't already!)

    Also, hurry and fix that camera!  :)

    oh I know, ticks are so yucky! Thankfully the local vet said that it is VERY rare the ticks around here carry anything scary. And oddly enough, they don't seem to bite very easily. We usually find them on us but not yet bitten.

    uggg, the camera, not sure it's worth repairing. boo-hoo! trying to figure it out. {grin}

    I love this post!

    I agree with Holly-ticks-yuck!

    What "program" do you use for school. Sorry for my lack of a better word. My brain is on freeze mode at the moment.  

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. "17 pairs of jeans washed " :)))))

  7. Hi:) I'm hoping you won't mind sharing about next years homeschool curr...if you have time. I'm homeschooling 2 kids for the first time this upcoming fall and we're still deciding what to use. Have a great weekend!

  8. ew, ticks. those things are.evil. 

  9. I stumbled across your blog last week and I've been addicted ever since.  You have an amazing family and your positivity is quite contagious.  I love your blog!!!

  10. I don't mean to scare you but ticks carry nasty diseases everywhere! I know you do your home work, and this is definitely something you should look into. If you regularity see/get bit by ticks you should be familiar with tick born disease symptoms and tick removal. I live in a area where "there are no ticks". Yeah right say that to my friends lyme and barrtonella contracted from a tick bite! Its not as rare as we all think. Sorry ticks just FREAK me out!

    On a lighter note I just love your blog! :)


Thank you for blessing me with your words!
