The following photo has nothing to do with this post. He is for sale. I want him. I was told, no way. I am sure we will be discussing alpacas again. LOL
Things You Learn Over Spring Break
I know you are thinking, Cheryl home-schools, so what could possibly be the big deal?! Yes, I do home school, but spring break means the other grands are here, the distant cousins from across the pasture are here, and occasionally even a cousin’s cousin shows up!
“It’s too hot to play outside.”
*Really?! It’s 60 degrees. What will you do come August?*
“Why do I have to carry out the trash? So & so doesn’t have too!”
*Because I said and because So & so doesn’t live here.*
“Can I have another juice box?”
*Not right now.*
“Why, Elijah got a juice?”
*It’s his first. You’ve had three!”
“But I’m thirsty.”
*Drink some water.”
“What are we having for – breakfast? – lunch? – supper?”
“But I’m hungry!”
And to think, I was looking forward to summer.
The nice little guy showed up with the census form today. Looking over the questions, it asks how many people live in your house as of April 1st? *Only one. I plan on kicking everyone else out!* (I can always blame it on April Fools.)
While I was looking over the census form, the herd of kids took my baking soda and vinegar outside to pour into the volcanoes they made in the sand. That wasn’t enough. I caught them when they came back for some red food coloring!
With the new moon and it now on the increase, we had another baby goat. A little buck. So far this season we have 2 does, 3 bucks. I read somewhere, if you wanted more does to add vinegar to the buck’s drinking water. We may have to try that next year. Wonder if this has any scientific basis?
I learned something amazing today. Almond Bark contains neither almonds nor barks. Talk amongst yourselves...
And while you are talking among yourselves, go by Mrs. 4444 for more Friday Fragments. Then head over to checkout the cool Leftovers at Sippy Cups Are Not For Starbucks.
It is also New Friend Friday at The Girl Creative.....go make some friends!
Have a great weekend!
