After many many many years of trying to get a halfway decent family portrait without hiring a professional photographer, but instead using the timer:  We have succeeded!  At least I think that we did a good job.  Not only did we only take 3 photos, but 2 of them are great and everyone is looking at the camera smiling.  It is a miracle I tell you.  I think that it is because we took the photo at the top of the "mountain" that we hiked on Mother's day.  My boys were really trying to please me.

Look at the 2 masterpieces that we got and please let me know which is your favorite.

P.S.  Don't forget to come to our yard sale this Friday and Saturday in Leeds at 9 AM.

Life Lessons

Learning as a part of life is what being a homeschooler is all about.  Word problems have nothing on us.  We live the problems, and solve them out of necessity.

What better way to learn to count money and give change than to do it?  So... Eli and his friend Ethan are having a yard sale.  Obviously, us moms and siblings are helping, but this is their venture.  They will label things, set them out, sell them, and give change. So, come on over to Leeds less than a mile off of Rt 202 and get some good bargains.

We will also be there representing our farm DozenAcre and will have breads, granola, cookies, and lunch and breakfast items for sale.  So please plan to come visit, eat, peruse, and see what types of crazy things we homeschoolers do!
