Michael's Turn

Jon's been squirrel hunting twice now with Mason so today was Michael's turn. He & Clay were supposed to get up & go early this morning, but neither one of them got up in time. Ha! We all know what a morning person Clay is! Instead they went this evening after supper. Here's what he came home with! Way to go, Dude!!Not alot going on today......just 'stuff' around the house. Clay spent most of the day over at Mason's helping him work on his tractor. I did some laundry & then spent some time online looking at math curriculum trying to decide what I wanted to do with Ashley & Jon this year. Was all set to go with the Saxon 8/7 & algebra 1/2 until another homeschooling friend suggested Life of Fred (LOF) math books. I had never heard of these before, but they are literature-based & from what I read, seem really interesting. Now I'm kind of leaning in that direction. Hmmmmm...what to do, what to do? After my online searching, I cleaned out some of the desk drawers & our book shelf in the kitchen. Put some more old workbooks away & bagged up some others to take to Sarah. Also pulled some left-over pages from last year's workbooks & set them aside for some review when we start back. Little by little I'm getting there. In the midst of all this cleaning & searching, I baked some brownies for us & a batch to take to Chris & his room-mates tomorrow. Have I mentioned that he's meeting me for lunch tomorrow at Chickfila & I'm SO exicted to see him & sit down & visit & catch up on how things are going for him?!

I hope you have enough brownies for all of us. ;)
He did great with the squirrles. You have some great hunters there - but me, I will be content just hunting for those brownies.
