It's been wonderful here, weather-wise. We've had highs in the low 90s these past few days. It's so nice and cool. I know you Northerners probably think I'm crazy, but when the temperature has been in the 100s for days on end, 93 is downright cool.
I've been so forgetful lately. The pulmonology office called today. The younger two girls have an appointment coming up. Tomorrow. At 9:00 am. In Austin. Sigh.
Each year I feel the need to do lessons plans, but am not ever able to get going on them. This year is the same but I'm having a bit of luck in history plans. We will have a set of plans for history this year. For the other subjects, like math, we just go on to the next thing in the book. I think I want to get it all down on paper though. I'll let you know.
iCal. I want to incorporate it more into our lives. I like the free-form days that we have but I also want a sort of routine down. After I typed that I realize we really don't have real free-form days as our days are ruled by therapy appointments and ballet classes. Elizabeth Foss has some links to a couple of blog posts from people who really use iCal quite well.
Birthday season is over as soon as I cook Sister's birthday meal today. Why today? Well, Honey was invited to go to a baseball game last night and wouldn't have been there. Sister agreed to wait on her birthday dinner until tonight. With this cold that I still can't kick, birthday season (2 birthdays in a 5 day span which resulted in several cakes and parties), it's been rough.
Well, I've got to go. Pumpkin asked me to give her one push on the swings. Since it's not too hot, the kids are playing outside again.
