This is the first entry for the new blog here at Blogger. Perhaps this is a better way for friends and family to keep up with our busy family.
Speaking of busy, today is what I would term "partially busy." Everyday in a homeschooling household is busy, almost frenetic at times! However, this day will allow for some flexibility.
My sons are having a buddy over. They will play every imaginable sport under the sun while trying to elude the smaller children (laugh!). I may even be generous and allow them 1 hour on the X-Box 360.
The X-Box 360 can be a blessing and a bane! My boys become completely unaware of their surroundings while engaged in gameplaying. We keep their time on that contraption very limited. It also makes a great DVD player!
Our DVD player is on the fritz, so I use the X-Box 360. I'm currently viewing Michael Palin's "Himalaya" series by the BBC. He is one of my favorite personalities! British humor and great scenery, those are a few of my favorite things. Seeing so many cultures and traditions is also something of great interest to me.
Well, it is time for lunch. I must round up the hungry troops and get them fed. We are having leftovers from last night's dinner, a hamburger stew. I think I am the queen of ground beef meals!
