Warning - Boring Post Ahead!!

We are busy, but with nothing very interesting. School is finally becoming 'normal' for MB we have not had any moments over it recently. We also have finished up the Oregon Study. We still have a few books to read if we feel like it, but basically the study is over until MB leaves for her trip (in less than 2 weeks). As filler we are just picking up a few science books and projects until the trip. Reading books about puppies and dogs and going to visit the puppies across the street every couple of days. As of last night two had their eyes open!! They are so cute at this stage, you almost want to take all of them :)

Today MB 'caught' a new pet. She got one of the Katydids that is decimating our garden. She is keeping it in a glass jar and watching it eat. It is pretty neat watching those jaws work, and they can tear through some leaves. She is feeding it the broccoli leaves because those are pretty much a lost cause.

By the way, if anyone out there is having a little too much rain for their liking, you can send some of it this way. It is much to hot/humid and dry for my liking. Although last night we had a very neat lightning storm. The way the lightning was going off, it reminded me of the cheesy, fake lightning bits in movies.

Tonight we went to a swim party for church. It was a lot of fun, although I never did make it into the water. Hubby did the Daddy thing and took them all swimming, including little EM for a bit. I blew up one of those riding floats for K, which made her happy and freed up hubby's arms. I along with 5 other mothers sat on the deck chairs and read Harry Potter. They all had older children and told me that the only time they can read the book is when their kids are otherwise entertained. My only excuse is that mine just arrived today!!

I did take the job, and have started it. It is the perfect one for me. No phone calls, no set hours. Here is the work, wordprocess and return by a specified time/day. The guy told me today that there could be more down the road if I want it. So we will have to see, it would be nice to set some money away with all the birthdays we have in December. The only drawback is I have to watch my lazy time more and really try to concentrate on what I am doing the days I have work. It is an adjustment, but we made a household adjustment with homeschooling and we will make one for this too.

That is about it.

Congratulations on the job. I wish I could find something like that. We could really use some extra money, but so far I haven't found anything that I can do at home whenever I have free time around housework and schooling.
