I Wonder What they have been up to...?

We said good-bye to David's Pathfinder tonight...he traded it in for a "summer car"...

Try to get four children in line...

Not on your life...

Surprise!

Where I do brain arobics...

This is the entrance to the bathrooms at Jungle Jim's...very odd feeling let me tell you..
Your brain is trained to think certain things when you open this type of door and everything
is not as expected...hilarious!

I absolutely love spring!!!
Thanks to the previous "owners", we enjoy these tulips year after year.



I thought the pics were going to post last...instead the last shall be first and the first last..



Well now, I decided to check this blog to see if anything new had happened since the last time I posted and to my astonishment a month and a day has passed!!

Where in the world have I been and exactly what have I been doing for an entire month? In no particular order and really for my own journaling purposes I shall review the last thirty something days...

...another class is completed at Cincinnati Christian University for a total of...drum roll...12 hours!! At this rate I'll graduate about 2015 - literally!

Classes at GBS and Aldersgate and Mt. Auburn Academy (thought that sounded really official) continue...

IHC has come and gone...enjoyed WOW for the first time and heard President Avery deliver a powerful and challenging message Wednesday night...

VIP Day has come and gone...great day by the way!!...

The Midwest Homeschool Convention has come and gone....loved it...learned more about dyslexia, budgeting, writing in high school, ways to teach grammar, and found some great deals for curriculum...

Easter with it's celebrations and activities...this year I watched The Passion on Good Friday and for the first time...for the very visual person that I am, it made such a difference in my perspective of Calvary. The Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake breakfast was well attended and a bright spot...

Let's see...there's been a visit to Jungle Jim's with a friend, an evening spent at the emergency room with a student, window shopping with my daughters, and the annual GBS Lock-in - Dave and I made it until 5:00 AM -- CRAZY!!
JCPenney took a huge chunk of change in exchange for Dave and I both sporting bi-focals...

The basement of 520 Channing is now lookin' pretty good for a change...family: the basement pics are for you - I know, get over the shock -- it feels delicious to walk down there!...in fact you should have seen the entire house for the day of doom -- every 5 years the GBS house insurance people come around and take pics of important stuff (mantles, stained glass windows, etc) in your house. Along with them comes maintenance to see what needs fixed and some of the housing committee ---talk about house cleaning incentives!!!! You should have seen this place my dear family and close friends...I would have impressed even you!!!

Enough for one night...until the next month...maybe I'll post from Romania!
