Vacation Time

Let the vacation begin!  Woo! 

At the end of school today, our vacation time officially began.  My husband has been off of work since he got home Friday evening, but the kids still had school yesterday and today.  But now they are done and we have the rest of the week off.  After that is one more week of school to finish our school year and then a whole month off!  But that’s for another post.

For the rest of this week it’ll be movies – right now my husband is in an eschatological mood so he’s searching for programs that deal with that topic, but tomorrow he’ll probably be in horror movie mood.  The man loves him some horror flicks and no vacation time passes without at least one B-level horror movie.  And then he will write and write some more.  Writers have to have books to publish, you know.

It kind of feels like an extra Friday.  So we’ll put another pot of coffee on and get down to the serious business of kicking back.  Smile

Do you have any favorite movies to watch for relaxing?  What kinds of things do you like to do to when you have some free time coming up?

Daughter: Mom, what’s the longest word you know?

Mom: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Daughter: Huh?

Mom:  Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.  It was a song … from a Disney movie …

Daughter:  How do you spell it?

Mom:  Like it sounds.  (You hush, dear Reader!  It’s a long freaking word and I don’t have it memorized!)

So, now that the song is stuck in MY head, I figured I’d share the love so it can be stuck in YOUR head, too.  You’re welcome.  Winking smile

PS. Daughter made a horrified face after seeing the video.


Is over.  Just like that!  It’s back to school time for us now.

This Homeschool Mom

Time for another stroll through the drafts folder!  I found this one from a couple years ago.  My kids saw this and kind of laughed.  It is the plight of homeschoolers everywhere, although they’re still a bit young for much of the things this young lady hears. 

This is what my kids said at the time, when they were 10 and 6:

Him: What’s the capitol of Sweden?”

Her: “The capital of Sweden is S!” 

They get so silly sometimes.  🙂

Have an awesome Wednesday!
