OK, y'all.

I need some help. We finish school next Friday, and I need to make a summer plan. I mean, other than going to the pool, the library, and spending a lot of time reading to my little ones. What do you guys do? Modified school? Drop it completely? Organizing tasks that you can't get done during the school year? Keep up with math only? What? I feel like the days go more smoothly with a PLAN, you know? So, if you've got a plan, I'd love to hear about it. Pretty please?!?

Ahoy there, Matey!

A few weeks ago my mom and grandmother were in town. They took all the kids to McDonald's and got each of them a Happy Meal (of course! what are grandparents for?). I guess "Pirates of the Carribean 3" is the latest, greatest, because all the toys were pirate-y (I know, that's not a word...). Seth's toy was a pirate do-rag with a dangley golden earring. I put it on him just for kicks, assuming he'd yank it off and throw it to the ground, just as he'd been trying to do all winter with his hats. However, it was a HIT! He must've know he looked big and bad in it (and when you're the youngest of five, I guess you need whatever clout you can get).

In other news, I just last night, ordered (hopefully) ALL my school books for next year! Last year, with Seth being a baby and all, I didn't order until...shall I admit it? August, and it was hanging over my head all summer. This year, I tried to get my act togther a little earlier. Free shipping is a nice incentive, 'cause books are HEAVY. I think we saved about $30-$40. So Woohoo! Bring on the summer vacation!
