For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise This our grateful hymn of praise.

School Week 10


Off to another week of school.

Took Babycakes to Panda Express. Since he can't eat anything there we took a Panda bar for him. :)

BC started Monday class this month. He'll now be going to Miss Traccee's three days a week and will stay in Mrs. Johnson's Friday class hopefully through next summer.

Found his favorite food in the toy-box. Brought it right to me to play with him. :)

Not quite into his schoolwork though.

Violin lessons after school.

Later I took Mr. Great-heart to his very first Cub Scout meeting. He's very excited.

Got to make something out of leather. It was pretty cool.


A little better at school on Tuesday.

View the following in a row. See if you can tell how excited BC gets about Share-and-Tell.

Later we went to vote at the convenient polling location at the kids' school.

And even later we went to ballet...surprise.


Went to get some hairs cut after school. Everything was fine until Braniac sat in his "chair" and declared he wanted a hair cut just like Spock's. Then I cried. :(

But his comeuppance was that he had to get his hair cut close to his ears with either the clippers or the scissors, neither of which he likes at all. :D 


Got a surprise on Thursday morning. Rain.

Tut, tut. It looks like rain.

Got The Teenager a nice Alexander treatment from the violin teacher. "Funny" how these things work out, eh? ;)

Braniac's class had a field-trip to Riley's Farms in Oak Glen. 

Here you can see why I cried about the haircut. :(

Friday was parent-teacher conferences so the kids had no school. Spock and I took advantage of the lack of urgency regarding homework to take a trip to CBTL where we discovered $1 drinks. Actually, for $2 you could get a large. :)

Did I mention it rained?

Had some cardboard at McDonald's with Mr. Great-heart. Later we discovered the fries have beef in them so we won't be eating there as much. Braniac is a vegetarian and that was the only thing he liked there. I'm not going to cry about this. :)

Next book on my list of things to read.


Our new decoration.

The kids didn't have school, but BC did. He had a great day. For the first time he said his name (with prompting) and mine too (also with prompting).

Then we were off to P-T conferences where parents get to talk about their favorite awesome their kids are. ;D

Yeah, mine are pretty awesome. It's kind of a form of positive feedback for me. Homeschooling them hasn't turned them into complete failures. ;)

Braniac is really into doing his stretches right now. Unfortunately, his choice of music leaves much to be desired. ;)

Here's a glimpse of the snow on Baldy. It will probably be gone by Wednesday, then come back. Then go away...etc.

Braniac picked out a "bow-tie" from the ballet store. 

And I finally got around to putting our Air1 sticker that we picked up at Harvest Crusade on the back of the car after cleaning it on Saturday. Hopefully I'll remember I've got it on there before I try to cut somebody off on the freeway. ;)
