I'm sorry, I'm sorry...

I know, it's been for-EV-er since I've updated this thing, and I've got some pictures and video to share from some things that we did last week. I've been struggling with headaches for the last couple of weeks and so when time comes where I can have a few minutes to update, I'm usually wanting to take a nap instead.

Or do laundry.
Not that I want to do laundry, don't get me wrong. It's just an ever present THING hanging over my head. But not as badly as it used to hang over my head, since we have a full sized washer and dryer now. Whoo-EE, that does make a difference!

But I digress! We HAVE been having school, every day, just like we should. I think another thing that keeps me from posting is the lack of exiting things that we do. I mean, how boring would this blog be if it was just, "We did LLATL Lesson 5, Day 5 and learned about adjectives. Then we did math facts on the board."? You'd all fall asleep in your chairs and probably slide to the floor and bump your heads on your computer desks and I just couldn't handle that guilt!

But last week, on Wednesday, we went to the "__________'s Largest Classroom" at the fair, which was a huge amount of fun. (Note the blank I left in place of the name of the state, just in case one of you three people who read this blog is a maniacal stalker and is wanting to pinpoint my location!) This "Largest Classroom" thing is intended as a field trip for schools, but we were able to sign up as homeschoolers and get the full benefits. We didn't have to pay an entrance to the fair, plus we got to take our lunch in with us so we didn't have to pay for fair food. It's the first time I've ever been to the fair that I didn't spend a single dime!! (No rides, we're going to Silver Dollar City next weekend!) The coordinator sent a packet with all the educational things to do and see while at the fair, so we did lots and lots of that. It was great and I'm sure we'll do it again next year. I'll get the pics on my computer and post them for y'all to see.

But for now, I'm going to go and edit. That's the other thing that I do that keeps me from blogging!

OH, P.S. - I just found a fantastic blog to read! It's called Confessions of a Pioneer Woman and it'll make you want to go out and get some boots and horses...even if, like me, you have no experience with those things WHATSOEVER!

I've been reading Pioneer Woman for a while. She is a great photographer...her place is awesome, so she has really good stuff to photograph. I do get tired of the ongoing story of her and her husband, but I just skip that. She has a huge blog audience!
