This is my 5 minutes of peace from my hectic world.

A Great Day
Kids feeding ducks.
The movie theatres here show kids' movies for free during the summer, so of course we took advantage of that today...it is so hot here now. We saw Clifford's Really BIG Movie. The kids really enjoyed it and were very well behaved, however an hour and a half of Clifford is really more than I can stand. We came home and I sent the kids outside before lunch and they got a chance to feed those ducks out behind our fence.
I got some more knitting done on the Toe to Toe sock, that one is for my daughter, Elisabeth, made with the yarn she dyed. I worked a little on the first baby blanket, I can't seem to knit the blankets as fast as I can knit the socks. I do have deadlines on the blankets though, the first one needs to be done by June 24th...I have a lot of work to do!!
I worked a little on my paper due for my Humanities class I'm in right now...but I keep finding ways to procrastinate. I'll have to finish the paper tomorrow and turn it in. Then only one more exam and that class is finished. I have one more class this summer and I will be finished with my AA!!!!
I'm working on reviewing French grammar in order to be ready for my classes this fall. It has been so long since I have had to write any French.
I have kept Elisabeth on a very relaxed homeschooling schedule this summer. I don't want to have to spend time reviewing in the fall. Plus it is so hot during the summer, the kids do not want to spend much time outside, and when inside all they want to do is watch TV, so what better way to keep them occupied than to educate them a little!
