Moses is on his way to Minnesota! I guess he is going to stay in a kennel until he can find something a little more permanent. Thanks to those who are looking around for a home for him. He still needs one.
I broke a molar in half yesterday while eating a Tootsie Roll pop. It was pretty fascinating holding my very own molar and as any other homeschool mom would do, we made a lesson about it. Later Liesel informed me that the tooth fairy had left two quarters under my pillow for me! :)
John rented a rototiller and we spent the weekend plowing rows to plant a nice big garden. I used to think I wanted to marry a farmer and I married a computer programmer instead. Now I get the best of both worlds! I'm so hoping this works out because I'm looking forward to garden-fresh potatoes, onions, tomatoes, corn, and herbs this summer. Mmmmmm.
In our house the rule is, "If you eat, you work". Everybody has an after-dinner job to do, nobody is exempt except for Ava. John clears, Jude wipes down the table and chairs, Liesel puts away leftovers and wipes down counters and cabinets, Simeon sweeps, and I load the dishwasher.
Yesterday we were all surprised to look down and see Ava wiping the cabinets with no prompting! That little copycat! Here is a video for your enjoyment. Guess who has a new job!
