7/15/15 crunch challenge, school pictures…

written 10/10/13 – We have been talking about working on our 90 day crunch challenge. It is a sit up challenge. We start with five sit ups the first night and every day for ninety days we add five more sit-ups. So the second day we did ten and the third day we did fifteen. We were supposed to continue but instead after the first three days we took a three month break. Also the first three days were not consecutive. We do have the chart. I made a chart so that we can cross the days off as we go along. This saves us from having to remember how many sit ups to do each day. We have decided that at this rate we may be ninety years old and be doing two hundred sit-ups a night to finish the challenge.
Maggie had her school pictures last Friday, Beth has her pictures this Friday. When we get the picture forms I always know that we have made it. The kids are in school, we have school supplies, school clothes and back packs. All of the things for school have been purchased and we can all relax now.

Here are a few pictures.fighter planewaterspoutart1

4/8/15 kids in the car, and art supplies…

written 1/18/14

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted lately. I’m back.

When the kids were little we were in the car a lot. We went on a lot of adventures on the weekends and a few trips to see relatives in the summers. The kids needed to all sit in the back seat because they weren’t tall enough or weighed enough for it to be safe for them to sit up front. All three kids always wanted the window seat, no one wanted to sit in the middle and have the bump by their feet. We started by having them sit in order, William by the passenger window, Maggie in the middle and Beth on the drivers side. Our first trip was short so they rode there in this order. On the way home William moved to the middle, Maggie went to the driver’s side and Beth went from the drivers window to the passenger window. On longer trips I tried to divide the trip into thirds each got the same amount of time in the middle. The biggest problem that we had was remembering where we left off. This did cut down on a lot of fights and bad feelings in the car.

Today we are going to get Maggie’s art supplies for her art class. We printed off some of her syllabuses last night because she has new classes. Beth will probably spend the day doing math. It snowed at least two inches late last week. There was enough snow that everything is white again, but not enough that we needed to shovel to get into the driveway. We do need to shovel the sidewalk. We need to do all of our weekend jobs today.

1/18/15 race track…

written 8/25/13 – We went to the race track last night. We had just watched the movie “Seabiscuit”. In this movie the jockeys are on the horses with saddles. At the race track by us the horses pull carts and the jockeys are in the carts. Cart is probably not the correct word. It took my kids awhile to get over the fact that the jockeys were in carts. We had just finished getting the kids school supplies, so we were late. They had already run two races. We sat outside at first. It was warmer that when William and I went. All of the picnic tables were taken so we stood at the railing. After a few races we went inside. We went over to where we could see the horses in the stalls and watched them for a while. Then we went upstairs for a while to watch. The front wall is all glass to watch the racing through. They also have TVs. We could see the names of the horses. We chose which horse we liked and talked about which horse had the coolest name. After a while the kids wanted to go back outside. We saw the last two races outside. Then we took Beth’s friend home. It was a long day but we had fun.

2/23/14 Starting school, today’s schedule and calling the old church…

written 8/16/11 – Maggie went to her first day of school today. They didn’t have classes, but had standardized testing. Maybe this is placement testing. There weren’t any parents there so I came home. If there had been a chance for some parent volunteer hours, I would have stayed. The parents at her school need to get ten hours of volunteer time a year. On the first day, it is great to get a few hours. It starts the year off right. Some years I have called the office ahead and asked if they need any volunteers on the first day, but this year I wasn’t that organized. Maggie looked very comfortable with her friends.

Our turnips have sprouted.

Today we need to get William’s allergy shot and get him a calculator for school, pick up Maggie from school and get Beth some safety glasses for school.

I need to call the old church today and tell them that we are going to go to another church. I am not looking forward to calling. I need to call the Pastor and call someone from my Bible study. I don’t want to call, but if I do it today, then I can stop thinking about it.

2/21/14 Planting the garden, school supplies and a movie…

written 8/13/11 – We planted the garden today. William planted peas, Maggie planted spinach, Beth planted cauliflower and I planted turnips. Our garden is about four feet by five feet. We had some dry whole corn that the chickens wouldn’t eat. The kids spread it around the backyard. We are hoping that the birds will begin to eat it. OK, so what really happened was I asked the kids to come outside and help plant the garden. They asked if it would be vegetables. I said yes. They asked why they should help plant something that they don’t like to eat. I asked them to each pick the vegetable that they disliked the least. My hope is that if they help to plant it, they will learn to like to eat it.

We got some of the school supplies today. Maggie didn’t have a list of supplies, but she knew that she needed two more shirts and a planner. Beth had a list from two teachers and William needed lead for his pencil. We found everything at one store. If the kids get additional lists from their teachers, we will go out again when after school starts.

We went and saw the movie “Cowboys and Aliens”. It was a lot better than I thought it would be, and a bit scarier…I am a chicken… The aliens kept jumping out of nowhere.

Tomorrow the only thing that we have planned is going to church.
