1/27/15 guitar, science experiments, yard work and gum machines…

written 9 ! 17 ! 13 – I never should have said in a recent past post that life has settled into a routine with the kids in school and I hope to have things to write about. After posting that I immediately got writers block.

The kids are in school. It is going well so far…Maggie had her first test in guitar class and passed. She can do the scales. Outstanding!!! Beth is doing experiments in science class. They were given eggs and some other items and needed to make a case around the egg so that when they dropped it from about four feet it wouldn’t break. They did an experiment today about the moisture content of popcorn. I am not sure how they did the measuring of the moisture, but I do know that they measured the cooking oil and popped the popcorn. Beth talked a lot about the popcorn experiment. She thought that it was cool.

We are in the lull before the storm. Summer is over and the homework has started, but there isn’t a lot of homework yet. We are holding our breath waiting for the calendar to fill up.

We started the fall yard work. We cut back the front hedges, and trimmed the flowers and the bushes in the back yard. Our yard isn’t big, but it always takes longer that we think it will. It is best when William cuts the front hedges. When I cut them, they always look like eye brows.

Here is a gum machine that my kids like.

8/31/14 pop bottle rockets, exercising and volunteering…

written 2/19/12 – Maggie made a second rocket out of a two litter bottle for science class. She used more tape on the four fins and taped a paper plate onto the bottom of the bottle, which when shot is now the top. The top needed more weight. The changes worked. Her rocket shot up this time instead of to the side. She was very pleased with it.

I have started exercising. I have a friend who was talking about wanting to exercise, so we are both going to exercise each day and check in with each other. We are both trying not to be the first one to drop out.

I volunteered at a retreat at church this weekend. It was fun to serve. There were a lot of friends there that I usually don’t get to see.

8/30/14 pop bottle rockets…

written 2/15/12 – Maggie is trying to build a rocket out of an empty two liter bottle, for a school project. She taped four cardboard fins to the bottle and took it to school. They were launched in science class today. The goal was for the bottle rocket to shoot straight up. Maggie’s went off to the side. She got a new two litter bottle from her grandma today. The school will be launching rockets again tomorrow, so the kids have a chance to re-design their rockets. Maggie says that she needs to have a heavier cap. She is going to tape the four old fins onto the new bottle. She wants to make a heavier cap by taping a paper plate to the lid. She said that two kid’s rockets flew up, everyone elses went to the side.

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
