12/12/14 tent…

written 4/27/13 – We went outside to put up the tent. Beth had homework and stayed in the house. William, Maggie and I took the tent outside. We figured out that the first two poles that were assembled were not part of the frame of the main tent, but part of the two side rooms. That made a big difference. Most of the poles we could figure out from the directions where they went, some took more looking to find sleeves that were the correct length to put them into. William always does a safety test on everything for us. The tent is no different. When it was assembled William went outside of the tent to hold the poles and he called out “earthquake” and then he shook the tent. I am happy to report that the tent withstood the shaking and is safe for us to use. As soon as school is out, we can go camping.


12/8/14 tent, math and tests…

written 4/18/13 – We are going to put up our tent tomorrow. We are going to make s’mores when we are done.  We like the Hershey’s milk chocolate.  The weather is so nice today. I wish that we could go camping this weekend.
Beth has started doing her math homework at home on the computer again. We were having problems, the websites wouldn’t load. The math program is called Aleks. They do all of the work on the computer and can go at their own pace.
Maggie needs to take a test for school next week at the college, it must be outside of the normal school day because she was telling me that we need to schedule it.


12/7/14 Boston…tents…

written 4/15/13 – Today two bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon. At least three people were killed. They say that it looks like a terrorist attack. It is so hard to believe, things like this don’t happen in the US. We have such an unnoticed peace. We have a peaceful country and have few restrictions. When this happens, I am just shaken. How do we defend our kids? Where is it safe to be? I am glad that God watches over us. He can be every where at once.
We bough a new tent today!!! It is a six to seven man tent with three rooms. I found it on Craig’s list and it was being sold by a resale shop by my house. We can put it together in the living room. We will need to check the measurements to see if it will fit in the living room.


12/6/14 the tent…

written 4/8/13 – Beth put the tent away last night. The living room seems so large. It is like at Christmas time when the tree is put away and the room is huge for a week. I don’t think that the tent will work. It is a four person tent and we have four people to go in it. We really need a bigger tent. It is large enough for us, but we won’t be able to put anything in the tent with us at night. We can’t go camping until all of the kids are out of school, so we still have some time to find another tent.


12/5/14 tent..

written 4/6/13 – We got a tent. It should sleep four. We bought it from Craig’s List. The girls went with me to buy it.  The tent was never used outside. The family had put it together in their living room and then moved and left it with relatives. We brought it home and started to put it together. The directions said to put it together at home before trying to put it together at a campsite. It is a four person, summer tent. We put it up in the living room. The directions were in the carrying bag, and we took turns reading them. There were four poles, each one held together by a bungee cord inside the poles. There were also some extra pole pieces. The first two poles went in easily. We could figure out where they should be placed, the last two poles took more time put on the tent. The tent has a rain cover. It took a long time to figure which way the cover went. We kept flipping it over and turning it around. The confusion is that the tent has two doors and the cover has one door. When we got it together, the door on the cover was not matched with either door on the tent. It is OK. We can still get into the tent, it just made it confusing putting it together. We had the cat in the tent for a while. She is not sure if she likes the tent.
We will need a bigger tent. A four person tent will hold four people, but there is no room for any gear. We can look for a six or eight person tent.
We had diner in the tent and set up the VCR outside of the tent to watch movies. We want to go camping as soon as it is warmer at night. The kids are excited about camping. We have the tent still set up in the living room. We will need to take it down on Sunday… since we have school the next day.
We are not sure which campsite to try first.


12/4/14 tents…

written 4/4/13 – I called on tents from Craig’s list today. We are going to see one tent on Friday. I am very excited. I also called two camp sites to get some information. When we go to look at the tent, am going to ask that it be set up for us so that we can see that all of the pieces are there. We are really excited about camping. We have started to talk about what activities we want to do while we are there, what food we should take…everyone is excited and is adding into the conversation. This has been a good way to pull us all together as a family. Hopefully the tent that we see on Friday will be a good choice for us. We want to wait until it is a little warmer before we go tenting, but we are having fun making plans.

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.
