Lists...I love lists!

It's been so beautiful here in my part of the world. We love to be outside as long as there is shade. Yesterday we even home schooled outside and probably did more then I actually thought we would.

Mahala didn't make it through her gym practice. Over the weekend she feel on her knee pretty hard while doing handstands. We were told to keep it on ice for a few days. So, next week we will have to be at the gym twice as long as usual because she had to miss this week. Yeah for blogging, I'll me able to catch up on my blog reading in between bar routines and floor exercises.
Today I started my yearly summer list. I like to write down what things, both fun and educational I would like us to do as a family each summer. I know that sentence didn't make sense, but whatever! :-) I usually start in April and plan into September when school starts. And then around that time I start my Fall/Holiday list, which is Oct- Jan. Feb and March are free for all Months I guess. HA HA HA Anyway, I love lists. I have lists for everything. Grocery lists, packing lists, lists for ingredients, lists of what canned goods I have on hand. I like to have lists to start my day and I write a list at the end of my day. One of the things I am thankful for and one that starts my next day.

Also, we are winding down our school year. I like to make sure all the main subjects are covered by the end of May. This way the first 2 weeks in June are easy. We are doing great as far as total work completed, but there are a few things we need to be complete in my mind. One thing is another research report. Skylar is starting his final research paper tomorrow. He is going to be diving into Carbon Foot printing. I'm excited to see what he finds and how in depth he searches into it. I'll keep everyone updated. Mahala hasn't chosen her topic yet, I may need to lead her to it. :-)
We are looking for books to read this summer. We have chosen a few people we would like to learn more about. Helen Keller, Rosa Parks, Neil Armstrong, just to name a few. If you think of some great people we should add or one of your favorite books let me know.


  1. I love lists too! they make me so happy and it's even more fun to cross stuff off. It gives you such a feeling of accomplishment. I'm glad you had a productive and fun day outside :)

  2. I like lists too. There is such a great feeling when everything is crossed off.
