Hey ya'll, I didn't die we are still around just too busy for words. We are using a new curriculum this year and it is eating ALL of my free time...or perhaps it is because I have more kids to instruct in the 3 R's...who knows....just it all equals NO TIME!
Anyway I just wanted to link to these 2 posts from another blog I try to read...most of the time this blog is too cerebral and prolific for me to keep up with, but I caught these 2 posts and I loved them.
This one puts into words what I have felt for a long time...however, that being said, a good love story will always put a smile on my face!
The next link is a blog post about singing from the same blog. Our family sings in the car, before bed at night, and when we are feeling goofy and we really love it. In old, old home tapes (no video - only sound) I remember hearing my great-grandmother singing with the other women while making dinner. They were singing, "Way Over the Swanee River". It sounded like they were having a grand time! Good memories!
I'm going to try to make my sister spontaneously sing while making Thanksgiving dinner, she will probably just roll her eyes.
However, if my CA brothers were here they would all sing off key and different songs at the same time....they particularly like this song by Collin Raye(the lyrics go against the first post I linked too! Sucker for a love story - told ya):
all you can really understand when they are singing is "blah, blah, blah, LITTLE ROCK!" It is great... miss you guys!
