Decision Made

Well, I have been going back and forth on when we would be coming home from the beach for the fall. And have decided that Friday will be the day! Our OC friends Joanna and Spirit are planning a trip up to the Baltimore Aquarium and Port Discovery (it is free to homeschoolers 1-3 on Fridays in September), so we will go with them and then head home to Virginia after we are done.

Jeff took the cats and the guinea pigs this weekend so that we don’t have to worry about getting them home. For which I am very greatful as I know that it took some sacrifice on his part. (Have I mentioned that he is not a big pet person?). What he won’t do for his family!

So I am packing up things this week and hoping that the weather gets better for a day or two at least before we go (it is raining now!). Would have preferred a beautiful week that made it hard to leave…but maybe this is better.

Feeling sad over Steve Irwin’s death. Jason was such a huge fan for awhile. I know that some people feel that we should not be surprised, that he tempted death with his stunts. However, I feel that he genuinely enjoyed and loved what he did. We all should be so lucky.


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    How lovely for you to be able to spend time at the shore. It sounds like a wonderful way to spend the summer.

  2. You are right about Irwin, I think. He seemed so happy and thrilled in all of his TV appearances, he must have loved what he was doing. His shows have helped so many kids learn to like nature and the outdoors. It’s a loss for all of us.

  3. I hope the move back goes smoothly!
