My Saturday

The curriculum fair was a great experience. I spent hours flipping through books, buying some. (My Amazon Wishlist has grown significantly.) The whole thing didn't leave me feeling overwhelmed and weighed down as I had expected, but excited...and a little more ready.

Some things I bought...

For Hannah

For Will

My other fun Saturday event...
My dear friend Suzanne is about to have her fourth. She has 3 boys (7, 5, 3) and is due to have a GIRL mid-May. Her sister and I sensed her stress about the work involved in turning the rust-colored study into the baby girl's nursery. Being a busy mom with no specific plans for the room, she gladly gave us the project when we asked for it. Then her husband gave us a budget of $200 and primed the room for us. A few Saturdays ago, we went shopping for curtains/rod, bedding, a little lamp, some wall hooks, etc.. Last night (after spending all day with my 9 month pregnant friend at the curriculum fair!), her sister and I closed ourselves in the room and painted. Green and Pink and Daisies! Monday night we will pull it all together. I'll post a picture of the final product. A big thank you to my gracious husband for letting me have the whole day to play while he shuttled kids to birthday parties and dealt with naplessness.


  1. My son will be in 2nd grade this year and I am almost the same curriculum. This will be our first year using Saxon, so hopefully it will go well.

    Love your blog!
