I am turning into slacker blogger

I KNEW I wouldn't be reliable at this! It's not because we haven't been doing anything and it's not because I don't have enough time. I am just a slacker blogger.
I won't try to catch up. I will just tell you what we have done today.
The girls have also been begging to start school so we did that yesterday. They are working on geography.
Last night, I snuck out to the Dollar Tree and bought some things to hide in the backyard (and a Snickers bar for Ken).
This morning I went out in the backyard and hid the three things and wrote down how many steps and the cardinal directions.
Then I invited my Pirate Explorers out....

Carefully counting out mama-sized Pirate steps (it took a few minutes to explain that pirates didn't walk heel to toe in size 13 little girl shoes :p)

The first Booty is found!

You're such a fun homeschooling mom, I hope I can be half that great when Raemi gets old enough for me to start homeschooling her!!!
