I know I have been suspiciously absent from the blogosphere. All is still well here, if not a little busy some days, and well, just plain lazy on others! (All of my laundry is done... does that count?)
Plans are full speed for the trip to The Big Apple. We have 30 teens vs. 7 adult chaperons. I use the vs. because it seems a little stacked on the side of the students. We are being optimistic here, though... and begging for prayer! The week should be, to say the least, very interesting! I am the representing "Mom" of the group. This should prove very educational for all, what with my natural giftedness in nurturing and mothering skills. (The fact that we have older children who put on a front of being fairly well and adjusted is certainly a testament to my amazing husband!!)
Speaking of Dan...he is also full speed ahead experimenting with bio-diesel. We now have a large metal can, an industrial blending attachment for a very powerful motor, and a small and unsuspecting remote airplane engine in which to test the concoction of used Olive Garden frying oil, lye, and some wood alcohol.
I really think we need to step up the replacement value on the renters insurance.
"So would this policy cover accidents? Any minor explosions or chemical mishaps would not otherwise negate the policy, would it?!" ... " OH why, you ask? We are a home schooling family. Yes, that's it!"
Dan also met with Dr. Bob... so NSBI is looking like completion will be May '09. Do you all think we should have a combined graduation party for Olivia and Dan? Not so sure I would have liked to share my party with my dad... oh yeah, I didn't have a graduation party. Never mind my thoughts on it... (Wow! I thought I was all good with that by now! ) HA!
I will end for now. I am sure you are thinking "Jan do us the favor and if the week proves to be like the past one please just don't blog... we will all be better off." Maybe I will just post with the title "warning" or something for future reference. Maybe I should just change the whole blog to "warning"!
Have a great day!
