We have had a success on some of our garden. Our zucchini plant has taken off and we have been able to pick off some nice harvest. We were so proud of our success until we went to a local orchard........then we saw this gigantic one! Ummm...oh well! Maybe next year! :)

This is my hmmmm.... can't remember exactly... I have been home schooling since my boy was 3. I was one of those excited mommies that could not wait to home school. I guess this would be like year 11 counting Kindergarten. Which I did... and I might add was so fun. Oh, to go back...for just a week. So easy... oh, mommies, don't sweat the small stuff. Make it fun and exciting. There are plenty of years of hard core work. Enjoy the moment.
