So nice to have everyone where they ought to be. So enjoyable to sit and just hangout this weekend.

Fall is Almost Here

I know in many parts of the US fall has already arrived. In California it takes its time. I start decorating anyway!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

I cried and sniffed through most of this movie. They even had geneology in it for pete’s sake.

I laughed a great deal too, but it was so relatable. Aging parents, surley children, working on your marriage while being pulled in all directions.

My husband was sweet and watched it with me. He enjoyed it – he is so old school. He love traditions and our own big family.

Last week we watched his movie pick – London has Fallen.

There is a scene where  Toula is looking at a photo of her daughter Paris before she was a teen. How many times have I done that myself.

Life after Homeschooling

For over 20 years (5 children) at this time of the year I would be making lessons plans, gathering unit study supplies and making books lists in preparation for the new school year.
Not this year. This year I am under the shady tree with a cold drink and a stack of my favorite magazines.
