Wordy Wednesday...(it IS Wednesday, right?)

Things have been busy here.  I've been busy catching up on my reading and thinking seriously of approaching my doctor about this idea.  If for no other reason than to see the look on his face. 

I just finished book two of The Hunger Games.  If you've never read them, drop all and read it.  You won't regret it.  The movie is coming out soon, so get on it. 

My daughter is extremely attached to me lately.  I think I like it.  It is especially working in our favor in terms of teaching her to sit quietly in church.  She's like a church mouse - quiet but intensely shifty.

With kindergarten right around the corner I've been trying to settle on what goals I'd like William to have reached come 1st grade.  It can be a bit overwhelming, but really.  It's only kindergarten and I think the only "skill" he won't learn (compared to other mainstreamed kids) will be line-formation.  I can deal with that.  A day trip to Disney will teach him all he needs to know in that department.

And speaking of kindergarten I think I found a fun math program.  Check it.  Seems a bit pricey, but I like that it's a mastery program rather than a spiral program. 

The weather is turning wonderful here!  We are thisclose to getting our fruit trees planted in the back yard, and I think it might be time to start getting some of veggies planted in my garden.  My peas and tomatoes didn't do well last year so I'm thinking an earlier start might help them out. 

We are on our second-to-last book in Before Five In A Row.  I'll post about that later.  If I don't forget.
