Off Like a Herd of Turtles.

M riding an old trike at our farm "up north".That is one of my husband’s many pithy sayings.  I’m not sure where he got it, but he loves to say it with a cute little sarcastic smile that is trying oh-so-hard not to be a smile.  He’s awful at being sarcastic.  Too sweet-natured.  (Opposites attract, you know. ;) )

Anyway, this is my way of re-introducing myself into your cyber world.  I’m back!  Ye olde laptop is up and running once more and I’m faithfully backing up every little thing I do on it daily.  We did lose many months of pictures, but thankfully quite a few of our favorites were on my personal Facebook page for family and friends to see; so when we are old and gray the first 6 months of this year will not be a complete blank (still pretty sad about losing all the others though!).

Knowing how life is busy and days fly by, I’m sure many of you have not even noticed my absence; but it has felt like forever to me!

Now, the herd of turtles part… I’m not making any promises about how much I’ll be posting in the next few weeks, on account of the approximately 1027 other projects I took up in my spare, un-plugged free time this summer.  I have to see these to completion and that will take time. 
I am also in the middle of planning school activities to begin next week, and I’m sure many of you know how time-consuming that can be.  To help, I’m using a variety of things as a sort of homemade curriculum to follow (mostly free, as I’m just not ready to pay real money for a preschool curriculum at this point.  Yes, I am thrifty down to my toes). I hope to post about all of this in more detail at some point…

And yes, I know I’ve mentioned how I’m not a curriculum sort of gal and M’s not a curriculum sort of guy and we like to just fly by the seat of our pants when it comes to learning, and I’ll just custom-make everything we need, and all that. 

Ah well, I’ve never claimed consistency as one of my strong points.  :)

I hope to post at least once a week to cover our school activities, and eventually get on a more regular blogging schedule.

Have a beautiful day! :)
