Monday, November 26th, 2012

while we migrate our photos to a new host and website. I’m still taking pictures every day–will post the backlog as soon as I can!

We drove up to Pennsylvania today to spend Thanksgiving with the PA grandparents. Hopefully we’ll get to see AC in a day or two!

18 November 2012 Rag Doll Number 2

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

I fear we’ll have an army of these pretty soon if Sam keeps on with this sewing obsession.

17 November 2012 Sick Day Reading

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

I suppose it was inevitable that I would catch Sam’s cold or it would catch me. Luckily I had a new book to start today.

Even when she has a cold, this girl is busy, busy. The latest obsession is sewing.

14 November 2012 Fall Harvest

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

The greens didn’t do as brilliantly in the fall as they did last spring, but here’s one salad I got out of the garden today. I’m harvesting all of it this week since temperatures are dipping well below freezing at night.

10 November 2012 Hidden Casualties of War

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Came across this exhibit on the downtown mall today. Each pair of black military boots symbolizes a Virginian soldier who has died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. On the other side of the wall were row after row of regular street shoes, representing Iraqi and Afghani civilians who have been killed in the […]

8 November 2012 Skype Call with A Man at Work

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

At this point in his career, AC never imagined that he would be required to wear a hard hat for work. Apparently, programming software for the PA turnpike is more dangerous work than anyone thought. Sam and I both hope that he gets to keep the hat!

7 November 2012 Business Trip

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

AC is off on an extended business trip–he probably won’t be back home until the end of the month or later. The photo is dark (no flash) but you can just make out his rental VW bug, which is red. He needed a black car for the type of laser detection testing he needs to […]

6 November 2012 Loopercase

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

The thing about homeschooling is that you can have an idea–maybe even a plan–of what you’re going to do in a given day/week/semester/year and then usually you end up spending said day/week/semester/year watching it all turn out differently. Kids have their own timetables. Take Sam and loopercase writing. Loopercase writing is Sam’s word for cursive. […]
