      Mine, too! How old is yours? Mine hit 5'9" right at his 13th birthday. He is delighted to be the tallest in the house.

  4. Does anyone else feel like they are stuck in the Little Nemo movie? "Mine. Mine. Mine."

  5. Just overheard my 3yo ask her sister, "Are animals real?" Homeschool fail.

  7. Off to meet fil for the first time. He and dh haven't spoken in 30 years. This should be . . . interesting.

      Wow, best wishes to you. DH and I were married for 12 years before I met his estranged brother. He was surprisingly normal. Haven't seen him since.

  8. DS has an event in San Francisco tomorrow. On pride weekend. The day after today's ruling. I wonder how many hours we should add to our commute estimate?

      Update- it was totally easy getting in and out. Also, first time to TI. It was so NOT what I was expecting.

      Found out that it's actually on TI. We're coming from Marin- driving. I think we're going to go Richmond and Bay Bridge.

  11. Tropical Storm Arthur will barely affect us, but that doesn't matter to local news anchors. They love a storm, even when it's not going to hit us.

      My favorite was the year we had Charley, Frances, and Jeanne. I can't remember which storm, but there was this moment when the reporter was in a boat, leaning into the wind, and then this dude just went walking all normal behind her in maybe 8 inches of water.

  12. Another year of Science Olympiad is completed with four medals at States. Next year---high school division C!

  13. For the 1,000th time child SHOW YOUR WORK.

  14. Regional cheer competition today. I want the girls to do well, but, to be honest, I'd be just as happy if we didn't have to practice through the holidays and go to state in a few weeks....

      I once hit a point in our softball season where I was internally rooting against our team. I was just so sick of the other parents that year. The more we won, the bigger jerks they became.

  15. Crystal. Maybach. Diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes. Islands. Tigers on a gold leash...we don't care.

      Blast from the past! I didn't know those things were still around.

  18. "But where are Ma and Pa going to be?" My three-year-old, upon being, informed that we are almost done with LHOTP and will be putting the series aside for now. I assured him they would still be safe in the books until we got back.

  19. You know what's awesome about this board? We're starting chemistry, so I search "chemistry." Within 10 minutes, I have 5 awesome looking books on hold at the library and 1 vintage text on my ipad. Thank you ive!

  20. The Children's Librarian at my local library just asked me for suggestions for a homeschool book section they want to create. For a moment my mouth just hung open like a fish.... there was a traffic jam in my brain!

      Our local library had a binder that could be checked out which was like homeschooling 101 and had specific info explaining the laws, complete with sample withdrawal and letters of intent. It was incredibly helpful to a newbie!

  21. DD13 has declared me the best mom ever. I found her free horse riding, something she has been begging for years to do but I could not afford it. I found a way for her to do so for free!

  22. Boys are in camp all day. Wow. I don't know what to do with myself. It's....quiet.

      I'm terribly jealous.

  23. PSA: I am NOT a walking dictionary. That is all.

    1. sassenach

      I've noticed that treating mom like a dictionary is a definite homeschooler trait. I think it's because so many of us don't do the whole phonetic journaling approach that ps does.
