It’s hot.  It’s rainy.  I love it here. ❤️

I think the heat is gettting to Ikslo. She’s talking nonsense.

And this Booya/h is Dedicated to our dear friend Ikslo, who seems to be in need of a little R&R at the Island. (walks away muttering, “hot and rainy!! That spells humidity.”)

Okay, so I don’t like the little ants I’m finding everywhere today!  Bug guy was here today and now they’re all showing themselves.  Humph.

The bugs here have armor. In Oregon you'd tap them and they'd be mush. Here you jump off a trampoline, put your full weight into the landing on a common house fly and they fly away laughing. It's a little embarrassing.

I went to workout class at the dojo with dd15 and ds13 This evening.

I will be sore tomorrow.

I was using 8 lb weights. Ds had 12 lbs and dd (because she is competitive and had to out-so her brother...) had 15 lbs.

Kernel woke up at 3:00 AM This morning begging to go for a walk and sobbed for half an hour because I wouldn't take him. I finally had to turn on Dora for him so I could sleep.

I probably would have gotten more sleep if I had just taken him for a walk...

I watched tv with my daughter tonight.  I actually wanted to watch something different, but having her come out to watch with me is so special that I kept it on what drew her out of her dungeon room.

We have reached the "negotiating" stage of camp packing, in which there are requests for a really long extension cord, Daddy, Kitty, and kids he already knows.

Good Morning, Happy Hump Day.   

Woke up with a sore back again today.  I almost feel like it was before we got the pad for our mattress.  I wonder if it needs to be flipped around. 

Things are really happening at the science center.  I have a signed contract for the school assemblies in January, looks like at least one week of camp will be completely full, I just got an email for a birthday party (may be too many kids for my space though, I have to consider), and registrations are already coming in for next year and once class is already almost full (and not one of the classes that usual fills).  It's very exciting.

My Tech Tuesday job was interesting last night.  The boss's daughter is back here from Florida for the summer.   She wanted to run things last night but didn't look at the presentation I sent her enough to know what to do so at the last minute, it was back to me.  No biggie, I've done it before.

We had a meeting to go over next year.  She said she already did the schedule and was working on the powerpoints.   There's another program running in Ky and they are starting in a few more states.  At the beginning of the year, I set up presentations for Ky with the idea that the person knew nothing (because they knew very little) so very step-by-step notes, almost a script but not quite (I hate scripts) just guidelines on things to point out, good questions to ask, etc.  So the kid wanted me to tell her what she would need to do to be able to provide that level of detail and I wasn't sure what to tell her.   I basically did it from experience.  Most of the activities for this year were things I've done multiple times between classes, 4-H, etc. so I basically just went through the presentation presenting it in my head and writing down what came to mind.  I wasn't sure how I would tell her to do that?   So it looks like she is going to do the presentations, send them to me and I will need to tweak and add the notes.  Not sure how that's going to work.  Looks like in August I'm going to get a bunch of presentations to work on.  

I think I"m going to send a message asking for her schedule, and mentioning that I will need time to work on these since I'm teaching summer camps and working on my own classes for next year, not to mention homeschooling so she needs to send them to me as soon as they're ready.    It might help.

Good morning! My children are leaving me. I'm partly sad, and the other part doing the Snoopy dance because it will be quiet. I really love my turtles, but I also love a quiet pond now and again, and they will have a lot of fun biking, zip-lining, and generally having a awesome adventure with grandparents.

Good morning! (((Jean))) 

Runner woke up with a wheezing, croupy cough about twenty minutes after I fell asleep last night. He and I spent a good chunk of the night steaming him and rubbing ointment on him, trying to make him comfortable enough to sleep. We won't be joining the homeschool park meet up today, but there will be several more this summer. So Runner's down, on the easy chair with strict orders to rest. Squishy is on the couch. He injured in between his toes yesterday, and I'm trying to keep him still so he can heal. Easier said than done.

Today's tasks include about 6000 words toward my current project, reading and math with the board books, and some household chores. I have a houseplant that could use some root love and repotting, and I think I'm going to spend some time digging around in my curriculum closet. It hasn't been properly organized in ages.

I love Pinterest but in my free time (:laugh:) I'm turning my curriculum boards into word docs with links so I can copy and paste them here.

@Spudater Why you cancel Pinterest?

I find Pinterest to be a good tool when I need it. I don’t go on there to browse, but if I need ideas or something I like it.

I have a part time job as a STEM coordinator for a Tech Tuesday program run by a local company.  The guys 15 year old daughter developed it as a mitvah (sp?).  I do it at their headquarters and it was the first one.  They are expanding into under-served schools in various states (Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Florida so far).  She's "in charge" but I've done all the PPT and notes.

I mainly continue because it's a steady paycheck and helps supplement my classes.  As soon as the science center is really doing well and self-sustaining (which seems like it may be next year!), I'll probably quit.  It's not often enough to make it a good part of the routine and it's in the evening which I don't like.

See, I am very visual. Which is ridiculous because I have visual impairment and I'm color-blind, but I digress... I've gotten to the point where my Pinterest boards are too big to be easily navigated and I like my word docs with links.

See, I liked it because I was one of those people who had a file folder full of everything I tore out of magazines.... recipes, gardening tips, landscaping designs, home decorating stuff. I’ve done that since I was a teenager. Pinterest is just like that, except on the computer.

Good afternoon!

I am finally getting to sit down for a couple minutes after a whirlwind of a morning.  And I survivied AFSA again!  I have less than an hour to do a couple odds and ends and then the whirlwind starts up again for a few hours.  I feel like I can't get anything done this week! :dry:

More coffee!

I think it's interesting how we have at least three writers in this thread, all doing different things. I just (self) published another family resource. This one is a drawing translation notebook. It was in my head for a while, so I had to knock it out. Now I need to get to writing the next in the series of my beginning Spanish classes.

I'm *almost* a writer.  😉

I'm working on a high school literature/writing curricula.  I'm working on the framework this year and hoping to begin writing it soon.  It likely won't be ready for publication anytime soon, though.  Maybe in 10 years.  😞  I have to hand out some more high school diplomas here before I will have the time/energy that this project really needs.
