I felt really busy. And then I wasn't busy anymore. I'm happier when I'm not busy. I hadn't exercised for a few days, and then I decided to exercise this morning, and I felt so much better. Exercise helps so much to be energetic and happy and capable to do everything you need to do.… Continue reading Busy fades away
We have been busy lately. But good things have happened: We own a house. It needs a lot of work. But I'm really excited to make my grandparent's house into my home and finish it, since it's never really been finished. We've been working a lot on the house. We went up there last weekend… Continue reading Busy

Things we get to do at home: Work outside. Or partly outside. Have a lot of fun while making really huge messes. Learn about photography and take pictures. Make elephant toothpaste (yeast and hydrogen peroxide).

Sometimes I take photos on my phone and they sit there for a while.
My sister came and visited with us. We had a water balloon fight and we went on a full moon hike. And we visited Canyonlands. Here are some pictures. Life is fun.
This was sort of the third day of school, but the first two days didn't go so well, so this was the first good day of school. Homeschooling is odd sometimes, since you can do what you want, but we try to have some structure. I didn't think I would be homeschooling again. The kids… Continue reading First Day of School
Day 2 of our trip was quite exciting. We drove from Black Canyon to Ouray, Colorado, a town that I had visited with my mom eleven years ago. We went to Box Canyon Falls, which were so loud and misty since the water gets forced through the rocks and is going quite fast. There are… Continue reading Camping Trip Day 2
