My son is on his way home to visit as I write this! Our house is gonna get noisy(noisier?)! He gets to spend some time working as a recruiter assistant and will be here for about two weeks before he heads to Little Rock, Arkansas where he will start his new job as a jet engine mechanic(I can't remember the fancy Air Force term for his job). Jacob(second son) graduates from High School while his big bro is here so that worked out perfectly.
|Would you visit our house?|
I'm preparing my home for visitors as my parents will be coming to stay with us for the graduation. They bring a trailer which makes it quite a bit easier for me. I just have to worry about keeping the house picked up and the bathrooms clean. No, my parents aren't picky about my housekeeping but I would like them to be comfortable.
I almost have the whole veggie garden covered in straw now. I will be writing about that on Saturday so stay tuned if you're interested. My arms are getting pretty tan from all the outside work I've been doing. It feels good to be able to work hard without being in pain as I was last year. I can't believe how much stronger I am now. It's awesome!
The children and I are doing school this week and then we will work off and on throughout May as visitors come and go and come back again. I have lots of Science and History documentaries added to our Netflix instant queue in case I feel their brains are turning to mush. And I will encourage them to spend a little quiet time in the hot afternoons with a book until it's cool enough to go outside and play again. I love lazy days.
|I wonder if he still has his flashlight?|
I'll try to share some pics of my son at work next week so you can see more of what he does. Sorry, I'm a proud Air Force mom now and I have to brag a bit. Plus, your boys might enjoy photos of airplanes and engines. I know mine do.
|A flower for you for reading all the way to the end.|
And last but not least. I stepped down from TOS Homeschool Crew and will be posting my last review in May. I enjoyed my two years on the crew but am looking forward to changing my priorities and taking a break from the constant work of trying new products and writing reviews. It is a rewarding job and I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying it but I'm ready for a break.
