So what craziness has been going on around here lately???

Well, we've started up another homeschooling year. We are another student short. Joshua graduated at the end of last school year. Sniff!! Sniff!!

We are now the proud members of 2 homeschooling groups! WOO HOO!!! 
Cailey and Colin took their first Art & Architecture class this week.

We also had our 3 meet up with our other homeschool group. FUN TIMES!!!!

We built a tabletop siege engine!!

To check out our homeschool adventures just search for Our Week in Review! I'll have a new one up tomorrow!

Now, on to the craziness!!

The Hubby
Jacob - 20 year old son
Joshua - 18 year old son
Deanna - 17 year old daughter
Cailey - 10 year old daughter
Colin - 7 year old son
Cloud and Derpy - our cats

Cailey - Jacob and his friends just came in downstairs. They had a guitar and a box of pizza. I don't know what they were doing.


Colin - Hey! I got it and I just met that sound!!

 (He's learning to read using Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons and it's WORKING!!!)


Deanna is helping Colin with his math. She says, "It's 4 and 1 0." He writes 410. She says, "No, I meant 4 and then a 0!"


Deanna and I are discussing her psychology course. Cailey pipes up and says - Hesitating can lead to spasms and hallucinations!
Deanna and I try to control it but we lose. We burst out laughing. WHAT????
Cailey - Well, I heard it on "Gumball".

Deanna and I continue laughing for the next 30 minutes. Apparently we both had the same picture in our heads.
Do you know QWOP???? Just try it and you will see what I mean. ;)


Deanna walks into the schoolroom the other morning. 
Colin seeing Deanna's new zit - EWWW! WHAT is THAT????


Deanna - One Direction has a new perfume out. I wonder what it smells like?
Me - Desperation???


Deanna and I are running errands.

Deanna - I have never been in a bank before. What's it like?
Me - Boring.

We walk into the bank and are immediately set upon by 2 men. One is a financial manager and the other is the bank manager.

The financial manager - I love your shirt! I haven't seen one of those in a long time.
(I'm wearing my Orange Crush t-shirt)
Me - Oh! I just got it at Penney's! 
Him - Recently?
Me - Yeah, about a month ago. They have Dr. Pepper, Pepsi. They even had old Guns n Roses!
Him - No way!!
Deanna says something about GnR.
Him - You know GnR???
Deanna - Sure! I know all kinds of music. Beatles, Bob Marley.
The Bank Manager - You know Bob Marley??
He looks at his friend and says - Y'know, I when to Marley's grave and talked with his other friend.
The Financial Manager - What?
BM- Yeah... I TALKED with his OTHER friend. I think the SMOKE is going over your head!
FM - OOOOH!!! You're lucky the cameras don't have sound!

We someone how got to discussing anarchy.
FM - I don't need this stinkin' tie! I don't need these stinkin' shoes or this suit!!!
BM - Hey! The cameras! The cameras!!

Deanna - I thought you said banks were boring.


Deanna - I just saw a ton of Nightmare Before Christmas stuff! Too bad I already bought Jacob's Birthday presents. I don't like him THAT much.


Deanna rushes over to my seat with her Algebra book (she's reviewing) and says - OK! Explain THIS!!!

I show her just exactly why it is the way it is.

Deanna - Ok. But what about THIS ONE!!!

I show here, again, just why it is the way it is.

Deanna - Oh. Darn. I thought I had something on Algebra....

Me - You can never have anything on Algebra.


Cailey - I want to hear someone say the alphabet but not using the letter names, only the sounds.

I comply and hilarity ensues. 


Colin was practicing his writing and forgot how to write an L. I throw my fingers up to show him what they look like. Deanna freaks out because she thinks I shot Colin the bird.

Me - WHY would I do that????

Deanna - I don't know. I thought maybe you had finally had enough.... It's not the first time I thought you shot someone the bird.

We were walking out of the grocery store one morning and an elderly couple stopped and let us pass. I thew up my hand in a little wave.

Deanna - WHY did you do that?

Me - Do what??

Deanna - Shoot them the bird!!!

Me - WHAT??? I waved at them!!!!

  1. You understand ALGEBRA? Oh, Stacy...and I thought we could be friends. ;-)
    Your school sounds like a lot more fun that the one I went to! Lucky kids.

    1. ROFLOL!!! That's the way Deanna feels about it, too!!!
      Algebra is about as far as I can go and keep my sanity. All higher math has to be farmed out. LOL

  4. Kudos to you for the 2 home schooling groups--you are amazing! Love the One Direction perfume line--"desperation" HAHAHA!!!!

  5. Stacy, your children are so fortunate to have you teaching them. What experiences! I must say, I've NEVER had that much fun in a bank ;)
    I'm smiling because I always taught my Kindergarten students to sing the ABCs phonetically.
