Questions about my Thirteen

I love doing this. Answering the questions y'all asked me about my 13 and commenting on the comments. Its a really easy post.

So here we go...

Socks and Abby said...
Oh, I'm the first! Sounds like you had some fun. I cant knit very well either, but I can crochet. Yes, you're first here. Yes we have lots of fun. I can crochet too and I keep thinking that maybe it would go much faster if I took this knitting project and tryed to turn it into a crochet...because I still don't know how to cast off anyway.

Geggie said...
Whoa...you had a busy month. Lots of fun, though! Thanks for stopping by my list.
Some days it seems that I'm really busy...especially when we have more than one thing going on per day. But most days its just doing what we're supposed to do. Today we have two things scheduled, but yesterday we stayed home and planted flowers.

Christine said...
Sounds like you had a busy but Fun month. My husband lives at Home Depot, I'll have to check to see if there is anything for the kids. He can take them too, and I'll have a peaceful afternoon. Thanks for the info. Have a great TT! Here's the link on the Home Depot workshop Lowes does one too but we've missed the last two months because of other stuff and I like the Home Depot projects better. Dh & I usually trade off on who takes Darly to these giving each of us a break. So we do HomeDepot on the first weekend, Lowes on the second weekend and then there is Kids Kulture on the 3rd weekend. It keeps us from spending all our time at MIL's. ;o)

Fated Hearts said...
I wish we have home depot near us. That seeds activity is so interesting!!! I do love your list, full of activities except when you got sick, hehehe. They also do this at Lowes but they want you to sign up for that one. Scroll down to change the zip code unless you wanna come all the way to Parker CO...hee hee. I hate getting sick too and this cold was the kind that keeps you congested for weeks after the cold has gone. I still have a little of it...blech. Darly caught it and is driving me crazy coughing all the time...DH called her Coughy the other night.

Chaotic Mom said...
MAN! You had a fun month. Except for getting sick, I guess. I would have LOVED the book sale! ;) The book sale was nice I bumped into 4 other homeschooling friends and we had a blast shopping. Shopping in groups is always so much fun and of course the caused me to spend more money...but I had a $10 off coupon.

dragonden said...
Busy busy month of May. I bet June will be just as busy. :) Yup! June promises to be just as busy...starting with Girl Scouts and a Family Astronomy Night tonight!

Lisa said...
What a busy month!! Kids LOVE trampolines - even all hot and sweaty, they still go back for more. :) Yeah, the problem with the trampoline is that we can't enforce the only 2 kids on at a time. This house has 6 kids and there are a few of them with "selective hearing."

Wystful1 said...
I LOVE the Cheyenne Moutain Zoo. Tell me, do they still have the red panda? Nope. We didn't see a red panda, but the Denver Zoo has them. One of these days I have to drag Darly out of bed early to go see them. The Denver Zoo is so hot that the animals are all sleeping by the time we get there and then when they wake up its time to go home...bummer.

Denise said...
OMG! You certainly did A LOT!!!! I'll have to check on that Home Depot thing. Check out the Lowes one too. I know you wanted lots of stuff to do with the kiddos this summer.

Trinity13 said...
I've never taken my son to a Home Depot workshop...but I'm sure he would love it! I'll have to check into it. I posted the link to Home Depot & Lowes above. I'm sure your little boy will love them. Oh I forgot to mention that when you first go make sure you tell them its your first time and you'll get an apron and other goodies too.

Jennifer Sprague, High Top Baby Designs said...
WOW what a busy BUSY month you had! :D Gotta keep busy and keep learning!

Reverberate58 said...
I think it is so great that the kids get to do so much in their month. Growing up with public schools we never got to see so much! Great list to share! My list is up! I grew up in a tiny one horse town and we didn't do any field trips at school until we got to 4th grade except for Girl Scouts, which my mom was the leader for. I think that Darly is learning so much for all of these trips...of course I'm beginning to worry about what we should do next...but then another homeschooling co-op comes along. :D

Laci said...
When I was a kid, I lived for the days of the Scholastic Book Fair! :) I'm such a sucker that when our Church's Preschool has a Scholastic book Fair I still go. Even though the Warehouse sale has all the same books for 1/2 off. When I told my Homeschooling friends about this sale, I titled the post "Hide your Checkbooks!"

Laura said...
sounds like a great, merry month of may. Yup! We have a lot of fun.

Jackie said...
Wow were you on vacation? Or just really organized and into doing things at home? Sounds fun either way. No vacation yet. This was just our normal busy schedule.

"D" said...
You do soooo much for Darly and her home schooling - that is so inspiring! Well, thanks for saying that. I think that we would both get very bored if our homeschooling was actually at home. ;o) She learns so much from all our fun that when we do stuff at home she doesn't fuss about it. Yesterday we were planting flowers and I started quizzing her on math stuff using the flowers. There were 6 containers of 6 plants divided between two beds...etc. Darly says "What is this? The Math Garden?" :D

Sherri said...
Wow, busy month!! Gotta stay busy

Mom's Secret Life said...
Too fun, Renee! My list is also up, but I can't do the fun linky thing. That's kinda tough to figure out because each type of blog uses different language...I think. I'm not up on all of that. Blogger has a link you can click on to get the linky thing to work...or you can learn the language. I use the clicks.

Better Safe Than Sorry said...
i've done a few of those things as well, the home depot kids event, the book fair, and trampoline at the neighbors, and i too, did not go on! I can't do the trampline anymore or I'll need ... well that's TMI.

Scone said...
Sounds like a blast. Sure was!

Cristie said...
Wow, you guys were busy in May. I wish I had done a few of those with my bunch. Well, theres always June! Thanks for the info on the book sale, I had no idea they did that. I cant wait to go. I forget how I first learned about the warehouse sales. Probably a Homeschooling friend told me about it. For those of you who aren't teachers or homeschoolers...you might have to fib about that to get in...although no one is manning the door. They do want to put you on their mailing list though...to let you know about more sales.

Bone said...
Good heavens! I'm not sure I've done that much the entire year.
Actually, if you take everything I've accomplished in my entire life, and condense it down into one day, it looks decent! You're still young and you've got plenty of time to do stuff. When I was your age, I hadn't done nearly this much.


Chickadee said...
Oh man, what a busy month you've had! I remember those "Field Days". I hated them with a passion. I like the lima bean lesson and the search for seeds. What a fun way to learn about plants. And that scholastic books warehouse! Ohhh that would have been heaven on earth for me! I didn't care a whole lot for Field Days either, except that it meant getting out of class for the day. Darly doesn't have that problem...hee hee. And the kids loved disecting their lima beans, I had to give them all several. I'm a sucker for the book sale. Although I'm still waiting for HP#6 in paperback at 1/2 price, but they haven't released it in paperback yet.

TLC said...
Sounds like a lot of fun. Do you homeschool? I had no idea Slim Goodbody was still around! I remember the character when I was a kid. Yup! We unschool mostly with a tiny bit of "structure." I thought that I might have heard his name before, but I had never seen him. He (the guy we saw) was much older than I was expecting. He was very nice and came out after the show when most kids had already left to shake hands with our kids. There were a TON of school kids there. Events like that with the School kids reinforce for both me and Darly how much better we have it learning at home.

Well, looking at my calendar for June I see that so far we have only 10 things planned. But I'm sure it will fill up before the end of the month. :D
