While driving along the highway, DD#2 asked me, "which is bigger, a mile or an acre?"
explanation of distance vs. area ensued and was left with the question we ALL had: How many acres are in a square mile?
"gosh Sagan, (dd) I don't know, and I can't look it up right now, but I bet Grandpa knows, he was raised on a farm."
End of conversation, the question was forgotten... well... by me anyway.
<<They are so incredibly cute and snuggly>>
Aw, what color are they? How many did she have?
When I was 12 or so, I got to watch my cat give birth, it was so cool - I took a picture of Mama eating the placenta...lol...my mom was shocked when she saw that picture in the stack :
Michele, mom of DD 5/01, DD 11/03, and DS 11/06
nice, salt phoenix, I hope one day my DD will be happy not to go to school - lately she's been begging me to send her to boarding school! :
Holy cow did we have a busy day here! Apparently today was the day for lots of friends and family to show up. I think in total we had 11 people here in overlapping shifts lol. Dd's aunt showed up and then Dh's brother and his family, and then some out of town friends we hadn't seen in forever, and then some of my family showed up and we went for pizza. Phew! We had fun but we are pooped.
We got an interesting look into public high school life via our friends' girls. They are in 11th and 9th grades. The older girl really enjoys the school environment but she says there is a lot of pressure at her grade to pass the state tests and get excellent grades as well as to participate in extracurricular clubs and groups. She likes it, but she seems stretched a bit thin. The other girl cannot stand school and is pondering getting out. They think my kids have it so good. And they are right!
Tonight it's munchies (had the late dinner), new Simpsons and King of the Hill etc, and some downnnn time.
