I have to wait for my mom to get off work. She said between 2:30 and 3, but I haven't heard from her yet. Maybe she's working late?

And yeah, thankfully your school starts in less than a month! We still have a ways to go!

Oh my gosh. My sister let her son surf around on Amazon.com and he managed to buy 140$ worth of toys. He's a 5 year old internet shopping genius!

Apparently Amazon stores all your info and if you're logged in, there's a quick purchase button that will automatically buy it. He clicked it on a couple of items, one being an 80$ toy! My sister was able to cancel the order.

Oh yikes, we always have to re-enter our password, but we also never click quick buy (I'm always trying to get free shipping).

Hi guys, I've checked you out in this section before but have always been a little intimidated to join you bc you all seem to know ea other so well and have your own little thing going on...

I live in Los Lunas, are you all in Rio Rancho? That's pretty far from where I'm at. Do you guys have reg days that you meet? I have been to a few homeschooling park days that meet on Thurs in Abq.

My boys get pretty bored so we would like to make more friends.

Thanks!

Wife to dh, Mommy to ds1 12/2002, ds2 9/2005, and ds3 9/2008.

We do know eachother pretty well, but are always open to having newbies around. We meet Monday, Wednesday (usually at least) and Friday. Friday is our park day. If you want to come on up for one of those, give one of us a pm and we'll let you know where we are that week. Monday and Friday are always same, Wednesday changes.

Three of us are near RR, but the rest of us live farther away. I'm in the SE part of Albuquerque, over by the foothills.

Tanyam, welcome! I can attest to the fact that we're open to newbies I was one last year. . I just started showing up and got to know everyone. We don't bite, promise. Since we are all scattered, we meet all over the place.

Welcome Tanyam! We homeschool too.

That 1 click ordering thing on Amazon freaks me out. I'm always afraid I'll accidently hit it when I'm adding stuff to my wishlist.

When B was 4 yo, I found out that he had googled every single fast food restaurant and visited all of their websites. After that we had a no googling policy without permission. Kids are really amazing with what they can figure out on the internet. A little scary though.

Wow comommy, that's pretty impressive! At least, though, it was only fast food.. I mean, there are plenty worse things to google!

Yeah, it was actually kind of funny. I think he looked up mcdonalds and all the others came up from that search. Then he just went down the list. It just shocked me that he could figure that out. Made me realize how easily it would be for him to find other not so nice stuff.

Welcome Tanyam, feel free to join, we certainly need more boys. We are all over town, and take turns putting the miles on our cars.

I guess I should be glad that E couldn't spell for a long time, at 4 he never would have figured that out.


E has created his own Lego model and wants to submit it to Lego (this is all fine they have kids do this all the time). But I'm being a freak and can't seem to get the best picture, I think I need more backdrops

Thanks guys, I think it would be fun to meet you at a park sometime. I will do what you suggested and pm one of you to find out about next week. I have 3 boys so plenty of energy here!

No kitten adoptions today. There must be someone out there needing a super cute cat or kitten...! Our little blind one has someone interested in him but they didn't yet want to take the plunge.

I know I came from Arizona but man, I do not like this heat!

Eman's, I hope you get just the right shot!

Eman, that's cool that E is pursuing that! What'd he build? Also, can you pm me the link to the photo album?

Tanyam, high energy is a big part of our group. Everyone of us has at least one kid with high energy!

Rach, aw how sad. I saw your facebook update. I wish we could take a kitten. S1 would be THRILLED! But stupid dh and his allergies (and his irrational hatred of cats (and small dogs.))

Wish we could take a kitten, but I think we are at max for animals around here. 2 cats, 3 chickens, a 4yr, 2yr, and the worst a grown man, all of which need fed and cleaned and stuff. Not to mention the wee one on the way. I'll ask around though.

so I had a whole day of the blahs and it started to freak me out about postpartum. Send good vibes this way cause I am going to need them.

Anodyne, I had the blues, mild depression who knows during M's pregnancy but have felt nothing but amazing since she was born, I think I just got it all out during the pregnancy.

Elm I have no idea what he is building Everything looks like Lego to me.

Eman, do you know about the bulid your own lego set site. You can build a set and then BUY it So far we have not succumbed.

So went to my first HB as an student last night. It was wild. Looks like I will have plenty of stories for our get togethers.

I am home today on call, I hope I go in, I need the money, but last night I needed the sleep..

WE have swim lessons this week but other than that we are pretty free M and Wed.

We were supposed to start private swim lessons this week but the kid teaching the class has yet to return my calls and now I can't find the number :. I'm signing at least R and maybe E up for a few days of summer camp at gymnastics I swore I won't but I really can't take much more of the two of them together. Our weekends have been jammed and I'm just not getting any time away from the fighting and the heat is starting to get to me. The pool is over 100 so it's good for getting wet then getting out to cool off. Oh and I've gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks. Man I'm just a barrel of fun today.

Eman- I hope that happens to me. I felt pretty good my last pregnancies but not so good after. I would rather get it done during instead of after.

I am headed to a c-section for suspected large baby so nothing for us tomorrow.

anyone know somewhere to go in the late afternoon that has AC?

Is anyone doing open gym and park today? I'd probably only be able to make it to the park (I really need to clean this place up.)

We can do stuff, they will need to get out of the house. Anyone watch the weather, after building a fence in the heat yesterday I'm not sure I'm up for super hot.

Could we do anyone's house after open gym? The heat is killer, I agree, and since it seems to be making my ms worse, I'm up for going to someone's house.
