Harlem Globetrotters

They came to AK. We got to go. I laughed so hard for 2 hours that my cheeks hurt. It was a fun show. If they come near you, it is clean family fun.

Unschooling economics...

...just got expensive!
We told the kids plus a friend's kids they could earn a penny for every rock picked out of the grass now that the snow is thawed. It just got expensive. They took the lesson to heart.

Adventures in bifocals

So far, so good. I have learned that I can't wear them when I cook, eat, or exercise though...that makes me nauseated. However, I wasn't even aware of how fuzzy my world had gotten until I got them. The world is so much sharper now. So, now the crazy lady with the wheelchair has bifocals. 
4 years....still changing....but this is probably attributed to getting old :)?

I love it when the sun shines and we can do school outside. Yes, Princess Joy has short sleeves on and it is 38 degrees F do I.

Well, here we go....I gotta buckle up. 
My first baby turned 13.
She requested sushi for her bday lunch.
She got a special ring in exchange for a special promise.
We went shopping for make up.
What a day...
She is an amazing kid.if she had to, I have no doubt this kid is now equipped to run her own home. 

The sushi chef made her a special dessert.

Quick health update

Blood pressures meds are finally working at about 90%.

It appears I got extremely anemic, to the point of danger. I'm taking iron.

I just ordered my first pair of bifocals! 
Up in the boonies, there is no such thing as next day glasses. For now I'm sporting a true Mrs. Claus look with reading glasses on the end of my nose.

Princess Hope's Easter Cake

We don't "do" the Easter bunny, but celebrate The Lamb in some special ways. This was the Easter cake that Princess Hope made. She found an idea on Pinterest, and did an awesome job copying it.
