Finding Joy

It’s very easy in this world we’re in of technologic interconnectedness to compare our lives to others and think they are living a better, happier life than we are.  Most of time, things that are posted on Facebook are the best events happening in that person’s life.  Occasionally you have a friend who posts negativity […]

:) I’m a question mark too! :)

I need to talk to my kids about the science fair, it sounds awesome. I’m just a procrastinator. I will admire all the projects if nothing else. :)

Twinsies!!!!

It’s not too late for the fair though. There are tons of things to do that don’t take any time at all.

Please think about it!

I guess this is why we get along so well.

You Are a Comma

You are open minded and extremely optimistic.
You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.

You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.
You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.

Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.
(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)

You excel in: Inspiring people

You get along best with: The Question Mark

I don’t really know if that description sounds like me though. LOL

Ugh, I need to get started on that project. After his day is over. It’s my son’s birthday today… there is some baking and cleaning happening here today. The cleaning project could turn into a science project though… those corners in the kitchen… ICK!!!

Freckles, I so know what you mean. Sometimes it seems my whole house is a science project!

Deb,
I will take all the company I can get on the Rosco Peco Train issue. I was crushed when I found out the truth. Crushed and embarrassed. Thank you for keeping me company!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I’ll link to your blog, if you like. I still can’t get over the Pico incident…he’s lost some of his character now, in my eyes. lol I am not terribly surprised I was fooled. It happens a lot. And it is a favorite topic of conversation among friends and family. I have begun to think my purpose on this earth is to give amusement to others and to teach my husband patience. hee hee.

I LOVE Science! We haven’t done a Science Fair project, yet. I mean, not that we presented. When my oldest dd was 7 we bought an insane amount of chicks (16–and we live in a CITY–but we have a permit). We had several different breeds, so she would collect the eggs and journal about what they looked like (color, specks, size, etc.) and weighed them and charted which chickens laid what eggs. Pretty cool.

We homeschool, too. I am still getting my blogging legs on. I hope to post more frequently when I get back home.

Thanks again and let me know if you want me to link to your blog.

Oh yeah! Fun quizzes! I am an EXCLAMATION MARK!!!! Yippee!!!! I wonder if it changes, depending upon which day I take it. On my Eeyore days, am I an elipse? I love elipses…at least, I am in VERY very deeeeep like…with elipses, I mean.

Whew! Hold on a minute while I turn off the faucet to my stream of consciousness. :)

*I’m not sure that these quizzes are totally accurate. Are they FDA and AMA and LMNOP approved?

All the best with science fair! I’m afraid that I’m burnt out on those after my kids had a few years’ worth at school – it has been one of the perks of homeschooling NOT to do science fair!!

Will have to pop over to check my punctuation – personality.

Cheers,
Cate

Jenn, you are cracking me up! You’re so mellow I never would have guessed that you’re an exclamation point! ;-)

Thanks for coming by my blog and you’re welcome to put a link on your blog if you like. I’d be happy to return the favor!

Cate,
We’re lucky that we didn’t have all those years of school to burn us out. Iain was inspired by the movie Meet the Robinsons and wanted to invite everyone in internet land to join in. I hope you’ll come back and check out all the projects that the kids are working on though!
