Acquiring Linear Waterfowl Status...

In case you couldn't guess from the picture, that would also be known as getting your ducks in a row.

We have had a crazy day around the house today. Jonathan worked overnight last night, so the task fell to me to keep the kids quiet this morning. Usually that's not an insurmountable task, but we had workmen coming this morning to replace part of our sewer pipe.

Have y'all ever tried to homeschool when someone is coming to fix something? Or better yet, when the view from your dining room table includes a backhoe? Yeah...I may not have learned much, but I know that just wouldn't work.

So I spent the morning literally entertaining my children. We did have fun, but I am exhausted! And tomorrow will be another long day, traveling up to Lexington for Ben's appointment at Shriner's.

Umm...where was I? Oh yes, back to the ducks! Looking around my house, I am going to have quite a few projects to get done this weekend. The two most urgent are cleaning off laundry from the table and cleaning out the refrigerator. I will post some pictures of the "before" shots Friday morning.

What "ducky" projects do you have going on this week?

Oh, I have so many ducks in my life today, and there not lining up very well I'm afraid.

All was well at 9:00 a.m., and then my eyes started to itch and my nose started to run. One allergy pill and a three hour nap later, my ducks were all over the place!

Thankfully I have a very well behaved daughter who knows what to do and what not to do when mama is sleeping, even without big sister in the house. I awoke in a panic to find her quietly playing in the office and watching Miss Spider.

I'm going to let the ducks roam free for today, we'll try getting them in line tomorrow!

Have a blessed rest of the day!

Isn't it great to homeschool when adventures happen? Oh, the ducks in a row... I need to take a teacher in service day now and then and get my ducks in a row, for sure! Thanks for the entertainment...

I just came across your blog (from another blogger friend of mine) and I like what I read. I look forward to reading more.

Congrats to your hubby for his Masters of Theology degree. How exciting!! My husband received his last May.

I'll be back to visit soon.
