    This, exactly. My 4-year old likes to say "If I tell you the truth I won't get in trouble, right?" HA! You wish. I always say, if you did something wrong you will still get in trouble, but if you lie about it you will get in twice as much trouble"

    Someone else just recommended them too....good idea. He just finished the Harry Potter series too and we gave him Ender's Game as well.

    So i get home a letter today for a field trip that Lillian is taking tomorrow to the oceanside. In the letter it lists what they need. One of those things is a pair of shoes they can go into the water with...not flip flops. It suggests water shoes or a pair of sandals with backs. Ummm..you think you could give more than <24 hours notice for something like that? Especially in a mixed district like ours where there are probably some kids who don't have a random assortment of shoes hanging around.

    We don't buy water shoes...and if my kids are going to get their feet wet, we use our flip flops. Luckily i found a pair of sandals up in her closet I think she can wear. They used to be Emma's. Unfortunately they are a nice pair of keens and I would have rather not used these for this purpose.

    So excited to realize that the green onions that I planted are ready to be picked. I picked half of them. I cut the ends off to replant. Supposedly they are supposed to regrow all year long. I cut one finely up and put it in dinner tonight. So far I have had lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and the green onions out of my garden.

    That would be frustrating.

    You mean, you cut the white root end off??????? That is the yummiest part! I have green onions in my greenhouse. They have sprouted. Cannot wait to eat me some.

    Oh and Kim, you could always get a cheap pair of Crocs knockoffs for the water. I know how you all love Crocs down there.

    Just above the roots. There was plenty of white left on it. I have seen several posts on Pinterest about growing year round by doing this. Overall, I do not love green onions, but everything tastes better when I know it came from my garden. The satisfaction of having grown something adds something to the taste.

    Last night DH had the audacity, the rocks, to say that I had more time to "twiddle my thumbs during the day" than he does, therefore it is easier for me to arrange the kids' lives, appointments, social outings, school commitments, birthday parties, etc. etc. etc. Did I mention I work a 9-hour day? Anyway, in the interest of true equality I have decided that he can pick up where I'm leaving off in the "organizing everybody's lives" department and see how he manages. Obviously I will have to intervene if he forgets to do stuff like get the kids to their dentist appointment or schedule Ben's shots in the fall, but with other stuff I'm actually interested to see if he even knows that 'thing' I always manage to remember is a gift that I'm somehow programmed with or if I actually have to do any work to maintain everyones' lives. I think he will be shocked to learn that I actually have to put effort into keeping all this stuff straight in my mind and written on the calendar. We should put money on this actually. Mama needs a new pair of Toms.
