Soap Box Alert...
my personal opinion is that little kids under the age of Middle school shouldnt have homework....they are in school all day after they need to relax... and be able to have fun...they are not adults...they need to be able to play and have fun...
we trian them to sit all day when there young and then blame Childhood obesity on what they eat... yes some of the problem the rest they don't get to move around most of their lives...sorry I took the soap box out...but my kids get on the bus an hour before school easily on teh bus for about 1 1/2 hrs each day on top of school...plus at school 8 hrs.. most adults do not want to go home and work more.. I think its a crime...

It'll be easier to have filled, no need for a lot of prep. Good choice.

I know what you mean. Even in season, I can never pick peaches correctly.

if they smell like the fruit when ripe they are ripe...I love fruit stands they pick them when they are ripe...no picking them early for transport...

We used to have big old peach tree in our backyard growing up... they spoiled me for peaches.. I hate when I bite a peach and it has no flavor or juice running down your face...

We have quite a few orchards around. So if I get peaches, I tend to go straight to the orchard.

I tend to read a classic literature piece, and historical biographies or auto biographies and then something lighter lately that has been christian historical novels or romantic stories and the occasional mystery novel...I like the christian ones because nothing is explicit(I do have an active imagination) and no bad language......so with that said recommend away...or just message me a suggestion...

Finished one whole garland with the flower parts...I realize I could make them really fancy but thought I would get the flowers on them first so I don't wear myself out in the end...they will have some tulle on them though and what ever else I might add just doing one thing at a time right now...hoping to get a lot of it done before I go to UT...since I will be finishing Invites in Mar...and I am sure I will have centerpieces and other things to figure out in Apr...but all these months have a trip in them too so we will see what happens...I am already doing more than DD thinks I should do...but I enjoy making it nice

...been stressed out all day... and tomorrow older DS will be home sick.. he was so pale tonight and having a rough evening...sore throat hope its not contagious...feels like a moderate fever but I didn't take it because I wanted everyone in bed.. everyone is still acting goofy...

I think I am going to take it easy so I don't get sick...
