Ain't It Fine; Heaven is Nine!

It was a fine day celebrating Heaven's ninth birthday.  As homeschoolers, we do not have school on birthdays.  Other than Jerome had to go to work and we went to evening church, it was a relaxing day.

Heaven really wanted a stacked cake.  The local library has a new feature, cake pans to check out!  What a great idea -- Riane -- my local librarian took care of getting the pans in.  Mary is our cake decorator and let us use some of her tools while she was gone.  I will just be honest, I do not have patience for the decorating.  I was plopping frosting all over.  Adela took over and patiently finished the cake.  It turned out lovely.

She Looks very grown!

Here she is trying on her new outfit.

Still Here, Still Writing

It's been an interesting season.  I am still writing, but technology is making me slightly crazy.  Jerome got me my very own laptop.  I am really enjoying that! It is just handy to carry around my own and use it as needed throughout the day.  However, moving my itunes to a new computer totally wiped me out, consequently that's a job only half done.

I decided flikr would be a great service for my pictures, but there are some snags there, and I have had to download some pictures to my hard drive for different things -- like my new wordpress blog. So, I have been writing, but not necessarily posting.  It just takes so much effort to navigate my technology.

Things at home have been vacillating between intense and very busy and sometimes both.  The kids have been striking out in all directions.  Five of them are in a community production of The Wizard of Oz.  Braydon is making plans for his high school graduation this year and the rest of us are hanging on.

I thought I would take a few minutes to post a couple of fun pics.
