Wow I can't believe I haven't blogged and don't forget to look at the planets!!!

Wait a minute, yes I can.
First, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did okay, it was really tough not having Mom there. I know Christmas will be hard also. I really should be rejoicing, because I know that she is in heaven with her family. But I am just a bit selfish and miss her alot.

The kids didn't do so well in the derby. I made Trina run light the am race and she placed 4th. Dylan placed 5th. In the pm race, Dylan ran light and got 4th (3rd place points) and Trina with full weight got 7th. Trina needs 1 more 1st place to be locked in and Dylan needs 2 more 1st to be locked in for the Nationals. We have a two day race coming up on Dec. 27 and 28th. Hopefully they both will get what they need.

School is going okay. Today I used the Math place blocks to teach Dylan multiplying with 3 digits. He loved it and really understood it. I need to do more hands on for him. Must admit, it's hard sometimes to keep up with two different grades and learning styles. In science he is learning about mammals. We went outside and measured the length of a blue whale which is 100 feet. After we measured, I stood at the beginning and he stood at the 100 foot mark, and his mouth dropped open. He couldn't believe how big the blue whale is. I took some pictures, but am too tired to load them tonight. I will try to do it tomorrow.

Tomorrow I go for the dreaded boob squishing. I am sure while I am gone not much will get done.

I know that there are two planets under the moon, but haven't even had time to blog which ones they are. DO you know????

It is finally getting cooler here and I am so happy.

Kiddos are calling, they should be asleep, it's 11:11. Oh well.

Miss you all and will try to catch up with you all!!
Love ya

I made sure my family got their butts outside and saw the crescent moom and the planets! I told them that this formation won't happen again until I think 2052 so they better see it now.
Hope your kids do well at the next derby! Sounds like that is keeping you guys pretty busy.
Glad your Thanksgiving turned out well : )
