  2. I enjoyed your list. I wasn't going to post today but though this is something fun so I gave it my best. Take time to stop by.

  3. Hey sharon. I was just thinking about you today, and feeling a little sad. It was so fun to have you here, and to talk, and do girl stuff with a friend. It is so rare now that I am an old lady that I have times like that. Wanna come back????? ( :

  4. I enjoyed popping over to visit. Thanks for stopping by.

    I love the list idea, I have seen many do this, yet have not done it yet. I love apples mancala and we just had a mancala play-off.(the 11 year old won!)

    I also home school as you read on penofjen, and I have a home school blog at mcbenningschool.blogspot.com
    if you ever want to stop over there!

  5. I so admire people that homeschool. It takes a LOT of discipline... I'm not sure I could have done that... so kudos to you...
