I am still very busy taking care of sick children, going to the doctors' offices and orthodontist office and even took one child to Memphis to the airport where she left me to fend for myself for a whole week!! My house is a mess and due to results from allergy tests I am FORCED to clean things up and out around here or continue making my children sick. Dust mites were Caedmon's number one allergen on his allergy test and unfortunately, there is a lot of dust around here right now. Hopefully with Jeff's help tomorrow, we can remedy a good bit of that problem and then start work on the next problem. Believe me, we have a BIG list of problem areas that need attention, but health right now is the number one concern.
I am still dreaming of planning for the upcoming school year and took a moment this afternoon to do a quick survey of school supplies. I came up with this list for a well-stocked school room after doing my look around. This is a far cry from the materials that I started with over 22 years ago and not everything is necessary. I do like to find special pencils, pens, notebooks, and other supplies on clearance and put them up for little surprises. Did I leave off anything that you find necessary? I'm not talking curriculum or books, just supplies. Are you prepared for your next session of school?

copier/printer---Jeff bought us a pretty nice one a couple of years ago. When we got home with it Jackson was very interested and asked about it repeatedly. Jeff told him it was for his education. Jackson used that phrase every time the printer was referred to for a while. He was only two or three, so it was really cute! ; )
