|Abishai kept picking it up and then releasing the rice way above his head so it splattered everywhere! But he also tried to clean up.|
|And yes, he was getting veggies on his spoon and almost getting them to his mouth too.|
|Abishai was convinced he needed to sleep with Keturah. He would never settle if we tried to let him.|
|You don't see me!|
|These are half filled boxes that Jared wants filled so they will stack better when we put them back into the garage.|

You see, when we moved to Charlottetown, I insisted ALL the books be put on shelves and organized properly because they never had been. My parents had given me most of our library of books when they had moved to Indiana in 2005, but I didn't have the bookcases until they passed away. So, I made sure they were organized. Then when we packed them up, I tried hard not to mix up the categories. We did pretty good. But there were some stragglers here and there, or half a box of that went with a half of box of that because of it's location in the house. Therefore, when I started opening boxes here, I wanted to open them all and do a bit of reorganizing and reintegrating the "lost" books properly. That's now done. Now I don't have to display all my books at once. For example, I don't need any history books past Christ's life, b/c that's how far we'll get in history this year. Or, I don't need all my language arts books because we are doing that co op. I don't need all my homeschool help books, on hand all the time, but they will be in the garage if I need to reference them. I made great headway in all this today, and started tackling last year's planners that never got finished because of the move. Where we live, we don't have to keep much of a record, but it's something that I like to do to keep track, just in case we move to a state that is more particular about it. Then I'll start tackling this next year's stuff. I have 4 weeks until co op starts, hopefully that's enough time. It should be if I keep at it. Phew, that's alot about homeschooling. But it's a big part of our lifestyle. Yes, it's hard work and it takes time to prepare and teach and guide. We'll definitely miss Benaiah this year, but maybe he can rejoin us another year, if that's the best fit for everyone. Only time will tell. He starts school in 2 weeks! Ah!
