This week over at Salt Lake City Our City Radio I talked about Jeffrey C. Olsen's new book I Knew Their Hearts. I also shared an event that Jeff will be doing with Dave Blanchard, Chad Hymas and Shantel McBride at the end of September. And finally, I talked about Coconut Oil - the popcorn enhancing elixir of the tropics. It's been a slower week. Last weekend we took a mini-vacay to Snowmass Village, Colorado to visit our friends. We picnicked by the Maroon Bells and enjoyed the cooler weather. Our Indy-dog was in heaven running around in the mountains.
We came back late Monday night after sending my niece off with a farewell dinner. She heads to Jerusalem for a semester abroad through the BYU Jerusalem Center. Jealous! I had to pack her up to make sure that she didn't take 15 different colored bottles of nail polish with her.
"Use the shoes!" I hollered as I shoved her 11 pairs of shoes with socks and underwear.
She's young. She'll learn someday!
Then we resumed homeschooling on Tuesday, where we worked on a variety of subjects, including learning about Liverpool and The Beatles, a bunch of math stuff, and read the Little House series, Harry Potter Year One, and Kaya, along with The Josefina's Story Quilt. We read a great deal about a great deal of stuff.
A bit of lovely news - the weather has turned slightly cooler. Next week we start our group homeschool stuff. Yay! Friends!
