Bees in the Grass

September 12, 2012

We are in a blur of activity here. I am trying desperately to slow it all down… to grab the reins and get a rhythm…




We are fine tuning our homeschooling…and I dare say…for the first time in awhile…I am in love with it again!  They are learning and I am creating and everyone is surging forward.  We have been doing a homeschooling hybrid for a couple of years and we are finding a new stride.  However the house and all the fall preparations which  need to go on ,in a family this size, are piling up.

Time goes so much faster when you are in the house.  So the healthy ones and I have been out inspecting the hives.  We sit inches from the hive and collect the little drone bees.  The ladies of the hive have decided that winter is coming and they don’t want to feed these big boy drones.  The drones climb through the grass…lost.    So we pick them up and the little buggers are cute… but they don’t get to go into the next season….sorry guys it would take too much energy to take care of you all winter.

Half of my kids are sick with the strangest of colds.  Most have faired it fine…some worse than others.  But today…ugh!  That copper headed boy got it… so we are trying to evict asthma like it is a drone bee…Get Out!    I hope we can get it under control today.  If we can’t…then it will be off to the E.R.  This morning  has been a lot of tea making and books….. there is a huge pot of soup on the stove as I type.  The house smells of chicken curry deliciousness and eucalyptus (which is still working amazingly well)….not a bad combo.

Oh!  A great thing will happen…well it will be great…or it will be a catastrophe!    I will post about it tomorrow…good or bad.  But you who know me well… may guess there may be hints of it on Twitter and Instagram.  So meet me there if you just.can’t. wait.

    Oh we’ve had something here too. Severe headache and neck aches with it, I ended up napping 4 afternoons in a row and typically just have quiet down time. Get well soon and take care do the little one with Asthma. Does he have a peak flow meter nd chart to keep track of his numbers? It’s good to do so you can see the slight changes before it gets bad. We asthmatics don’t realize it n the earliest of stages.
