It's been a while

Yes, it's been a while.  I've been busy working on getting my medications straight.  If you are interested, I'm still working on this one.  I've also been enjoying the cooler weather.  The boys and I got the garden going.  We have some tomatoes almost ready to harvest.  We planted green beans, peas, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon, bell peppers, jalapenos, onions, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash and some zinnias.  I'm still thinking about what else to plant.  I still have space in that garden.  Any suggestions?  
We've embarked on a family learning experience.  We are learning sign language.  We have been learning a lot and can now at least understand what is being said by our deaf friends.  When we decided to do this as a family we went to the big chain book stores and got some ASL dictionaries.  This is great for learning words but our question was how to do you speak in ASL.  It's not like speaking in english.  We searched and found a site for ASL grammar.  I got the books in pdf and we have started to figure out how the grammar for ASL works.      
Here I am at one of our sign language practice classes at a friends house.  I think there were about 25 of us learning that day.  Of course it was fun eating the food too.  That was a lot of fun.  We have been driving to a congregation meeting in sign language out of town.  That has been lots of fun also. 

We took a trip to the Houston zoo and really enjoyed the cool breeze that day.  We have also taken days off of school to accomplish other learning experiences.  Also days off with hubby have been fun even if we just stayed home and just did work around the house.  It's the best time of the year when the cold stops and it's just mild enough to be outside in shorts.  That is when we take time off.  It's not much time we have when the weather is perfect to be outside.  We always say our winter is maybe 3months, spring is about 3 weeks and our hot and humid summer is the rest.  BLAH!  

Now that summer is coming on in South Texas it will be time for finishing up our school year.  I hope to be posting some more now.  Nice to be back.

I hope you've got your medication leveled out. I know that must be hard. It's good to see you back! :-)

We have 2 field trips scheduled this week. It is finally getting hot, but still cool in the evenings and the low humidity has kept the heat from getting too unbearable yet.
