Where's the Bacon?

We've successfully completed two whole days of school so far this year and nobody has cried yet. There might have been a little screaming, but no crying. This morning, we nuked some bacon and I stirred up some eggs, then added a little parsley from the front porch: an amazingly quick breakfast, which made me as happy as wearing this shirt does.

Just in case you can't read it, here's a close-up:

One of the more disappointing moments of my life was when I stumbled across an article on Facebook about how eating bacon causes cancer. After fretting over this for a few days, I decided that eating healthy is a thing because we are afraid of dying. And since I am just not that afraid of dying, I can eat all bacon I want! (Okay good health, living to see my grandkids, etc, etc, etc, I'll cut down on the bacon....)

I have one child who is extremely distractible when we are trying to do school, and to make the school room a little "quieter" we installed this curtain:

What's that? You'd like to see what's behind the curtain?

Pay no attention to the boy behind the curtain...

That's a whole lot of distraction covered up right there, and because I was embarrassed to post it in color since it looks so messy, I put it in black and white. Very historical appearing now.

All these pics of the room and finally one of the kids on the first day of school because that's what you do on the first day of school. I was so glad to start back to school finally! Not because they will be gone all day, because, lucky for me, they homeschool, but because we have structure and schedule in our lives again and I need that. Actually, now that I think about it, one of them IS going to public school this year, but he is my least favorite so....

Come on guys, I was kidding about Micah being my least favorite......he's actually my favorite.
