I hadn't realized it had been more than a month since my last post.

We've been pretty busy around here. Passed around a nasty little infection that started out like a cold but progressed to ear and eye infections in nearly everyone so I've been busy passing out doses of antibiotics and eye drops to multiple kids over the last month. Fun, fun, fun.

I came down with it the night before I was planning on going to a huge, homeschooling used book sale so I missed out on that. :( I have one more shot of finding some deals on used books at a convention in the middle of July before I break down and have to pay full price for the stuff I want to use this year. For now, we've started up again using our McGuffey Readers, some math workbooks and DVDs from Netflix for history.

I've been busy doing some clothes sewing as well with tons more to do (pants and skirts for the girls and me). When I get more done, I'll post some pictures.

As my birthday present, Mohsen watched 3 of the kids while Safiya, Husein and I went to the local annual quilt show. We had tons of fun, probably bought a bit more than we should have but enjoyed ourselves so it was worth it. I haven't had a chance to transfer the pictures I took but hope to this weekend if I can get my sewing projects finished.

The little guy just woke up from his very short nap so I've got to run. I'll try and post again this weekend.
