So fun times today my Brest pump went out on Friday (I also have a small manual pump so i was still able to pump.) I was finally able to get a hold of the company today and I have a new one that should be here tomorrow. Then my Aubrey is entertaining she will push her bottle out of her mouth then get mad because she doesn't have it anymore. She will also eat all of her cereal then get mad because the bowl is empty. She has such a personality.

My friend has her kids making cupcakes and calls it science class, lol. The big pot of Chili was math class - she made a double batch and they had to calculate the ingredient amounts.

Mine got geography and cartography because I put him in charge of the maps and figuring out how to get where we were going. Never got us lost, either. He and I would identify bugs, plants, and any plant diseases in the gardens-- lots of science there. We talked about the differences between baking and brewing (science and chemistry) and other types of cooking like soups, which are more art than science. He got lots of history simply because we've always been history buffs...
Arithmetic was covered by cooking, and the map reading (how many miles left? How long will it take at the speed we are going?) and we covered algebra and a little bit of geometry in everyday living... but eventually I had to find him a tutor for the rest. In the end, when he took the GED test, he not only passed, but with Honors.

I just "love" Wyoming springs. We woke up to snow this morning. :he I was wanting to start getting the garden beds ready this week. It will most likely be gone either today or tomorrow but I'm so sick of snow.

I don't miss Wyoming weather at all. At least it will be gone in a day, day-&-a-half max.

Well, I may miss the how much it cools down at night during the summer, but I have central air here in Wisconsin to do the same thing.
