first year of middle school has been survived by all parties, thankfully. C passed along to 7th grade some days we wondered if it would happen...as it were he failed art, yeah art although he did raise his points..to what a high F asked David. Frustrating to know that if he would just do all of his assignments and hand them in on time his report card would be straight A's with little effort. We are going to try a few new things next year to hopefully motivate him as we would seem to have run out of tricks in our bag of tricks.

or maybe the accidental gardener whatever I am very much faking it as I go but some wildflowers I planted around the mailbox appear to be sprouting of course it also looks like some weeds are growing back too so I have to guess what to pull or just let everything grow as it is. I also bought a bunch of different sorts of seeds and spread them up near the front door, likewise something is growing a combination of flowers & weeds. The containers in the back seem to be doing well the cherry tomato plant has 3 small tomatoes about ready to pick and the other plants just look good nothing sprouting as of yet-jalapenos, green peppers, cucumber and a tomato plant. Fingers crossed nothing is going to chomp on these this summer!
