37 years ago today, a daughter, Beth Marie, joined her big sister, the second of our 3 beautiful daughters. A similar scene may have greeted us that morning, I don't quite remember some details of that day! Happy Birthday, sweetie.
I haven't seen common redpolls at my feeders in 8 years, according to my records! These delightful little birds from the Canadian tundra and boreal forests are paying an irruptive visit to the northern United States this winter. They were in a busy, noisy flock of about 30. I hope they come for breakfast again.
This is the Algebra I workbook the kids and I are using. Please note lack of eraser on my pencil. Math is not my subject. Give me Civics, World History, World Geography, Physical Science, Biology II, my pencils all have substantial erasers there. I will, however, prevail over this book.
Kids get large charge out of the nasty notes I write to my workbook. Answers like, "The rhinoceros will win." and 74.172, when there is no rhino in the story problem or the answer should be an odd number, lighten their frustration and mine. :o)
