Oh yes, fun. I got to drive 25mph down the highway for almost an hour yesterday. :D Usually I don't mind though since I don't really go anywhere. One great reason for homeschooling kids. :D

I'm homeschooled. My mom doesn't like it that much because we are always on the run to one place or another!

The house we lived in before this one was a 4 acre lot. Talk about mowing that... took about 3 hours one riding mower.... probably longer through walking :P that's one thing about large lots of land... they take forever to mow :rofling:

Well, as you can see we don't have much to mow. It is mostly trees. We even had 7 deer in the yard by the house last week. When I say homeschool I mean home school. We don't go alot of places although my son does have a computer class. It leaves more time for knitting. :D I stand in the kitchen at our island knitting while I help dd with her school work. That way I don't mind if she takes an hour to write out her spelling list. And I can say I am busy helping her when I am really knitting. Ok, I help her some. :angelgrin:

Oh that is gorgeous!!! I love the first big snow when it's all stuck to the trees. By January, I'm over it and ready for spring.

Sadly, we only get hurricanes that interupt our homeschooling :D What a beautiful scene and it makes it cozier to curl up with yarn. We are having some cool days, but winter won't be here for at least a few more weeks. I miss real winters.

I can relate to that. My homeschool friends and I tease that sometimes we feel like we are car schooling in stead of homeschooling! Drive to co-op. Drive to speech therapy...Drive to dance class...drive for music lessons....................

Aw, I love that winter scene! How nice it must be to see that out your back door every day!

It is the perfect day to stay home and knit...

Love the pictures... I don't really like snow that much, but I do think it looks great on pictures :lol:

It snowed here the other day too, but most of it rained away today though... I took pictures from outside my house, they can be seen on my blog for anyone who is interested :D

Thank you everyone. My poor grandma moved here last week and says that she is already tired of winter wonderland :D

Beautiful! Just as I opened this post... Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" came on the radio!
We have a small but decent sized yard, and we have two 40 ft pine trees (one in front, one in back) next to our house. We got ice before snow the other day and a lot of wind and I am glad nothing snapped in our yard. I did have to stand outside for a bit and admire how still it is tonight and how the snow at night on under and overcast sky makes the night kind of glow from the street lights. Very neat! :happydance:

hehe.... I have to take a safe-sitters course in Feb. for a grade and stuff... and then I have to get involved with children considering talking over the things with my advisor, I will be busy. I will probably start a web developement course soon... maybe by mid-december, early January...

Come to thinking of it... maybe I should email her and ask if I can get scheduled earlier :thinking:
