We always take the month of April off, so I finally got a chance to catch up on what's going on here. Looking forward to Mary's new book!

Winding up the last weeks of our oldest child's home education is scary and interesting and also very busy. He will "graduate" on May 20.

We are taking all the kids to Europe for 3 weeks right after that. I did Study Abroad in college and I've always wanted to show DH around Europe. We were too poor when we had no kids. Now we wanted to take the 3 oldest for their education, but it was too hard to leave the little ones so everyone's going. That's made for some interesting unit study this past term!

Expecting #7 in November, which always makes trying to get everything done in a day a bit more challenging.

Wondering how the moms with many kids are doing--?

Does anyone else have a 12th-grader finishing up?

Who else is expecting a new addition next fall?

Good luck on the trip! Some of my fondest memories as a kid are of manning our booth at various homeschool conventions around the country.

In answer to your question, I have eight brothers and sisters, one of which is graduated from college (Coast Guard academy, cum laude), one of which is almost graduated, two of which are in process, two of which are about to enter college, and two which only have a few years to go. Mom's kept busy, believe me! My own graduation has been delayed quite a while due to health problems and work, but I will be officially graduating in three weeks with a Comp Sci degree. I'll probably take a few months off after that (I'm hoping to visit my oldest bro and his wife in California during that time) and then will start an MBA program, which I expect will take me about three years.

Thanks!

When you say two kids are about to enter college, are they the same age? Are they going to enter at the same time? (Just curious.)

Congrats on your graduation, Theodore!

One's running a bit slow, and another's running a bit fast. Mom didn't cheat, all nine of us were single births Smile
