Random 5 on Friday - September 12

1.  The husband and I just celebrated our wedding anniversary.  He's the definition of an amazing husband, plain and simple.  Faithful, loyal, loving, considerate, and not to mention a wonderful Daddy.  I am so blessed.


2.  I've never really gardened before, but I am seriously thinking we might be adding some fruit trees and berry bushes next year.  My kids are massive fruit eaters and by the time the trees would really start producing, the boys would be pre-teens.  So now I'm researching my head off.


3.  My husband and Elliott both mentioned to me (without knowing of the other doing so) that they wanted cherry trees.  Husband wants a lemon tree.  He also mentioned that the grew grapes along the barn as a kid.  I was thinking of the obvious, like apple and peach trees people.


4.  I need some new audio book suggestions for the boys.  We're finishing up the first book in The Boxcar Children series (which is where Elliott's initial cherry tree request came from) and we have 2 & 3 on audio book as well, but with the amount of time we're in the car, it doesn't take long to get through a book.  I do have Stories of the Pilgrims from a previous review but I'm thinking I'd like to save that for November and perhaps use some of the suggestions from the study guide to make a fun seasonal unit study for the boys.


5.  Co-op finally started.  The boys were so excited afterwards that they were talking over each other to tell me about their day.  Apparently the teacher of the LEGO class was amused with the 5 year old and his imagination.  HA!  It was a Free Build today, but I admit, I wonder how he will do in future classes with the more structured activities.  He is the creative, outside the box, doesn't want to be told how to do his LEGO creations kid.

  1. Happy Anniversary! We are big fruit eaters here too! Our garden only produced tomatoes this year, hopefully we can get some more fruit and veggies next season.

    1. Thank you! I want a vegetable garden, but for some reason the thought intimidates me!

  2. I really want to put in some berry bushes next year ... blueberries and strawberries. We also have a spot that I would love to plant a couple of apple trees.

    1. We are thinking at least strawberries, blueberries and my husband said blackberries grow really well here too. We have a few apple trees at the edge of the property that his dad planted many years ago, but they've seen better days.

  3. Happy Anniversary! We have blackberry bushes that grow wild but I would love some fruit tress. Maybe someday . . .

    1. I remember picking wild blackberries with my grandmother, but I'd love to have some fresh fruit right in the back yard! Husband even made the comment about the built-in homeschooling lessons! :)
