So once again, I missed the 2nd week of Blogging through the Alphabet. But I’m not going to let that stop me. I’m going to bend the rules a bit and do 2 letters in one post so I can catch up.
First, B is for Books.
My husband and I share a common weakness.
It’s books. We’ve always loved to buy books. Before we even thought about homeschooling, we already had quite a collection. And after 10 years of homeschooling….look out!
To further complicate the my book hoarding problem is the fairly large gap from my oldest to youngest child. So I have a hard time parting with anything because Andrew might use it.
I recently painted the boys’ room and in order to do so I unloaded the two 7 ft tall bookcases that are in their room. (OK, so I had David do it. But I stacked the books downstairs.)
This is what’s left. I still haven’t put all the books away. But I have a pretty good reason.
C is for Capital.
We just returned from a trip to the United States capital city, Washington D.C.
We had a nice visit, though it was a little colder than I would have liked.
Here are my boys with the Capitol in the background.
FYI – It’s spelled capitAl when referring to a city. It’s spelled capitOl when referring to the building. Just thought I’d take the opportunity to correct one of my misspelling pet peeves. This error is slightly less annoying than spelling voila – wallah or worse – viola.
