The sun is shining today. We've needed the rain, but 4 dreary days in a row was starting to wear on me. Hopefully I'll have some time to hunt for mushrooms today.

Homeschooling started back last week. So far so good with the exception of hyper housebound boys the last couple days (see comments on weather). I really like the Sonlight curriculum. It's been a bit of a challenge to juggle the farm and homeschooling. I'm still trying to find areas that I can cut back on farm responsibilities and areas where I can put the kids in charge of their own education.

In the midst of all this, I'm trying to get the goats ready for breeding. I am taking deposits on kids this year, but that means that I have to get everyone clipped, photographed, and posted online to people know what they're buying.  I may just have to take pictures of Magnum from a distance. He stinks so bad!

I'm off to get the milking done and then a long day of teaching.
