Peas on my Behind

I am so BEHIND on EVERYTHING!!!!! It has taken me way too long to get organized again after our Christmas break. We had a wonderful break with so many fun activities! I can't believe how much we fit into just a month's amount of time! We are finally back to school this week. I am a bit overwhelmed by many things right now; I'll spare everyone the gory details! I will not possibly be able to post all our great happenings from the holidays, but I'll try to choose just a few photos to share in the next week or so...but you know me and pictures!

And now about the PEAS...Abby finally went to her allergist after a couple years of not visiting, and we discovered she not only has a peanut allergy, but she is allergic to peas as well! Peas? Really? Well, everyone in the house is ecstatic that we never have to eat peas again! I just find this kind of funny. Peas...hmmmm...I wonder what else she's allergic too?!

Anyway, here are a few pics from this week. We skipped school on Monday so I could have one more day of organization, cleaning, laundry,and sledding, of course!

We started our study on Europe this week and tried our hand at a Norwegian craft, rosemaling.

Peas to you till next time :)


  1. Feeling behind is something I'm all too familiar with! Did you take off all of December? It's hard after a break to get back into the groove, but you'll get it! The Norwegian craft looks cute.

    Thanks for your comments on organization. It's good to know that I'm not the only one struggling there! Like you, I've also read that everything must have a place. For the most part, our stuff did....until Christmas! New gifts means more to organize. I came to realize that we need to do some of the art & science kits that are in the closet, so I'm going to pull those out this weekend!

  2. One of my very good friends just had her daughter tested again, and among the many new ones is peas also. What's up with that?

    We're just starting Europe this week also. But I totally forgot to do the art. I think I'm gonna have to wing it. We finally got snow yesterday, and I am NOT driving anywhere. :)
