For all you homeschoolers

I don't know if I have any readers who are also homeschooling moms (besides my new friend, Candace), but I thought I'd mention this here just in case. I actually saw this mentioned on Candace's blog! Angela at Homeschooling and Loving It is having a giveaway of The Schoolhouse Planner. All you have to do is leave a comment on the top post here to be entered into the contest. This planner looks great and I have been thinking of buying it, but it does cost $39.00, so it would be even better to win it!! :)

Yesterday was day 4 of our stay-cation. We first made a stop in Daphne, AL for lunch at McAlister's Deli, one of our favorite places to eat (so sad we don't have one here!). We then headed over to the Exploreum in Mobile, AL. It was pretty cool. The new frog exhibit wasn't as great as I thought it would be, but the rest of the Exploreum was really fun. Ella had been there before with her Tio & Tia, so she had to show us around. After that, we went to the Eastern Shore Centre in Malbis, AL where there are some dancing fountains and Ella had such fun splashing and running around in the water. On the way home, we stopped to have dinner, making it a full day! I promise to have pictures up soon!

You are brave to home school - I don't have the patience! ;)

Glad to hear the stay-cation has been fun so far. I must say it's been hard knowing you were in town, but not calling. We did go to the beach, but missed you and Ella. We'll go again when your back. :)
