You girls are AWESOME! I am so sorry that I missed the chat, it helps to know that other mothers do breastfeed toddlers as well. I actually am a breastfeeding educator and La Leche League leader, but I still rarely see mothers who breastfeed as long as I did. I miss convenience of the “booby band-aid”, as we called it.

Things get better here every day as far as the tantrums go, it is just not something I am used to. DH was actually home at a decent hour last night, and did not leave till 8 this morning so my youngest got some great “daddy time” this morning. And then the goof ball forgot his lunch and we were all in a mad dash to get to him at the Ranger station before they got in their engine to head out to their neck of the woods, thank goodness we made it in time to save the day and make sure he did not go hungry! It took me a good 20 minutes to go up and over the mountain to where he meets his crew, I flew past 3 sheriff hoping not to get pulled over!

We also follow a “child led” homeschooling life! We have some “curriculums”, like Oak meadow, and Saxon Math, but we really just pick and choose what sounds good that day. I plan out a year in advance, with the girls help, on what they would like to learn about that school year, and we add in the other stuff, like math, language arts, and such. Right now we are in the middle of Dinosaur month, where we are excavating a “Dinosaur fossil” out of a giant block of plaster, it is really COOL! Along with dinosaurs naturally comes volcanoes, and what a better place to live than No. Ca. with Beautiful Mount Shasta in our view! We are hoping to get up to Lava Beds sometime later this month too.

So, where is the best place to order him an extra pair of green nomex pants? The Forest service in not on the ball, and I am tired of washing the same pair of pants daily!

When is the next chat?
