Everyday Rurality. Stop by if you have a chance.
Now for this weeks questions:
1. Do you ever go on picnics? When was the last one? Do you go somewhere with benches and tables, or do you take your own blanket?
I love picnics! I haven't went on any in a while though. When the kids were small I was always taking them somewhere for a picnic. My favorite kind is blanket on the grass kind of picnic. My grandson asked last week for a picnic so he could eat his lunch. I might have to do this tomorrow.
2. What's your favorite tropical fruit?
I would have to say pineapple I guess.
3. Wendell would like me to ask you if you've ever ridden a horse? Any pony rides as a child?
Yes, I spent the greater part of my growing up years on the back of a horse. During the summer I spent more time riding than anything else. Nope, no pony rides, my Dad thought they were dangerous so he always made me ride a big horse.
4. Describe the purse you are currently carrying. If you don't use a purse, what color is your wallet?
I carry my chicken purse that I got for Christmas.
5. Please tell me the last funny thing that you just recently remembered. This can be something funny that happened to you in the past, or just something funny that you remember.
We were just laughing the other day about this. One of the downsides to homeschooling is your children really never know what grade they are in so when a person asks they look at mom and ask, " Mom what grade am I in?" The person asking the question would look bewildered and you could see the look that said, " Weird Kid."
My son who was always interested is seeing how things worked was watching a repairman working on the garage door. He was about 12 at the time and at some point in the conversation, the man asked him what grade he was in, me not being around to ask, my son just answered, " Oh, I am not too concerned about what grade I am in, it really isn't that important." I guess the man was really dumfounded and when I finally came outside to pay the man, he asked me. I told him what grade he was in and that my son was being home schooled. You could tell though, he thought this was the weirdest house he had ever been to with all of these kids and not even knowing what grade they were in.
Later when I had all of the kids together we sat and drilled about what grade they were in and what year in school. I still sit and laugh about that.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful week.
