Our second batch of corn came in and so I processed that right into the freezer. We did a total of 5 bushels or three HUNDRED ears of corn. How's that for a mental image? My hand still hurts a little from cutting ALL that corn off the cob but it's totally worth it. I honestly have no idea how much corn I put up or how many green beans for that matter. One of these days, the hubster and I will reorganize the freezer and catalog our food preservation for the year.

|Camouflage Cake with hunter orange sprinkles. It just about screams little boy, doesn't it?|
While I was trying to get the cake frosted (without previously licked little kid fingers helping), I threw some marshmallows and toothpicks on the table and said, "Here, make something!" in exasperation. It was a hit. I've known about marshmallow geometry for years but for some reason I had never exposed my kids to it!! To say that they enjoyed it would be an understatement.
We're starting school later this year than I would have liked but that's ok. That's the joy of homeschool, we can make it up whenever. I am seriously considering doing year long school. That would translate to a semester on and a few weeks off, repeat. I think it would be easier for us and also allow for a shorter school day and less summertime boredom!! I'll be posting all of our first week of school pictures and random thoughts next week.
