Happy Birthday Clinton!

One of the great things about homeschooling is that you can learn things however you want. This year we are having a Presidential Birthday Bash and celebrating each US president on his birthday. We haven't gone as far as birthday cake yet, but we make an attempt to learn about him. Today is Bill Clinton's 63rd birthday. We learned about him yesterday by reading a library book. The kids then invited a "guest speaker" to our "class". It was none other than.......Bill Clinton himself:

So yes, Bill likes to play the tenor sax, he was born in 1946 in Arkansas. We learned some other things, but didn't get into the whole Monica Lewinsky thing. These kids books kind of skip over some things.

That was yesterday. Today I allowed the kids a good session of airplane rides. Today I tried a new trick. Who needs a gym when you have two 30 something pound weights to press?

The new trick.
(Sorry about the butt shot, but I didn't want to crop it though because I wanted you to get the full effect of the trick. Maybe we'll try out for America's Got Talent next year.)

The traditional airplane ride.

We call this one the Unicycle. Sarah complains that it hurts her crotch.

My month old pedicure is still looking pretty good, but it looks like I need to shave my feet. I just never think to.
