Comment Jackpot

So the other day I logged into my Blogger account and there was a message at the top of my dashboard that was recommending that I should check my comments that were awaiting moderation.  For the past five months I had been oblivious that I had comments on some of my blog posts that were apparently marked as spam.  I guess Blogger thought I couldn't possibly be getting 12 comments on one post so it flagged the comments as "spam."

It was fun to check them, because as some of you other bloggers might understand, comments can feel like a boost of self esteem or a big giant hug. Most of them were from friends and family when I posted about my mom dying. I just wanted to take this post to thank those who sent a comment.  I can't believe I missed out on the love all these months.  It was a nice surprise though,  and they were very kind and thoughtful.  Thanks!

In other news....

There is none.  My life is very boring this week.  I've been educating myself on the United States Constitution.  I came to realize that I know very little about it.  I don't like the way the country is heading and I want to be an informed American.  I want to teach my kids about it too.  I have class with my oldest two every day at 1:30PM after lunch.  I have the following alliteration schedule:

Math Monday
Constitution Tuesday (It's technically not alliteration, but both words have the "too" sound.)
Writing Wednesday
Theatrical Thursday
Fun Friday

So every Tuesday I post on a different blog called www.constitutiontuesday.blogspot.com.  You are welcome to join me there and learn about the constitution with my children and me.  Today we learned about the Constitutional Convention.

I think I am also going to start posting random photos on my boring days because posts are so much better when they include a photo.  So here is the random photo of the day:

September 24, 2010
This was on our drive back from CA. We stopped at some river in a forest in CO.  The water was freezing, but the kids enjoyed throwing rocks into it. It was navy blue shirt, khaki shorts, and pink shirt and white skirt day.

A picture with my dad.  Even my dad had on a navy blue polo. (But not on purpose.)
