What has the John Deere Mom been up to?

Trying to teach, mentor a student teacher, prepare for science fair, and gear up for yet another round of state testing. It's not looking too promising.

Counting down to the end of school.

Praying for this little guy.

Prayers for Stellan


Making my way through this stack. Almost done!

Fighting and losing this battle.

Registering this guy for kindergarten.

Going on field trips.

Laughing at this.

Watching my sister and Jackie the Cow make out.

Making these.

And these. They taste great, but how does she make them look so cute?! Mine look like they have measles. Or worse.


Gearing up for a giveaway! (Check back later this week for details.)

What have YOU been up to?

Pin It!

I've been reading a new book, downloading angst filled music, and failing to keep up with the TV shows I have on tape. Fun, fun, fun. :)

Delberta said...

I have been spackling, cooking, sanding spackle, cleaning the kitchen, and drinking my version of a low cal margarita, tequila and fresca.

Wunderwoman said...

Oh wow, I have that same book by Jodi P, My Sister's Keeper. I really need to find time and read it.

You've been busy!
The peanut butter balls look good to me! YUM!

Martha said...

I love the pictures. I need a good peanut butter ball recipe, will you take a chocolate bribe for one??
This weekend I am getting over the flu while recovering from the 14y/o's birthday party/sleepover.

Betty said...

You were really busy. What are you doing with those books, when you´re finished? You should join Bookmooch.com, so I could mooch them... :)

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Cute pics!! You're a busy girl... are you taking time to ... ahem... relax???

I've been... deep cleaning the girls' bedroom. Oh so fun.

Emily said...

Looks like you've been busy. I registered my guy for Kindergarten this week too and I wish I had some of those yummy treats to eat!

Minyo said...

You are and have been busy. I notice the little guy is not sitting in a John Deere. What's up with that?

We're getting ready for our youngest to go to kindergarten next year. The chocolate looks wonderful :)

Rhea said...

Rhea said...

Now we know! I am going to have to figure out how many days of school we have left.

Have a great week!

nikkicrumpet said...

Well you've been busy. And the "morans" sign had me laughing. Sort of defeats the purpose doesn't it.

Columbia Lily said...

I WANT THAT SHIRT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Definitely NOT as much as you! ;)

Shelley said...

OOH. I'd love to read your books. Are you giving them away?
And chocolate, I can't even begin to know how to make those delicious looking morsels. I'm drooling on my desk blotter.
Thankfully, state testing is done here for this year. I feel so bad for all the teachers and staff while this stuff is going on.
Hope it ends for you soon.
Blessings.

Julie said...

My class never went on fun field trips like that. I'm not sure what I've been up to, mostly shirking responsibility.

Susan said...

I love your blog! Found you through In the Real World Venus vs. Mars.

Mrs Parks said...

O!
I have heard the Jen Lancaster books are GREAT!
I am excited to hear if you like them.
What are the white balls?
The brown balls look delish.

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

OK....The Morans thing! Hysterical.

And your list of books...Bright Lights Big Ass! Hilarious!

I love you...in a blog friend kind of way!

Z's Mom said...

OMG you are cracking me up! Morans!!!! Priceless!

I love your choice of books....um, can you say issues?

I finally posted today if you have time to catch up on what I'm doing.....all though yours sounds like more fun!

Becky said...

Your big guy starts kindergarten! Awww! They grow so fast!

Caroline said...

Looking at my HUGE pile of laundry and my cluttered living room and wondered if anyone else lives like this? Oh, and stressing about trying not to gain 60 lbs with this pregnancy!

Delberta said...

p.s. I would like to borrow your Jen Lancaster books please.

Susan said...

OH, I feel TERRIBLE you had to look at my horrid big TOE the first visit you make??? Thanks for visiting.. I'll be back to check in regularly! But oh, the reminder of only 46 days of school left? Can you tell I'm not a teacher??!!!

thestonerabbit said...

In the Olden Days, when I was working in the pub. school setting, I didn't have a minute to spare! I feel for you right now.

You do such a wonderful job of documenting your life/family through your blog! What a treasure you are creating for you and your family! I love it that you have such a sense of humor about the craziness in your life right now, too. I recall making 'xs' on my school calendar (counting the days left until the end of the end) starting with the FIRST day of classes! :) UGH! Those end of the year state tests! I feel your pain!

I'll bet you have a great little "prank" ready for your kids at school today, don't you? Have fun! Dana

Mrs4444 said...
