The hordes will descend

A month from now there will be a rather large contingent of unschooly types here for a week of wild, joy-filled frivolity. And naked tree swinging. It is going to be a blast, this pinnacle of summer, but… we have a lot of cleaning, prepping, mowing, clearing, etc. to do in pretty much every waking moment from now ‘til then.

A short checklist:

Purchase of the long coveted/ hard to find Inflatable Palm Tree Cooler: check…


Assorted junk and dead vehicle removal: partial check…


Taming the jungle: hmmm, not quite…


Sun Room clear out: a ways to go…


Crawl Space organization (to store toys and assorted detritus from house): don’t even talk about it…

And the most vital of all…

Septic Tank pumped: check!

Are you sure that's a palm tree?

Hey don't clean up for us! We'll just squeeze it wherever. :o) See you soon!

Mary - of course you realize this is unschooler cleaning. ie: making paths in the mess so people can get from one spot to the next. can't wait to have y'all here!!!

Rebecca - yes, a palm tree with two conveniently located coconuts.
