Enjoyed learning more about you by reading the facts and your answers to the questions! Y'know, I don't think I've ever had Leg of Lamb... I've had lamb chops though - which I suppose is pretty similar.

Thank you for giving me the blog award. That's very kind of you. I've enjoyed reading about your homeschooling journey and activities. :-)

Thanks so much! What a great way to get to know you better. I like watching my children learn and discover as well. It really is a huge blessing to be a part of it. And, the fall is a favorite of mine too. Laughter gets me in trouble though. I tend to laugh too easily and too much...oh, that wasn't meant to be funny, foot in mouth...kind of stuff. Gonna have to ponder your questions.
