Random 5 on Friday ~ Aug 22

1) We had an appraisal done on the house we are buying. I'm anxiously awaiting to hear back. Why does this have to be such a long process?

2) We started an earthquake unit study this week. It's been pretty fun. The day we started it, we had 20 earthquakes that day alone in Oklahoma. Makes me anxious.

3) My daughter brought me the biggest wasp looking thing I had ever seen in my life the other day. Apparently she found it still alive swimming around in our pool. I had never seen one before and really had no idea what to tell her it was. After much research we determined it to be a tarantula hawk. We learned it is the state insect of New Mexico and happens to have one of the most painful stings of any insect. Sure glad no one was stung.

4) My friend and I have started walking a few miles several times a week. We downloaded a neat tracker that shows us our routes, calories burned, and speed. It sure feels good to know that I'm getting some much needed exercise in.

5) The county fair is in full swing. My daughters really look forward to it every year. This year we had 11 entries combined. My oldest daughter made a guitar out of sticks and rocks. I love the way it turned out.

I'm linking up at The Pebble Pond. Click below to check out other great Random 5 on Friday posts.


  1. That is one gross looking insect!! The guitar is cool though! :)

  2. Oh yes, I have to agree, it was pretty gross.

  3. Every year, I think about us entering something into the fair but I never actually get around to doing it. The guitar looks great!

  4. Nice. Looks like everyone is having fun.


Thank you for your comment! :)
