Neat Guitar Lick

Here's a neat lick that I learned off the computer.


Home Sweet Home

Here's an audio of me playing my version of the song "Home Sweet Home".

My little SWAT team

Today I made myself some wooden army men. Here's some pictures:

I cut them out on the scroll saw and then carved them with a knife. I painted them this afternoon.

January 18


Today is supposed to be a high of -5 degrees. It was pretty cold this morning but thankfully all the animals survived. We have some chickens in our hoop house that don't have any insulation between them and the weather. Today we just did the usual... homeschool, chores, music, and everything else. Two days ago we went to the homeschool day at the capitol (that dad organized) and had a good time there. We had the lieutenant Governor speak, a Representative, Supreme Court judge, DPI officials and some other people there to talk. The reason for the homeschool day at the capitol was to get people to talk to legislators and get ready for next year when we plan to try to change some homeschooling laws in North Dakota. We got back home at about 10:00 p.m.

That's all for now,

January 13, 2007


This morning Jonathan and I cut wood over by the old house. We are cutting for next year's supply. Since the snow is a couple of feet thick we just stack it in little piles where we cut it and we'll pick it up later in the year when there isn't so much snow.

After lunch I wired in an outlet and two switches upstairs. The two switches will go to the kitchen light, one on each side of the room. It is a little more complicated to wire a light with two switches. You have to use "3 wire" to connect from the first switch to the light and then down to the other switch. That lets power go to the other switch continually so you can turn it on at one switch and off at the other switch or the opposite. After I did the switches Jonathan put in a uses fan/light in the kitchen but it turned out that we have to replace a piece of it that broke. It is a lot colder today than it was yesterday. That's why I'm blogging!
