And What is This?

I spent over an hour, yesterday morning, sweeping my porch. (Cough, cough!)
As I was sweeping, piles (and I do mean PILES) of the following substance formed. (Sneeze, sniffle, sniff!)

What could it be? (wheeze, achoo!)
This, my friends, is what accumulates on our decks, our cars and our clothes every year at this time. This is Carolina pollen.

This is the reason that NC is one of the top states for asthma and allergies.
Oh my poor, dripping nose!

Just looking at that made me sneeze. That's some serious pollen there.

Yuck, what a lovely perk huh? :) We have twirly whirly maple seedlings covering everything here, I spent forever raking them yesterday. I made a big decision last weekend, I am pulling my first grader from school starting next week. There have been so many problems and I feel that there is no point in her going. She has been learning more at home for months now, than at school. Wish me luck! I am open for any ideas or tips :)

Good luck Lisaloo! You'll do just fine. Go to www.HSLDA.org to find out what you need to do to comply with your state's particular laws regarding homeschooling. It is very rewarding.
