it IS something to think about! 🙂 by the way, i am really loving this show! the young turks is not a show by and for turkish people, as i originally thought…from their site: Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. Young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations. […]
i can’t believe how fast it came in! i’m really excited about going in there and figuring out what games i need to be playing with maeve so that we can get past the counting issue. i’m even thinking that on the days where we are just not able to get to a lesson, that we can still “do math” […]
i just saw a site that had files for making tshirts that said something like “homeschool grad, class of _______” it got me thinking…what “class” will my kids be? (at least tentatively, since it could change, depending on what happens over the years) so i was able to calculate for maeven pretty easily because i consider her 2nd grade, for […]
having a little difficulty with maeven’s math right now. nothing huge, but its something i need to work on. the problem is that she’s still counting while figuring out math problems. that’s not what she’s supposed to be doing in the rightstart math program. i had sorta known this but last week when i did a lesson with her that […]
even though i’ve not done very good lately at getting us into a regular school routine, today i did get maeven to start a new chapter book. she really loves these fairy books, but in between books sometimes she loses interest. so today i told her that i wanted her to take some quiet reading time in another room. (her […]
i don’t get horrid periods…but i’m crampy today and not feeling up to doing much. not to mention, tyren woke up last night for some reason (NO idea why! he’s not sick or anything) and stayed awake talking to me and kicking me for what seemed like 2 hours! not sure what time it started but in the middle i […]
ok i normally hate doing these because it tends to be info that just seems (to me) to be useless and just plain dumb. anyway, i just found this off of one of the blogs that i subscribe to, and i thought this one sounded interesting…different from what i usually see out there…so here goes: 1.How old do you wish […]
i’ve gotten offtrack with school, and with blogging about what we’ve been doing…we’ve done a little here and there, but not at all where i want to be. for one reason or another. anyway, today was a good one though! today we went to maeven’s new art class, which was “art in the park” with one of the homeschool moms. […]
for those who don’t know, my hubby, adam, is a video photographer/editor. one of his videos (this is the one that he was shooting here), was just posted on youtube so i thought i’d share it: he shot and edited the entire thing, beginning to end. many of his jobs he has to edit someone else’s work, but this one […]
if you watch pbs, you know who steve songs is. i just LOVE this guy!! he’s got great music (not like the crapola that milkshake played. ugh, i hated them! thank heavens they don’t seem to be playing them anymore on pbs. i seriously HATE the chick in the tutu. i don’t really know anything about them other than the […]
this week has just been more of the same. 🙁 maeven is still coughing up a lung and not feeling 100%. took her to the dr and i know she’s just got to ride it out…but its not making her all that inclined to sit and do any focusing on “schoolwork.” today i had hoped to get some stuff done […]
well yesterday was another waste of a day. we did get one spelling lesson done, with much crying. sigh not at all what i would call successful. maeven is still sick. its just not a very educational time. yesterday my mom, thank heavens, took tyren for a couple hours to play…but i didn’t have that time for “school” with maeven […]
i just found out about this from another blog. how cool!!! i think every city in our country should have this!! in the world!!! 🙂 but i’m thinking that the bikes would probably just get vandalized and destroyed in fresno, argh! we have so friggin many losers here that seem to think its ok to damage and destroy things that […]
since we had to stop maeven’s art classes (due to not being able to afford a fee increase), i’ve been concerned about continuing to provide her with art experiences, and art education. so tonite i got to googling and found a couple homeschool art curriculum possibilities. one that i’m getting more and more excited about as i explore their website. […]
this is friggin awesome! 🙂 match your beliefs with the presidential candidates. and its fun and funny too! i did it and only had 2 of my answers match mccain. the rest of mine were allllllll obama. didn’t really surprise me. i know the election isn’t this simple, but still, pretty neat to see who you pick anyway.
since i feel like blogging more, i thought i’d share a list i’m working on. i created this in the back cover of my lesson planner. i add to it when i think of more ideas. i’ve got a good list going now, so i thought i’d post it. these are things that i want my kids to experience or […]
well methinks this week is a scrub…i’m still coughing up a lung and now maeven is too. poor thing. i was thinking today she sounded just like me and i worried she may have asthma as well, but then i listened harder to her cough and its pretty moist. mine is dry and hacking. we are equally coughing as far […]
i so needed this. i was reading one of the blogs i subscribe to, and found this: “Attention all parents of multiple children, especially those with babies and/or toddlers, and definitely all new homeschooling families — raise your right hand and repeat after me: “My children will not always be this age.”… Babies will eventually detach themselves from Mom’s chest, […]
