In a way you could say we’ve always home schooled our kids. From birth we teach them how to eat, sleep, walk, talk, run, jump, play, and then the real fun begins. You realize that all along they’ve been teaching themselves. When we put our oldest in Kindergarten, we had become convinced that it was […]

This weekend we all packed into the vehicle and took in the recycling to a neighboring town. We had 3 large containers of it (and recycle as much if not more than we send to the landfill each week.) After that we took the kids into […]
Neighbors?!? fireworks woke us up at midnight. We thought the kids fell out of bed. All clear.
Before that we played on the internet, snacked on a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (Karamel Sutra), and watched Dr. Who. My husband fell asleep before 10. I finally shook him awake off the couch and got him into […]
This seems to be on my mind a lot lately. I may have mentioned it before, either on here or my personal Facebook account. We knew all along (well since she learned to read at age 3) that Keeley would have trouble in school. She’s gifted in reading. Before she even started school, she was […]

Is it just me, or didn’t summer used to last forever? From the time the dampness of spring rains settled into a blazing heat, we played all day, running in and out of doors, sneaking popsicles from the freezer, carrying errant kittens helter-skelter, tracing words in the dirt… for hours and hours until it was […]
We’ve been going to our local place since K was about 1.5 — so about 4 years now! Time flies!!
Last time (2 weeks ago) she read a few of the stories!
Well, Kindergarten screening was thoroughly unimpressive. I sat and did the paperwork and finished up just as she was done with everything. I asked if there was anything she couldn’t answer and she said she couldn’t rhyme RAIN. I’m thinking what would could she possibly rhyme with rain that would be common for 5 year […]
