First Day of the Same

If I can’t manage to do regular blog posts, the least I can do is document the first day of the new school year. With the way we home school, it feels like an artificial deadline, but we try to keep it simple and follow our local church school schedule since they do Home School…

Pie Are Not Square. Pie Are Round.

I have to credit my brother-in-law Adam for the quote in the title. Today we messed with Math, and I desperately need to blog these things, or my progress reports will be a struggle. I was awakened this morning to a parade of three pairs of eyes, no, make that four – can’t forget the dog –…

Sneaky Math and Zombie Science

Today was a comfortable day with the sort of natural flow of learning that I love. After breakfast, Ian and Isaac wanted to finish a Lego project they started yesterday, so I said I’d do something with Elijah. When they noticed that I’d brought out the Magna-Tiles, they all decided to join Elijah and I….

Books are Happening!

I’m resisting the urge to status post these on Facebook, in order to give more attention to my blog. I’m also going to try to resist the urge that this means I need to come up with a lot of extra words. But I can’t usually help myself. Isaac sat down and read a book by…

Janu-Weary

  January has not come or gone gently. But, it’s been a good busy. I’ve found myself in the very bizarre position of helping to facilitate a high school Sabbath School class. It’s odd because leadership/speaking positions are very uncomfortable for me and my kids are so young still that I don’t have confidence in…

What’s Cookin’ This Week

Today has been pretty smooth. Elijah seemed a little ill this morning, but is acting normal now. I guess he was right yesterday. He’s hard to read. He sees someone else get medicine and thinks it’s a treat sometimes, so when he was saying that he needed medicine, but looked fine, acted normal, ate well…it…

A Stud in the Stacks

The good:  For breakfast, I made nomulous goat’s milk grits with sauteed onions & peppers & diced jalepenos (and a smidgin of Pepper Jack), coconut flour-dusted potatoes with sauteed onions and turkey sausage. For lunch I made lettuce wraps with sauteed (in avocado and sesame oils) portobello mushrooms, onions, broccoli slaw, quinoa and cashews. I…

Periodic Superheroes, Etc.

I’ve already posted today, but instead of Facebooking everything, I’m trying to be good and blog it. So a few unrelated mentionables:   I’m overhearing the boys play a new superhero game. They’ve given themselves interesting names. Elijah, 4, says, “I’m Vitamin D, but I can turn into Protein Man OR Batman.” Isaac, 6, is…
