Homeschooling Update (aka: mom guilt part 5,789,321)

Saturday, April 27th, 2013 in Learning

Let me preface this by saying that homeschooling moms, you are wonderful. Those of you that do it well (oh and there are so many of you) BRAVO. I believe your children are incredibly intelligent, well-adjusted, social, talented, and much more. Oh and so are you. I angers me that people stereotype homeschooling so awfully. […]

Book Club with My Girls

Monday, March 4th, 2013 in About Me, Learning

Why can’t I be good at multitasking? Aren’t all women good at that? Why not me? For example the ability  to cook AND tend kids. Or read a book and talk to my husband. Or write something while trying to eat something. It just flops, it does not work. I start to feel very tense […]

Family Timeline Project

Abby’s favorite subject in school is history–any type of history. Past presidents, lds history, pioneers, Egyptians, nomads, etc. Homeschooler or no homeschooler I would look into The Story of the World history books to have in the home. They come along with an activity book as well. When we were first starting and learning what […]

Before we moved Cameron was really confused on where the world we were going. Costa Rica? Wait. California? Wait. To the palm trees? In California? No, Costa Rica? In America? Not America?

This is not going to become a homeschooling blog. I am trying out homeschooling this year, I feel confident in our decision to try homeschooling for a year. I do not know if it will be the right thing to continue to do after this year. This is a trial year and I am very […]

Farewell Kindergarten

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 in About Me, Learning

Throughout the year Abby has written on her own blog about her school year, we still need to add a thing or two, but she has done a great job. On the last day I kept on waiting for Abby to be a bit sad, but it never came. She is really excited for Summer: […]

A Mother’s Book of Secrets Discussion Part 5 of 5

Monday, June 4th, 2012 in About Me, Learning

Like I said we are meeting here every Monday to discuss the book A Mother’s Book of Secrets by Linda Eyre & Shawni Eyre Pothier. Because I was in real need of a “Mothering Pick Me Up” and this is already helping me out quite a bit. You really don’t have to be reading the book along […]
