We're back, and raring to go!

Well, we sort’ve fell off the face of the earth for a while, but we’re back now! We took a trip to Lake Chicot State Park in Lake Village, AR. It was a nice trip! We had car trouble while up there, which meant our trip was cut short, but the weather was really nice. Cold. But nice.  We stayed in a cabin.  We drove to the closest Walmart, which was actually in Mississippi.  The bridge, in my opinion more...

Sickness, Sewing and Super 70s!

What do these three things have in common? Well, the whole crew has been sick for the past two weeks.  Sometimes only one or two, never all at the same time – we took turns. So, we didn’t get much accomplished in the way of school. We did our weekly bible reading, which had a nature study idea built right in – Deuteronomy 14:11-20 talks about birds that were deemed Unclean.  I believe in all, 20 more...

Oh, what we've been doing!

Last week, we had a great time! We kicked off our Homeschool PE – we did curl-ups.  We had to see how many we could do in one minute.  Can I just say, doing curl-ups makes you wonder if a minute really takes 60 seconds!  I managed to eek out 14.  I was proud of my 14, though.  Obviously, we’ll need to work on that more. The weather was quite horrid.  We had non-stop rain, with threats of tornadoes more...

Bread Photos

Ok, so in my last post, I said I would post a pic of our Pumpkin bread. Well, that day, I made what turned out to be Persimmon/Pumpkin bread. #1 Son labeled it Persumpkin bread.  Clever, Right? Anyway, the bread was sooooooooo good that we forgot to take a picture. (insert blushing face here) I’m slowly learning my camera’s features. I think after 18 months of ownership, it’s only right. I used t more...

Another Week has come and gone

This week started rather slowly.  The Principal of our school, AKA “Daddy” was home for the day, so it made school almost impossible. We unschooled that day. 😀 We had fun with our Art Study.  We’re finishing up our study of Mary Cassatt, and, well, I was inspired to do something… well… interesting. I picked a handful of Mary Cassatt’s paintings and, well, take a look – more...

Homeschoolers do PE?

After reading Barb’s motivating post about how she implemented PE into the homeschooling schedule, I set out on a search to find something we could do! I found this – HomeschoolingPE.com!! Hoorah!  I’m so excited.  This is awesome! This is put together in such a way that even I think I can handle it.  One activity a day, concluding with a Health research project.  I’m so excited!  Did I more...
