Make A “Jeopardy” Style Quiz Board

Somewhere around our third week of Classical Conversations, I started to become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of data my kiddos were learning. We needed to review, but I couldn’t imagine how we could do so in a fun way that didn’t make the boys hate learning. After a few … Continue reading

Catching Up

Since its been so long since I’ve written, a little “catch up” post seems in order. Jed and Zac have both been in Occupational Therapy for their Sensory Processing Disorders for most of the year. The benefits have been amazing! My children are blooming, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. … Continue reading

Holding Pattern

We’ve been in a bit of a holding pattern the last month. Sickness ALWAYS throws our plans to the wind. After our trip to Chicago, the boys caught whatever cooties I came down with. It took almost two weeks for the sneezing and heavy mucous production to abate for all … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 4

Read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 first! Having spent $50 on the cab to get to the museum, we just didn’t have the funds available to take a cab back. Public transportation time! It really wasn’t that long of a walk to the train station, but after such … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 3

Read part one and part two first.  After we left the kids science exploration area, we decided to go to the Viking exhibition. The kids and I read the Magic Tree House series as bedtime stories, and one of the books covered Vikings. I thought this would be a great … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 2

Read the first part here.  Saturday morning dawned bright and early. Thanks to our late arrival, we were all sluggish and running late that morning. By the time we had dressed, cooked and eaten breakfast, gathered our lunch/beverages/school supplies, and ridden the shuttle van back to the airport, it was … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 1

On Monday, September 7th, I was wasting time between flights at work one day and decided to take a peek at what I would be facing for my commute to work the next weekend. My next assignment was to begin Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m., so obviously I needed to … Continue reading

Our First Month As Homeschoolers

At 9:00 a.m. on August 4th, the boys and I went to Jed’s first day of school. I really love the commute; we just walked across the house and into our new classroom! That was my first week ever as a homeschooling Mom, and I had no idea how it … Continue reading

The Wonderful World of Potatos

Do you know what I dislike? Working. More specifically, working so much that I’m exhausted while AT work, and so exhausted when I get home that I’m almost comatose for two days after returning. I took my computer to work with me last week, but, thanks to insane delays on … Continue reading

Controlling the Meanies

It’s been a long couple of weeks. We’ve been busily trying to get the homeschool classroom put together, since Jed has announced that he can only go to school IN a classroom. (Love opinionated kiddos!) Really our classroom is just half of our office cleaned out and dedicated to school … Continue reading
