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

Sick Again

It’s been so quiet here for the last two weeks that I can hear crickets chirping, but there’s a good reason: we broke out of our comfort zone in a BIG way – and then we all got sick. Boo. I’ll share more about our trip in a whole post of its … Continue reading

Swimming Holes and Copperheads

One Friday a few weeks ago, Darrel woke me up with the news that he had decided we should go swimming that afternoon. This was huge! My children have never been swimming in their lives. We’ve wanted to take them, but thanks to Epsom salts, we know Zac can have FPIES … Continue reading

A New Way to Fail a Food Trial

Last time I updated, I said that we had started a green bean trial on Zac. It looked so promising that first day (after we convinced him to try one). Sadly, the green bean trial has flopped. The second day of the trial, I couldn’t get him to eat any … 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

We Love Potatos!!

On Thursday, August 13th, Darrel and I declared russet potatos a safe food for Zac. It’s his 18th safe food, and we couldn’t be happier! For his part, Zac adores potatos. He gets excited by mashed potatos, thrilled with hamburger hash, and ecstatic over French fries. For our part, life … Continue reading

Three Years on a TED

On August 8, 2015, I celebrated three years on a TED (Total Elimination Diet). If you had told me my TED would last three years back in August of 2012, I wouldn’t have believed you. If I did finally believe you, I would have curled up in a ball and cried. Nonetheless, … Continue reading
