Something {else} New

“Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19 Life has some funny twists and turns. Just…

Over Halfway There… 100th Day of School!

Even though it really seems like our year JUST STARTED, we just celebrated the big 100th Day of School last week!  I am glad to report after all my angst over what curriculum, and video vs traditional that we have been really happy with our choice of BJU Distance Learning.  A lot of our success…

Some Homeschool Love…

{image via} I learned how to type when I was 16.  In typing class.  I think it was even on an actual TYPEWRITER not a computer!  We are living in a DIFFERENT world now.  As a computer teacher I started working with the cutie pie KINDERGARTENERS getting them used to typing on the keyboards.  Granted…

A WonderFALL Time of Year…

You would think a former teacher and bulletin board caption maker would have heard every Play on Words ever made for FALL.  But, no.  In the window of Pier One the other day, I saw a new-to-me one… WONDERFALL!!  So, I bring you… A WonderFALL Time of Year!!!  {And yes, when I saw the sign…

Spelling… My Thoughts on Abeka vs. BJU Press

While we did get all our BJU Press subjects in our huge Distance Learning bundle, I am just not a fan of Bob Jones Spelling.  It is a commonly known fact that Bob Jones Spelling is pretty easy, and Abeka Spelling can be fairly hard. It is shocking to me the great difference between the…

A Day in our {Jumper-less} Homeschool Life…

{via} I know.  You thought all Homeschoolers rolled out of bed mid-morning and just did a subject or two when they felt like it all the while lounging in their jammers or maybe their jumpers.  Right? Or at least something like that?  :) Not quite.  With three kiddos roaming the plains, no two days are…

First Day of School Shots!!

{via} Monday was the FIRST DAY of our SECOND YEAR of this adventure called Homeschooling.  This year I am not waddling around about to POP with Davis’s arrival looming on the horizon.   :)  In honor of our great FIRST DAY fun, here’s a LOOK BACK at this day in history…       And this…

Sharing our School Room… er, uh… yeah.

{via} You’re not supposed to be jealous.  I know.  But there should be a special support group for those of us that are schooling in small spaces.  The blasted homeschooling stuff just really seems to MULTIPLY upon itself.  Stuff EVERYWHERE makes me start to twitch, you know.  That’s when I start finding “great places” to…
