Where Have I Been?

It’s been awhile since I posted because my laptop broke. It was working totally fine, and then suddenly looked like this: After talking to a Apple employee over chat (extremely unhelpful- do not recommend), I tried calling the local Apple store. Except apparently, even though it’s a local number Apple doesn’t let you talk toContinue reading “Where Have I Been?”

Poppin’ Good Time

This morning we read the Steven Kellogg version of Paul Bunyan. When we got to the part about the popcorn exploding all over, the kids thought it was so hilarious. I told them after rest time we could make popcorn in the air popper. Once quiet time finally came, I started thinking about what gameContinue reading “Poppin’ Good Time”

Fall Themed Free Printables

Are you hanging onto summer or ready for pumpkin everything? I don’t feel ready for fall yet, but I am starting to prepare some fall activities for the kids. Most are for Purpleicious’ drawers, but there is also a fall themed bingo game. I decided I would share them here now. Download buttons are rightContinue reading “Fall Themed Free Printables”

One week down…

We made it through the first week of school! (and we’re halfway through the second…) In science, we were learning about the weather, and on the day we read about the sun, we made these sun prints. Have you ever done these? They are pretty amusing. You place whatever objects you would like on topContinue reading “One week down…”

Living with Synkinesis from Bell’s Palsy

Most people tell me they can’t notice anything wrong with my face. I don’t think they are lying, but think maybe they’re not looking close enough to notice. Or who knows, perhaps they are lying to spare my feelings. For me, it is super noticeable, but then again, it’s my face. I can feel allContinue reading “Living with Synkinesis from Bell’s Palsy”

Homeschool Room Tour

The past two weekends, I’ve been cleaning and reorganizing our “schoolroom.” It’s actually the family room, but our school stuff lives there. Sometimes we do school work here, sometimes upstairs. I don’t feel totally done, but I probably never would. It’s as good as it’s going to get, so we started school on Monday. HereContinue reading “Homeschool Room Tour”

Getting Ready for School

This time of year always seems to put me in a funk because the anniversary of my brother’s death is in August, followed by his birthday in September. I wrote a post for the anniversary but didn’t publish it. Maybe I’ll post it for his birthday. So, I’ve been trying to keep myself busy withContinue reading “Getting Ready for School”

Read-Aloud and Audiobook List

Animal Lover’s love of reading, comprehension, and attention span for listening to books far surpasses her current reading level. I know that she will eventually “catch up,” so I try not to push her too hard since I would rather have her love reading then be able to do it well and hate it. AlthoughContinue reading “Read-Aloud and Audiobook List”
