Homeschool This Week – Dollar Tree Educational Supplies

Hello there! Just a quick homeschool post today. I’m enjoying the ten inches of snow we got for Mother’s day! It has been raining here all week, so it’s a nice reprieve. I have been slowly sipping on my cup of tea, while staring out the window at the beauty of the snow flocked trees and watching the deer play and relax in the snow. Ironically, it snowed on Mother’s Day last year, as well. […]

May Makeover Madness – The Mudroom

Yep. I’m calling it madness due the lack of post these past few weeks. I’m calling it madness, due to the fact that I have three projects in the works and each one has backfired in some way. I’m calling it madness, because I lost my mojo and need it back. H has been asking me what I would like for Mother’s Day. Every year I usually wish for same thing – a stress free […]

Poo Poo Head Fart Butt – Printable

How’s that for a post title?! Yep! The title of this post is a printable. Why? Well, a few weeks ago, k was in the office with H (H was working) and k decided to have fun on my Mac computer using the Photo Booth program. K made several videos using the mirror effect (it creates a mirror image of ones self). Anyway, he started to sing a song (that he made up) called, “Poo […]

Homeschool This Week – Font Making and Letter Writing

Happy Sunday! Well, I think we are all done being ill. I sure hope so! It took longer for me to get over my sinus infection and then early last week I got food poisoning – twice! Folks, I have met my quota for being sick for the rest of the year. Ugh! My little guy recently celebrated his sixth birthday and as part of our homeschool, I decided he should learn the basics of […]

Homeschool This Week – Books for Kids

Happy Days! THANK YOU everyone for the well wishes! I am feeling much better and I was finally able to get out over the weekend. There was some much needed errands that needed to get done. Because k and I had been ill, we did a lot more reading time – which is always a good thing. I would like to share some of our favorite books for kids.     What Do You Do […]

Sinus Infection and Vampire Eyes

Sigh. Yeah, about that title. No, this is not an April Fools post. Eh, the joke is on me actually. Read on… Folks, I have not posted because I have been ill. K is all better, after having croup and a cold for a week and a half. However, I caught a pretty bad sinus infection. Last week, I was in bed for two days. I thought I was starting to get better, then came […]

Homeschool This Week – Games

Hello again! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! K is feeling better, but it has been a tough week. I did not post a Homeschool post last week, due to my crazy insomnia, and this week k has been sick with croup. No fun. This past week has been pretty lackadaisical. K spent a lot of time resting, reading and playing LOTS of games.  I thought I would share with you k’s favorite […]

Galvanized Metal Letters and the Periodic Table

Well, hello there! Yep, not much got done last week due to a severe lack of sleep. That’s why there were no post. Coffee and super green juice can only do so much. Today, I was able to finish up project while taking care of k. He started getting sick on Monday and yesterday we saw his pediatrician and confirmed my suspicion; k has croup. This is the first time either one of the kids […]

Homeschool This Week – ROYGBIV

Hello! I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend. I thought I would start sharing small glimpses of what k and I have been working on in homeschool. Please keep in mind that there is no way I could write up everything we do each week. However, I will post about interest, subjects, or random things we are doing. Some post may be short, long, or only pictures. Before I start, k has a […]

DIY Art Display and Homeschool Room Updates

Hey there! Geesh, weeks sure do go by fast. With snow, a stomach bug, and k deciding that getting up at 4:30am was a great time to start the day, project work slowed down considerably. However, I would like to share an art display I quickly (and easily) made for the homeschool room and some room updates. Yes, it’s another Kona stain project. It was too cold in the garage to spray paint the many […]
