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 […]

Adding Wood Stained Trim to Windows

Hi, everyone! Decorating the homeschool / playroom is going slow. It’s a frustrating process trying to duplicate what I envision in my mind, but rewarding when things do go correctly. For instance, while this room has three windows, the lighting in here seems off. I am sure it has to do with all the trees (that I LOVE), but the former color of the room was too dark and blah. I tested many paint colors […]

Industrial DIY Chalkboard

Hello! How are all of you today? Today I am going to show you an industrial style chalkboard I made for the homeschool / playroom. Actually, I am going to show the many mistakes I made on such a simple project. Basically, I made this project much more difficult than what it should be. Did you know that Home Depot sells already made 2×4 chalkboards? They have white boards, too. Anyway, I got super excited […]
