Reiew: Week 10 of homeschooling

This week was an exercise in how to adapt when things don't go according to plan. It was also a week in which I had to pace myself. My husband was out of town for the week, and was solo parenting 24 hours a day. Monday, March 5- On Sunday, we landscaped our garden in... Continue Reading →


Review: Week 9 of Homeschooling

I didn't capture as many photos this week, as I misplaced my phone on Thursday and didn't find it until Friday. Those who know me, know this is pretty typical behavior.

Books We Read in February

This (plus a few from yesterday that I don't know the names of) is the list of books that Calvin read in February. It's crazy that we've read over 100 books in 2 months when we probably didn't read that many in all of last year combined. Prior to homeschooling, Calvin was pretty resistant to...

To the Man Behind the Scenes

Most of my blog is about MY feelings and about MY struggles and about what Calvin and I do all week long. Reading my blog, you might even think that I'm a single mom, because it's all about ME. Well, I'm not. I've got a pretty amazing husband, who sometimes drives me bonkers, but mostly... Continue Reading →

Review: Week 6 of Homeschool

The best week of homeschooling yet! I'm giving myself high fives for this week, and I literally gave Calvin 100 kisses a day (whether he liked it or not). This week I was Supermom and Calvin was my sidekick. Sunday- Ok, so usually I start out on Monday. But I have to give myself a... Continue Reading →
