I love those 'homeschool moments'. Like tonight: We were trying to get the kids into bed, and Josh finally surfaced from working on his 'Hour of Code', to show us how the model of a combustion engine that he had built wasn't working quite right--so he was trouble shooting it and trying to think of how he could fix what he knew was wrong. Andrew bounced up and asked what 5x60. I told him it was 300. Then he said, "Oh, so 5 minutes is 300 seconds!" Then he bounced off and began counting. Peter was hard at work taping a 'ladder' (a DNA model, actually) to his bed for his lego guys and small stuffed animals to climb up and jump off of, and Claire was busily organizing her books into piles: To read NOW, am reading, and will read soon. And while Devin read stories to the little boys, and the big kids were listening to radio dramas or reading books for their literature units, I got to work on my herbal studies. This is what happens at our house at 7:30 at night. So much fun! It's the little things...
Who Am I?
As a Stay At Home Mom of 4 wonderful children, I have the amazing opportunity not only to home school them, but to do so in many different places! I am married to the most amazingly wonderful (and handsome) man in the whole world! Together, we seek out, every day, that Joy in the Journey that makes life exciting!
I love to read and do reviews for Compass Book Ratings!
by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
