A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Lake Titicaca! The highest fresh water lake in the world! It still blows my mind that we live only a few hours away! Yes, the road there is TWISTY, but it's nothing new for us. I think it was less twisty than Sri Lankan roads, so it's a win in my book. :)
We started off our day on a bad note--as Andrew and Devin were up all night SICK!! But as no one told me about it until I got up at 5:30, and we were scheduled to leave at 6, well, we just went anyway! And I'm really glad we did! It was GORGEOUS! The ride there wasn't bad at all; it was really beautiful! The lake is HUGE and just beyond beautiful--I can't describe it, and pictures don't do it justice. It was BLUE BLUE BLUE, and full of mountainous islands. You could see snow covered peaks in the distance everywhere. Just gorgeous.
We arrived in Copacabana and wandered the town a bit. We saw a big beautiful church and there was a big parade going on that day.
We went to the lake shore and ended up going on a boat to the floating islands! That was fun--there were tables all set up and we ordered fish for lunch, which they caught and cooked for us right then and there! :) Yum!
While I felt really bad for Devin and Andrew who mostly just laid in the back of the bus and sat a lot, it was a really nice trip. It was fun to see the culture of the people and learn and SEE the history we've learned about this area. I can't wait to go back and explore some more!
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 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...
