A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
We are blessed to be able to have a weekly art class via Skype with my mom! The kids love it and have done all kinds of fun things! Here is a sampling of what we've done for our first semester!
Who knew that some contact paper, some glitter, and some sequins could make such a fun project??
This was a big hit! Pin the plate inside of a shallow box, drop paint on, spin--and look at the cool result!!
Cute little robots made out of lots of 'junk'! The kids had a great time 'inventing' their robots and were so proud of their finished product! :)

We made holiday placemats by weaving paper and covering it up with contact paper! Very cool.
We love art time with Grandma and can't wait for the next semester to start! :)
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...
