A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
The first funny of the day: In the morning, we always recite the pledge of allegiance. Yesterday, at the end, Peter belts out, "...with Liberty and Bushes for All!" Sweet! Free bushes for everyone!
At family prayer tonight, it was Claire's turn to pray. During her prayer, she thanked Heavenly Father that she was not an orphan. That in and of itself is not really funny...I'm grateful she's not an orphan, too! However, the funny part was the fact that she practically had to yell it because during her entire prayer, Peter was having a screaming-flailing tantrum! I don't know that gratitude for not being an orphan would be the first thing that would come to my mind when my little brother was screaming like a banshee....
And last but NOT least, the funniest thing of the day: I got an SMS message on my phone from the embassy SMS messaging system. It's used to advise during emergencies and get out important information to everyone very quickly. What did the message say? Well, apparently the king's cabinet got together to discuss daylight saving time. They decided that it was a dumb idea and they weren't going to do it anymore! HA! However, they decided this the night BEFORE the time change, so it really wreaked havoc on everyone's computers and phones that are all pre-programmed to change time in the fall and the spring! Doh! Lots of people were late to church...he he he... I've always said it was a dumb idea, but I do wish they would have waited until the spring time change, as I really like the fall one. I sort of miss that extra hour of sleeping in in the mornings...but, we still have plenty of sunshine and the temps are in the 80s F/ 25s C. Can't complain there! Gotta love Jordan! :)
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!
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...
