A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
This semester, I've had the supremely enjoyable opportunity to teach a group clarinet class. I have loved every minute of it! The girls I teach are SO much fun, and we have a great time together. They learn REALLY fast, and I've loved every week when they come in saying, "Miss Emily! Look what I learned to play!" It fills my soul with joy to teach...especially music! :)
We just had our very first recital! Marking the end of the semester, we decided to put on a little concert for our family and friends. It was a great experience for the girls to show off what they've learned. They did a marvelous job! It was the best they've played! I loved the fact that they had a chance to perform in front of an audience.
One of the best parts: Andrew and Peter decided to 'greet' everyone. That's pretty normal for them. However, this time they used some of Josh's spy equipment and set themselves up as the guards. Everyone was questioned and scanned as they entered. I guess I'm glad I had my secret service on the job so we all felt extra safe.
It was a special experience for everyone, I think. I can't wait to start in on the next semester!! I wish I would have started this earlier! :)
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...
