A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Monday! For the rest of the world, this is the first day of the week. For us, it’s day 2! I took GABA, Melatonin AND Benadryll before going to bed last night and had a WONDERFUL nights’ sleep! Normally, I wouldn’t go that far, but I wasn’t remotely tired at bedtime, and that’s a BAD thing. I just need to get myself into a normal track and then I’ll be good to go. I feel SO much better today, though, so hopefully it’ll be all good now.
It was day 2 of summer camp. I took the kids and dropped them off, and Peter was really excited to get his little band with his name on it… He even told me to go! So, I started to leave and he freaked out, so I just took him with me. Devin and I were heading out on a 2 hour bus tour of the city with the CLO, and I didn’t feel comfortable leaving Peter if he was going to be a screamie the whole time. I think he was really bored most of the time, which is a good thing. Devin and I feel a little more oriented to things. It always takes me SO LONG to get my bearings and that’s SO frustrating! My goal this post, though, is to just jump right in and not be afraid. I do NOT like getting lost, but it really is helpful, so I’m going to just go out and do and try new things. I won’t be stupid about it, but I need to explore and find things out. We’re going to be here for a long time. I should take advantage of things!
We started into a super fun math curriculum today: The Life of Fred. The kids LOVE it! They keep begging me to read it to them! Hooray! I also taught them how to do some jump roping! I turned the rope with one of the littles (Andrew OR Peter!!!!) and Josh and Claire would jump in and jump together! We did it all afternoon and they were definitely NOT finished when I said we had to stop! J
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...
