A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Oh my. My legs are tired! This morning, we got up and blasted through school so that Josh and I could leave by 11am... whew! We rode the teleférico up to the embassy where he taught his first photography class! It was pretty neat!
After class, we walked around the city—we found the LDS distribution center and got some hymn books and things... Then we walked to a place called La Paz on Foot, where I had an appointment to speak with the people there about arranging school trips and workshops!! It was amazing! We talked about everything we wanted to learn about and how we could incorporate all our curriculum—oh my! They focus on local culture and history, and indigenous flora/fauna. It’s exactly what I was hoping for! Very exciting.
After our meeting there, we walked down to another teleférico stop, but realized the rock climbing place was a block away! So off we went to check it out! Sadly, it was NOT what we had hoped for. Instead of a big gym with climbing walls like we had in Jordan a few years ago, it was a little shop that sells equipment and sets up climbing outings and courses out in the mountains. Don’t get me wrong, that’s really cool—but I don’t want a two day course in the mountains. I wanted a long course inside a climbing gym. Oh well. Time to think up plan B.
Anyway, we piled into a teleférico and coasted back down the mountain and met Claire in front of the church. Claire and Josh were supposed to be helping their seminary teachers learn English...but no one showed up! We waited until 5, when seminary was supposed to start, but still no one came. Sad! So we came back home via the grocery store where we got some Bolivian chocolate...mmmm...
When we walked in the door, i got a FABULOUS surprise: Claire, Andrew, and Peter had scoured the house! Wow! It looks SO nice! I have such great kids! They’re such a blessing to me! They cleaned the house and did all their homework and were awesome and responsible. Boy am I lucky!
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...
