A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Enjoying our Who Pudding!
Continuing with our movie/book theme, we had another day of fun! I found some fun Grinchy worksheets (dot to dots, word finds, mazes, coloring pages, masks, etc.) and we played with those while we talked about why someone might hate Christmas (or other holidays/celebrations). Then we talked about the traditions of the Whos, and how they related to our family traditions for Christmas. They really enjoyed seeing that they correlated and knowing that lots of other people have some of the same traditions that we have! I also loved the comment from Andrew, "The Grinch wasn't mean because his shoes were too tight--it was because he was following Satan!" Sounds about right!
Then, we made Who Pudding (we made a sugar/dairy/gluten free baked custard--SOOOOO yummy!) while we listened to the book--I found it as an ipad app and you could either read it yourself or have it read to you. The little boys were happy to have it be read to them and look at the pictures while the big kids and I threw all the ingredients into the bowl for our Who Pudding! We ate that while watching the movie and talking about the difference between it and the book.
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...
