A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Amman is still suffering from that 'little' winter storm that we had on Saturday. Wow. There is still a good foot of snow/ice on the ground everywhere, because people don't know how to get it out of the way AND because it's not getting hot enough to really melt it all away. The sun comes out, melts a little of it until it runs down the streets like little rivers, then night comes and it freezes solid. I hate this type of weather. This morning, the embassy opened late. I was going out to drive Devin to the embassy so I could have the car so we could go to our climbing class... when we got out to the car, Andrew and Claire were slipping and sliding around on the 2-3 inches of solid ice covering everything. That car wasn't going anywhere. Poor Devin walked to work, and we canceled climbing class...so we're still at home. Well, at least we're getting some good school work done!
I'm just hoping that the snow melts soon. My printer ran out of ink, and they don't have the kind I need at the stores close to my house. :( I have to go really far in order to find what I need, and I can't get there because of all the ice. Alright, so MAYBE I could, but I'm not ready to fight all the idiot drivers here. Sorry, was that not nice? I love the Jordanian people, but even they admit that at the best of times, it's horrible to drive here. Add to that some slick ice and deep-ish snow, and it's nightmarish. I'm not going out until there's none left. That's final. I'm ready to get out and do some other fun things, but not until I feel a little safer.
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...
