A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Sometimes I feel like I’m in Fort Knox here! You have to go through two doors in order to get to our front door. And the only way we know anyone is here for us is if they’re right outside OUR door and can push the door buzzer. The only way you can get in the other doors is to have a key. So how are we supposed to have visitors? Hm. The extra security is needed, though, I suppose. Sometimes I feel sad that I can’t take pictures of lots of different things, but what can you do? I will probably have a lot less pictures here than I’ve had in the past, but I suppose that’s ok. The internet isn’t fast enough to really handle a lot of picture posting anyway…once we actually GET the internet…
It was a good day for Summer camp for the kids! Peter stayed, happily, the entire time! Woohoo! It’s a good thing, too, as there was a 3 hour briefing that he would NOT have lasted through. I barely lasted through it! Sheesh! My eyes kept crossing. (I didn’t take any sleep aids last night since I had had such a nice sleep the night before…and, well, I didn’t sleep well…but maybe that will help me be tired and sleep well tonight? Blah.) We came to pick up the kids after camp, and they were all happy and ready for lunch!
We got home and had some fun exploring the yard:
Put the Lime in the Coconut and drink it all up...
We have all sorts of fun things there! A lemon/lime tree (not sure which, really), mint, lavender…and I’m thinking I’m going to try planting some basil and thyme there because I found some seeds at the supermarket on Monday. Woohoo!
Today’s fun: Art and Boomwhackers!! We drew and colored pictures, then we did a music lesson with the Boomwhackers. Those things are COOOL and we had a blast! I can’t believe I didn’t get pictures…
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...
