A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
We've had rain here in Jordan for like 3 days! It's been glorious! I am looking forward to how green everything will be next week. Hooray for spring! :)
Today we had co-op with all our home school friends. It's so great! I love having a full day of classes for my kids that I'm involved with...and yet not the teacher. I do teach a class, but none of my kids are in it. I teach recorder to the 10 year old girls. It's really fun and they're doing really well. A couple of the girls are stressing out, a couple of girls are somewhat bored because it's 'too easy', but most of them are right on target. Sounds like a good class. :D
This morning, though, I realized that I had signed up for the Preschool snack and that today was my day! GAH! I didn't realize that until about 8:45, and we had to leave in 15 minutes. Darn it. So, Josh cut a block of cheese into tiny little cheese cubes while I sliced up 8 big red apples and threw them in a bag with a little lemon juice, some sugar and some cinnamon. We arrived a little late, but it was ok. Apparently the little preschool kids liked my snack. There was nothing left when I got my bag back! 10 little kids sure eat a lot! Usually the kids get crackers or pretzels. I admit that I never give that to my kids, so I didn't have any on hand. It was sort of fun to bring a different snack.
Josh and Claire now have assignments to keep up their own little blogs. This is just as much for them to record their activities as it is an active typing practice. Hopefully it'll help them in many different respects. I always found that typing/writing about my daily activities made me think a little more about what I did. Feel free to check out their little blog rolls and see what they're posting.
And now you've enjoyed the first 'lame' blog post I've written in quite a long time. This is what happens when I try to update more often. You get the mundane. Oh well. It was interesting to me.
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...
