A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
My boys are extremely silly--and we have a really great time together! :D They definitely keep my on my toes and keep us all giggling!
The other day, after some reading time, I got a little silly with the smelly markers, and gave them beards and mustaches. He he he... They thought that was hilarious, so they dressed up as cowboys and we were all in the midst of a Wild Wild West adventure for the rest of the day!
Then, I was trying to come up with ideas that would get everyone to go outside and play more. Most sports here are hard for my kiddies to do, because it's usually HOT. What about water sports, though? Could I get one of those mini swimming pools? Well, I probably could, but it would attract mosquitoes because no one would ever empty it, plus my kids are BIG. So then I thought about a slip-n-slide! Slip-n-slides are sort of pricey and actually have bad reviews! Plus I don't think I'd be able to attach it to my funky hose. So, instead, I bought a huge piece of plastic sheeting, and voila! We have a slip-n-slide! They LOVE it and play on it almost every day! It's doubly nice, because it hasn't rained for like 2 months, so my grass gets a nice good watering every afternoon! Ha! They have SOOO much fun out there! One of these days, I'll have to join in. I'm just afraid I'm too old and I'll break my hip...Ha!
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...
