A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Since it's the last week before official holidays, we're doing just what you're supposed to do...lots of Christmas crafts and movies! :) We're having a book/movie theme each day. Today, we're doing The Polar Express. The kids helped me find boxes (or laundry baskets and a cooler) and we drew a track on the floor. Then, they got in their train cars, and while I read them The Polar Express (wearing my santa hat, of course) they drank hot cocoa "as thick and rich as melted chocolate bars"! We talked about what it might be like to have a magic train stop at your house... Would you go on? Where would it take you? and they drew where they would want to go on the backside of the train track. Then, we watched the movie! Good times.
After the movie, they spent the rest of the day playing train. They tied all the baskets and the cooler together using old scarves and pulled each other around. They had a great time!
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'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...
