Brookgreen Gardens

I mentioned in my last post that I like to go to different places on vacation so that we can see new things. One of the new places that we visited on our recent trip to Surfside Beach was Brookgreen Gardens. This place is a terrific field trip! Brookgreen Gardens is located on the acreage […]

Beach Vacation

I think I’m finally caught up from our week at the beach. Though I don’t know if I ever truly catch up with laundry! I must confess that I am not super fond of the beach. Strike 1: I’m fair-skinned and I don’t tan. And I’m not supposed to even try because I’m above average […]

When I’m 4…

My little one will be 4 in October. Just in case we might forget, she reminds us every day. She’s also learning to recite the months in order. I think she’s got them down from July to October. It is so funny to listen to her talk about being 4. In her mind, everything will […]

Vacation Packing List

This is my husband’s packing list for vacation. I’ve always been the organized one. So when my husband steps up and makes a list, I have to applaud him. (Though I do think of how I would do it differently.) But does it really matter that it’s got things to do mixed in with things […]

Curriculum Page Updated

Glue Dots

I have a confession to make. I’m addicted to office and school supplies. OK, so maybe that wasn’t such a dramatic revelation. It seems that many homeschoolers have this affliction. But I have an additional problem. I tend to horde them. I don’t know if it’s my perfectionist nature that causes me to want to […]

Busy holiday weekend and busy days ahead

I think we have jam-packed our summer with more fun activities than ever before. We had a wonderful church picnic on Friday evening. That kept us out late and needing baths after lots of sandy play for the little ones! Then we got up bright and early on Saturday morning to meet some dear friends […]

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star – Preschool Storybook Piano App

My husband gave me a very nice gift for Mother’s Day and our anniversary — an iPod Touch! I had never been that interested in iPods before, because I’m not that big on listening to music. I’m also not a fan of walking around with things in my ears. But that was before the Touch. […]
