    The last few weeks have been quite the evolution for us regarding homeschooling.  Chris and I have had many discussions about what teaching our daughters means for my schedule and time, and how that relates to our goals for the future.  I also came to the realization that I don’t want to be an island.…

    I thought I would take a little time to go into further detail on our daily activity/circle time routine this year.  I mentioned in my post last week that we have expanded calendar to include more writing and weather to include a discussion of temperature, and to also talk about time.  We are still doing…

    One of the reasons I am much more in the holiday spirit this year is because it is an extra excuse for making crafts, and because of how much Nora enjoys those crafts. ย We’ve made a few of the traditional art projects (tissue paper wreath bring back any holiday memories?) and we’ve been making things…

    Nora’s barely two and, all of a sudden, all I can think about is school. ย It seems a little crazy and a lot ridiculous; five is just so far away, isn’t it? ย  Or maybe it isn’t. ย Because before we even start thinking kindergarten, we have to think preschool, registration for which happens the February…
