Hellooooo out there!

So after much prodding from one of my friends (ahem, Cate) I finally sat myself down to write a post. I didn’t realize it had been so darn long!!!! The last time I wrote here, we had just purchased and received our curriculum from Moving Beyond the Page. It took us a couple of days […]

Hey you!
Sounds like things are going awesome for you all! And look at that snow. That must have been so much fun. Do try and post now and then. I love this blog. I really do. :>)

There you are! I’ve been missing you. I loved the snow but now I am sick of this rain!!!!!

I am actually trying to update my blog every once in a while now.

Iain is really looking grown up.

SOOOOO glad the nagging paid off – welcome back, you were missed!!!

The snow looks gorgeous – and totally foreign to me who has never experienced anything like that. Also sounds like your boys are growing beautifully.

I love your snow pictures so much! Amazing (your talent). And I can’t believe how tall Iain looks.

Glad to hear from you again! Love the snow pics!

That’s a wrap

What a week this turned out to be. It had some ups and downs but all in all, we had a good week. As you may have read earlier in the week, we started using a unit studies curriculum and got off to a bit of a rough start. As the days went by though, […]

Sounds great minus the crashing, head hitting, freaking out part. Glad that monkey is ok! You know, I so want to give the unit study a try. I think I will order a unit in a few days, and see how we do. I looked at the other unit studies on that review page and none seemed as mellow as this brand. So I think since we have a relatively positive review from you, we may try it. It would be something new to mix it up a little here. We are getting really anxious for spring to come, so maybe this would help fill the void. Hell, we have hit every museum here twice! :>)

Hi there Evie,

am finally back in the land of blogging, and not just living on Facebook headlines.

Just had a catch up read on your family’s comings and goings – sounds like the unit studies are a great call, and I’m sure that they will spark all sorts of tangents for your two inquisitive boys to follow.

Perhaps new topics to consider could be “how much weight can a shower rod take?” or “best landing for boys swinging over the bath”.

You’ve been passed the Happy meme if you’d care to keep it and share it. You can find it here.

I tagged you for a game as well. It’s a fun one for you especially because it’s about a picture! See my place-K

I’m glad he’s ok – yikes! That’s the wrong kind of unit study – LOL.

I tend to be good when other kids are hurt, but terrible when mine are hurt.

Our First Day With Unit Studies

Well, I wish I could say that things went smoothly. All in all, we really enjoyed our new materials. The story we read was great and the conversation that accompanied it was wonderful. The problem is, I think I’m being too schooly. I don’t know how to implement this without being schooly about it. One […]
