I enjoy the topics of parenting, vegan food, homeschooling (I think I could run my own school with the amount of curriculum, books, manipulatives, etc. that I own. I have to stay away from the teacher supply stores. And my Discount School Supply catalog is dog-eared to death right now with all the many things I can't wait to order. I would most describe us as "unschoolers," yet maybe "unschoolers who love curriculum" - can we just be that? I have an elementary ed degree, and it's all too ingrained within me.), scrapbooking, blogging, missions, books, Friday Night Lights (my current favorite show), health, adoption (have never adopted a child; I just find it all very interesting), travel, and conscious living (which, for me, involves living in a Christ-directed way and considering how my actions and life affect the earth)...and I don't know, tons of other things - my brain isn't working too well because it's late; I do have an embarrassing interest in "celebrity news," but I'm trying to cut back :). I am so glad I don't strive for perfection because I'd be falling way short...but I like my life and with God's help, I hope I am not too far off the path.
"Dash" is the sweetest, smartest little 4 year old BOOGER. Left to his own devices, he can and will wreak havoc of many proportions...cuddle up next to him or play a game with him (We really like Guess Who?), and he will melt your heart. He likes dinosaurs and being active outside.
"Sissy" is 2, and she likes to be with her Momma. She does really enjoy playing with her brothers and at some points in the day, she'll wander off with them for awhile, but she mostly wants to do what I'm doing. She's sweet and helpful (although a typical 2 year old and sometimes demanding and stubborn.)
I love my kids.
And during our Space Unit, putting the post-it stars in order.
I haven't blogged much yet about specific "school" activities we do, but here are a few "learning" related posts.
What are our summer plans? We don't run by a "school year" so - more of the same. I hope we get to take a few really fun vacations and learning field trips; I have a few things up my sleeve. My husband and I are in "how to make life simpler and more productive" mode so I'll be sharing more of our journey toward that. And I am all about, this summer, going swimming. There just aren't many places to go swimming where we live, and we always end up making it through the entire summer, having only swam a handful of times. Not this summer, by golly.
Okay, I feel like I need a "conclusion," but I really am tired now. Therefore, I conclude. For now.
