The typical look in my living room.
And on my kitchen counter.
Little flowers brought to me by a special boy.
Storm windows up, screens down. Too soon, I know, but fresh air smells so good.
April Fool's Day, green milk. Matt, I knew it was you.
Abbey presented me with this photo she took of Janey for her photography class. It captures Janey perfectly, and I was overjoyed to receive it. Her curls, her shy look, her sparkly eyes and little nose.
Thank you Abbey!
I am reading this right now and it's good.
No, I'm not going to home school anyone probably ever (never say never)-I love our little parochial school, and I'm hoping it will always stay special-but I like to read about learning and teaching and education. I understand more and more why parents are choosing to go this route, and I think it's just pretty darn cool. There are things that have been happening in education lately that I don't love-the introduction of the one-to-one IPad program in high school and junior high (don't even get me started, honestly) and I am not loving the Common Core especially for the younger years. And "school" (it's called school now, for even toddlers?) for younger and younger children makes me sad. I remember when kindergarten was optional and the best way to learn was to be at home with your mom. So much of it is NOT about the child and learning-which is the purpose of school, right?- but just about everything else (politics, competition, marketing, and money, ick.)
Do any home school moms that might be reading have any other good books to suggest? I would love to read more, I just bought this one randomly from Amazon.
Three days straight outside, ALL day. Sunburn on faces, fresh air in lungs, I LOVE IT.
