I’ve been loving the geographically themed What to Read Wednesdays of late… It should come at no surprise that this adoptive mama is aiming to raise globally minded kiddos. (see also: France, Africa, Mexico) As an aside, here’s what I’ve been reading myself lately: Give Your Child the World by Jamie C. Martin and At Home in the World Read More →

I’m blogging through the alphabet with A Net in Time & Hopkins Homeschool, and this week S is for Suburbia. One of the greatest perks of homeschooling is the geographical flexibility– one can do school from virtually any kind of home, and it seems we’ve pretty much tried them all. Despite the occasional changes of scenery, homeschooling together as a family remains a Read More →

Quality time is my primary love language, so for Mother’s Day last weekend Husband whisked us merfolk off to the seashore for an adventurous family field trip. Incredibly, it was our first time to the coast since moving back to the Pacific Northwest a month and a half ago– save for the Puget Sound in Seattle on Husband’s birthday.

Plainly, we closed on the purchase of a lovely 1972 rancher and are beginning an ambitious list of renovations to make it our new home. R Read More →

Homeschoolers near and far are blogging through the alphabet, one letter per week, with Hopkins Homeschool & A Net in Time. This week’s we’re on the letter Q… and in our homeschool, Q is for Quiet Time. I attempt to build quiet-time* into each and every one of our homeschool days– brain breaks, if you will. In Read More →

I see London, I see France… I jest! This week’s installment of What to Read Wednesday is focused squarely on France— perfect timing as their presidential election has been center stage in world news; London will have to wait. I’ve not yet been to France, but I have one French-obsessed daughter/pupil. Center Sister is verily enamored with all things French, stemming from a Read More →
