  • July sure went by fast

    I know time goes fast when you are having fun, but what if it goes by fast when you are definitely NOT having fun? 🙂 Time has flown for me the last few years, and this last month, July 2005, has been quite the fastest, by far, in my estimation of historical events in my […]

  • Another little Quiz

    I found this via Kelly’s blog. It’s pretty right on, with me being an INTP with a quarter E thrown in, but most ENTP descriptions fit me fine with everything, exeception that I gain energy from being alone, internally which is Introvert, as an E gains it from being with others which is Extrovert. That’s […]

  • Wikki Stix

Wikki Stix are available to restaurants, and other businesses from their website. Restaurants usually have crayons and paper things for children. Do you know how argumentative that can be […]

  • Movies for Family

In our home we have several Disney movies, mostly the “older” ones, Toy Story, The Little Mermaid, and the ones before that. I’ve been alright with […]

  • A New Pledge, and other ideas on learning at home

    I’ve been reading different things about education lately … hence these ideas: I haven’t liked the term “Home School” or the answer to the question: “What grade are you in?” or “Are you ready to go back to school” and the myriad of others that abound. It didn’t bother me always to use the term […]

  • Fireflies

    We are expecting it to rain anytime, accoring to the radar it should be raining 😉 At any rate, it’s after dusk and I was outside and noticed a few lights flashing here and there around the fence in the back yard, under the Locust Tree. Sure enough, it was Fireflies! Sounds like a silly […]

He’s learning to read, count, and how to learn. He’s exploring and expanding in knowledge. Well, the same goes for […]
