  1. Homeschooling the tech addicted 5 year old...3rd month in

    by , Yesterday at 05:40 AM
    Well last month was a struggle to get back on track after the long (10 day) break for Labor Day. Finally, after getting back up and going, the 5 year old began to not want to do any sheet work. So, I went to the computer. And his tablet. And looked. And found joy. Apps that he LOVES that go over phonics. He'll play the same lesson a dozen times. Websites that have sight word games. Science videos, both about the world in general, and experiments we can do at home are everywhere online! He is actually ...

    Yesterday we went hiking in the woods for the first time in a while. Between the weather and allergies and crazy flooding/rains this spring, we hadn't really been out this year like we normally would be.

    Well this time I forgot something very important. Normally when we go hiking we prepare by rubbing tea tree lotion on our arms and legs and torso before putting our clothing on. Then before we put shoes and stuff on, I spray some stuff with a bit of deet.
