August was Stellar

In my life this week…

This week was kind of a blur.  I believe I spent part of it continuing to work on my new site.

I also continued reading The Year of Living Dangerously: Adventures in Homeschooling.  I am in love with this book.  It’s hysterical and actually has quite a bit of information about homeschooling that I’ve never known.

Oh, and then there was Family Game Night.  So. Much. Fun.

We purchased Wits and Wagers Family and let me tell you, that is a fun game.  If you have a family game night, it’s a great choice.

It appeals to a wide variety of ages, it’s fun, and it’s quick.  We played three times that night.

In our homeschool this week…

We wrapped up this year’s first month of homeschooling this week.  I have to say, fourth times a charm.  At least for us.

This is our fourth year homeschooling, and this was the most successful first month we’ve ever had.

We pretty much finished everything we needed to, and Babydoll couldn’t stop going on and on about how fun school is.

Score one for the mommy.

Questions/thoughts I have…

Can I really create my own archaeology curriculum for the year?  Can I really do an archaeological dig with Babydoll?

Sure, I’ve got the help of a book, but I really wonder if I’m cut out for this…

Either way, we get started this month.

I’m cooking…

Well, I’m not cooking this right now, but I’m on a quest for the best short ribs recipe ever.

The braised ones at Cafe Dupont were delish, and I must make them!

A quote to share…

I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now? – John Lennon
