Reading Eggs (Homeschool Review Crew)
When Jude was learning to read, we tried a whole mess of programs, and by the time I heard about Reading Eggs , he finally seemed to have a grasp of things.  Damien flew through learning to read before I could do more than remember it existed.  When this op...

Five Minute October: Remain
Remain. I'm drawing a blank. I keep coming back to write this one, and my mind just remains empty.  I don't have anything funny or philosophical to go with the prompt.  I guess I'll remain honest? The best I can come up with for any deep thought is from St....

Five Minute October: Try
Try. This one is pretty easy.  "Try" was the word I chose for my "Word of the Year" back in January.   My goal was to try new things, or still get started even if I knew finishing was going to be difficult (or not happen at all.)  I can't say that I've trie...

Five Minute October: Write
Write. I'm going to admit I've written this in advance.  I've taken this week off from blogging to celebrate my anniversary, but I wanted to participate, so I'm writing ahead a little. Writing is something I've always loved. I may have hated the research pa...

Five Minute October: Remember
Remember. That's an easy one for today.  What I remember is getting married, 20 years ago today. I remember my maid of honor's mother cornering me as I returned from the hairdresser, handing me a plate of food and a glass of orange juice, and saying "You're...

Five Minute October: Plan
Plan. One of my favorite parts of homeschooling is our field trips. Rather than taking a field trip day once or twice a month, we save up our time and pennies to do a longer trip in new locations.  We've seen 46 of the mainland 48 states in the last three y...

CTC Math (Homeschool Review Crew)
When Jude first started doing math, it was a huge struggle.  We went through several programs before finding CTC Math  and found that it checked quite a few boxes for us. It was online; one of Jude's favorite ways to learn - tick.  It was comprised of short...

Five Minute October: Truth
Truth. When I started out on this "Five minutes a day" thing, I didn't think it would be so difficult.  I knew the hardest part was getting started, but having a daily topic to focus on should have made it easy.  But sometimes, I spend half an hour trying t...

Five Minute October: Hold
Hold.  Hold on, time.  When did my babies get so big?  My smallest "baby" is seven,  my eldest nineteen. I'm hearing a lot more "Hold this while I go off to do..."  I'm just waiting on "Hold my beer!"  The wailing "I said, hold  up !" is less the wail attac...
