The "Boo" Look


Hairdo inspired by the Monsters, Inc. movie. Still a "baby" look, but a "bigger girl baby" look than the single pony on top of the head/ "Pebbles" hairdo. She keeps this in her hair better, too.

  2. Yeah, we kinda think so, too. She knows she's the "pretty-pretty," because that's what we call her. :]

  3. That is sooo cute! Oh man, I think she is gearing up to do a Ditz on you. Hang on for the ride!☺

  4. I love it! We wear "piggies" all the time! Baby girls are so much fun. I am so glad you finally got one. Wish Rose and Cupcake could play. Cupcake needs some training on how to deal with brothers!

  5. She is very, very cute. But then you knew that. :)

    I tried to talk the boys into letting me put their hair up, but they insisted that it was fine the way it was. I was bummed.

  6. Ganeida, Ditz sounds like a wonderful woman after God. If a little ditz-y. :]

    Rose would teach Cupcake the "pout" and the "do whatever brothers do" move. And you read the post where she climbs the couch all day. You sure you want Rose's influence? Pastors' families are s'posed to be perfect and all. (LOL... it's almost like some of those kids deliberately set out to defy that stereotype, God bless 'em. That's what happens when we have an unfair expectation, isn't it?)

    Mary, boys don't like having their hair CUT, let alone combed and fluffed into place. Girls don't like it either, trust me. I'm just training her into "this is life; deal with it." Poor thing cries every time her hair is brushed.

    Julie, we kinda think so, too. :]

  11. LOL Chris, since they're all grown, I couldn't tell :]

    DF, we just got a new VHS player so we unpacked Monsters, Inc from the VHS tape box!

    Thanks, Tracey!

    I think so, too, Grandpa! Her hair is still really short in the back though, even though it has never been cut.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
