A Change in Routine

We regret to inform you that we will no longer be arranging hairbows at breakfast time. However, our staff is happy to assist you with a brief detangling spritz and brushup service. Yours sincerely, The Management.


  1. Well, the haircut is nice. I guess girlie isn't pleased?

  2. Precious, adorable girl! How do you keep from kissing those cheeks all day long? I am such a sicker for droopy cheeks.

  3. I just want to pinch them cheeky cheeks.

    Really makes me feel like an old lady....

    Her poutiness looks beautiful.

  4. Dude, throwing off my grove has a similar effect on me... just ask my wife. I am such a routine person! Of course, my pout isn't as cute, so my wife mostly just tells me to deal with it [smile].


  5. I want one JUST like her!

  6. ok how much do you charge? LOL, that face is priceless(:

    Bless her she wants a nice bow in for the day mom, cant you just let her win today?!...

    Hope you have a blessed day!

  7. Oh, *Mom*!

    She is adorable, even angry. Not many can pull that off!

    It's hard when staff pulls the old bait and switch on ya, isn't it Rosie? Unfortunately, I think you've reached where the buck stops so...time to adjust. :/

  8. Awww tooooo cute! She is looking so much like her Mummy!!!! Well, when she smiles! lol

  9. Maybe you can get some clippies with bows and such on it, to keep her hair to the side, then she will be happy! and you don't have to put it up..

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…

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…

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!
