The Bow MAKES The Outfit.

Just admit it makes her face look much thinner, and you have a friend for life. Extra points for saying that it looks like it complements any summer wardrobe and that we need several different colours to coordinate with various outfits. Super bonus points if you say S is pretty. Yes, the camera came back from the shop today and I've been going crazy snapping photos.


  1. Wow, can you believe how thin her face looks because of that bow? You know... I bet that bow would compliment anything she would have to wear in her summer wardrobe. You should think about investing in various different colors. Did I ever tell you how pretty she is? Man, oh, man. Looks like the mailman... I mean, she looks just like you!!! Ha ha!

    I hope I delivered the lines good. I get super duper points. Ha. (Except for maybe the mailman comment.) Hee hee...

  2. Totally gorgeous wee girl, she will grow into dem cheeks!

  3. LOL Our mailman is a thin ol' man with gray hair and a beard!!

    The milkman, though...

    Chris, the cheeks are just the pinchablest ever.

  4. She is such a little Sweety that she should wear bows in her hair all the time.. she has the beautifullest eyes. oops I don't think that beautifullest is a word but it suits her anyway..

    cheers kim

  5. She is such a beautiful little baby. I love the chubs on her cheeks. They are so kissable!! I really like that you can put an elastic in her hair now.

  6. No, she really is cute. I was just teasing you there. Ha ha... what a little chubbers! How cute.

  7. Her face does not NEED to be made to look thinner. It is perfect the way it is. She is the prettiest little girl I have EVER seen, and that bow will clearly complement ANYTHING in her wardrobe. Oh, wow, those eyes...

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!
