The New Way I Wear My Shirt.

I'm overjoyed that you can't do much about this. You can straighten it up for me, and I'll flip my head right back out of it. It's what allll the kewl two-year-olds are doing with their clothing. That, and putting CheeriosTM into our diapers so that our sister can't eat them, but Mom won't blog about that.


  1. He is awful Cute isn't he.. :O)

  2. Too cute...I remember mine doing that all the time. I love the smile...what a cutie.

  3. Cheerios? David did the same thing with peanuts. Gross!

    He is a doll!

  4. Oh my, he is *very* pleased with himself!


  5. Well sure, I can easily see that becoming a fad!

  6. Looks like on of those jacket things that we wore in high school to cover up the fact we were wearing tank tops which weren't allowed...

  7. I am sure I have said this before, but that kid has the best smile! He really does look pleased with himself.

    This may not be just a stage, though. A certain nine year old "bouncy" child of mine is always doing something weird with his shirt. You can often find him with sleeves dangling, hands tucked inside his shirt. It is very disconcerting to try and hand something to a person only to have the receiving hand come at you from under the bottom of the shirt!

  8. Yeah, I think he's mighty cute and clever! :]

    Oh, Mrs. K, I just now realized those little jacket-y things you're talking about. LOL because I'm about 18 years older than you are and have never worn any.

    Sue, I hope that *this* is not the look we'll get this winter. It gets COLD here!

  9. PS Sue, you go ahead and tell me every day how cute he is and I'll agree with you. :]

    And Mrs. Darling, unfortunately, it's a *big fad* here.

  10. Oh my gosh, that's so funny!

    Garsh, I feel like I haven't been around blogging forever! I've been soooo busy and just trying to figure things out right now. It's just a tad crazy. So much going on and I can't even blog about it. It's frustrating.

    I'm glad your kids are cute as ever so I can come here and read all about it. :)

  11. What a wee Darling, I just love his smile, it melts ya heart.

  12. That's a shame, Virginia, because I want to talk about it a LOT, too.


    Chris, he looks like a good little boy, doesn't he!?? Ha. He's a climber. And he throws things. The cute thing is a survival tactic. :]

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!
