Princess Hairdo

I used the "baby hair" tutorial on this website and used an old sock in her hair. She doesn't have enough hair or patience to look like a "manga" character, though. Princess will have to do. I also didn't have the patience to wind up bits of her hair everywhere, so I popped a scrunchie on it for a bit of foo-foo flair. Rose is running around everywhere grabbing her "donut" bun and asking everyone to "Ook a me shirt!" Pretty.


  1. Thanks for the link. I'm such a dunce at doing hair I always need good, easy ideas.

  2. good job! if i had the patience for longer curly hair i may try growing karrots' out...maybe...btw - did you know that's how they do it in the army? the sock? lol!

  3. Wow, that is really pretty. Thanks for the link. I love to see pictures of Rosie - she looks so spunky.

  4. She looks adorable - she's getting soooo big!!!

    When I read the part about not having the patience to look like a manga character I was imagining the kinds of manga we see around here and thinking, "well, thank goodness!" She is much cuter than any manga I've seen!

  5. Great job!

    * I got your message and emailed you.:)

  6. Wow you did a great job! Rose looks perfectly princess like! *smiles*

  7. Great job on the hair!
    I used to wrap a scrunchie around my bun too, when my hair was long.

  8. She looks great! I always loved that age! hehehe!

  9. I'm impressed. My daughter was born without any hair and it took several months for her to grow any. It's very, very fine and naturally curly. Once it grew, she cried every day when I combed the tangles out. Finally we cut it shorter and it worked out better. She was about your daughter's age.

  10. Absolutely gorgeous - especially the smile in the last pic.

    This would be an awesome hairdo for little girls climbing up tissu and on the trapeze, I will try it out and see how she likes it. :-)

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…
