Week 3 COVID 19 “Plan”

I use “plan” with quotations because if I’ve learned anything over these last two weeks that anything and everything we plan could (and probably will) change- from what time kids Zoom meetings are, to whether everyone is feeling up to learning more in the morning or afternoon, whether we will get pulled into a lastContinue reading “Week 3 COVID 19 “Plan””

COVID-19 Homeschool Curriculum/Checklist for Pre-K, 3rd, and 5th Grade- Week 2

My goodness, how fast things are changing in our world.  Minute by minute you hear more updates.  However, what hasn’t really changed that much is what we’re doing here at our house.  We’ve still been reading, playing games, jumping on the trampoline, and cooking some amazing meals.

Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust

I love blueberries….any way you fix them. Growing up, my Grammy made a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry cobblers, and, occasionally, a blueberry pie.

Or another example:  I’m having a serious conversation about school and discipline with a friend about grounding from TV.

Adventures with Four: So Much for Cheap Entertainment 

Remember by post from yesterday? Well, to refresh your memory, the kids all happily played in and with laundry baskets and blankets yesterday morning, keeping them occupied for a solid 30 minutes. And I had the gall to brag about it.  A few hours later, as I was getting lunch ready, I overhead Anna askContinue reading “Adventures with Four: So Much for Cheap Entertainment “
