- One of the things I really like about homeschooling is that I can tailor our curriculum to our needs - even if I need to change courses mid-year. Last year I used Peace Hill Press for our language arts. Although I LOVE their reading curriculum, their beginning grammar was just not for us. Aaron hated doing it, I wasn't thrilled with what he was learning, and we began avoiding it. So a couple months ago, I ordered the Rod and Staff 2nd grade English program and it is great! Aaron likes doing it, I like that it gets him writing more, and I like the way the information is organized and presented. I also love the way biblical material is woven into every lesson. It's great to not have to suffer through a year with a mismatched program just because it is what the school uses!
- Did you make any amazing Thanksgiving recipes? I made the Bobby Flay Pumpkin Bread Pudding from his Throwdown with Pioneer Woman, and Oh. My. Goodness. That is one good (though super involved) recipe. I think I gained 3 pounds just from making it though...
- I saw the most humorous sight in the parking garage at our library the other day. It was so funny to me that I had to whip out my cell phone and take some pictures. I appologize for the quality of these, but phone pictures taken in a dark parking garage are not the best. Anyway...I understand the value of good stewardship and taking care of what you have, which is why a lot of people get a steering wheel lock for their car.
I personally think the owner of this truck could leave it unlocked with the windows down and still return to find it undisturbed!
The first ornament to go on the tree this year!
