Great Saturday Night

One thing we love to do is have outside movie night and a bonfire. Tonight was no exception. Zachary had been asking for weeks and the weather was just to darn hot. Tonight was perfect. Daddy made the popcorn, projector was set up...we blew up the screen and away we went. It is such a great activity for us all to partake in. The kids also ask about the stars and the moon, so we alway sneak some education in there too! Enjoy the pictures.

Some great school finds while on vacation

So one of the things that the Great Wolf Lodge offers is a Cub Club for kids. Lots of arts and crafts projects for the kids to do. One of the products they used were these awesome paint containers with a caddy. My daughter, Molly loved them. They are from Discount School Supply. I order 1 set of the containers, 5 per set and each container holds two diff paints. They have lids also so you dont have to clean out the paint each time. Then the caddy holds them all and has handles! The cost was sooo minimal. I got both the caddy, the set of paint containers and this stamping set, shipped for less than $ 30 and it was here in a day! I was very impressed with the packaging and the fast shipment! I will continue to use them for sure!

Vacation bound

So this morning we leave for three days to the Pocono Mountains to a place called The Great Wolf Lodge. It's a resort that has an indoor waterpark inside. My kids love it and can't wait. Although I am still not feeling 100 percent and last night seemed like i took a step back and coughed all night long! I sure hope I feel better today! I will blog when we return and post some pictures. Peace to you all!

Winding Down

So Saturday is winding down and boy what a day. Grocery shopping by 7 am....then Gym class for Molly (Part of school), then went to look at a house (love the size, hate the taxes), then we had a b'day party...all in high 90 degree temps! Kids are in bed and I am sipping a nice cup of tea (in our central air...) My throat is hurting a little still and I am not liking that! Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

So proud of Zachary

So Zachary has two toys in his life that he just LOVES...Legos and Bakugans. Today an amazaon box came with the Bakugans that he ordered with his own gift card from his b'day. About 20 mins later he came up and said he had given his little sister 5 of the cards and 1 Bakugan because they were duplicates of what he had. I was sooo proud of him. Ever since then he has been teaching his sister about them and how to play the game. I love it when they get along and just so proud of his sharing ability.

Nice break in the weather today!

It's been SOO hot here in NY this last few weeks. Today we are in the 80's and there is a nice breeze. On Thursdays, I have the three girls who live next door (age 12) come over and help out...mom's helpers. They watch and play with my kids while I get housework done and lesson plans. Today I actually got some painting done in the playroom!

Anyway, I peeked outside earlier to find them all in the front yard picking up acorns that feel already...they were having a great time. So nice that kids can still find fun in nature and the simple things!

Good Morning everyone - I was on Borders.com this morning (great sale on books by the way), as they have a great sale on textbooks, workbooks and more for school inlcuding homeschooling. There is "section" of their page on schooling caught my eye...here is a section of their homeschooling paragraph:

However, homeschooling is not easy and parents should consider several issues before making the decision to homeschool:

Do I have the time to educate my child?
Do I have the financial ability to homeschool?
Do I like to teach?
Can I compensate for what my child is missing at school?
Does my child want to be home-schooled?

What's your thoughts on this?

Great show on Natgeo tonight

I am watching a great show on National Geographic tonight on the Slums of India, more specifically Mumbai...Can't believe that there are 1 million people living in a 1 mile square area. These people are in such poverty, it makes me ache for them. All my children have, will have and did have, does not compare to what these children have. The working conditions, the living conditions. Lord help them!
