Big day

Today is the day we exercise our right to vote.  We live in this wonderful country were we actually get to vote for our leaders.  I think most of us Americans really take that for granted.  I know I do.  It’s hard to imagine living in a place were you can’t pick your leaders, practice your beliefs, say what is on your mind.  I…

2012/2013 Curriculum

Draw Write Now

Carson has been asking to draw and color more lately.  I heard about this program called Draw Write Now and so I bought the 8 book set.  We are loving it so far.  It’s really easy and it’s a lot of fun for both of us.  This is our first picture, a hen.  I’m planning on scheduling this one day a week and then…

Birthday fun

We went to the zoo with some friends today for Carson’s 5th birthday.  We had his birthday party Saturday and today he wanted to go to the zoo.  We invited my friend Kristen and her three boys, Carter, Camden and Cooper.  I know, that is a lot of little boys with C names.   I don’t think they even really paid attention to the…
