Great Homeschool Convention Day 2

The morning of day 2 was an early one.  Sessions started at 8:30 and we had to go to the kids program to drop off Creative Kid first and we needed to grab some breakfast along the way.  We went down to the convenience store/Starbucks inside our hotel and grabbed…

It’s our second year going to the Great Homeschool Conventions Midwest Convention.  It’s held annually in Cincinnati, so it’s an easy trip for us to make.  We planned to go even before we sold our house and knew we’d be building our new home during this time frame, so we…

So I’ve been trying to get us back on track while my husband is in India on a work trip.  Thankfully Creative Kid is feeling better, chesty lingering cough aside, and I never got the full gambit of symptoms.  We’re spending our time getting back on track with homeschool after…

Moving!

So today was moving day!  Yay! We’ve worked our butts off to prepare for this day and I still don’t feel like I was fully prepared as my kitchen was not 100% packed.  We have done a lot though and because we are moving so early, our closing date has…

Don’t Dumb Down Language

Many times over the last year or two I get comments from shocked people that are seemingly baffled that Creative Kid knows a certain word and uses it correctly. I don’t strive to teach him words above what he can comprehend, but I also don’t ‘dumb down’ the language I…
