I love reading with my girls. Mandy is a wonderful reader, too, and puts lots of emotion into the words. The Prairie Primer is a pretty relaxed curriculum, but I want summer to be fun for my girls. Plus, it's hard to squeeze school in with camp, friends and fun!
- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

We home school year round so we can take breaks during the year, as we please. We love vacationing while school is in session.:) Today the girls and I started reading On The Banks of Plum Creek (Little House on the Prairie series). The Prairie Primer is the curriculum we use to accompany the books and it is wonderful! Today we learned how to classify animals and plants, identify the parts of a tree (including xylem, phloem and cambium), what causes cholera, dysentery and hepatitis, and a bit about bartering, among other things. That was just in the first two chapters!
