My girlies (and I) love Harry Potter so even in Asia we couldn’t let this day go by without any acknowledgement. If you are a fan, you understand the significance of the day, if not, all that really matters that we had a fun Harry Potter themed party. The Sorting: To begin our day, we … More September 1, 2017

This is just a little interlude to explain the term wordschooling. Since most people haven’t ever heard this phrase it can cause confusion. It can mean many things, but the nub of the matter is that one who worldschools travels with their families so their children can experience different people and cultures. That can look … More Worldschooling
We love to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2nd. Every year we engage in things like making oobleck, eating green eggs and ham, watching his cartoons and, of course, reading his books (the favorite this year was What Was I Scared Of?) Our new project this year was making a truffula tree forest! … More Dr Seuss Day!

This was vacation week for us and ironically that is the time when I am least likely to take pictures. With so many little ones for us to watch over, I rarely have the time or inclination to take out my camera while out and about. Though the pictures do not show it, we relaxed, … More Vacation! 06/23/13 – 06/29/13
Miss 5 drew this of the two puppies (one girl, one boy) that she wants us to get for her. Is it just me or do they look evil? Are they foaming at the mouth? Making treat lists for 5th birthday that is 9 months away. Various fairies drawn by various girlies in various forms. … More 06/16/13 – 06/22/13
