Back to our regularly scheduled life

Okay, I know that since Bug has come we haven't had a really regular schedule other than naps and meal times but you know what I mean!

We don't get up on a schedule anymore, we don't do school on our schedule anymore, we don't end our days on schedule anymore.  What do we do on a schedule these days?  Eat and nap.  That's about it. 

It's enough for now though.

Bug loves kissing the baby dolls we have in the house!

Yeah, we took Bug horse riding.  bwahahaha  We have a horse named Flicka.  She is tame and completely safe for babies. ;-)

One thing we do here, a lot, is tickle.  Bug is getting used to it-and starting to enjoy it.  We discovered that she can't laugh when you tickle her feet though.  She just scrunches up her face and stops breathing.  It is seriously adorable.  For a short time because it freaks me out to see her not breathing!

This is her face when you tickle her feet!
I'd say that days spent like this are pretty good, wouldn't you?

More laziness

We had big plans for Memorial Day, really we did.  There were things we needed to do around the house, like rake leaves and pick up twigs.  You know seriously fun things.  Unfortunately for us there was rain.  The weather just wouldn't allow for us to be outside working.  Too bad too because I was really looking forward to raking leaves. 

What did we do instead?  N.o.t.h.i.n.g.  We watched movies, we played games, we napped.  That's about it.

It was glorious! 

There's nothing else to say.  It was lovely. heehee

Rest and Recuperation

Otherwise being known as lazy!  Sunday we went to church but went to third service so we could sleep later.  ;-)  Then we were just plain lazy the rest of the day.  The oldest two had a sleep-over they went to later in the day and the younger two and I finished the BBC series Robin Hood with out them.  I wish we hadn't.  It ended in a terrible way and I am mad at the series for making me care about the characters and then drop kicking me in the gut in the end. 

Okay, I'm over it.  *sigh*

Just be forewarned if you are going to watch it.  Not that I want to give anything away or anything...

One More Time

Our oldest is crazy about soccer.  She loves it.  And she's good at it. 

When your kids find something they enjoy it's pretty great to see.  I love watching her play, you can just tell that she is having a great time out there. 

So, when she was asked to be on a team that was playing in a tournament in another town, we said yes!  It was a 3v3 tournament which is something she has never done before but we knew and trusted the coach.  We thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about the game and herself.

We were right.

But not in the ways we thought we were.

The team that she joined was made up of girls that already knew each other and had played together for a while.  Did I mention that these girls are 13-14yo?  Yeah, you know what that means. 

Cliquish.  It's just what girls that age do.  They almost can't help it.  It was compounded by the fact that they all knew each other and then to add salt to the wound they asked her what school she went to.  When her answer was homeschool, they wrinkled their noses and and asked, "Really?"  Nothing more was said about it.  They all chatted and talked and she just stood on the outskirts almost participating. 

Now, to be fair B had had strep that week and wasn't feeling the greatest.  And, she is not the best socializer in new situations.  She is rather painfully shy.  So there were many things working against the whole situation from the start.

Add to that the fact that they could only get two practices in due to weather and scheduling conflicts and that equals one very uncomfortable young lady.  The easy thing to do would have been to let her quit.  But we are not known for doing the easy thing! lol  We assured her that she could do this and encouraged her to just be friendly and play the game.

Tournament day came and found us sitting in a different town for the entire day.  Hey, at least the weather was nice! lol  But the best thing that we saw was our shy daughter really talking, joking around, and getting to know these girls.  She ended up having a really great time and she learned a lot about herself.  As a person and a player.

They didn't end up winning the tourney, but B scored a goal and saved many from going in.  It was great day but I am glad it is over.  Soccer is over for the least until camp in August that is!!

New Hair

**you know the drill!

Here are pics of the new hair, well most of us anyway!!

No, these aren't the best pictures.  Unfortunately they were more of an afterthought each time instead of planned.  But at least I documented it, right?  Before you freak out, I didn't forget that there was one more girl that had her hair cut.  She just put it up and didn't want to upset her hair-do!

 Her hair was pretty long before and it is still long after.  She just had more layers put in it and it looks great! 

 She got new glasses.  She really stepped out of her comfort zone with these and they look amazing!!

 I forgot already how long her hair actually was.  No wonder she was so mournful over it.  It was a HUGE change.

It does look so adorable, though.  She looks so much older with it shorter.  I'm not sure if I like that or not!

Her hair still had wispy baby hair at the bottom of it.  That's probably because she has only had three haircuts ever! lol

I struggle with her after picture so much.  She is so pale that the flash would wash her out completely but w/o it was icky.  So this was the best I could do.  lol

Her before pic.  I am still waiting to get an after of her.  She has to get her hair just right before she will let me take a pic!!

What's one more kid?

**Yup, another post-dated entry!  ;-)

Wednesday we got to watch a little guy that we have known since he was born.  Well, before he was born actually.  We were praying for him before his momma even got pregnant.  Then when he was on his way, we prayed fervently for his safety.  He was born to grateful and blessed parents.  We have long kidded that this little guy has been betrothed to our youngest!! We are only half-kidding about that one.  ;-)

So, I had six kids for half of the day.  Wow!  It was b.u.s.y. in this house.  lol  Everything went smoothly and there were no problems.  At all.  it was great.  Our youngest got to have her friend over which thrilled her to no end.  Plus, they played Legos for most of the time.  In the past when this little guy has come over they would play Barbies.  I'm so not kidding.  They would watch Barbie movies, too.  It was kinda funny and kinda not, ya know?  This time I was determined to not let the estrogen in this house overpower him and send him home dripping in it!!  heehee

So, Legos were the word of the day.  And they loved it.  There were cops, robbers, moms, dads, kids, towns, shopping malls, you name it.  There was more imaginative play happening here than I have seen in a while.  It was great.

Bedtime that night was pretty great too! heehee

Bug was enthralled with this little guy and couldn't stop staring at him anytime he was in the room with her.  The other girls just assimilated him into chaos just like he was their brother.  School happened around all the hustle and bustle and it was mostly accomplished for the day.

We will get school done for the year.  Really we will.  At least I think we will...

TOS Review Exploring God's Creation

For my last review with The Crew for the year I am very pleased to bring you Eagle's Wings Considering God's Creation.  I am thrilled to end my first year on The Crew with this curriculum because we love it!  This has been such a great fit for my younger two that I almost can't believe it.


Here is a little from their website:
A creative in-depth encounter with natural science from a biblical perspective.
Adaptable for Second to Seventh Grade. A gigantic 272-page book plus Teacher's Manual with free audio CD!

That's not much of a description so here is the FAQ page to answer anymore questions you might think of! This FAQ page is a really great one, there are answers to most of the questions I thought of and the other questions were answered when I read through the material.  It is a seriously easy program to implement and adapt.


We received a copy of the the Teacher's Manual and a copy of  the Student's Book for this review.  The Teacher's Manual is very descriptive of what needs taught and you can just read right from it to teach the lesson.  Wait, before I get ahead of myself let me tell you what is in the book.  At the beginning of the book is a page About the Authors.  Next comes an article on Multi-Level Teaching followed by a Questions and Answers page.  The Table of Contents is wonderful.  It lists the lessons but also lists what is in the lesson.  I know, I know that's what they're for right?  Well, under each Lesson title they list the page number that corresponds with it in the Workbook/Student Book.  How cool is that?  It is very handy, let me tell you!

Okay, moving on...After the Table of Contents is the Introduction.  This Introduction gives you a great explanation of what the program is and what it is meant to do.  Don't skip the Introduction, it is very helpful.  Another must read in the Teacher's Manual is the Basic Teaching Procedure page.  This page outlines the different steps in each lesson in detail and gives a checklist for the student so you can be sure you cover what needs covered.

Okay, now we are ready to move on to the lessons!  Each Lesson is listed out just like the Basic Teaching Procedure page-in the same order-so that you know what is next and won't get mixed up when teaching it.  Under each of those sections is exactly what you need to read/tell the students for the Lesson.  I literally just read right from the book and it was perfect.  If there is a Workbook Page to accompany a section, it is listed with the instructions.  No looking back and forth between pages to find all the different things to accomplish for the lesson.  It is very handy.


The other thing, okay one of them, that I really like is the Evolution Stumpers.  These are questions and information designed to get students to really think about what they believe, learn the facts of science that support Creation, and logically question evolution.  I love it when curriculum teaches kids to think for themselves and reason out logical answers.

There are two more sections that I want to draw attention to.  One is the Review section which has questions to ask the student to be sure that they understood the material.  It's always a good idea to get the student to explain what they learned back to you; it solidifies what they understand.  The other section is the Digging Deeper section.  This section is designed to stretch the curriculum to the older grades and make it more in-depth for them.  There are more requirements for them and is a great way to incorporate a larger grade range for the program.

I can not say how much we have enjoyed this curriculum.  I love that the Student Book/Workbook has everything that is needed to complete the assignments(most of them anyway.)  There are a few assignments/crafts that require a shoebox or something like that but other than crayons, glue, and scissors there isn't much else needed to do the projects.  We have used other science curricula and we had to make lists of supplies weeks ahead of time to be sure we had the items that we would never use again!  It was frustrating and we ended up not doing many of the projects.  Not so with this program..

Oh wait, one more thing.  At the back of the Student Book/Workbook there are Crossword Puzzles that can be used as Review work.  You might even be able to use them as tests of sorts to be sure they are retaining the information.  It is fun and still challenging.  There is also a listing of all the lyrics on the included CD and a glossary of terms.

Did I forget the CD?  Ooops!  Included in the Teacher's Manual is a CD of Music that helps re-inforce the information learned in each Lesson.  Music is such a great way to retain the knowledge you are trying to learn.  I know because the girls have been singing the songs constantly!!

Okay, if you are super interested based on our loving the program head on over to their website and check it out.  The Student Book/Workbook and Teacher's Manual are sold together for $29.95.  I am not even kidding.  That is an amazing price for the amount of information and fun you get with this curriculum.  If you need to order another Student Book/Workbook,homeschool family with multiple ages/grades.

If you can't tell, we are loving this curriculum.  My 9yo had this to say, "This is the best!  I love doing it everyday."  The 6yo says, "Oh yeah, I love it too!  It's really cool."  Definitely an endorsement.  ;-)

Falls and tears

*Yes, I am post-dating more posts!  Last week just got away from me.  I had so many thoughts and happenings going on around the house but I just didn't take the time to sit down and write them out.

On Monday evening Bug fell and hit her head.  There were many tears all the way around.  Bug cried for just a bit but was soon over it.  The girls were not.  They cried off and on most of the evening and then every time they looked at her fore-head they cried some more.  They are pretty tender hearted to anyone getting hurt but can't stand it when babies get hurt.  Especially this one.

An interesting thing that started out of this is that our youngest started playing with her baby dolls again.  She has been carrying them everywhere and watching over them.  She has started feeding them, clothing and changing them, and asking us to baby-sit them.  I know she is trying to work through Bug getting hurt but she doesn't realize that's what she is doing.  It is interesting how a 6yo processes things.  We had a good talk with her about how babies fall and get hurt and sometimes there is just nothing you can do about it.

I love that they love her enough to be so upset when she hurts.  :-)

See her owie in her hairline?  :(

TOS Review Reading Street

We love to read.  Well, most of us!  We have too many books to count and at two of us can be found reading at any given point in a day.  So, when I was given the opportunity to review a reading program with The Crew, I jumped on it.  More books to read, yay!


Pearson Education Reading Street for 2nd Grade isn't a curricula that teaches a child how to read, as most are reading fairly fluently by then, but it is a program to help them read better.  It also broadens their knowledge base by introducing new words in the context of kid friendly stories.  There are questions at the end of the story to make sure they understood it and to introduce the terms for the parts of a story.  A short biography of the author and illustrator follow it up.  A poetry section is included in some chapters.

Another neat feature is the Write Now section.  This section is used to get the student writing and helps them to feel comfortable writing their own story down.  There is a model for them to follow and a checklist to use to make sure they incorporated everything.  A Grammar section gives them just a bit of grammar along with the writing portion.


Since I don't have a second grader at the moment I let my youngest use this to see what we thought about it.  She is a Kindergartner but reads at about a mid-first grade level.  We obviously didn't use much of the writing section yet but I look forward to when she is able to.  What we have done she has enjoyed.  She like that some of the stories are fiction and some are non-fiction.  It was a nice mix and exposed her to more informational type reading rather than just stories.  She liked the questions at the end because she could "prove" that she understood the stories and they made her feel like a big girl-just like her sisters!

We received Scott Foresman Reading Street 2.1 and 2.2 Student books.  I don't know what would be in the Teachers Books but we really didn't need them.  It was pretty self-explanatory and easy to implement.  The pages are full of colorful pictures and drawings.  It is a great mix of drawings and real pictures; it is visually very appealing.  The books are hardback which would be great for longevity but it made it a little difficult for little hands to hold on to it. 

PhotobucketEach of these volumes can be purchased here for $43.47 each or together as a bundle for $86.97.  There is also a DVD-Rom available for $86.97 as well as other resources.  There are Teacher's Editions sold by the Unit but homeschoolers might find them a little cost prohibitive and are not necessary to implement this program in a homeschool setting. 

If you have further questions you can contact the company and I am sure they can answer any questions you have.

TOS Review Wordy Qwerty

Reading isn't usually something that we worry about in our house.  It is a naturally occurring thing because we do it as a family with lots of read a louds and books on tape.  But, I am always on the lookout for programs that can help us out and that I can recommend to others.  There are so many families with kids that struggle or plain just don't like to read so I love recommending things to them that will help those families get over the hurdles in their way.

Wordy Qwerty is one of those products.  Here is a little about it from their website:

The long-awaited sequel to the Read, Write & Type Learning System,

Wordy Qwerty – Foundations for Reading and Writing Fluency, takes 7-9 year olds through the next steps of reading and writing fluency, and picks up where our award-winning software, the Read, Write & Type Learning System leaves off.
Wordy Qwerty

After successfully completing Read, Write & Type!, most 6-7 year olds are able to write any word they can say. But they may not spell them all correctly, because they need to know a bit more about spelling conventions and about how words are constructed in English. This is where Wordy Qwerty comes in. In 20 consecutive lessons, woven together with fun-to-play games and delightful songs that will stay in their heads (and an audio CD they can play in the car or on their audio CD player).

This page is a great overview and explanation of what Wordy Qwerty is.  It can answer a lot of questions you may have.  This page will give you a tour of Wordy Qwerty and is worth your time to look at.   The FAQ page will answer any other questions you have about this product along with system requirements and such. 


This program is a step by step process to help your child read more fluently.  The six steps are:

1.  Patterns
Children generate two lists of words by typing the names of pictures and sorting the words by a given characteristic. They are directed to notice the patterns," or spelling rules, by comparing the two lists. If they can't sound out the words or spell them correctly, the Helping Hands will assist them. Qwerty and Midi talk about the differences between the two lists and derive the 20 spelling rules which then are woven into the lyrics of delightful songs.

2. Karaoke
 Rhymes and songs are memorable and fun. There is a catchy song about each of the 20 spelling rules. Children read the lyrics on the screen and can sing along if they want. Often the lyrics contain examples of the words that reflect the spelling rule. Children are motivated to read the words while the song is playing, or while they are singing it themselves.

3. Recycler
Lots of words that rhyme can be made just by changing the first letter or letters of the word. Some words sound the same, or rhyme, but use a different combination of letters to represent the same sound. In this game, chidren learn different vowel combinations that can make the long vowel sound. They watch the RECYCLER drum whirl as it changes the first letter(s) of two rhyming words. They learn to quickly distinguish real words from non-words. The non-words are vacuumed away. Players that score less than 90% on the first try are asked to study the list of real words. If any are not familiar, they can click on the word and hear it used in a sentence. Then they are asked to play the game again.


4. Pop-a-Word
"Outlaw" words are best memorized by learning to recognize them quickly. In this arcade-type game, children find words in a 4 word phrase as each word appears briefly, along with non-target words, in a cluster of colorful balloons. As children click on the correct balloons, they "pop". The faster they recognize the correct words, the more points they make.

5. Write Stories
In these cleverly illustrated 8-line rhymes, children hear and see the first line, and have to type out the second line after it is dictated. They can see and hear the dictated line as often as they need, but get more points if they remember the sentence and try to spell the words correctly. These little stories are full of words that require using the spelling rule just presented.

6.  Read Stories
Here are some short, engaging stories that develop comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. Every so often, there is a word missing, and children have to choose among three possible words, the word that best fits the meaning of the sentence. These stories also include words that utilize the spelling rule, or the "outlaw" words learned in that lesson.


Each one of these steps is engaging and fun.  My two youngest have been 'testing' this for me and enjoy doing it everyday.  They are learning a lot and having fun doing it.  The 9yo is actually reading above grade level but is learning things that she skipped over by learning to read by sight so quickly.  It is helping her to slow down and really look at what she is reading.  The 6yo is a little young for this program but since she reads at about a first grade level we went ahead and tried it with her.  Some sections are too hard and she struggles with them but she is learning tons and is persevering enough to get through it.  I can tell that her reading has improved and she sounding out more words now than before.

The girls have been singing the songs all day long.  One day, the 6yo was singing something but I couldn't place it.  I listened for a minute and realized she was singing the rule for pronouncing "g" in a word.  I then heard her later using that jingle to help her sound out a word.  I would say that it's working!

We have enjoyed using this program on so many different levels.  I have loved that it is making my 9yo an even stronger reader and it is putting my 6yo on the path to being a fluent reader as well.

If you want to order this program for yourself it sells for $35.  This page tells you all that comes 'in the box' when you purchase Wordy Qwerty.  It also lists the system requirements for running Wordy Qwerty on your computer.  It does run on both Mac and PC but there are system requirements that you will want to check out before buying.

Also, this is the second part to Read, Write, Type that The Crew reviewed earlier in the year.  If you want to see what Crew members thought about that program head on over to this post on The Crew blog and then check out what Crew members thought about Wordy Qwerty.

Our Day

Our day started out waaay too early!  We had our semi-annual trip to the beauty salon scheduled for 9:15a.m.  Yup, I said 9:15 a.m.  Not sure what I was thinking when I scheduled that one but hey, we needed our hair cut! lol  We only go every six months so when it is time, it is time now.  It went pretty smoothly, getting five kids ready that early in the morning so I was pretty pleased with myself.  heehee

But before we get to the haircut appointment I want to share pics of what entertained Bug last night.

We keep her toys in a laundry basket and last night she discovered that she could completely empty the basket all by herself!  She was having great fun doing that until there was one more toy and a scrap of material left in the basket.  She was determined to get that toy and the material only she couldn't reach them.  She would lean as far as she could and she would bend over the side grunting the whole time.  At one point she was high-centered, grunting, and kicking her legs; but she wouldn't give up.  She kept trying.

She finally took one more try at it and ended up sliding her way into the basket.  It was pretty funny and she was so proud of herself at having accomplished her task!

She had almost cleaned the basket out at this point.  She was pretty focused!

High-centered and grunting.  :-)

Slid in and was like a turtle on its back.

Sitting up the right way and proud as a peacock!
She played with this basket for more than twenty minutes.  She would climb in and out and every time she would grin and clap her hands.  It was great entertainment for us as well!

So, back to the hair appointment...

Our third born, Peanut, decided two years ago that she wanted to donate her hair to Locks of Love but at the time it wasn't quite long enough.  So she set out to grow it out long enough to cut off and still have long hair.  This was the appointment that was going to tell her whether it was long enough or not.  Now let me just say that Peanut loves her long hair.  She treasures it and it is gorgeous.

Sitting in the chair she found out that it was long enough and about where it was going to be cut off to.  We gave another chance to change her mind but she was determined.  So, our hairstylist braided it and started cutting.  It is just below her shoulders and absolutely darling.


There were tears.  After having such long hair for such a long time she had grown attached to it and it helped to define who she was.  She was mourning the loss and was almost inconsolable.  She was glad to have helped others but was missing her hair.

More tears and snuggles with mom were on the docket for the rest of the morning.  We played with different styles and found several that she really liked.  Then we went on to the Locks of Love website and checked out some of the people that she could be helping.  We both shed tears for their pain and loss but I shed more for the proud feeling of my little girls' sacrifice.

She is still sad but it is getting better.  She is beautiful no matter what her hair looks like because her heart is full of compassion for other people. 

The braid before the cut.  Her hair was below her waist!

Starting the cut...

The braid after the cut.

Her hair after.  It is just below her shoulders.

After some tears. 
A hairstyle she liked. 
She has such beautiful honey colored light brown hair that I know someone will just love being able to use it.  I am so proud of her that I cry every time I think about it.

Real love for others requires sacrifice on our part.  It isn't always easy and sometimes it is painful for us; but if we truly love with the love of Christ we will gladly suffer the pain for others.

TOS Review Mad Dog Math

Drilling Math Facts is one of those torture techniques used to get people to confess all their deepest, darkest secrets.  At least that's how it always felt to me.  As a kid and even now as a homeschool teacher.  I really don't like drilling facts.  I know it needs done.  It's vital and key to their understanding of Math and to their base knowledge of Math.  It also helps to be able to do the most basic things in life if they can add, subtract, multiply, and divide well!

So to that end I am always on the lookout for something that will help me help them drill their Math Facts.  Okay, okay, I am looking for something that will do it for me but you get my meaning.


I think I may have found it.  Mad Dog Math is a great program that helps drill the facts with no crazy games or extra fluff and stuff; it is just the facts ma'am.

Here's a bit from their website:
Mad Dog Math is a supplement to any math curriculum used in any classroom, home school setting, or any home situation. The basic facts are a very small piece of the academic pie, but a crucial piece for future success as children move on to higher levels of math.

We’ve taken the basic facts and broken them down into bite-sized pieces that any child can master. A child progresses through a series of timed drills at his own pace. With each success comes confidence; with confidence comes more success. Students, for the first time, feel empowered by their gained knowledge and are not intimidated by math ever again. Where students once said, “Math is hard; I hate math!”, they now say, “Math is easy; math is fun!”

There is nothing on the market like Mad Dog Math.

The Essentials of Mad Dog Math

Enables children to master their +, -, x, and ÷ facts in a fun challenging, exciting, and motivating way
Math supplement for any math curriculum
For grades K through 5th; remedial middle school and high school
Standard, daily 10 minute time commitment from start to finish
Huge body of math facts broken down into bite-sized pieces any child can master
Applied system that works in every classroom and in every home
Students, teachers, and parents LOVE it 

I really thought that my kids would put up more of a fight when I told them that we were reviewing another math product.  And they did until we downloaded the program and they started using it.  After that I couldn't get them off of it!  They are asking to do it every day and their skills are improving.  The simple, straight-forward approach really appeals to my girls and makes it easier for them to focus on the task at hand.  Just today my 9yo was asking how much longer we had the review for because she was wanting to earn more stickers! 

Mad Dog Math

There are three levels along with a challenge level that can be chosen depending on the level your child needs.  But, if you are like me you make your 13yo do all the levels for review and challenge them to make the 30 second club on all levels.  (Like I said, I hate drilling math facts so they are not a strong suit in our house.)  Each level can be timed starting with 2 minutes working all the way down to 30 seconds.  I have one child that locks up when they are timed so she didn't use the timer at all.  The other two that used this loved the timer and would try to beat their time with fewer problems missed.

With other programs that are designed to drill math facts there are games and what not to distract the girls; Mad Dog Math is all about drilling the facts.  That's not to say that it isn't fun.  The girls love it!  It is just that with this kind of thing, simple is better.

Here is a video to watch that will help explain it a little more.

Interested?  Head on over to their website and read about the creator of Mad Dog Math and then check out the different tabs for Classroom Use, Home Use, and their About page for all the info you need.  Want to order Mad Dog Math?  Head on over to their order page to check out the options.  Mad Dog Math at Home is available for purchase and download here in three ways – a one-year license for $19.99, a two-year license for $29.99, and a perpetual license for $39.99.

This is one of those products that is so worth it.  If you are just using it to finely tune your child's math facts skills you could purchase the one year and get your moneys worth.  But if I had known about this a few years ago, I would have purchased the perpetual license to use for all of my kids.  It's that worth it.
