So I mentioned to the teacher “I always worry I they are not doing enough.”
Report Card Panic Time ….again.
So today after some talk we decided to take our selves to Granville Island. I have to say it is a great place to take the kids on a V-day because inside the Kids Market they have Adventure Land where you can just pay a few dollars and the kids in.
Hubby and I then went out on a date of sorts. But a sort of date is better than no date and we will take any kind of date we can get!
After a very adventurous weekend ( think little dog, big dog, skinny shady man and little old lady and cute police man *drool* and a photo line up) we have decided to have a family V-DAY today. V will not be standing for Valentines as we have our kids with us and it is also a province wide school day off.
Today we are making a reptile pie
With mud and potatoes and blue berries fried.
Then we smash a dragon lizard and a gecko
and mix them with cocoa
I put it inside the oven
with help of my cousin
Then we eat it together…
My little 7-year-old sweaty pie, hunny sugar, pumpkin, cutie wootie girl wrote this last month. I am not too sure what invoked such violence against lizards. I think a boy might be involved.
I get asked a lot by people how I am I teaching the children to ensure they are getting all the information they need. Some others have mentioned to me that most home schoolers miss a lot. I have sent them my blog url to show them what I am doing and to answer some of their questions but I have noticed that I have not put too much up on what I am using and what I am doing.
I made a post past week about the fur trade. It was rather tongue and cheek. So on this post I am putting what I am actually using and doing….then my husbands response.
This year is going to suck I thought because I am a fire snake.
metal rabbit vs fire snake
The rabbit is going to win. every time.
