Pluto Day – Remembering the Ninth Planet

Remember when they messed with the universe as we knew it and said Pluto wasn’t a planet? Did your innards violently recoil at the suggestion and make you want to take to the streets and instigate a mutiny against the responsible governing body? In this case, it was the IAU (International Astronomical Union). I didn’t […]

Easy, Fun, and Cute Art Projects Your Kids Can Do for Valentine’s Day

Do you observe Valentine’s Day in your family? I keep on saying that we don’t but I always seem to have Valentine-related activities for the kids to work on when the day comes around. I also make sure to give a little something, usually just candy and a homemade card, so I don’t really understand […]

You Might Be A Kindred Spirit To Anne Shirley If…

Did you grow up reading the Anne of Green Gables books? Did you become obsessed with Anne Shirley and wish to be her best friend? Did you feel as though you had many similarities with her? Were you convinced that she would have recognized you for a kindred spirit if she had met you? You […]

How You Get More from Doodling

I don’t know how things work in classrooms now with all the technology available. Do students still use notebooks or do they just record the lecture in their mobile devices? Hmm, I wouldn’t like that at all. When I was teaching, I didn’t allow my students to have their phones, ipods, or laptops out, except […]

Are You a “Look at the Moon” Kind of Person?

Somebody recently tagged me on an image shared on Facebook. It mainly had the text, “I’m such a ‘Look at the moon’ kind of person.” She was probably alluding to that time I urged people to take the time to look at the full moon. It was really big, round, and bright that night. I […]

Three Fun Ways to Celebrate Crêpe Day

One of our homeschool quirks is that we like to learn about and celebrate silly or obscure holidays. For February 2, we had several options. Groundhog Day, Crêpe Day, Dogsled Day, and Play Your Ukelele Day are just some that I can recall from the list I consulted. Groundhog Day and Dogsled Day weren’t very […]

We’re Back – with Bells on!

Let’s pretend that I didn’t have a three-almost four-year break in blogging. Let’s pretend that we’re continuing the conversation we had yesterday. Can we do that? I’ll zip through the reason: deleted files in the server – it’s still a mystery how that happened. Since my blog wasn’t a paying client, it didn’t get priority. […]

Happy Food: Mini Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

How does cinnamon affect you? They say that it’s a very healthy spice, and while I’m sure that’s true, cinnamon usually has another kind of positive effect on many people. Its smell and taste evoke the atmosphere of Christmas. This is certainly true for me. I just love the aroma of baking with cinnamon. Cinnamon […]

blue and yellow bubble bath

Summer Fun: Colored Bubble Bath

Since summer began, Marguerite has been having bubble baths about twice a week. She’d have one everyday if given the choice, but we don’t want to use up so much water. Anyway, now that it’s May, bubble baths are getting old, so to make them more fun, I looked for a way to make the […]

hummus and chapati

Healthy Snack: Hummus and Chapati

My husband grew up in Dubai and often has a hankering for Middle Eastern or Mediterranean dishes. I love food that’s rich in flavor, so I’m usually ready to fall in with these cravings when he has them. Something from his childhood that we can easily make at home is hummus, and except for the […]

On y va à Paris – Exploring Paper Paris

Do you have any place on this planet that has you aching to be there – at least, when you pause to indulge in fancies and think about it? I have several, but I think it’s pretty accurate to say that at the top of my list is Paris. I love it with a passion […]
