Review: Yearly Membership

I was given a Yearly Membership to from The Old Schoolhouse for being part of TOS Review Crew. This is something that I've been looking at for a long time, but I never could justify the money to get a membership. Honestly, I wish I had! Yes, this is something that I find worth the money. So what exactly is It's a curriculum site from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. You pay a monthly or yearly fee in order to have access. It's only $12.95 per month Read more [...]

Weekly Wrap Up: 12/8-12/14

So we've had a busy week. We're wrapping up lessons and switching over to hands on things like Miquon to keep the dreaded brain drain away, but everything will be light since it's time for us to focus on family and fun.

And it's a family I know won't look twice if he's acting a bit odd with his tics or vocalizations, and his friend has been raised well so Boobear doesn't Read more [...]

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

I've been missing - again. Things haven't been nearly as good as we hoped. Finances have been a nightmare, we lost a kitty to a sudden heart attack, which broke Boobear's heart (and everyone else's.) He's still acting out, not as bad, but he's still having trouble. Stress and constantly being around each other made Papa Bear and I snippy with each other. And to add insult to injury - we need new tires. One actually blew so we're on a spare and some bad tires. And my blog was offline because the Read more [...]
