Finishing up our Medieval History unit with @chalkpastelart - They have added an entire “I drew it and then I knew it” section to their site for both history and science.
It’s perfect for the hands-on learner (and for my kiddo!).

I have said it for years - it will either be the dishes or the laundry that takes me down.
Turns out I was right. I’m seriously embarrassed to admit that yesterday, in the flurry of book launch activity, I was trying to get the day prior’s dishes done (don’t at me) and slammed my ankle so hard into the door of the dishwasher that I fractured a small bone.🙄
My sons think it’s pretty funny  that their mom breaks bones while doing the dishes. 🙈
I think this means I get to stay off my feet and have everyone else do the dishes for a bit. 👏🏻 #dishesarevil #mombreak #seewhatididthere

My son and I are at the beach today. He’s hanging out with his friends, as they honor and remember the one they so tragically lost. 
I’m sitting off to the side, grateful he’s here, grateful I get to be his mom.

Today, homeschooling looked like this (plus rock climbing and a YouTube video about how freaking smart crows are). I’m not mad at it. #crowsmighttakeoveryall
