I’m raiding Victoria’s Flickr page for some random shots she’s taken lately. You can see she’s learning Latin, having fun with photo apps on my iPod (some of these were done with the Hipstamatic app), doing art and some other fun stuff… I love her style! And here’s a few new rambings I have elsewhere… [...]

Oh what a long time it’s been since I blogged! We had massive heat and I had massive contractions and several of us were sick, plus the pageant was going on…. In any case, I finally had a minute to post and thought I’d do a little update. Here’s some ways we’ve been learning and [...]
In honor of all those HP fans out there, I had to share this delightful video of Daniel Radcliffe singing the periodic table of elements. Enjoy!
When will you need math? Here’s a real life assignment where kids are asked to research salaries and housing costs for cities they’re interested in moving to, and then figuring out details like what size of a mortgage they could theoretically afford.

First, she made this quirky video about binary trees and chopped heads here… And she also wrote a seven-movement piece about Harry Potter for her senior project at Stony Brook University. The first song [...]
What a summer it’s been so far! I’ve never been this pregnant in the summer and I have to say I planned it well the other four times! Since we don’t have central air, it gets very hot in our two story house (especially on the second floor where my computer is) and I [...]
Now that we know we’re having a girl, it’s a little easier to try to settle on a name. But only a little, because our family is firmly divided on which name to choose. For years, I had two names picked out for the rare chance that we might ever have a baby again and [...]
Kara over at Simple Kids wrote recently about how their family was preparing for the baby coming soon. She asked how others prepared for upcoming babies and it got me thinking. Not that I haven’t already been thinking about the subject! Fall is coming soon! Many of the things that are normal for other people [...]
