Shakespeare in the Park

One of my favorite things about living in a college town is all the free events that I get to incorporate into our homeschooling. The theater program's Shakespeare in the Park is one that we recently discovered. This year's production was Romeo and Juliet. With Michael going into the 9th grade, we just had to…

Library Day and a Book Hunt

Everyone has a happy place. Mine is home improvement stores. <gives me the warm fuzzies just thinking about it> Auggie's is the library. When we ask him if he wants to go bye-bye, he yells "Yes! Audric go to library!" Asked him what he wants to be when he grows up... "A library." His sister…

Hi-Yah!

I haven't forgotten about Auggie's travel through our library's 100 Books to Read Before Kindergarten list.

Actual Size

It's a children's book! I swear! Lol. Actual Size by Steve Jenkins is mainly a picture book that shows the actual size of animals... or at least parts of the animal. They eyeball of a giant squid takes up the whole page. The head of the crocodile takes up 3; the third page being a…

Click Clack Cows

....that's what the 3-year-old kept calling our next selection from the library. He loves cows and has watched the cartoon, Click, Clack, Moo: Christmas at the Farm, multiple times. So when I saw Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin on the 100 books to read before Kindergarten list, I nabbed it as our next…
