What grade are you in?



I just decided how to answer this! And that may sound weird to some of you, but let me explain my hesitancy on being definitive on this till this very moment.
First of all we homeschool. That means I teach my daughter where she is and we move on as things are completed.
Second, we're pretty much unschoolers and I like it that way. There's no beginning and end of our educational year, we just do stuff all year round. So there's no year end promotion.
Third, two almost three years ago, my daughter was a young five. If we had done the public school option, we could have entered her the day after she turned five or the day after she turned six into kindergarten. But we weren't in public school and didn't have to decide at that moment how old she would be as she entered each grade.
Fourth, we're starting to do more things in the big wide world and it's finally time to pick a grade and work with it, changing the number each end of May so that people can put us in group.

Therefore, my daughter is currently in the second grade and will be entering into the third grade this fall.

With that announcement, I'm going to finish folding laundry and then make some lunch.

Have you made any decisions lately?

  1. I feel like I'm in fourth grade myself... Garrett is definitely a fifth grader, which means he's smarter than I am.

    I've decided to ease up on my self-preservation instinct and trust more.

  2. Most days, I feel like a middle school drop out. Trust is a good thing.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
