Graceful Grey Soon on Amazon.com

With a bit of good fortune, Graceful Grey will be available on Amazon.com when America wakes up on Saturday morning!

My supportive husband gets the credit for taking the 3 rascals this morning and answering my, “Honey, does my description sound good?” interruptions.

The boys are asleep, my daughter is mixing all the Barbie movie soundtracks while she does a puzzle, and I can relax knowing that I’m done with all the uploads!

I like elephants. They are my mom’s favorites. My toddler screams in delight every time he sees one, and we are blessed to see them LIVE about once a year.

What a great way to summarize our 4 years in Nepal with a children’s ebook about Asian elephants in Chitwan, Nepal.

Time for some celebration chocolate!

What I am Learning from Homeschooling My Kids, Part 1

What I am Learning from Homeschooling My Kids, Part 1

We have spent the last 3 years being slightly annoyed at my middle son, who always wants to be a part of everything anybody ever does!!! Recently I started having some one-on-one time with him, officially starting to learn letters. He often asked, “where’s sissy? What is she doing?”… Until I sat close to him and colored WITH him. If I am WITH him, he is happy.

He is a group learner. The rest of us will happily work on projects independently (which is why it took my so long to figure him out!). He is happy when he is a part of the group. So my husband and I sat down and regrouped–created a plan to do some group projects related to our history lessons. Here is a picture of our first group project, creating the world. He loved it.

But as you can see from my daughter’s face, she did not love it. Although we can’t please everyone all the time, we’ve made a slot for group projects in the midst of lots of self-teaching and independent learning. Over these next few weeks, I hope to build a habit and pattern that will include everyone’s learning strengths.

And what is most important is that I have learned that my son is a group learner…and when I make room for him to be part of the group, Peace follows. That’s our aim, peace in our home school!
