Torn ACL Leads to Uncute Fashion Choices, Public School

As you know, I hurt my knee a few weeks ago.  It turns out I tore my ACL, which is a common injury among athletes, apparently. Also a common injury among dogs, according to Brook Gideon. I am neither a dog nor what one might call an athlete (although I’m super athletic in my head). [...]

Latest Innovations in our Household

Remember how I started drinking coffee? And how suddenly I became productive? I know you want to see what exactly all that coffee has led to. Here are three things, in order of how much coffee it took to complete them. 1. (1 cup of coffee) Who knew it was this simple? For years I’ve [...]

The Church of Henryism

Yeah so it’s totally normal for your 8-year-old to decide to start his own religion, right? (And it’s also normal for him to randomly choose ideas that sound good to him from all the world’s religions?) I cannot tell you how much I love finding lists like this strewn about the house. Can you read [...]

Go sit in the corner, Angry Mommy

I love homeschooling. I love the idea, the concept, the warm fuzziness. I’m having a bit of trouble, though, with the execution. For one thing, it’s just really hard to teach anything when Ramona is going through the shrieky “I have a voice!” phase she’s going through right now, and Zuzu continues her habit of  [...]

Sewing School

This, my friends, is what homeschool is about for me. I can pick an activity that interests us all — learning to sew — and we can spend days and days figuring it out. We got this great book called Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make by Amie Plumley and Andria [...]

Hair

Oops. In all my excitement over homeschooling, I completely forgot to give the children haircuts. (We fixed that yesterday.) addthis_url = ‘http%3A%2F%2Fworldofjulie.com%2F%3Fp%3D3099′; addthis_title = ‘Hair’; addthis_pub = ”;

Cumberland County Fair

So it turns out that a super-nice perk of homeschooling is that you can finish your schoolwork at 11:30 on a beautiful Monday, get in the car, and go to the county fair. And you’re there with the best weather ever, and there’s essentially no one else there. Here we are, feeding some goats. See [...]

Homeschool Curriculum

Monday was our first official day of homeschooling. Yes, yes, we’ve been doing it all summer, but I now we are official (that is, I told the state, so Monday started our 175-days-and-counting for the year). So far it’s gone pretty well. I’m still figuring out our organizational system. Also I didn’t really realize that [...]

The Time Has Come, the Walrus said…to Homeschool the Children

Yes, well, let me say from the get-go that I love public school. I pretty much think it’s the greatest thing ever. I love school in general. But public school — oh! such great times! You get to go to this building with all your neighbors and learn things together. And there are the pencils, [...]
