That's actually how I found out that 1)there was no secular homeschooling group closer than 2 hours away, and 2)that there was a lot of interest for one. :LOL
Last night, my husband gave BooBah's spinny chair a good cleaning. This morning, BeanBean noticed that it was all clean. He was thrilled, and is now doing experiments with cheerios in it. :LOL He's dropping them down through the hole in the middle (the seat is still in the washer) and trying to get them all into a small pile at the bottom. He's actually doing really well. :LOL
I am about 1/3 of the way through photocopying a book which I will then burn on a CD and keep forever and ever so that I can print out the same pages over and over again for the kids. I mean, you pay $60 for a book, as far as I'm concerned, I should be allowed to use it over and over again for my own darned kids!
When I finish, I will photocopy books which were specifically designed to be copied for kids in classrooms (in other words, books which it is legal to make copies out of) that my mom bought at Education Station. :LOL I just love the burner, though, because now I can put them up and they'll take up a very small amount of space... assuming, of course, that I can find a place that's out of reach to put the burned discs....
My niece is flying along through third grade English. She may well finish it before the school year technically ends, and be able to say that she finished three years of school in nine months. Go ChibiChibi! :LOL She's reading beautifully, too. I didn't get a chance to show her the math game yesterday, but I'll try to do it this weekend.
