  4. I started it with my dd5 -- she did pretty well with memorizing the phonograms until we got to OU (I think) -- she really couldn't read the spelling words though (although she began memorizing them). I put it away, along with ALL the school books, until after we move. I do plan to use it again though! It was like Spell to Write and Read by Wanda Sanseri, which I used to teach spelling to my 3 older ones...but without the need for teacher training!
  5. We did birds awhile back and created a downloadable printable set that can be found here. Since then we've just been out every day -- no study, just wildtime. We did a little research on cedar apple rust (scary looking stuff!) and then collected tadpoles. We let the last of the tadpoles go back to their friends yesterday and I haven't thought of something new. Maybe flowers is the way too go -- the full moon the other day was the Flower Moon!
  6. Halycon -- is there a way to make the yoga an expansion of your acupuncture practice? Or since you're cutting back on that, are you not looking to really add something? Just distract...I know that feeling. I distract myself by going outside these days. It's free! :lol: SunnyDays -- have you tried NaNoWriMo? Nothing like a time limit and goal to get writing! joyofsix -- did you get certified to teach yoga?
  7. I love this! Well, not that your trainer wasn't useful, just that you're investing in the knowledge! I just did a board search for yoga & your thread came up. My dh decided to start taking yoga at a studio (after a few months of chiropractic that has helped tremendously) and so my new & improved life plan includes opening a yoga studio. :laugh:
  8. Well, that was a different out of the house schooling experience! :scared: Is rotating the parks still working?
  9. Thanks, Rosie. I decided to not spend the money now, but am on the mailing list. If you're signed up and using it, will you be sharing what you're doing anywhere? I'd love to get a better feel for it before investing.
  10. Paula and others trying this...how is it going? We do school on the porch whenever possible, but I haven't tried taking it to a park/nature space. Thanks!
  11. I just heard of "earthing" yesterday. I posted a picture of him barefoot in the snow earlier this year: http://pocketmousepublishing.com/2015/05/02/earthing-at-the-hydras-lair-on-the-first-morning-in-may/
  12. I was just logging in to see if anyone had used this! I don't understand how it really works. Do you get access forever or just the weeks of the class?
  13. We made a cake to celebrate. No guitars were harmed with me attempting to play...
  14. As a side note, April is International Guitar Month!
  15. I have a friend who did this also, with great success!
