Dream a Little Dream of 2013

After HOURS of fighting with my computer and iPhoto, my family photo album for 2013 is FINALLY done! I’m usually a bit more on top of it than this, but whatever. At least I did it. Bowden Family 2013 Album from Mike Bowden on Vimeo. Music credit: Dream a Little Dream of Me (cover), by Charles... read more

Confession: I’m Not Cut Out for Motherhood

Now it’s time to jump back to my more serious confession that I mentioned previously. I actually wrote this days ago when negativity from lack of sleep was driving me, so I decided to hold off on publishing it until I could have a better perspective. And today I do. But my post isn’t any less true, so here it is. Confession: I’m not cut out for motherhood. Being a parent is SO hard. Or... read more

How I’m Spending My Saturday Night…

Hey! I may like to karaoke, but I never said I was any good at it. All my wine is gone... read more

Confession: I’ve turned into a fangirl

I had a much more serious confession that I wanted to blog about earlier today, but now I’ve changed my mind. No worries. I’ll come back to the more serious one. Cause that shit surely isn’t going away. I’m just currently more in the mood for this one. So… My confession is that I’ve become a bit of a fangirl. Okay. Maybe not totally fangirl. I won’t be tackling... read more

Bye Bye Milky Boobs

Well, it is official. After almost 7 years of breastfeeding without any downtime, my boobie-ing days are over. We are 3 days into the weaning process, and Addison is handling it very well. It was just time. And even though I have BEEN ready for this, it is definitely a little bittersweet to have this significant era of my life  over, knowing that there will be no more babies in my future. Sweet toddler... read more

TLC

My poor blog needs a little TLC, but that isn’t really what it is getting tonight. More like a hastily thrown up blog post, so I can show off our pictures from vacation that I should have posted a month ago, but whatever.   Myrtle Beach 2013 from Mike Bowden on Vimeo.   And a funny gif Michael made for me. Just... read more

2013 – 2014 Curriculum Plan (So far)

Next year will be Haden’s second grade year! All my researching seems to be paying off because I’m feeling pretty solid about the choices I’ve narrowed down to so far, and I only have a couple things I still need to make a decision on. So, here is the list that I promised! Math We will continue doing mostly Living Math, and will be using a variety of resources throughout the year. So,... read more

Oh, the Curriculum!

And the purchasing has begun!!! Our next school year  has been on my mind for the past month or so. I’ve been making lists, researching, crossing things off, researching some more, and adding things on… I’ve got a pretty good list going, which I will probably post in the nearish future, even though it is subject to change.  Now I get to spend my night perusing all these new books! And... read more

Every Day is Earth Day

Today, on Earth Day, we (with the help of friends) helped SAVE the Earth! It was really quite impressive. We ventured out to Sweetwater Creek State Park to give a little TLC. The voices of outrage at the amount of trash in the water could be heard from afar. We really needed a boat and a net with a long pole to tackle the places that need it most. Our butterfly net was not up to the task. Bummer. We... read more

Do You Strew?

One thing I love about being a homeschooling parent is that there always seems to be a never-ending stream of homeschooling styles, concepts or ideas that you have yet to explore – and I am always on the lookout for new ideas. So, recently I stumbled across a term that is closely associated with unschooling – strewing. I was like… What. Is. That? It was kinda a DUH moment for me because... read more
