Morgaine is convinced

We just took Olivia Counts out of the library for Morgaine.

Olivia Counts

She is, however, totally convinced that the book is called "Rudy, the Cow". So much so that she cried, with real tears, when I told her that the book was actually called Olivia Counts. So, here forth, the book will be called Rudy the Cow Counts! Sorry, Olivia!

Homeschool Music Lessons

Rock bank, of course!!


So Mike and I play Rockband quite a bit. It's probably what we do together most often as a family. Mike plays drums, I play the guitar, Liam sings and Morgaine is our little dancer. So a few times this week I've caught Liam drumming out beats on the drum set. For fun, I thought I'd see how well he'd do really playing the game.

His results:

72 % on Eye of a Tiger


45% on Hungry Like a Wolf

He never failed out once. That's my boy!!

(and yes, they'll likely take "real" music lessons at some point!)

Homeschooling Signature

I just wanted to share this picture of my two cute kiddies.


It was made for me by another Mama on a site I've been visiting for years. I'm not allowed to use it unless it is for signatures on their message boards so I am just showing it off here because, well, I'm not officially "using it" and most of you will not get a chance to see it there.

I've also decided that I am going to keep the kids homeschooling stuff on this blog. I've spent a little time over at homeschoolblogger.com but I was unhappy with how many sites have very little (if anything) to do with homeschooling so I might as well keep their stuff on typepad.
