McNulty, Vegas and Homeschool

I've been lacking on new posts for a few different reasons.

1. After hearing a lot of positive reviews, Steve and I started watching "The Wire" on DVD's from the library. It is really intense and having the whole season at once we often find ourselves watching back to back episodes. It is cool because it has lead us to some interesting social justice discussions. There are five seasons and we are halfway through season 3.

2. A while ago I happened upon a blog written about a Mom in Las Vegas with triplets and a singleton. She has written a post everyday since 2006 about her family. She is so funny and real and she is a super internet researcher which I can relate. I just recently started reading her archives and was riveted about her son being diagnosed with a brain tumor two years ago. Steve is sick of me starting a conversation this way, "Well the lady in Vegas with triplets says....."

3. I'm also researching some preschool homeschool programs. As of now, I think we still try and start Eden in a preschool program next fall but there is no reason to start a little program now. Some of the curriculum I've read have a 2-3 hour per day activity.  First, what would I do with Anna during that time especially since she is only napping for 45 minutes (that is another post to come) and I can't imagine Eden focusing on something for that long of a time.

So in our few hours kid free, this is how I spend my time lately.....

  1. Emily,
    I'd love to know what preschool curriculums you've researched and what you thought. Do you have my e-mail? I am currently making up my own, but am always sidetracked by big things like Christmas and now tax season. ~Kasia~
