I Think We May Have Started A Fire.... For Homeschooling

I hate to even say it, But WOW! What a difference so far in our schooling. This starting in the afternoon is doing wonders for both of us. When my husband got home last night he asked her some questions about the Civil War and she answered each question correctly! Yea! It made my heart sing.... I have struggled so much with worry that she isn't getting anything out of what I am teaching her and now I am seeing just maybe a little time change may make this work out so much better for all of us.

Last night my son had to work late and Kelly's friend wasn't on the computer so my husband and Kelly decided to start a fire outside and we sat around it. It was very relaxing starring into the fire and we had a little chill in the air which made it even nicer.

For Halloween this year since we don't get any trick or treaters and Kelly doesn't plan on going out - I am thinking we will make these cute ice cream cones: they are just the cutest and look so easy too. Then get some marshmallows and start another fire and sit around telling ghost stories roasting marshmallows....
