Did you all hear my daughter screaming last night at your houses?
You would have thought the world was coming to an end the way this girl was carring on, She even had tears in her eyes! What was all this fuss about you ask, Her computer got a virus! It was a nasty beast too but I think we got it under control and downloaded a free anti virus program Avast (I have been using that one and so far so good). I pray that keeps the virus problem away otherwize my daughter will blow a gasket.....
Do any of you use "Kids Discover" magazines? I think they look awsome! They have a Vocabulary pages & a Teacher Resource pages that look like they add alot to the learning. I know they are geared for a younger learner then Kelly but I think the pictures are so visual that the magazine will interest her. It looks like it could get a bit pricey if you buy the mag., vocab. & teacher package for one topic. I did find a bunch listed on ebay at a great price but I am tapped out this week (I just spent $21.39 on Netflix) : (
I want to mention we are watching "How the states got their shapes" from Documentary Heaven (I had looked for this video on Neflix but they didn't have it) so I was glad to see it listed. Thanks to Jennifer from Toad Haven Homeschool for suggesting the documentary site! Kelly hates watching videos on the computer, so I knew she was going to balk at the idea and she did but I played it anyway while she sat to the side on her computer (this was before the virus crash) and do you know what? She shut her computer off and came over and watched it with me, so that tells you how good it is! I am really enjoying it, there are many different reasons why some are shaped the way they are. The one draw back was my computer froze up and I had to refresh it a few times which caused me to lose Kelly. I hope to start back from where we left off from today, I'll let you know how that works out : )
Have a great day!
