If only we could bottle up the energy sources from kids, we would be millionaires!LOL

A Homeschoool Science Kit!LOL

How to bottle up those energy sources called kids and sell it to middle age adults instead of those 5 hour energy drinks they sell at the gas station and are bad for you!

I SO wish I could bottle the energy that comes from these daycare kids or even my own kids! It is what keeps me young! But there are days, like last week where I wish we could have done an energy transformation from them to me! I was pooped!
Old kids still here because parents didn't check calendars properly, new kids are here because I scheduled it according to what old kids parents originally told me AND the couple of kids that are staying were here. I had kids coming out the ying-yang!LOL Lots of energy in this house! I think it was oozing out the cracks!!

If only I could bottle it and sell it, I would make MILLIONS!!!
The best I can do, is have them near me! Their excitement and exuberance is contagious! It makes me feel like a kid again on a daily basis!

To me that is the best part of being a homeschooling parent AND a childcare provider! I have kids around me all the time!!
They keep me young!!
Happy Homeschooling!

New school year, new Math tactics....

Welcome to 2013-2014 school year...... can I cry now?
I mean, I love that we have a new school year.... I love buying supplies and laying out our lesson plans.

But then comes our old arch nemesis...MATH! UGH!

We are using Time4Learning high school level this year since both boys are in high school AND T4L added the high school levels-YIPPEEEEEE!! So, am hoping that helps with our Math issues this year! We are also doing geometry, which is a different route than trying to tackle algebra.

I am hoping that this eliminates many of our past Math issues! If not, I have some great geometry Math flashcards to use along with! I may use them anyways, just to enhance what we are learning!

If not, I fear my boys will be getting a lesson in sound energy by Mom throwing a old fashioned temper tantrum!!!LOL

So, as the 2013-2014 school year starts.... please take a few minutes to send some positive Math vibes our way for a good Math year!!LOL

Thanks and Happy Homeschooling!!
