Experience Level

Current events are discouraging, disheartening, frustrating. I’ve turned to fiction for happy endings and characters with empathy. I’ve added that one to Ellie’s future reading list. I’ve been pre-reading loads of “middle grade” fiction...Show More Summary

Knitting (What’s Missing)

Just in case it’s starting to look like I don’t actually knit anymore…

Still Obsessed

April had them make tornado jars for meteorology day.

Everything is Neat Again

I’ve only got three tabs open in my browser. I can see the top of the table in my office for the first time in months. Science camp is over. We made one last contraption in the living room before I put the rest of the stuff in its place (Physics was Friday). Take 3 […]


Wait for it… Want to try it? You’ll need: a Mini M&Ms canister – cut the lid off the body a little bit of clay or gum Alka-Seltzer tablets – break into quarters water decorations if you want them (washi tape, stickers, Sharpie markers, foil for a shiny nose cone) Decorate your canister (I didn’t […]

Science Camp

My friend April and I are hosting a science camp at the end of June (through our local education enrichment coalition). I’m researching my half (chemistry and electricity) and trying to make the experiments and concepts flow. Because you know how I like it when things match. I feel like a segue from a discussion […]

Full Day

2 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

School may be out but this is another entirely too busy week. Today: Story time at the library! The Children’s Librarian is out of town and asked if Ellie and I would host while she was gone. Ellie read the last book and planned a craft for the kids. It was also our last girl […]

Oak Meadow Grade 2 (the handy stuff)

Emily’s Hot Tips for Oak Meadow Grade 2 Go ahead and get both a big wall map and a globe. They are equally important to an understanding of geography. If you don’t like to be outside or if nature makes you feel creepy, Oak Meadow Grade 2 is not for you. An enormous chunk of […]

Welcome to Summer Vacation

2 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

Oak Meadow Grade 2 is a wrap. We had 172 school days and nine billion happy memories. The first event of summer? Brownie Hiking Badge! She made GORP, researched hiking gear (visit to the Bass Pro camping and hiking section), practiced her observation skills (counted bugs), picked a route, and kept track on the map. […]

Second to Last

It’s the second to last day of Grade 2. For fun, Ellie took the front wheel off a very, very old bike. And built a tent. It’s pretty much summer already. [ | | | | ]

There’s a bird nest in the fern on the front porch. We’ll be using the side door for a while. Other signs of spring:

Nesting Instinct

Last year, a bird built her nest inside my bike helmet. This year I’ve been storing my (new) bike helmet upside down in my basket. She started a nest under my helmet instead. I can’t win. Happy Earth Day!

Bespoke Kitty

3 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

For art and crafts this week, Ellie wanted to sew something with the machine. Really she wanted to sew a dress for herself, but I convinced her that was a big project and we should wait for summer when there was more time. We made this instead. She embroidered the face and pinned everything up […]

Admitting Defeat

Sometimes it’s OK to admit defeat and let things go. You win today, kitties. At least until you get up for lunch.
