Random 5 Friday - Jan 31st 2014

Random Five Friday

1. My oldest daughter passed away when she was three. This last Wednesday she would have been 18. I can't believe it has been that long. However I am a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and my faith in Jesus Christ has made it possible for me to bear this grief.


2. We are reviewing science4us Little J is using it every day and he loves it - Review coming soon!

3. I had a crazy headache last night. I was feeling fine and then suddenly my neck and head hurt and I felt sick. I joked with my husband that it was the 'fish' he cooked for lunch (it's not my favorite, but we are trying to be healthier).

4. I can't believe tomorrow is February. The kids want to host a Valentines Party. School parties is the only thing they miss from our public school days. Even though I tell Jam he wouldn't have them anymore as he is too old. Me it seems like a lot of work...hum what to do.

5. I have never taught a child to read - all by myself as my older children were in public school until 3rd and 5th grade. I did help a lot as we read like crazy here. However my youngest Little J is five. It is intimidating but we are making HUGE improvements. This morning at breakfast he asked if he could read 'Little Men' when he learns to read. He is SO sweet.

I hope you enjoyed my Random 5 pop over to The Pebble Pond to read more Random 5 posts!

Random 5 Friday January 24 2014

Happy Friday :) I think the first week back after a vacation is the hardest. I am SO glad that it is Friday.

1. I have a new goal of going on the treadmill 3x a week. My old goal was 5x and it may seem like a backward step but with my schedule I never seemed to succeed with the 5 days - any only ended up with 3 or 4 so I figured instead of failing each week I would be more positive. 3 days - goal and I feel successful.

2. I heard about a cool website this morning and I have to share it. It's called Paper Rater  and it looks really cool. I haven't tried it yet but it looks like an excellent website. The major bonus is that it is FREE and you must know by now how much I love free. Talking about school we are making our transition back to Ambleside - Charlotte Mason based education the kids have been SO excited this week. It's funny when we started homeschooling this was the method I chose, and the kids did a lot of moaning. After taking a break, using Easy Peasy All in one Homeschool and then returning to a more Charlotte Mason style education (at the kids request lol) their attitude about it is completely different.

3. I got a new book in the mail yesterday for another Litfuse Publicity review. I am SO excited I love Amish fiction. I am already on chapter 5 - this was swept me into the story straight away. I estimate I will be finished by the end of the weekend.


4. Guess what my husband said as he left this morning. I need to buy some wood today as I am building more shelves this weekend. Surely the shelf building will end soon.

5. After spending a week with my Mom and Dad in Mexico I am having withdrawal symptoms. My husband and I loved spending time with them. They are not only my parents, but very dear friends.

Check out other Random Five's over at the The Pebble Pond. In fact if you write a blog why don't you link up.

Wordless Wednesday 1/22/14



Selfie in Mexico

I think I should move to Mexico - to learn Spanish

While I was in Mexico last week it seemed so easy to use some of the few Spanish phrases that I know. I even learnt a few new ones. However now I have been home for 6 days it has all gone. So I have decided for the sake of my Spanish education I need to return. Of course the beaches, warmth, amazing food, and the amazing time with my husband and parents have nothing (ha ha) to do with my decision. I would however have to take the kids with me this time. Jam would have loved all the information our amazing tour guide Eric told us about Tulum (he loves History of any kind). All the information about the Mayan civilization would have thrilled him. Let alone the 'unlimited food and soft drinks' they would have consumed at the resort.

However this is an unrealistic goal. So instead I will have to get out the Spanish CD's. I was also speaking to my library and they have a new online (FREE) language resource I am going to check out.

So that will have to do...for now :)

You all know by now that I love Amish fiction. The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher didn't disappoint. When I agreed to review this book I didn't realize that it was the 2nd in a series. However, it didn't stop me from enjoying it. Suzanne did a great job linking the what had happened in the first book to The Calling.

Bethany Schrock is 20 years old and has taking a job helping five ancient Amish sisters. Her role is to clean through years of junk that the sisters have collected. The job itself is full of surprises but of course the real story is Bethany's love life. Jimmy Fisher is desperate to get Bethanys attention but with all that she has been through will she be able to take the chance. With the help of the old sisters and a long term guest at the inn that the Schrock family run. Bethany learns the truth about her mother, and finally finds her 'Calling'. I was really sad when I finished it, hopefully their will be a book 3 in the series soon. Believe me with all the other characters in the book it will be a good one.

Book Sneeze Review - Willie Out West

I received this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review. I chose this book to share with my 5 year old. We read it in one sitting and he sat through it and said he liked it when we finished. Willie is a Walrus who leaves his home searching for adventure. This book talks about being the best you can be and being brave enough to stand up to others.

 
 Little J enjoyed it but he has never asked me to read it again.

Random Five Friday - 17th Jan 2014

Random Five Friday

1. I have spent the last 7 days in Mexico - kid less. It was awesome. My husband liked that I had the time to make sure he was reapplying his sunscreen for a change.

2. My kids spent a week with my sister and her family. My niece who normally homeschools by herself as she is the youngest thought it was awesome to have so many kids in the house during the week.

3. We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya the hotel was very nice. My parent's were a little shocked however because the last time they went it was not owned by Hard Rock and they were told there would not be many changes. There were a lot of changes - and not all for the better according to my Mom and Dad and a lot of other people we met during our stay. The 'Heaven' side of the hotel has been painted an AWFUL blue color, and was under major construction while we were there (luckily) we stayed on the Hacienda side which seemed a lot more suitable and less under construction. However they were working hard throughout the week we stayed and it was looking a lot better before we left. Now the food...I could do a whole post about the food. It was AMAZING.

4. We went on two awesome trips this week. Tulum, Mexico and Chichen Itza.





5. Our tour guide Eric Martinez was amazing. He has an amazing way of making the history of the Mayan people come alive. He is amazingly fluent (an excellent thing for non Spanish speakers like me). We got a huge sense of his love and enthusiasm. Eric was obviously knowledgeable, he owns his own tour company Lamanite Destination Services. If I ever get back to the Yukatan I will definitely be calling him.

Pop over to The Pebble Pond to check out some more Random 5.

Sleepover's

We don't do sleepovers except with family. Tonight we are all sleeping the my sister's house. It is such fun. Little J gets the place of honor next to me on the sofa. With Jam on the other size of my husband. We are sleeping on mattresses on the floor. Boo is in her cousins room ...they are 8 weeks apart and have been giggling for the last 2 hours.
Grandma and Grandpa are in my niece's room (she's away at college). It's fun to have so many of us under one roof...it's a shame my sister is working.

Julie Klassen’s “The Dancing Master” Review and Giveaway reminder!

About the Book-
 Finding himself the man of the family, London dancing master Alec Valcourt moves his mother and sister to remote Devonshire, hoping to start over. But he is stunned to learn the village matriarch has prohibited all dancing, for reasons buried deep in her past.
Alec finds an unlikely ally in the matriarch’s daughter. Though he’s initially wary of Julia Midwinter’s reckless flirtation, he comes to realize her bold exterior disguises a vulnerable soul–and hidden sorrows of her own.
Julia is quickly attracted to the handsome dancing master–a man her mother would never approve of–but she cannot imagine why Mr. Valcourt would leave London, or why he evades questions about his past. With Alec’s help, can Julia uncover old secrets and restore life to her somber village…and to her mother’s tattered heart?
Filled with mystery and romance, The Dancing Master brings to life the intriguing profession of those who taught essential social graces for ladies and gentlemen hoping to make a “good match” in Regency England.

About the Author-

Julie Klassen loves all things Jane–”Jane Eyre” and Jane Austen. A graduate of the University of Illinois, Julie worked in publishing for sixteen years and now writes full time. She is a three-time Christy Award winner and a 2010 Midwest Book Award winner for Genre Fiction. Julie and her husband have two sons and live in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota.
Find out more about Julie at http://www.julieklassen.com/.
My Opinion-
I loved this book. It felt like a traditional or old fashioned version on 'footloose'. When I first started to read the book and the story started that's all I could think about...this book reminds me of 'Footloose'. However as I got into the story I started to fall in love with some the characters - however, not necessarily the main ones. The story is not as simple as it seems when you start reading. There are some good twists in the story. I have never read a book written by Julie Klassen before and I was pleasantly surprised. I was intrigued because it was mentioned that she writes in the style of Jane Austen, which she pulled off quite well. As I am originally from England and a huge Jane Austin fan that's a big complement.
I didn't particularly like 'Julia' but some of the other characters were wonderful. The only thing that bothers me is, that although 'Julia' was a spoiled, conceited girl she seemed to win in the end. I know the book talks about grace and forgiveness but I didn't really see much of a change in Julia's personality and that made me sad. I felt that her friend would have made a more deserving heroine.
All in all it was a fun read, not overly religious, and a very 'clean' romance. I love reading books that I wouldn't mind my daughter reading. My 11 year old already has her eyes on this one.

$100 Visa Cash Card “Carolina Gold” Giveaway from Dorothy Love! Review and Facebook Party

Enter Today - 1/4 - 1/14!
Dorothy Love Carolina Gold

I love to read, and historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. I was recently sent a copy of Carolina Gold to read from Lifuse Publicity Books and I can tell you straight away it did not disappoint.

This was the first time I had read a book written by Dorothy Love and I really enjoyed her writing style.

About the Book

The war is over, but her struggle is just beginning.
Charlotte Fraser returns to her late father's once-flourishing rice plantation on the Waccamaw River, determined to continue growing the special kind of rice known as Carolina Gold. But Fairhaven Plantation is in ruins, the bondsmen are free, and money is scarce.

To make ends meet, Charlotte reluctantly accepts a position as tutor to the young daughters of Nicholas Betancourt, heir to the neighboring Willowood Plantation. Then Nick's quest to prove his ownership of Willowood sends Charlotte on a dangerous journey that reveals an old family mystery---and threatens all that she holds dear.
Inspired by the life of a 19th century woman rice planter, Carolina Gold continues Dorothy Love's winning tradition of weaving together mystery, romance, and rich historical detail, bringing to life the story of one young woman's struggle to restore her ruined world.

Buy it here.

My Opinion

Carolina Gold is a very pleasant read. It is full of interesting living history and based upon the life of Elizabeth Waties Allston Pringle who lived from 1845-1921. I love reading books that open up periods of time and experiences that I have never known. I was intrigued by the information about the rice plantation, about moving to the sea in the summer months to avoid the fever, and the huge epidemics that hit New Orleans and how the sick were people were treated and cared for.

To make ends meet Charlotte starts tutoring, as a homeschool mom I love the theories and methods she uses to teach her pupils. It made me think of Charlotte Mason a British educator from the turn of the twentieth century. I love the idea of living by a beach and teaching my children the amazing plant and animal life that are found there.  we can learn many lessons if we can apply her trials into our lives.

I loved that this story had a background romance. It didn't overtake the historical aspect but blended perfectly. This is a book that I will happily share with my daughter.

About the Author 

A former journalist, free-lance writer and college professor, Dorothy Love explores the intersection of history and human relationships to create novels that speak to the hearts of women everywhere. She is the author of the acclaimed Hickory Ridge novels set in her native state of Tennessee.

After earning a masters degree and Ph.D, she authored dozens of magazine articles before breaking into book publishing with a number of award-winning novels for preteens and young adults. The Hickory Ridge series marked her adult fiction debut. Currently she is working on several stand-alone historical novels set in the South.

When she isn't busy writing or researching her next book, Love enjoys hiking, traveling, and hanging out with her husband Ron and their rambunctious golden retriever. The Loves make their home in the Texas hill country.

Make sure to join in the Facebook Party January 14th 2014 at 8pm Eastern.

Poetry Sunday January 5th

The New Year is a time of evaluating. Looking back at where we have been and what we have done and looking forward to the future. I am sure if we take a look back at our lives there are things we would have done differently - hindsight is a wonderful thing. However I also know that the choices we make and the experiences we have make us who we are. Thinking about this reminded me of a poem I read at school, then again with Boo.

The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost


TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,    

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood 

And looked down one as far as I could    

To where it bent in the undergrowth;             



Then took the other, as just as fair,       

And having perhaps the better claim,      

Because it was grassy and wanted wear; 

Though as for that the passing there     

Had worn them really about the same,            



And both that morning equally lay           

In leaves no step had trodden black.       

Oh, I kept the first for another day!     

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,     

I doubted if I should ever come back.            



I shall be telling this with a sigh  

Somewhere ages and ages hence: 

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—    

I took the one less traveled by,    
And that has made all the difference.

Random 5 Friday Jan 3 2013

 Random 5 Friday Jan 3 2013

1. Christmas and New Year are over for another 300+ days. I miss how the tree looked in our living room. My husband and I mentioned yesterday how dull it looks without all of the lights and twinkle.

2. Every Christmas when the family gets together we do skits. Every family has to participate. Only my sister and her husband seem to get away with it...well mainly because they are not here every year. However my brother's oldest son was not able to make it this year and their skit was videoed before hand so he could still participate. It was awesome and we all decided that my Sister and her husband can participate now (even if they are on the other side of the country. I am hoping to get a copy of my brother's to share. It was a Monty Python skit Ministry of Funny Walks - You can see the original skit below.

There's was adapted a little of course so that all of their family could participate. They even managed to include their baby.

3. My husband probably won the award for scariest costume. We acted out the Grinch, and my husband got the staring role. He did an excellent job.


4. New Year's Eve can and the weather was beautiful. We decided to take my parents out to one of our favorite walks in the local State park. However when we got there it was closed and so we tried a new walk. It was just as pretty, just not as high up on the cliffs over looking the lake.


5. We have been doing Easy Peasy All in one homeschool however the kids have asked to go back to our Charlotte Mason Amblesideonline program we used last year. I was worried that they were doing TOO much however they said that they don't feel they are learning as much. Funny how a change to do less work was not as popular :) Makes me happy, so I told them I need a week(ish) to get their HomeschoolSkedtrack updated. I am excited, but it means that I have more to organize.

What changes are you making this year. How often do you mix up curriculum?

The Schoolhouse Review Crew is starting up again...and that always gives us exciting new experiences.
