I was sick most of the week, and spent minimal time online, but here are a few things I ran across and enjoyed …
- Happy Birthday Mom (by The Other Laura via the WC) … “THIS is normal” Read it moms, and feel the truth. So well said!
- A friend turned me on to Grooveshark just today, and so far I love it! It’s an online choose-your-own radio station where you put in some songs you like and it suggests others … not a new concept but I love not having to pick a playlist! Great background noise if you want some.
- Homeschool Freebie of the Day is just that, and I’m loving some of the things I’m finding! Great ebooks, .mp3s, etc for your kids … some just plain entertaining, some directly educational. I just subscribe in my feedreader and check to see if it’s something I want every few days. Most of the content is older, some of it really old, and I love seeing the vintage illustrations. The audio files are great alternative entertainment too.
- One more homeschooling thing, which PW profiled today so I’ll let her talk about it … The Story of the World books, they really are fabulous! I”m loving just picking them up and reading a chapter, and if you keep books in your bathroom?? Great addition to that pile :).
Have a great weekend! We’re hoping to do a mini stoop sale and lemonade stand if the weather holds, I’ll let you know how it goes.
