*** Before You Know It Dot Com ***

is a free language teaching program that is a lite version of the full application but still has most of the features, does not expire you can keep it forever and it works with both PC and Mac systems.

I downloaded the French version today and the kids and me were having great fun with it. I am going to get some other languages too this afternoon for Angelica who is really taken with this software already.

I thought maybe you might like to take a look too :)

Too Cool For School [Jul. 2nd, 2006|11:33 am]
Free Range Moms - The Surreal Side Of Parenting

The Times Article we took part in is online as well - HERE *** TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL ***

most of our part was cut out because the Times are now doing an in-depth piece on our using recycled materials for the garden and house which have cost next to nothing and in most cases nothing at all.

The piece ends with a nice paragraph about us and words from me which is nice.

I've set up a journal called homeschoollinks for people to post websites and online resources useful for homeschooling. Check it out, and please feel free to jump in! I have a huge linklist saved up, and I'm posting them as I get the chance.

Intro ~ Byn [May. 19th, 2006|08:18 am]
Free Range Moms - The Surreal Side Of Parenting

msbyn

My name is Byn, I'm 34 (soon to be 35 ~ and not handling the "old" thing well at all!!!:(

I have five kids, ages 5-14:  Abyni(5), Paris(8), Jaedin(9), Kainan(10), Sprite(14)

We are Christian homeschoolers ~ we have HSed from the beginning ~ we use an eclectic mix of curriculum.  I tend to veer towards classical methods to an extent (LOOOOVE the literature based learning) and a lot of hands on unit studies (ala Konos).

We love doing theater.  Last year our family was in a local production of The Wizard of Oz and had a BLAST!  It was our first foray... and we plan to do more.

I did all homebirths, one unassisted.  I adore my hubby (Patrick) and we have a great marriage... I love that my kids have that, since I certainly never had any kind of happy family life growing up!  

Interested in making new friends...

While poking around online for Mother's Day thoughts I ran across some information about the origins of Mother's Day and thought I'd share.  Intrigued?Collapse )

Something to do... [May. 5th, 2006|07:21 am]
Free Range Moms - The Surreal Side Of Parenting

There isn't much going on here lately , so I thought I would just post a random "get to know you post" . You don't have to answer all these questions. I am just throwing them out to give some ideas All I ask is that no ones answers turn into a debate about what is right or wrong. Please respect everyones choices and lives.:-)


Tell us about yourself. What are your interests and hobbies? How old are you? How many children do you have and how old? Do you public school, private school, homeschool or some combination? What would you like to change in you current life and what do you love about your current life? If money and time were not issues, and nothing in the world could interfere what would you be doing right now....what is your dream? Do you volunteer for anything, if so what is it and do your children also volunteer?

Hmmm...thats all I can think of. I will post this and then go answer my own questions...
