Dang I just don't see how I 'd have the time, although sometimes it would be nice to get out of the house for a while. I stay so busy now I feel like a headless chicken running around.

I don't think I posted it here, but I started Turbo Jam in late Jan. I have exercised 19 days so far, and I can definitely tell a difference, esp in my arms, they are starting to really tone up. My abs are tighter as well!

Homeschooling is going pretty well...Rach still has trouble with Math, she seems to get easily frustrated, so after we do a page I get the crayons out and we do addition that way, too. I think the visual helps her a lot.

AH, I cleaned my fridge out some today...I'll hafta wait until a Sat when Jerm is home so he can pull it out and I can pull the drawers out easier...the stove block the right door some so it makes it harder. BUT, it looks much nicer inside, I threw out a bunch of crap.


TTFN!

I have these foam craft blocks, circles, stars and hearts from Walmart that I use to help with math. They come in a plastic little tub like thing with string and a plastic needle. The kids LOVED working with them. I can't find them since we moved but I am planning on buying some more. They REALLY help with visuals and addition and subtraction and she would be able to make a craft along with learning. So.. kinda hiding the math in a craft.

Kinda like this http://www.stainedglassoriginals.com...beadbucket.jpg except none of ours are flat. They are all 3 dimensional.

Logan's school uses things like that for math too. Lots of differant colored and differant shaped items. THey say it makes math more fun and less frustrating for the kids. Plus they can use them for things like estimating and so forth. During kindy orientation night one of the teachers did a whole thing on how they use them and are having alot of sucess with them. Also for Logan to get him to learn how to count and the eventualy we used it to learn add and subtraction, we used bottle caps. He was into collecting them and had to always count them to make sure he had them or see if he got more. Made it alot more fun!
