I have three posts waiting to be finished, but for some reason I can't seem to get motivated.
9/1/09 I knew I should have posted this right away. :\
We had to quit the art class because they changed the day it was on from Monday to Thursday and we already have some planned for Thursdays. Jasmine starts pre-ballet class tomorrow. I hope that she likes it, she really likes dancing around the house.
Our big news for Thursday is that Jasmine will be attending a one hour co-op preschool class. I'm really nervous about this because the co-op is named "Faith Co-op." It is very Christian, and we are not. I don't want to lie and say that we are Christian, but I also don't want to be preached at. I'm there to see if Jasmine will make any friends mainly, if she does that's good, but if she doesn't that's okay too.
I little later in the month we will be continuing with story time at the library and swim lessons at the community center.
I read this quote, hilarious, but I don't know where it is from, hence the lack of source:
“When my wife and I mention we are strongly considering homeschooling our children, we are without fail asked, ‘But what about socialization?’ Fortunately, we found a way our kids can receive the same socialization that government schools provide. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I will personally corner my son in the bathroom, give him a wedgie and take his lunch money. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, my wife will make sure to tease our children for not being in the ‘in’ crowd, taking special care to poke fun at any physical abnormalities. Fridays will be ‘Fad and Peer Pressure Day.’ We will all compete to see who has the coolest toys, the most expensive clothes, and the loudest, fastest, and most dangerous car. Every day, my wife and I will adhere to a routine of cursing and swearing in the hall and mentioning our weekend exploits with alcohol and immorality…. And we have asked them to report us to the authorities in the event we mention faith, religion, or try to bring up morals and values.”
What we are currently reading:
Jasmine's selection: We Love Ballet by Jane Feldman
I realized I never wrote any reviews for any of the books we are reading. I've been reading this book to Jasmine because she is starting class tomorrow. I'm not quite sure that she understands, plus she likes grabbing books away from me and flipping through the book herself.
My selection: The Silver Needle Murder by Laura Childs
I think I read this series mostly for the description of the teas and foods. Plus, there are recipes for the foods in the back!
