Blogging is cheaper than therapy.

I guess, anyway! 
So I have been searching for a job related to literacy or as a Reading Specialist. I have been here at home two years and I love spending time with my son and homeschooling him, but there is a part of me that wants to find a position doing something I love. I have thought to myself, "what do I like to do best?" And the answer that always comes to my mind is "help others." I know that sounds like a broad stroke with a paintbrush, but specifically, I like to watch and help others learn.
So we shall see. If I am to spend another year at home, then I totally embrace that. I always try to be optimistic about life in general. :)

I saw a really beautiful Spring paper plate project on Facebook. 

Isn't it so pretty?!?

This is a cool way to re-use bottle water bottles...make a fairy house! Directions are found here.

Look at these bubble hydrangeas! Mix paint with bubble solution (or dishsoap and water) and give your child a straw to blow bubbles to the top of the solution. Lay a piece of white paper (preferably cardstock) to imprint the bubbles on. Cut out and add construction paper to your art!
I did try this with my classroom of students. Each had a small bowl and their own straw. We used copy paper and I believe water color paint. The effect was not so great. I would use acrylic paint instead!

So many cool Spring projects!
