Can you listen with out judging? I am a mom of two autistic children. This is one of them posts that are not going to pretty or happy. Actually I am in tears writing this. I am at a point where I feel like I can’t open up because when I do I feel judged. Maybe those are not the intention of people, but again maybe they are.
I am frustrated, angry, and confused all at the same time. Instead of telling me what you think I am doing wrong, just listen. You really can’t understand what I am going through totally unless you live with it. You may think you understand but in sense you really don’t.
Valentine’s is one of my favorite holidays.I love seeing all the heart clip art and the mushy cards out there. It is also my anniversary. So it’s another reason I love it so much.
We are still working on addition in math. So I thought since I found this cute clip art dice that I would make some simple addition worksheets of adding 1 – 6.

Welcome to Week 3 of the Virtual Curriculum Fair. This weeks theme and topic is Exploring Our World: Social Studies and more Science. The co-hosts of this week’s curriculum fair are Susan from Homeschooling Hearts and Minds and Stacie from Super Mommy to the Rescue. The Clip Art on the Virtual Curriculum Fair button was done by Story Rock. You will notice a linky at the bottom of this post. The linky will take you to other homeschool bloggers that share what curriculum they like and what works for them. This is a great time to see different curriculum to give you an idea for future curriculum as well as a peek inside. I know I am always looking for new curriculum. If you would like to know more about the curriculum fair visit Susan’s Introduction Post so you can see what other topics have been covered and what is coming up.
If you recently seen the new Red Gold Tomatoes TV ad, then you have seen that it highlights that food brings people together. Red Gold Tomatoes is a family owned and operated business. The best part about Red Gold Tomatoes is that it only works with local family farms to grow their great tasting tomatoes to ensure that our families are getting a product that has been grown with love and care.
If you noticed the TV ad then you have seen the main dish highlighted, that would be Lasagna. Lasagna is a great family friendly dish. In fact it is one our family favorites. I don’t make it often but when I do you can bet it doesn’t last long.
Today we headed to the Weis Earth Science Museum for a spur of the moment field trip. We couldn’t make it to Neenah in time for the showing/funeral service of my husband’s uncle. My daughter had a doctor’s appointment this morning. He did make an appearance with my son to the gathering. He dropped off my daughter and I at the museum.
The museum was very interesting. It contains information about history of Wisconsin and science. It’s not very big and probably only took us 30 minutes to go through.
