And it was, truly. Which is why this looks much the same as it did last night.
Katie and I drove all over metro Atlanta, testing out the new wheels in the process. A medical appointment, a trip to the bank, the post office, our mail drop, a craft store, a school supply place, a couple of book stores, Phoenix & Dragon, and something I know that I’m forgetting.
You wouldn’t believe how much “homeschooling” gets done on the road. Had the dealer had a van in stock with a DVD player installed, I could easily have justified it for purely educational purposes. As it is, I’m glad my laptop has a DVD player, as we find various BBC and PBS series pretty good supplementary materials at times.
No AV materials today, though — just books, paper, calculator, and a lot of discussion. Science, algebra, world history, critical thinking, English, vocabulary, current eventsâ€¦
Oh! We got our Latin texts! Katie and I have decided to start studying Latin together this summer. I’ve always regretted not having had a chance to study it, and it can only help her. So here we go!
The girl got some knitting done in the car while we talked, too. As she gets more confidence in driving, I look forward to getting some stitching done while she drives. On the other hand, she’d get fewer lessons done. Hmmm.
I need to study to try to keep a little bit ahead of her. We’re going to have another blog where she, Sam and I post about our learning adventures. It isn’t quite up yet, unfortunately.
Did HTML ever seem this intimidating?
The array of themes available for WordPress is absolutely overwhelming, but I am a stubborn cuss. I want MY OWN theme. Of course, creating one is not trivial, because I haven’t actually learned CSS or XHTML yet. I’ve done just fine with my rusty HTML skills, since I haven’t been able to work outside the home or done any heavy web work in years.
Oh well — I have a reason to learn now!
Please be patient
The dawning of a new age!
Okay, just the beginning of a serious redesign. Yes, TechnoMom.com has finally joined the blog brigade. I was changing hosts and decided to make bigger changes at the same time. Most of the old content will be back before long, but right now youâ€™ll find things a bit sparse.
If youâ€™re new â€™round here, welcome. Itâ€™s a very informal place. Check out my profile. Iâ€™ll be posting about all manner of things, and will enjoy hearing from you.
