Slowing Down...

So it looks like I haven't done much in the last couple of weeks. That's not really true.
I have produced SOME art. Not a daily dose as I should though. I have no excuse except to say I have a slight Artistic block- maybe it is the lack of vegetables ;)
No, indeed the last couple of weeks I have been focusing on getting my internet time sorted. I am on a trial where I really do not touch the computer while schooling the kids. It does make for better time, but I am not sure if it is the fact that we are not in Rebel's bedroom (where my computer is) being distracted by all the toys, or if they just like me reading or knitting better!

Rebel turned 9, and we had a day off for him to play with his new toys. Then last week he was sick with a cold- which meant that I gave him another day off. Sort of- it was more like unschooling :)

Last weekend we attended the Fall Fiber Festival at James Madison's Montpelier Virginia. This was MY birthday treat, and a lot of my creative energies are going towards the knitting and felting side of things. If I just has a few more hours each day I could do both! Instead I have to pick and choose :(

One up side, is that now the kids have seen sheepdogs in action, I can tell them that M'Lady is the sheep and Rebel is the dog (or vice versa) and get them to do things!!

In the meantime, I'll be trying to sneak my internet time back in during the afternoons to compensate :)


  1. I know what you mean about internet time. My problem is that 90% of Katelin's curriculum is free and on the internet, so I end up doing other things, which is just a matter of self discipline on my part.

    You are inspiring me however, maybe we can hold each other accountable? :0)

    At any rate, it's nice to see you posting again! I've missed you!


  2. Maybe you could draw an artistic block. :o)

    We've been in a slow cycle here. I've decided to take it in stride. There is enough real life history and conversation happening that I'm pretty sure their minds aren't going to waste.

    Peace and Laughter!
