Living and Learning at it's finest...Poker Night Jr.

Socialization, counting, organizing, critical thinking, communication, sportsmanship, and then there's always learning how to clean up afterwards, and the all famous 'learning how to delegate skill' that my kids seem to have down pat. You do it. No, you do it. But mom asked you to do it. Well I took them out, so you put them away. Would that fall under logical problem solving? The important thing is the kids had some family fun time with cousins...and poker chips are way less messier to count than oreos. : )

I've been meaning to journal our home education adventure for a couple of years now. There always seems to be something more pressing, more important, than sitting down and jotting down our thoughts and experiences. Nevan is taking a journaling class this seems that having a 9 year old who is going to take the time to journal on a regular basis has put a small flame under my *&^%. ; )

Setting up the blog page itself was a learning experience for this techno challenged bookworm. I chuckle to myself when I think about how quickly the kids could have probably done it. It can sometimes be quite comically daunting to have children that know more about computers than I do. And at the same time, it brings a huge smile to know that they are adapting to the world around them in amazing ways. I can only hope we all have a fabulous adventure together....and we get a few photos along the way. : )
