Stuff We LikeSuzanne RezelmanComment
home|school|life's Friday roundup of the best homeschool links, reads, tools, and other fun stuff has lots of ideas and resources.

Around the Web

I’ve been enjoying the SDCC news (superheroes! movie trailers! superhero movie trailers!) on my favorite (and sometimes NSFW) movie site BirthMoviesDeath

I love Lynda Barry: When Heidi Met Carrie

Let’s face it: I was never gonna be able to afford to fly to NYC and see Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, but I will miss watching him host Ham4Ham

But (speaking of Lin-Manuel) we’re all excited for Moana, right?  Have you seen the Baby Moana trailer?

Reading List

I finally made my way through The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman and WOW, now I understand what people have been talking about all these years.  Bonus, The Omnibus editions make a very satisfying THUMP when you bring them back to the library returns counter.

Favorite very-post-apocalypse-plus-Brazil-and-matriarchy! YA of the month: The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson

Favorite dutiful-daughter-and-her-doctor-fiance-and-the-squirrel-that-might-come-between-them fiction of the month: The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie

Favorite French-Revolution-historical-fiction-that-posits-that-Robespierre-was- maybe-not-that-bad-a-guy? of the month: A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel

 

At Home 

We ain’t afraid of no (female) ghost(-busters): The whole family loved the new Ghostbusters movie!  

Haven’t made it to Star Trek Beyond yet (yes, we’re nerds), but we’re busy watching the first two reboot movies in preparation.

Our new kitten is all of FIVE POUNDS now and has already transitioned from fuzzy bitty kitten to mini-cat.

If anyone wants to meet up for a strawberry margarita or two, I think I’ll need it after dropping Eldest Kid off at his COLLEGE ORIENTATION tomorrow.  Cheers!
