Stuff We Likeamy sharony2 Comments
home|school|life's Friday roundup of the best homeschool links, reads, tools, and other fun stuff has lots of ideas and resources.

It’s a big weekend at Casa Sharony! We’re celebrating my son’s 9th birthday with the Pigeon pool games, a lot of Super Mario Maker, his favorite chocolate cake, and (I’m hoping!) lots of cuddles.

around the web

A Breaking Bad writer is not the first writer I’d think of for a new Anne of Green Gables miniseries, but I’ll obviously be watching this when it comes to Netflix.

This cracked me up. (Get it together, Joan of Arc’s parents!)

Secret libraries!

on the podcast: While you’re reading this, Suzanne and I will be discussing how to handle it when your homeschooler just plain resists doing the work.

in the classroom: The first day of classes is coming soon! Register now.

on instagram: We might need a bigger art room.

at home

homeschooling: Our homeschool group picked back up this week, and I’m kind of bummed that it doesn’t seem like a good fit for my daughter anymore. Finding a group is so hard, and going back to the drawing board for high school is really stressing me out.

watching: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine because people keep telling me it’s the most philosophically interesting Star Trek

knitting: My Elijah is adorable, but I somehow picked up the stitches for the left leg in the wrong place and had to rip that whole leg out and start over. If you pay attention to where you’re picking up stitches instead of getting distracted by Hathaway’s backstory on Inspector Lewis, this patten is surprisingly simple.
