What kid doesn't want to grow up and play video games for a living? This list is for all kids, regardless of career goals, because it allows them to learn math, science, programming, and other computer skills in fun and engaging ways. It is especially helpful for kids who want to design, develop, program, and publish games.

100+ resources (most free) for kids who want to be game designers and programmers.

Another free adventure thanks to the Blue Star program. Military families get in free to over 2,000 museums from Memorial Day - Labor Day! We have a couple more museums to check out before the summer ends. This is the +Sam Noble Museum of Natural History in Norman, Oklahoma.

Are you planning for another year of homeschool? We are on a tight budget this year and I was only able to order a few books for this fall. I will be writing a post about how we are homeschooling mostly for free this year. But in the meantime, here are some budget-friendly resources for learning and record keeping.

Evernote is a free app that I use to plan and track our weeks: http://bit.ly/1CShpSb

Pearltrees is handy for visual bookmarking learning sites. You can create a group of sites for each subject or each child! http://bit.ly/1LxnXs0

You could make a physical notebook to use as a fancy homeschool portfolio: http://bit.ly/1OzSq7p

How many of you have gotten this question: “How on EARTH do you do it? How does your marriage/family survive with all of that (moving, separation, etc.)”?

Now, how many of you reply to this query with the answer, “I don’t know….we just DO”?

This online course has a variety of question types (not just multiple choice) that adapt as the student masters the topics. Testing and grading are all automated. And it bridges the gap between elementary and upper level math.

The video lessons are energetic, informative, and brief. Kids don't have to sit through an hour lecture, but if they miss a concept they can go back and do a lesson again and again.

"Access to a world of infinite information has changed how we communicate, process information, and think. Decentralized systems have proven to be more productive and agile than rigid, top-down ones. Innovation, creativity, and independent thinking are increasingly crucial to the global economy.

And yet the dominant model of public education is still fundamentally rooted in the industrial revolution that spawned it, when workplaces valued punctuality, regularity, attention, and silence above all else."

A great infographic from +Navy Federal about keeping your information private online. #Military  families are especially at risk because we travel so often and government paperwork has our information all over it.

What kid doesn't want to grow up and play video games for a living? This list is for all kids, regardless of career goals, because it allows them to learn math, science, programming, and other computer skills in fun and engaging ways. It is especially helpful for kids who want to design, develop, program, and publish games.

100+ resources (most free) for kids who want to be game designers and programmers.

I'm prepping for the holidays and first up are some batches of healthy, frugal chicken broth. But why would I use a whole onion or celery stalk when I have all those veggie scraps in my freezer?

Research.
#1: “children who have positive offline relationships with their parents are more likely to navigate the web in a sensible way,”
#2: “supportive and enabling parenting has a more positive impact than restricting or monitoring internet use,”
#3: “teenagers left to self-regulate their internet and social media use are more likely to teach themselves new skills online and maintain positive online relationships,”

Last week's reading. One of the main focuses in our home is reading. Jay and I lead by example and set aside a little time to read each day. We read together as a family, and we set aside large chunks of time for individual reading. Our kids are all head-over-heels in love with books. We don't have any required reading nor do we put restrictions or rules on reading level. We do help the kids choose age-appropriate books and content and we preview anything we are not sure about. 

Our 4yo isn't reading yet, but his appetite for books is whet by visually interesting picture books, graphic novels, comics, listening to audio books, and being a part of family reading time.

We also haven't done any formal reading curriculum except with our oldest (who read at age 4 with Abeka curriculum).

When Mary Pride was asked, "how do you do it all?" - this was her answer: “The key is … laziness! The best way to teach is to not have to teach at all. Ideally, our children should learn how to learn and begin to teach themselves.”

"What if a child, like mine, has abilities that are far greater than the parent expects of them? What if they have talents that show in ages that are unexpected? What if the child is asking, repeatedly, for more and more and more, but the parent just continuously denies them the opportunities to learn and grow beyond where the parent expects them to be? Wouldn’t that be, perhaps, stifling?"

Some great thoughts from +Renee Aleshire Brown about gifted education and her review of Dumbing Down America.

Geography bee! On Monday our local homeschool group hosted a fun geography fair/bee and my kids went full force in making their presentations. We made chin chin to represent Nigeria and kimbap to celebrate South Korea. There was a great turnout and we had so much fun! Believe it or not this was our first geography shindig.

My sister, brother-in-law, and four nephews visited this past week and we took them out to the Wichita Mountains to see the sunset. I got some great pictures of Quanah Parker Lake and Little Baldy.

Homeschooling - when you absolutely need to name your paper bag puppet Gandalf, but you're four and you can't spell yet. I wrote it down for him and he copied the letters.
