Getting Ready for Fall

I have been diligently preparing for school this fall. i have nearly 4 months prepared and ready to go. I currently have 2 binders going, but the first still needs 2 weeks inserted and is quite full. So, I may go for 4 binders as they are all laying around the house anyway. I have a sleeve for each of our 39 weeks. The first thing you see is the planner page for the week (courtesy of Homeschool Creations). Then I have any pages that are whole pages, like worksheets. At the back are all the cut out goodies. I also have a box for printed books/card sets that are too bigg to put in the sleeve. I really like having everything in one place. We have nearly all of Jayne's school supplies for the year too. How are you getting ready for school this fall?

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
