WOW wow wow!! So I never intended to drop off the face of my blog, you know life..it happens. SO what’s new, yeesh, were to begin!!
We still unschool, found a wonderful group of homeschoolers that are so supportive and laid back. We try to do as much organic as we can but with economy it’s very hard especially since Hubby he does tile. We foster when we can, which brings up a new thing… our oldest bunny passes away a few months back 😦 Very heart broken, Punkyroo walked around with her stuffed bunny pretened it was Mr.B..we’ll always miss him.
Some for sure new thing are… I’ve become a licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor in November and recently just got licensed to teach Zumbatomic (for kids ages 4-12) and Zumba Toning. I absolutely love it, and it’s wonderful in allowing me to work anytime and have Punkyroo with me. Punkyroo asbolutely loves me teahing Zumba, she loves practicing my routines with me and always showing off to family or friends her moves. hehe, too cute.
Also started making tutus, bows but mostly sculpted hair bows and recycled pop tab bracelets (which my friend and partner makes the bracelets). I helped her make a tutu like one I made for Punkyroo a long time ago and she suggested to make and sell them. So at a homeschool craft sale day I made and brought a couple and they all sold, I was so excited. So my friend and I brought our noggins in and decided to try and try and start selling these. She’s an amazing knitter and croucher so she makes the bracelets and tutus with meand I do tutus and bows 🙂 It’s nice since doing a big order we’ll get together and our girls will play. It is pretty awesome when that friend is also a vegan homechooler with a kid close in the same age! Seriously how awesome right?! and the odds, crazy!
So on the Unschooling front Punkyroo is doing awesome! She’s reading now and it’s so amazing to watch the process. 5 years old now and she’s reading and all on her own desire. We worked with letters and sounds and always read to her. Then one day it was “mommy I want to read to you too, I do a page and you do the other, we’ll take turns” and it’s been great. It was like that with adding too. Money was a wee bit harder for her but is a toughie remembering 1 item represents more than 1. We will def stay on our unschooling road. Granted there’s days when with almost anyone not in a school setting wonders if it’s enough or good enough etc but usually that passes when I see how happy and how much she’s developing by passion and curiousity.
So I’m hoping to dust off this baby and get back to it!
