Summer Haircut Inspirations

We recently cut Ryan's hair short for the summer (ignore the nasty nose and dirty face:)
Chris hates it when his hair is long and has been wanting to see what he would look like with his head shaved since I can remember. Chris was inspired by Ryan and got brave tonight. We cut his hair short like Ryan's. I think he looks very cute with his new haircut. He isn't sure if he likes the look of it but he certainly likes the feel of it!

Homeschool Family

Here is another funny video on homeschooling...

Not on the Test

Every now and then I get these funny songs or videos that reinforce my reasons for homeschooling. Chris said I should create a seperate blog called...Reasons I am homeschooling. But I think this blog is sufficient to include that info since it is ramblings of a homeschooling Mom:)

Without further ado...
