New Kitten

My husband brought home a kitten that he got from a free box at a yard sale. I have only once had a kitten before when I was younger and that was only because my sister brought one home. My mom is allergic so we didn't keep it that long. My parents had dogs and so that was what I was used to having.

We decided on Curry as his name. He is very playful and is already litterbox trained. I also like the fact that he gets rid of creepy crawlies for me. Here he is snuggling with Tatiana. She loves how soft he is and he likes to play with her hair :)

UPDATE: Unfortunately, we had to find a new home for Curry because my son, Jaedan, is allergic.

Nature's Bounty

I have planted a large garden in my backyard and had the boys help with planting, weeding, and watering. My boys love helping me out in the garden. I looked out there today and two of the yellow crookneck squash were ready to harvest. We picked them and a whole bunch of Oregon Giant peas. Take a look...

Homeschooling a blind child

I am currently taking correspondence courses from Hadley School for the Blind. Since the moment my daughter became blind I have wanted to find out more about how I can help her. I have researched all over the web and found wonderful websites helping me along my path of teaching her. I am currently in the process of building a webpage about my findings...

I am trying to find resources about how to go about homeschooling a totally blind child.
I have found these links so far that are helpful...
