Movie Night with Jigsaw

Last week James, Skyler, and I had a Movie Night with Jigsaw. Why was this movie special enough to require me posting about it? I have been working with Skyler to get her to start doing chores around the house and for her to do her homework. Mykie from Glam and Gore had posted her Billy the Puppet SFX makeup video and I knew then what I had to do. It didn’t hurt that she had the code for us to also get a free ticket from Atom Tickets. I do…

Early Morning Risers – Help is on The Way

With the exception of James, my family is not early morning risers. Unless Rhyan decides that she, in fact, does want to wake up early. That means that EVERYONE wakes up early. This is something that I have been battling since Rhyan could get out of her own bed. It isn’t an everyday thing, but it happens too often. Most morning, I prefer to wake up and get at least half a cup of coffee before I hear any other voice around me. This morning was a battle. Rhyan chose…

Upgrading Our Six Flags Over Texas Passes

Over the weekend we headed out to Six Flags Over Texas. When checking our passes Saturday morning, I noticed that the month of September we had the option of bringing a friend for free, on both Skyler’s and my passes. This meant that we could bring James and Rhyan without it costing us anything more.  We had one Deluxe Dining Pass and a sports bottle so we would only need a little extra for food for all of us. This was a test run to see if Rhyan could ride…

Welcome Back to School | No Home Schooling

Its back to school for Miss Skyler. So, I have to say, WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL SKYLER! We have talked about us home schooling Skyler over the summer, but Skyler has been promoted to the 6th grade and chose to return to her school. I am a little sad that she would prefer that now, but as we are not ready to start full-time travel, you know its okay for now. Meeting the Teachers at the Welcome Back to School meetings I just got back from meeting all three of…

Work For Hire Chore List Allowance

Megan does not pay an allowance to the girls, but over the last few weeks we have noticed that the oldest, Skyler, has not wanted to complete any chores around the house. After finding out that the credit card that Megan uses has a “Family Account” option that sends a credit card in the family members name, and you transfer money to that card so that it isn’t connected to the main account. Megan created a Chore List Allowance worksheet called “Work For Hire.” Skyler will have to earn her…

Educating Skyler

As we prepare for the next school year as we wait for test results from the STARR exam for our Owlet Skyler, we fear the worst. That Skyler will need to repeat the 5th grade. See Skyler has a learning disability that the school seems to think is no longer there. I see it, my friends see it, and even James, a man who entered I lives half a year ago sees it.
