Ancient Egypt, Dance Class...etc...

As many of you know, Brian and I decided to homeschool both of our girls. We started Lydia in February and I just started with Arminda. It's going pretty well. Right now, we are studying Ancient Egypt. Which, I have always found very fascinating and Lydia does too! Arminda isn't quite the history nut that Lydia is, but I think I can get her to come around! I'm considering making a mummy with the girls. I found some "recipes" online. We'll see about that though!

And, Lydia's lifelong dream has been fulfilled! She is now taking dance class!! At least for the summer. She is THRILLED!!! I am considering making her some leotards. I purchased Kwik Sew 2725 on the recommendation of a friend of mine. I really hope I get to it! I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you though!

What else... Oh, I posted a new tutorial over on my Disboutique blog, written by my friend Jeanne (like in the bottle). It's a really cute little skirt.

And, here is a great giveaway on one of my favorite sites: FreelyEducate It's for Summer Bridge Activity Books. She's giving away five. And, while you are there, look around her site, it is WONDERFUL!
