The Great Golden Guernsey Getaway

This is Astrid. She has opinions.

There was a time two years ago when I utilized every ounce of my creative ability to make a pink flamingo pinata for Dos’ birthday. It took a week. It was fabulously awful and I decided I will never, ever again feel badly about not making a pinata but that the flamingo pinata will be the photo I show that child whenever she tells me in the future that I don’t love her.

Now I have a whole new “proof I love you” adventure, but this time it’s with Uno.

She fell in love with a dairy goat. Despite us telling her (repeatedly and explicitly) that dairy goats need to be milked twice a day, she persisted. She began to look up recipes for goat soap and lotion, talk to friends who might want goats milk, examine photos of goat udders on the internet (which Bubby calls “milkers” or “butters”), and research, research, research.

I can’t help but admire her dedication and determination.

She earned the money needed to both purchase and care for said dairy goat. She selected her breed. She continued her assault.

And, Lord help us, we caved.

This is why if you were traveling on I15 this past weekend and happened to see a strange lady and daughter in a rental car milking a goat on the side of the road… you know it was us.

In the middle of all of this the kid got as sick as I’ve ever seen her. I still don’t know what was wrong with her – but something caused a fever, congestion, coughing, and general ick. We have been a generally healthy crew, so this was a big bummer, especially on the road trip of her life!

Friends, we milked the goat in the parking lot of the FourSquare Church in Battle Mountain, NV. We fed the baby in the same parking lot and we offered our hallelujahs up for safe travels and these silly little things.

Bottle feeding in the church parking lot.

I can also tell you with authority the goats like country music. (They sang along with George Strait.)

Now we are home and working milking a goat into our regular schedule of life. Frankie is the milking doe and Astrid is the baby who will grow. We have plans to get a buckling soon… and that, my friends, is the beginning of our Golden Guernsey Goat dynasty!

Look at all that milky goodness!
I admit it. I love baby goat noses. Even if this particular one is a little grubby, they’re my favorite ever.
It’s 7 a.m. and the goats are calling. So, I don my work boots, sweat pants, and pj top over the top of my nightgown to go get it done. You’ll notice I’m not showing a photo of my hair.

The Chore Philosophy

I am a sucker for the internet chore charts. For years I have collected them, saved them, and admired them from afar. Now, the actual implementation of a chore chart has been pretty much non-existent. The result has been a house that does not bring yours truly peace or joy. In fact, it tends to make me frazzled and grumpy.

 

Earlier in December Lizard and I took a car trip alone and had a chance to talk about our goals for the year. We have been horribly lacking in goal setting for quite some time! My goal this year is cleanliness. I have a tendency to feel overwhelmed and unloved when I don’t see other people helping keep our house up or when there’s a huge pile of laundry on our sofa. And honestly, I am not physically capable of even attempting to try to do it all myself anymore. There is unnecessary discord in our house over this topic, especially now that our kids have all gotten old enough to be part of the solution instead of the problem.

 

I’m not sure exactly how I missed the boat on creating an “all hands on deck” work ethic in our home prior to this but I suspect a LOT of it had to do with me having a… ahem… very particular way I believe things should be done.

 

 

I have also struggled because I didn’t know if we should tie the chores in to an allowance system. For the time being we’ve laid that monkey to rest. I saw this meme on facebook and it settled my mind:

 

 

The internet is a magical place.

 

So, as a method of survival and turning over a new leaf (one where I’m not quite so much of a control and emphasize done over perfect), this afternoon I introduced the new chore chart. Along one side of the chart I have every day of the month. On the top I placed the chores that will be done on a daily basis: dishes, laundry, front bathroom, back bathroom, feeding & watering, sweeping, breakfast, lunch, set table. On the grid in between we have the names of the four kids in rotation.

 

To be honest, I look at this grid and can only see a multiplication table and my 7th grade math teacher who wore copious amount of blue eye shadow. It doesn’t fill me with joy. However, the implementation of this system might very well have a significant impact on my mental health.

 

It turns out people have actually studied the impact of chores for kids. “Research from a well-known 75-year Harvard study examined the childhood psychosocial variables and biological processes that predicted health and well-being later in life. Researchers concluded that kids who had chores fared better later in life. Chores were the best predictor of which kids were more likely to become happy, healthy, independent adults.”

 

I’m sold on the benefits of doing chores and ready to implement this in our house. I also really like to have kitchy little phrases for getting things done. Here are some we’ve already used and others that will start making the rounds in our home:

 

Benefit / Phrase

Buy in that personal actions have impact / “When everybody helps, everybody wins.”

I am convinced that when the kids start having to do their own laundry they will become more choosy about how they take care of their clothing. There are few things more infuriating than seeing clean, freshly folded clothing in a heap on the bedroom floor. I may or may not have blown my top over that one a time or two.

 

Developing responsibility and sense of accomplishment. /”Many hands make light work.”

When I don’t let my kids help around the house I am implicitly communicating a lack of trust in their abilities. This is absolutely counter to what I want to intentionally develop in them. Managing my control issues will have a direct impact on developing future, capable leaders.

 

Teaching life skills /  “A stitch in time saves nine.”

For example, by having the kids cook meals and clean up after themselves they will start seeing the way you can save time and effort later. They will get practical experience for working smarter, not harder.

 

Developing teamwork / “See the Need, Take the Lead.”

One of our parenting goals is to develop an awareness in our children of the world around them. We want to be a family who looks around for opportunities to serve others. This is important in our home as well as our community. And if we don’t actively train our eyes to see we will end up being cluelessly selfish.

 

Build a Strong Work Ethic / “Half Done is Not Done At All.”

As I’ve been typing this post a child who shall remain nameless has been working on the back bathroom. They did clean the countertop and scrub the toilet… but they neglected to clean up the dirty clothes on the bathroom floor by putting them in the hamper. Nope. Not gonna fly. A job only partially completed is still not done. Our hope is that by instilling a desire and satisfaction in completion, we will see more jobs finished and have fewer struggles with lack of follow through.

 

I’d love to hear from you – do you implement chores in your house? What system do you use? What tasks? Do you have any catchy phrases for us to add to our repertoire?!

Always Learning

I have a goal of being a life long learner. There are studies about how important it is to pick up new knowledge, how it helps the elasticity of our brains, how it can postpone the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia… learning is a big deal at any age! Considering the fact that the majority of Americans haven’t picked up a book to read in the last year I feel like we need to actively combat our idea that education stops when we graduate from school (whether it’s a home education environment or a traditional brick and mortar school building).

 

What have you learned in the last year? If you can’t answer that, consider why. Is it because you haven’t really noticed? Because you really haven’t learned anything? Because nothing has inspired you to seek out information?

 

When I first posed this question to myself, I couldn’t think of what I’ve learned this year. I started to go back through the photos of this past year and realized I actually have a decent list.

 

Some things I’ve learned this year:

  • New crochet stitches
  • How to dry felt in 3D
  • How to clean my microwave effectively
  • How to speak at conferences and engage and educate the audience
  • The way tendons work in a dog’s hind leg
  • History around the Boston, MA area and how it related to the American Revolution
  • What happens to your fingernail when you smash it in a door and it falls off
  • There is a garlic capital of America in California and it smells really good there
  • How to create a shelter for and feed goats for a 4H market project
  • How to hatch quail eggs in an incubator
  • How to sew a Jacquelyn Kennedy costume
  • What baby chicks need to survive
  • That traveling circuses are actually pretty cool
  • How to grow cucumbers, zucchini, and okra in our garden
  • That Bubby is allergic to mosquito bites
  • You can see the curvature of the Earth at Bonneville Salt Flats
  • Artists with access to drugs and black lights can create some very creative items
  • How to design and decorate for a vacation rental
  • That birch tree bark comes off in flat layers
  • Lobster meat can be squeezed out of their legs and it looks like a pimple popping
  • Driving schools are really not exciting to take to clear your name of a ticket
  • Crocheted Christmas pickles look pornographic
  • Instant pot brownie bites can look like little turds on a plate
  • Lyra is a beautiful form of athleticism
  • Slime is close to glitter as a form of the devil’s handiwork

 

 

See – that whole list was created just from looking at the photos on my phone in the last year and thinking with an open mind! I bet you have the same type of list and I’d love to hear it!

 

What are you doing to continue life long learning this year?

The Next Stitch

I’ve picked up a new habit this year: crochet.

 

(You should know that I’m wearing hand-me-down pajamas from my 93-year-old great aunt as I type the word crochet. I feel this is significant because prior to acquiring this new habit I believed that crochet was for little old ladies preparing their goods for the Christmas bazaar.)

 

I can’t quite say why I picked up crochet except that it met some of my criteria for crafting consideration: A) It has a useful purpose when complete, B) It has great potential for creative expression, C) It has NOTHING TO DO WITH GLITTER. I chose this Mixed Stripey Blanket because the colors made me happy and the stitches change frequently enough I don’t get bored. I also chose to pick up a crafty because a few months ago I discovered my blood pressure numbers were on scales typically reserved for pressure cookers and the air tool used to tighten tires to vehicles. Getting a hobby that offered bi-lateral stimulation was suggested as a way to enact lifestyle changes. (I also gave up coffee and soda. I haven’t recovered from that choice yet.)

 

Every morning I wake up with the birds and sneak out into the living room to play with yarn. I have begun to crave the rhythm of the stitches, the way the yarn slides through my fingers, the quiet of our house before the rest of my family wakes up.

 

Lately, though, I’ve been trying to understand the complexity of the stitches. I only recently realized that each crochet stitch is actually a knot! I have been to a nautical museum and admired sailors knots and known I have no skill to make those. I have looked at barbed-wired artistry and considered the making of it well beyond my pay grade. I have groaned out loud to undo knots in pant waistbands, soccer cleats, and necklaces. Knots have not been my favorite. At all.

 

But as I have crocheted along I am recognizing that the way I grab string, twist it, and place it has been able to create a crazy, beautiful diversity. I’m starting to see the joy in knots… and the way each stitch is used to create a larger tapestry of a the story of the blanket.

 

This morning, as I stitched along, I asked myself if this whole crochet business had a way to be related to anything larger than a blanket. If it might, perchance, be an illustration for gleaning a life lesson. And I realized the answer is YES.

 

I have the ability, with my attitude, to choose the color of the day just like I can choose the color of my blanket. I have the ability, with my daily actions, to work to create a knot/memory that is within the pattern of principles I’ve adopted for my personal values. I am not required to continue with the exact same stitches forever – but I do need to recognize the importance of the stitches that came prior because they give me something to build upon, they taught me how to move forward, and the very mechanics of the stitch (how tightly I hold the yarn, what size of crochet hook I use, etc.) have created something that is individual and precious.

 

Hand crafted.

 

My life is hand crafted, just like this crochet blanket. There are no short cuts. The flaws make it more valuable and are proof it’s not machine made.

You know what else I realized this morning? Look into the background of this photo – do you see the random strings of ends that haven’t been dealt with? The slop of the yarn as it waits to be twisted? It’s a hot mess back there and sometimes I look at it and groan. But you know what else? It can and will be dealt with in the proper time. Right now the only thing I can manage this moment is the next stitch.

 

No more. No less. Just the next stitch. That’s what’s on my plate right now and that’s all I have to accomplish.

 

As we start this new year, I hope that you are building a life with a beautiful tapestry and that as you place the next stitch you are at peace. You’re creating a hand crafted masterpiece.

Favorite Board Games for the Elementary Ages (and even younger)

I have a confession to make. I love board games and games in general. I love the simplicity of gathering together as family and playing games, no technology needed. The stories are given freedom to be told, creating a family history, the character is given opportunity to develop (win gracefully and lose graciously? hm???). Because I have this obsession with board games, we have {gulp} two full cabinets of games in our not-so-large house. I’d call it a hoarding problem, but since they are games we use, I’m not going there!

 

However, over the years I have also encountered some flops on the board game selection process. In an effort to steer you away from the ones my kids have loathed, here is my list of our family’s Favorite Board Games (we currently have kids aged 11, 10, 7, and 4… so this is the list that has worked well for us so far!):

 

This post contains Amazon affiliate links. This means if you purchase any of these recommendations from Amazon by linking through this blog post, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thank you for your support!

 

  1. Apples to Apples: Big Picture. This is the game our kids begged to take on our holiday travels this year. We’ve been successfully playing it for three years now, which means our age range is from 2 years+. You do need to have a reading child to read the adjective on the card, but the playing pieces are just funny photos that you try to match to the adjective. It’s hilarious and the photos are really funny as well. I was thrilled to find something even our youngest could enjoy!
  2. Tenzi. I know this sounds extremely boring: get all 10 die onto the same number before anyone else. “How boring is that?” you ask. Well, if that’s all you do, I suppose it would get old quickly (although it takes more concentration than you’d assume to get TEN of those little six-sided fiendish playing pieces to agree). However, we start experimenting: “Get five 5’s and five 1’s,” “All even numbers,” “Only 3s and 4s,” etc. This is a game we play with friends and since it’s so portable I even have a purse-sized version for using when we are in restaurants waiting.
  3. Suspend. This is another winner for a wide age group of kids. The wire pieces must be suspended and not collapse as new pieces are added. (We also use this game for review for Classical Conversations. We assign each subject to a color of rod and the kids successfully answer a review question in that subject before placing the rod.)
  4. Trucky 3. This puzzle is more popular with our son and his friends than with  the girls, but it always comes out when friends come over. In fact, I may or may not have threatened his life when he left pieces in the walkway. Legos they are not… but MAN do they have sharp edges when your unsuspecting foot hits them!
  5. Reversi. When I was a kid, we had this game and it was called Othello. My sister and I played and played and played. I’ve discovered Reversi is just the same and just as enjoyable… but a little cheaper than Othello to buy. (Cheapskates, unite!)
  6. Monopoly. This classic is a classic for a reason. In addition to helping them with math and money, the strategy is wonderful for development. Uno recently saw the new version with bankcards and begged to get it. I don’t know if we’ll go there – I love simplicity and bankcards don’t have the same simplicity in my mind.
  7. Candyland. I personally HATE this game. It’s as much fun as watching paint dry. But my kids, they just can’t get over the amount of drool they produce while playing, so I guess it must be on the list.
  8. Uno Attack. Uno is Uno and it’s wonderful. Uno Attack – adds the element of surprise to the whole adventure of card playing. I’ve gotten to actually prefer Uno Attack to regular Uno, just because I like the giggles we get when someone is attacked.
  9. Bean Boozled. I don’t think this actually qualifies as a board game, and honestly your family may only play it once or twice. BUT this guessing game of good/nasty jelly bean flavors has a lot to love about it – especially the memories you’ll make while playing.
  10. 5 Second Rule. This is a newer game for us, where they give you a topic and ask you to name three things related to the topic before the five-second timer goes off. We’ve been enjoying it, however! I think it makes the cut!

 

I’d love to know your recommendations for games! Please share in the comments!

8 Gifts that Keep on Giving – Top Picks for 2017

All over social media I see people asking what gifts they should give their kids this year. The options are overwhelming! I thought it might be nice to share some of the things our kids use regularly, day in and day out, that could be beneficial to your family as well!

 

 

This post contains Amazon affiliate links. This means if you purchase any of these recommendations from Amazon by linking through this blog post, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thank you for your support!

 

Monopoly. What can I say, this is a tried and true, classic board game that gives hours of fun (and sometimes tears of frustration). We’ve played this game for several years, our box has now seen better days, and it’s still the go-to game for a quiet afternoon.

 

Slack Line. Our family members gave this to us over the summer and it has been amazing! You string the line between two solid trees and the overhead line helps keep the kids from killing themselves while playing. It’s quite a challenge and tons of fun – and we haven’t had one injury on it to date. WINNING!

 

Osmo. This game requires an iPad to use, but is a fantastic take on interacting with technology while learning. Our kids love the coding game, and pizza game also really builds on math skills. For those of you who are Classical Conversations folks, the drawing game can be helpful in making your map tracing come to life… lots to love with this one! Shhh… don’t tell… but the Hot Wheels game is on our Wishlist for this year!

 

Heating pad animals. Who knew this would be the thing they’d fall in love with?! I saw these last year at Bed, Bath and Beyond on clearance and purchased them on a whim. Today, they are showing signs of wear from constant use and their lovies. At night before bed we heat them up, then send them to sleep with their warm friends. I think there may be something to the weight of the animal on their chest while they sleep… regardless, this was a hit for them!

 

Magnatiles. Will they end up all over the place? Yes they will. Will they destroy your feet if you step on them like.. ahem… Legos? NO THEY WILL NOT. Magnatiles are attractive and without boundaries for building. And they don’t sneak up on you with tiny sharp edges in the middle of the night. Good times.

 

Bristle Blocks. I’m back to the classics because, well, it’s a classic! I remember building with Bristle Blocks as a child and my kids have used and used and used these. I’d recommend not mixing them with Play Dough. But outside of that, it’s great fun!

 

FriXion Erasable Pens. I suspect you’re going to call out my nerdiness on this one, but these pens are AMAZING. We use them for our schoolwork and for doodling. The really, truly erase! The colors are great, the writing experience is smooth and they’re just awesome. You do have to order them from Japan to get the multicolored pack, but they are really, really good pens. I’d suggest springing for the 24 pack right away because if you’re like me you’ll be unsatisfied with the smaller pack and end up getting the larger pack eventually anyway.

 

BluTrack Starter Set Toy Racetrack. I was skeptical about this to start with but it came to heavily recommended in one of the fb groups I follow that I decided to try it out. What a neat toy! It takes practically no extra space and it used with the toy cars that already inhabit my son’s pants pockets regularly. We roadtripped with this and it was an amazing toy for the campsite while we were cooking… for all of the ages. The bending track makes for tons of fun.

 

Hopefully this will give you some ideas of gifts that have an actual, we use this, recommendation. I’d love to hear about the things you have found to be amazing – maybe your treasure will be our next winner!

Kindness Elves for Christmas (and two other family traditions)

It’s that time of the year when we start thinking of traditions for the holidays. Our family celebrates Christmas, and we do our best to minimize the “ME, ME, ME” aspect of Christmas that can be so prevalent with children. Here are a few ways we’ve tried to simplify Christmas, make December manageable, and create a special Christmas Legacy with our children during this time of the year.

This post will contain Amazon affiliate links. This means if you purchase any of these recommendations f Amazon by linking through this blog post, I will receive a small commission. Thank you for your support!

 

Jesse Tree. Several years ago a childhood friend sent me a box of Christmas tree ornaments and a book. She told me this was the Jesse Tree, a special celebration of Christmas her family enjoyed. In a nutshell, the Christian redemption story is told in 24 segments beginning December 1 with the Genesis story of creation, and ending with the birth of Jesus Christ. Each event is represented by an ornament and every day you read the corresponding text from the Bible and hang the ornament on the Jesse tree. It’s a really sweet tradition that puts the Christ in Christmas!

Since that time we have changed a little bit about how we celebrate. We purchased a spiral candle that we light as we read each day of the story, and use the felt ornaments pictured to go along with Ann Voskamp’s Unwrapping the Greatest Gift, A Family Celebration of Christmas. We just purchased this book, which includes ornaments and a 3D tree, to use this year – I’m really excited to use it!

 

The Christmas Express. Some of my favorite holiday memories as a child included viewing Christmas lights! Twinkle lights make everything seem so magical! A few years ago I ran across the idea of a Minivan Express on the blog Confessions of a Homeschooler. We edited the idea a little (we don’t drive a minivan!) and have thoroughly enjoyed this tradition!

One evening in December, without any warning at at, we send our kids to get ready for bed. When they arrive there they find a new pair of pajamas and a golden ticket for the Christmas Express. We gather in the kitchen, take a photo with our tickets for posterity, hand out a travel mug of hot chocolate and popcorn with M&M’s, and tour the town looking at Christmas Light displays while listening to Pentatonix or Straight No Chaser holiday albums. It’s amazing. They love the surprise of it all, and we love the opportunity to do something that’s practically free and fun for all involved.

 

Kindness Elves. This will be a new tradition for our family this year. I’ve never really gotten on board with the Elf on the Shelf idea for a few reasons: I’m not that creative, I don’t see why I want an imaginary elf making mischief I don’t want my kids to emulate, and there are too many ideas on Pinterest which scares me a lot! Ha!

However, this year I’ve stumbled across a wonderful idea from The Imagination Tree that sounds pretty phenomenal. It’s a Kindness Elf – where the elf still can be hidden but suggests practical ways to be kind to one another during this season that can often feel full of hectic selfishness. I love it! We purchased these Elf ornaments, inspired by traditional Swedish Tomte Santas, and I will be using these Kindness Elf Idea Cards to make our December more “others”-focussed. I can’t wait!

 

These are a few of the things that we do in December to set it apart as special. We’d love to hear more about your traditions!

Jim Davis / Garfield Preschool Art Project

This coming year in Cycle 3 of Classical Conversations we will be studying influential American artists. One artist is Jim Davis, who created Garfield! We decided to experiment with an art project… Caught in the Cookie Jar. It’s actually a combination of a few different art projects, but so far it’s been approved by our 4, 7, 9, and 11 year olds.

 

First you start with the black and white of Garfield.

(Here’s a pdf file to print at home)

Davis_Garfield

Color

 

Fold carefully! In theory you should be able to fold in half and then line it up on the line marked on the side, but each printer is different so just make sure that the lines match up around the lips/nose area.

Viola! You have a sneak Garfield Caught in the Cookie Jar, inspired by Jim Davis!

Too Many Tabs


My computer has been having a break down. It starts exhibiting the rainbow wheel of death and then huffing and puffing at me with its fan and generally giving me the idea that I have royally ticked it off in some mystical manner.

 

I approached my resident computer expert, Lizard. Explained the situation. He happily walked over to my computer. Took a look. Reeled back from the computer as though it were a snake about to strike, and said, in a voice laden with accusation and incredulity, “Just how many tabs do you actually need open at one time?!”

 

I don’t have an answer for that because in this arena, need is a relative term. What I can say is that Pinterest was made for me when I believed it was a simple way to just keep track of interesting items or research topics. But now the super-cool folks have taken it over and when I visit Pinterest it’s always an attempt to learn how to do something in a way that’s way more creative than I can manage on my own or as a mental tool to confirm how woefully lacking I am as a mother/human being. Pinterest and I are really not friends.

 

So my next plan of attack is to right-click open all things. It works wonderfully! See a link you want to explore more later? Right click open a new tab. Researching for that road trip? Create a tab for each leg of the journey with a new tab. The possibilities are endless!

 

Then I began to notice a slight slowing of the loading speed of my web pages and thought, “Self, perhaps having 30+ tabs open in one browser window is confusing. You can’t really see the headings of the pages. This makes it difficult to navigate. Perhaps this is the reason the pages are loading slowly. Let us create a browser window for each topic of inquiry of the world wide webs.” And thus it was accomplished and for a time all things continued with purpose and speed.

 

Which leads me to my current issue. After Lizard acted so shocked, I decided to take stock of my computer habits. I currently have six browser windows up on my computer, and they have no less than five tabs open each (some… um…. significantly more…). It appears I’m going to have to channel my avenues of inquiry or face the disgruntled noises of my computer forever. Sigh.

 

How do you manage your computer tabs? Any hints for me?
