Eric spent some time reading a book about birds. The other book we were going to study was too boring, so we played catch instead.

Cassie had a home economics lesson on Saturday night as I made “fish and chips” for dinner – battered cod and homemade French  fries. She learned about stove safety and why the handles of pots need to be turned in towards the stove. We discussed hot oil and why it splatters when you add something that has water on it (the potatoes splattered). She heard our reminiscing of cooking classes with Miss Cho in Junior High and the story about before meeting Les how I already knew all about him because he used to have cooking class before me and was part of a team of mischief makers that would rig our “kitchen” for all kinds of trouble. Little did he know he was rigging his future wife’s kitchen…..She also learned about why French fries are called French fries. Eric provided the book with those details. I love that the kids can find anything in a book from our personal library. And remember where they read it!

For home educators, students and researchers: I have put one of the most comprehensive link lists for hundreds of thousands of statistical sources and indicators (economics, demographics, health etc.) on my blog: Statistics Reference List. And what I find most fascinating is how data can be visualised nowadays with the graphical computing power of modern PCs, as in many of the dozens of examples in these Data Visualisation References. If you miss anything that I might be able to find for you or if you yourself want to share a resource, please leave a comment.

Accountability

We have decided to start this journal to keep track of our children's life lessons learned in our homeschool journey. We believe that as parents we are accountable for our own children's education. It is up to us to make sure we prepare them to be active and responsible citizens, not a drain on society. So this blog will be a place where we can share our daily lessons and activities that we incorporate into our homeschool.
