Because of multiple food allergies, we don’t usually trick or treat around the neighborhood (well, that, and there are no other kids in our neighborhood currently…that kind of puts a kink in the plan! 😉 ). We usually throw an allergen-free Halloween party for the kids on Halloween, but we do take the kids out trick or treating at an area zoo. This year, instead of going to the Columbus Zoo, we went to the Cincinnati Zoo to meet up with my sister, her fiance, and my nephew.
Family Update & Field Trip–trick or treating at the zoo! October 17, 2010
Welcome to our blog! February 28, 2010
Thank you for dropping by our blog! This blog is primarily going to be about our adventures in homeschooling Montessori-style. But, I also plan on blogging about cooking (we are egg, dairy, gluten, nut, artificial color & flavors, trans fat, and refined sugar free!), the earth (we love teaching our kids to enjoy nature and to care for it), and the fun field trips we go on with the kids.
We have three kids. The oldest is 6 years old and has asperger’s syndrome (a form of autism). He attends a Montessori school and is in kindergarten. He loves doing Martial Arts (he is working towards an orange belt in mixed martial arts and is just starting out as a white belt in Tang Soo Do). He’s a huge Star Wars fan, so for this blog, he’ll be known as Jedi.
Our middle child is 3 years old. She was adopted from Vietnam in 2007. She is our first one to be homeschooled, and she’ll be working at a preschool level (starting her first year in the 3 year Montessori Children’s House sequence). She’s also an aspiring gymnast and is obsessed with it! She’s been taking lessons since she was 11 months old. For this blog, she’ll be known as Monkey.
Our youngest is 13 months old. She’s a smiley curious little one, and is already running and climbing (and loves to trying to keep up with her older siblings). In this blog, she’ll be known as Bitty Bug (LOL…probably just Bug as she gets older. 😀 ). She’ll be doing some toddler-based Montessori activities as well.
