Her First Day

The day she has been working toward has finally arrived! Today Kyndal started cosmetology school! She started her day with mixed emotions as she realized that her days of being a "kid" are over. She will now be going to school from 9-5 from Tuesday to Saturday and then working as much as she can at The Buckle on her days off and in the evenings.

We have been spending every waking moment with her over the last several months, and now we will hardly see her except when she comes home from her long days and collapses into bed.

I am glad to see her starting her future. And, isn't she beautiful? Any salon who gets her, when she is done with school, will be so lucky! She is very talented!

Here's to an amazing year of school, Kyndal! We are VERY proud of you!!


  1. She is beautiful! Wow, that schedule makes me tired just reading it! I wish her lots of success!

  2. Congratulations Kyndal. Have a terrific school year.

  3. Praying for Kyndal's new journey! May she blessed and bless others as well!

  4. she is very pretty your right mom :) Praying her journey is easy and fun. I know she has been working towards this since I first started reading your blog years ago!

    Congrats and Good Luck Kyndal!!!


  5. How exciting for her. She is a very pretty girl and is embarking on a really fun career. All the best to her on her journey.

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
