How Well Do You Know Him?

I saw this and thought it would be fun to do in honor of Father's Day. The first few questions were easy, but the further I went the more I am thinking I might not know him as well as I think I do. I don't know, what do you think, Rick?

He's sitting in front of the t.v., what is he watching? 

He is watching some kind of sporting event and is flipping back and forth between it and two movies that he has already seen, one probably being a cartoon movie.

You are out to eat, what kind of dressing does he get on his salad?

Definitely Ranch.

Name a food he hates.

Hmmmm .... I honestly can't think of one food item that he hates.

You go out to eat and have a drink, what would he order?

After he jokes about having Crown with a lime (inside joke), he will probably order a Stella Artois or a Corona.

Favorite kind of music?

He likes all kinds of music, especially 80's movie tunes. He knows every word to every song in Grease 2 if that tells you anything.

What is his nickname for you?

No nickname, but he does call me 'babe' pretty often.

If he could collect one thing, what would it be?

Rick is NOT a collector! If I had to choose something I guess it would be golf hats, but only until they have been sweat soaked a few too many times.

What would he eat every day if he could?

Probably sushi? Or Coneys? Again, he is not a picky eater.

What is his favorite cereal?


What would he never wear?

I can't say never because he has a few times, but no flip flops if at all possible. He wants his feet covered!

What is his favorite sports team?

Oklahoma State Cowboys. Go Pokes!

What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn't do?

Although having an independent wife has its advantages, I know that he wishes I was more dependent on him. Also, my inability to brainstorm drives him crazy, and he hates when I interrupt him before he has finished what he was going to say.

You bake him a cake for his birthday, what kind is it?

No cake, actually. Maybe just some fresh, ripe cantaloupe or some ice cream.

Favorite sport?


What could he spend all day doing?

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…
