We had so much fun last night, teaching Skype to our kids. Of course, we had to learn to use that particular software ourselves first, lol. It’s no secret we met online way back in the day, Darc and I, so it only seems fitting that we teach our kids to chat online.
Besides, what could be more fun than to interrupt your kids’ while they’re watching videos?
Seriously though, it dovetails in well with teaching them typing in homeschool. This gives them an application to use the skills they’re learning, and to appreciate them. Learning typing isn’t much fun, but playing with chat programs on the computer is, so now they have a desire to work on their typing skills so they can chat faster. See? There is a method to my madness.
Sunrise 02-26-13. We’re supposed to get a snow storm beginning later today. They say we could get up to 6”. Such innocent looking clouds, portending such doom!
Heh, yeah, doom! I can’t even see out my patio window because it’s covered in snow drizzle, so I had to open up the front door to get this one. It’s really coming down and it’s only been snowing for about an hour.
