Homeschool Wrap Up....not really

If you've noticed we have really slacked the last few weeks with homeschooling. Not that I haven't tried, because I have. I've kept up with the letters and numbers, but I just didn't do anything worth a picture or anything new.
Mei Mei has had a three week winter holiday for Chinese New Year. We have just ended week two.
But, here are some pictures of a birthday party and some interesting food...
Mei Mei turned 6!
 We had a few friends over for a painting party. All kinds of painting went on from watercolor to finger painting.  Below shows the artwork from a young lady, some paint, and a marble.  The girls had so much fun rocking a cookie sheet causing the marble to roll back and forth through the paint colors.  
 As for food. Here is something that I found that was pretty cool.  A pineapple cake in the shape of Taiwan. It even has the mountain range, which is very detailed. For those of you living in Taipei, you can find them at the Famous Bakery on Roosevelt Rd. next to the Fuji Film store.  
Note that this is turned on its side so the mountain range can be viewed.
The point on the left should be down (south). 
 And on a funny note, we had fajitas with blue rice.  This can't be found in any restaurant (that I know of). This we did in our own kitchen.  How do you do it? Add food coloring...I think we'll try red next time. It might look a bit more appetizing than the blue did.  But, the kids thought it was great.

It's nice to connect with other homeschooling moms who are writers, too!

Looks like a fun birthday!

Jenny and Sharon - Thanks...it was a fun party. I was exhausted afterwards, but so much fun!

Wordwranglernc...thanks for stopping by. I'll have to come and visit you later tonight when it is a bit more quiet here at the apartment and I can enjoy...

Ah! What a great mom you are! I've homeschooled for MANY MANY years. It has its benefits.

Thanks Margo. I only homeschool one of my three. There are those days...but then there are great days. That can be in anything, so I'm loving the great days and trying to find joy in the not so great days. HA!

Thanks for stopping by!
