Why Zoom Times? The first reason is that the more kids I have, the faster the time goes and since I just had my 6th baby, we are really zooming along! The second reason is that this is a blog primarily about our homeschooling adventures which is , in turn, primarily about my crazy kids.
Usually kids ask parents the big question: where did I come from? My kids didn't ask me, they told me where they came from. They come from the planet Zoom. Never heard of it? It's in the galaxy of Oom along with a number of other inhabited planets with names like Boom, Doom, Foom...you get the idea. When they arrived on our planet, the oxygen in the atmosphere caused them to develop legs. Although they were each hundreds of years old when they arrived, the legs took some getting used to, so they were raised by swamp monsters, then mermaids, and then they came to us. This explains a great deal to me and, as you peek in through this window of our lives, I am sure it will explain a lot for you too!
So, why blog? I mean it's great having a house full of crazy home schoolers, but don't I have enough to do? I am hoping that this will be read by other home schoolers with a sense of fun and we can share great ideas for fun ways to learn. I am also hoping that the pressure to come up with something fun to blog about will keep me on my toes!
