My daughter and I have just finished listening to book 2 of 3 in the Moongobble and Me series by Bruce Coville.  It is a 3rd grade level book; however, while listening to it, I know that younger children will be able to comprehend it.  The lessons are very cool – – and worthy of additional discussion.  The three books in the series are: The Dragon of Doom, The Weeping Werewolf and The Evil Elves.  (The titles are more sinister sounding than the actual stories….so, please don’t judge these books by their titles!!!)

I hope you enjoy them as much as we are!!  HAPPY READING!!

Over at The Heart of the Matter, they are featuring their weekly Meme.  This week’s (well, actually last weeks) Meme is: Where do you homeschool?


On Tuesday’s we have started going to a homeschool group.  However, when we are home, we use the whole house – – but, we spend the majority of our time in the dining room. 
Most of the time, when we read together, we do so on the living room couch.  When we listen to online stories, we will snuggle together on my bed. 
Lifeskills, cooking and science experiments are done in the kitchen. 
Our storage consists of the buffet in the dining room, the book case my Dad made (7 foot by 7 foot) and lots of plastic containers (some on rollers). 

Here’s a peek into where we do our thing…..
