sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things


DD#2 is almost finished with the [tag]lesson plans[/tag] I wrote last summer. We’ve had a rocky few months with general life. I am very, very thankful that when life was calmer, I pushed a bit harder on school. We had several years in a row when we schooled over 200 days, and that has really helped during this year of general craziness. She is playing catch-up in those subjects she’s found boring, of course, but it will soon be time to write new plans for her.

I caught her this morning working in HTML on the other computer. *tap, tap* I know just enough of that to be dangerous, and I am not quite sure where she’s learned it from. She was altering a blog template. Now I can hack code, but I cannot write it, and I’d like to help her gain more knowledge in that area since she enjoys it.

I’m looking at [tag]Dream.In.Code[/tag] as a possible place for her to start. In addition to code snippets for specific functions and processes in several languages, there are forums which offer programming help and extensive information on web development. There are also programming tutorials.

I called her over to see what I had written and she got excited, so I guess that means I’ll be including some computer tech skills when I write her lesson plans again.
