Being a stay at home mom in Seattle has its ups and downs. There are days when I wonder if I made the right choice when I decided to stay at home with my children. When I have a bad day, I think about the reasons why I became a stay at home mom.
Haunted train and depot: This is a family-friendly event, but it’s recommended that only kids age 13 and over attend, as it can be kind of scary for little ones. You can get the schedule of days and times that this is open at the Northern Pacific Railway Museum by visiting them online. It’s a great deal; only $5 for admission! You’ll find all types of scary creatures on their two haunted trains – Lots of fun.
The style of teaching in public schools all lies within the fundamentals of teaching. A completely different mindset needs to be given to public school teachers.

Yes, plus items on education, violins and music in general. In fact, this interview may push me into updating the site with fresh items sitting on my desk. Not every letter gets on the site.

My kids were about his age; however was I to teach dramatic arts to kids so young they probably thought actors were tiny people who lived inside their TV sets, and huge folk who lived on a movie screen?
Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety by Judith Warner is one of my favorite books.

Indeed. In fact, last year a girl asked if I arrived at her school in my limousine. I guess they all know of J.K. Rowling. But I had to tell the class that I arrived by subway and, in fact, don’t own a car. Still, putting out the book has been a great experience – especially the interactions with schools, the music world, publishing and parents all over the world.
And then we come to Five Canyons. This are was built my Centex. This area is even younger than Palomares Hills. They range from 14 to 8 years old. So these houses are really young and of top quality. The problem is with Five Canyons that they only offer Single Family Homes. Some of the homes are in the Gold Creek, Canyon Oaks, Abbeywood, Whispering Oaks and Creekside area. Another developmental area in Five Canyon are is Wildwood and it consists mostly of town houses. Also there is a new Montessori school that is being built in the Wildwood are. Also if I haven not mentioned the Independent School that is an elementary school is of great quality. Your children will be given the best education if they go into some of these schools.
