How to Keep Track of Books

I have a gazillion books in our house. Fiction, non-fiction, reference, homeschooling, just-for-fun. I go to used book sales on a regular basis and I'm always adding to the collection.

Sometimes it would be really helpful to me to see a list of these books to plan lessons. Or to see if I already own that book before I buy it used off a used homeschooling group.

I did what many wise homeschooling moms do to solve this problem: Assigned it to techno-dad.

Time Machines

My four year old, Thing Two, has decided to build a time machine. I'm not really sure where this obsession originated. But we have had a lot of fun with the idea.

Here is his latest iteration. He is somewhat disappointed that it *still* doesn't work.

We watched the 1960 version of the movie The Time Machine, a retelling of H.G. Wells classic story. Of course now, he wants to build a machine *just* like that one.
