The Other Amy, Ebooks, and Tea

Arthur blinked at the screens and felt he was missing something important. Suddenly he realized what it was. "Is there any tea on this spaceship?" he asked.

I absolutely love The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This mug has become my go-to mug when my people are being weird and I feel like I am living on a spaceship.

Something interesting that you should know

My name is pretty rare, mostly because of the spelling of our last name, which is most commonly spelled Stultz or Stoltz. I feel a kinship with anyone who spells it Stults, because we are rare. So to find someone else named Amy Stults, with the exact same spelling, is very unique. And I found her…in a very odd way. The other Amy, who lives way out in Arizona, has the almost identical email address as me too, but with one extra letter that blends in very well. Her church mailing list left out that one letter by mistake so I started receiving all sorts of emails meant for her. After many weeks of emails, I figured out that was another Amy and asked someone to contact her.

Soon, I received an email directly from her and we became fast friends. She is a Christian, part-time homeschooler, a librarian AND the scariest thing is that our middle names are also very close variations of each other!

Something I’ve made

Not too long ago, I had a day where I went crazy decorating mugs. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy mug above is one of them. I have several plain white mugs that I bought from the dollar store and they’ve been packed away, waiting for a craft day. Here is another from that book/movie. Always carry a towel when you traveling in space. You never know when you will need it.

From around the web

Books your kids will love

  • Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles – a series of books packed with loads of the grid puzzles that my son can’t get enough of. He’s already been through every workbook offered by Prufrock Press and Critical Thinking Co, so when I found these, I immediately ordered them.
  • Batman Science: The Real-World Science Behind Batman’s Gear – if you have a Batman fan in your house, you’ll love this book. Learn from my mistake and only order THIS one. You’ll see others down in the “customers also bought” section, but THIS version is a compilation of the other 4.

In our homeschool

I love history. It’s my favorite part of the homeschool day. We are studying the age of exploration right now, using lots of maps, documentaries, historical fiction, and Heritage History books. One of my favorite books that we found at the library is Before Columbus: The Americas of 1491

Programming, logic, engineering, math, and science take up the biggest portions of our day since after all, we are raising a scientist.  I just love that my son wakes up, comes downstairs, and immediately falls into the corner of the couch and proceeds to read for up to two hours in the morning.

    Well, you’re the only AMY for me! 😉 Thanks for linking with Collage Friday, and thanks for all the links to the great reading material around the web. Thankful for you.

    Love Hitchhiker’s Guide – and the teacup!

    So funny that another Amy Stults shares so much in common with you! My sister-in-law shares the same name (Heather Croft) as an inn in England so she’s constantly getting calls asking to make reservations. lol
