Three weeks ago, when I came across this book in my favorite store in Dallas, Whole Earth Provision, I immediately decided to buy it. And, of course, my 9 year old, Lego Master of the Universe, has not put it down since. Click here to see it on Amazon. And how exciting to see that there […]
I said to my husband the other night ‘I’m always looking for that perfect formula of beauty and function” (whether it’s the daily schedule or how to arrange the furniture in a room.) He reminded me, “For the schedule, you will never find it, because life is always changing.” Oh. Right. Remembering that IS key, […]
This devotional (for homeschoolers) that I read this morning was very encouraging when thinking about starting a new school year in the next few weeks. I have highlighted in RED what we must sow, and I highlighted in BLUE what we will reap, if we sow these things.
I can not believe my oldest is ready for Algebra. This is Saxon Algebra 1/2. The class before highschool Algebra 1. We love Saxon for Emma. Here is a link to a post I did that goes a little more in depth on Saxon Math and why we like it.
Hey there Mamas. Wanna talk math? Oh, well. Let’s do it anyway : ) This will just take a minute. Consistency? Hmmm. Not really. As I have mentioned before, I have tried many, many different curriculum over the last 9 years. And the only thing I have remained consistent on is the last 3 years […]
We have been homeschooling for about 9 years. What that means is when our first daughter (now 12) was 3, I was researching and buying curriculum. Now today, I would just tell a mama that had a 3 year old to relax, have fun and read about other homeschoolers in your spare time. Don’t get […]
I suppose since I have a 6 year old son, I am slightly tuned into the Lego world. Lego construction is most definitely his favorite activity. He is still only marginally interested in reading, but I know something deep down is going on, some kind of brain-synapse-thing, with these legos. That is why I put […]
On this wall, we have some nice white boards (dry erase markers always in a safe with a Ft. Knox lock) Just kidding! And on the left, that is a genealogy for Jesus. I love charts and timelines. Homeschoolers LOVE to see how and where other homeschoolers do school. We want details. EXACTLY where do […]
I Never Liked History In School It consisted of memorizing meaningless dates and reading boring textbooks. “Who cared,” I thought. Nor do I remember a history teacher that brought it to life. (Thank goodness I married a college history major)
I am going to do an experiment. It is with one of my children. Scary? Oh, not really. After, I guess I would say, 8 years of homeschooling, I have now seen (and read many, many testimonials) that whether you do formal, regimented school at home or not, the children are going to learn. Period. […]
Mom: Henry, it’s time to put your clothes away. Remember, shirts in the top drawer, pants in the middle drawer and pj’s in the bottom drawer. Great. You’re doing a good job. Keep it up! Mom walks out of the room. Henry: Hey, what’s this? Henry: A toy. Cool. Henry: I must play with this […]

People filing out of the keynote speech into the vendor area. I just got back from one of my two favorite yearly weekends away. The Annual Homeschool Conference. It is always the first weekend in May. All day Friday and Saturday at the downtown Cox Convention Center Arena. We spend the night in a downtown […]
