Manager of my HomeSchool

I was once given some great advice regarding keeping both my home-making and my homeschool organized. It was the first time I met Marty, the head of my former homeschool group, and she was the speaker of the evening. I got to know her more personally much later, but when I heard her speak that night she […]

Mrs. Robinson

Last night I began to mop the floors and was quickly reminded that my lungs can’t handle such a large task. I used to mop all the time and now the kids do it. Yesterday I forgot that I can’t do those things and I began, and quickly realized I am still sick. You see, […]

comparing myself to others, and pics for the G-parents

One of my favorite television shows is the one which follows the Duggar family’s life. If you aren’t familiar with this family, they are Christian, they homeschool, they have church in their home sometimes, and they have 19 kids, to date. They felt early on, after a miscarriage due to the use of birth control, that […]

when you’re tired and want to quit

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday bloggers. Hope you are having a good week! Today is a very important CT scan for me. Hope it all goes well, say a prayer for me! Now, on to homeschooling…Some of my favorite homeschooling books are in the series entitled Charlotte Mason Education, Catherine Levison. My books are so […]

Education is Life

A long time ago, parents spent a lot of time with their kids. Many times, in the case of most of the American Indians and early American settlers, the kids were with mom and dad everyday until 16, or younger, when they were fully matured and went off to start families of their own. The […]

Another suit in the dark

In  a news article my mother in law gave me, columnist Steve Rose writes a very ignorant, prejudiced, and judgemental view of homeschooling titled Home-school education excels in its parallel universe. This man, who appears to be about 70 in his picture begins the article announcing that in the state of Kansas (I live in Kansas […]

what I hope to teach them…

Went to the doctor yesterday and he is did some tests and is sending me for a CT scan, so I don’t know much more than I did yesterday, although I do feel a sense of relief. I don’t know why. I just feel some peace today. I wonder if it’s God giving me a […]

It’s that time of year agian!!!

As I’ve mentioned before, we are really excited to begin a year of My Father’s World: Exploring Countries and Cultures pretty soon here. I have been looking forward to this for years and had planned on putting it off for one more year, but I am not putting things off any longer. So last night […]

This is the day…

My younger two will get to crawl through an ear that they make under the table. My oldest did it years ago in kindergarten and he has never forgotten the really neat activity. I wish I could claim credit for this, but the idea is in KONOS volume 1. We make ours under the kitchen table […]
