So far…

Exploring Countries and Cultures, by My Father’s World has been good so far. Good, I know it’s a generic word, but we have been doing this long enough to give it an honest review. And overall it’s good, bordering on pretty good. What I really love about this program is all that I am learning. […]

Unschooling Seasons

Last night as my son struggled to do his math work, specifically answer questions about seasons & months, I asked Husband to help him so I could finish washing the dishes. It shocked Husband that Big Bird didn’t know which months were in which season. I guess it would shock most folks who went to an institutional […]

Unschooling

As I’ve made it known a dozen times before, we use My Father’s World, a little of Sonlight’s language arts and Heart of Dakota read-alouds. We use them, they don’t use us. E with all of this curriculum, we are unschoolers overall. Just what does unschooling even mean anyway? Ask a hundred people and you’ll get a hundred different […]

First Day Everywhere

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything on facebook. Too busy. But this morning it’s taking me longer than usual to get moving so I decided to browse and see what all my fb friends are up to. It seems that school has started in several states along the east coast and all the […]

Units of Studies

Curriculum is fun. I am a bit of a unit study junky as I collect them when I see a catalog and fall in love. The thing is, I don’t have time to do all, or even half of them. We are ankle-deep into My Father’s World Exploring Countries and Cultures. I have tried everything, Heart of […]

Curriculum

As we gear up for the new year, my living room, office, and bedroom have been taken over by homeschooling books, magazines and curriculum. In previous posts I have gone over what we use and why, also what we don’t like and our reasons for that as well. So today I want to express my […]

Three Things…

A couple of things going on, some more important than others. But because I have not written about homeschooling, the Lord’s life. or health in a while, here it is… In about three weeks we begin My Father’s World ECC! I have been waiting to use this program for 4 years now, which was when I […]

Keeping occupied through it

I think I need to cut back on the coffee. This morning my kid tells me I drink a quart each morning. No way, I maybe drink a pint. He says, no; a pint is 16 oz. So I look for myself and by golly I do drink a quart of coffee in the morning. […]

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 […]

a whole new list

My children are at home with me everyday. We have various activities, lessons, experiments, books, and chores to do each of those days. Every so often I like to write down what our goals are so the days don’t blend into one another and we stay on some language arts, spelling, or math curriculum writer’s path […]
