Wow! Time has gotten away from me. We have been so busy this fall that I have neglected getting some posts up on this blog. Thought I would pop in and do a quick update. I probably won’t be very regular on here since we are 2 weeks away from Christmas, and expecting baby #7… Read More It’s Already December!

Homeschool Mom Addiction

I think I have a problem… I have already started thinking about what curriculum I will use next year with my kids. We are only 10 weeks into MFW CtG, and we are enjoying it so much. I don’t know what is wrong with me! Every year, I say I am not going to use… Read More Homeschool Mom Addiction

Using a White Board to Direct Our Day

My memory is not as good as it once was. I used to be great at accomplishing things without having to write them down. But since having 6 kids and being busy with them all day, I can’t seem to remember to do anything unless I make a note to remind myself. For a while… Read More Using a White Board to Direct Our Day

At the end of September we got together with our homeschool group and took a trip down to the river.

We are finishing up week 4 tomorrow so I thought I better do a review before I get too far ahead.   The first day of school was chaotic… in a good way. No one was… Read More 4 Week Review of My Fathers World CTG

Last night we celebrated the beginning of the Sabbath with a special dinner. The curriculum we are using this year is having us celebrate biblical feasts through out the year. We had so much fun!!!

First Day of Homeschool!

We launched into our new year yesterday! The day didn’t go as well as I hoped it would, but I stopped to pray out loud as soon as things started to get crazy and that seemed to help settle everyone down. I also had to remind myself often that character training is more important than… Read More First Day of Homeschool!
