When This Passing World Is Done

by Robert M. McCheyne When this passing world is done, When has sunk yon glaring sun, When we stand with Christ in glory, Looking o’er life’s finished story, Then, Lord, shall I fully know— Not till then—how much I owe. When I stand before the throne, Dressed in beauty not my own, When I see […]

What I’m reading

I never did a post last week for my 52 books in 52 weeks project. I did finish a book: Death of a Valentine by M.C. Beaton. It’s really not worthy of a review. It was the latest in the Hamish MacBeth mystery series and the mystery was ok. The rest of the story was […]

All About Reading – Beehive Reader

This fall, I received All About Spelling to review. When I wrote the review, I had only used the program with my 4th grade daughter. Since that time, I have been using All About Spelling with my 2nd grade son-the one that may be dyslexic – the one that did so poorly on his yearly […]

Ray’s Arithmetic

I may have mentioned it a time or two, but I really like math. I don’t particularly remember liking math until Algebra I, but it has been one of my favorite subjects ever since. I had a terrific Algebra teacher who taught in a way that I could understand. That foundational understanding served me well […]

Decluttering

Sometimes I just can’t take clutter and I’ve got to do something about it, whether I really have time or not. That’s how my day has gone. I wanted to take a picture of some interesting looking animal tracks in the snow before they were gone. And why? Well, because I’m a homeschool mom and […]

52 Books in 52 Weeks – Week 6

Last night I finished reading Sense and Sensibility, Insight Series #2. I love Jane Austen’s books and this one is no exception. The insight version of the book added a lot. There are notes throughout the book that include relevant information about  places in England and customs of the time. There is also information about […]
