Mental Health Day

Tomorrow I’m taking a mental health day. We’ve been doing fairly well at getting school done every day. But I just need some time off. I still feel like I’ve been rushing around to do things, but accomplishing nothing. First thing on tomorrow’s agenda…renew my driver’s license. Exciting huh? The good news is my husband […]

The Week at Home

Yes, I’ve been complaining about how busy I have been. I am happy to report that Cross Country is finished! As a result, I have stayed home completely 2 days this week! What a blessing it has been. I feel almost back to normal, whatever that might be for a 30-week pregnant, almost 40 year […]

Bringing Up Bobby – Movie Review

I was recently offered the opportunity to review new Christian films. Not being one who likes to turn down review opportunities, I agreed. Then I started to wonder if I was the best person to ask. You see the problem is I haven’t seen many “Christian” films that I like. I have found that most […]

My Little One is 4

The day has come and gone. It was the most anticipated event in our household for months (at least by one certain person.) Our youngest celebrated her 4th birthday.

At the same time, the topic of hospitality keeps coming up. I was the chat hostess for Molly’s talk on hospitality at The Schoolhouse Expo. I’m also […]

Trusting in the Shepherd

My younger children both get completely absorbed in what they watch on television. That is a good thing when I need time to work uninterrupted with my older children. I know they’re paying attention, because they will repeat things that they’ve heard on videos that they watch. So I try to be especially careful in […]

The 2 Week Summary

This wrap-up will have to cover 2 weeks or more. I’m not sure how long it’s been since I’ve posted. Our core subjects are moving along well for both of my older children. My son is not particularly fond of all the practice in Analytical Grammar, but we’ve only got 3 more weeks to go. […]

Harmony Fine Arts art and Music Appreciation

I have a little confession. I know next to nothing about studying art and music. Pathetically little. I’d like to remedy that, and it’s something I hope my children never say. Charlotte Mason suggests very simple ways for adding in picture study and classical music to your days. They are simple, but to someone with […]
