Keeping Track of Library Books – No More Fines

P1120339

Everyone knows that homeschoolers love the library. And sometimes they share their record-breaking library overdue fines. Whenever this happens, there are some who mention that they have stopped using the library because they have spent more money on fines than would have to buy books. While I am a huge advocate of having a large home library, I […]

Tired?

Despite the fact that I get a lot done, I do not consider myself a high energy person. So I wasn’t really concerned with how tired I have been. At least not at first. I homeschool 5 children, work part-time from home, do the housekeeping, cooking, laundry, etc. It’s a lot of work. Being tired […]

Christmas Preparations

I am so happy to report that I have finished all the Christmas shopping! And yes, I know that is nothing special for December 19th (some people are finished in July, but I am NOT one of those people.) I also mailed out the last of the Christmas cards this morning (to be delivered locally). […]

Putting on the Spirit

I have a confession. I have trouble being consistent with studying the Bible. I want to. I plan to. But all too often, I let things get in the way. Like sleep. Or the computer. Or chores. Honestly, the thing that worked the best and the longest was being in a weekly Bible study with […]

How to Make Catalog Christmas Trees

I love making decorations for Christmas. But it’s hard to spend extra money on craft supplies at Christmas with an already stretched budget. (Really, I SHOULD think about Christmas crafting all year long, but I never do.) But if your house is anything like ours, you probably receive tons of catalogs this time of year. […]
