1937, SNOW WHITE & THE SEVEN DWARFS

Whistle While You Work

When I think of “Whistle While You Work”, I immediately think of the Disney movie, Snow White.  I love how she gets all the animals to clean and help her with the house.  It’s much like we mothers envision for our own children, isn’t it?  But then reality sets in and our picture might look […]

The Un-Empty Nest

September…all around me, it seems this friend or that friend has helped their child or children get settled in at college, many of those the last child, the youngest. Many of my friends are now facing a new phase in their lives, the “empty nest.” Some parents look forward to it, some dread it. And […]

Ch~Ch~ o~ r~ e~ s?

Of course! I am a firm believer of chores. If we don’t give our children chores and responsibilities, then how can we expect them to be responsible, self-sufficient adults? Isn’t that one of the goals of raising children? This is one of our beliefs at the Clubb Academy! We are not perfect, nor is our […]

College Your Own Way

Years ago I read an article that questioned the idea of why we “put our children” on the bus, so to speak, after years of training them “not” to ride the bus. This really struck home with me; and, so far, has manifested itself into different, somewhat unique choices our children have made regarding college. […]

Homeschooling Isn’t the Problem

My wife had a conversation last night that troubles me. It wasn’t that the person or conversation was necessarily troubling, it was the idea that homeschooling has some inherently troublesome qualities. The thinking goes like this: All these people got caught up in legalism and they homeschooled…therefore the problem must be homeschooling. I hear that same argument […]

Housework . . . What’s the Point?

I don’t know about you, but sometimes doing housework feels like a losing battle. Especially with little kids in the house. You get the laundry done. Or so you think, only to discover another two loads under your daughter’s bed. Dishes get caught up, and it is discovered a few little somebodies used all the […]

Chores Help Keep the Family Running Smoothly

A few years ago, I found myself going around the house tidying up after the kids and doing all the cleaning and straightening. If something was out of place, I’d put it away.  It was easier to just do it all myself, but I was getting burned out and not a very happy camper that […]

Running on Stomachs!

It is said an army runs on its stomach and a family is no different. I have learned over the years that our family runs on our stomachs. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you are doing, when one person gets hungry things are going to go downhill very fast. I have found […]

Graduation and Beyond – A Different Perspective

We’ve been doing a lot of talking about college, work, and many other options coming up for our oldest upon graduation in the Spring. As I was thinking about our conversations, I realized how different our plan probably is from a lot of homeschooling families. We have encouraged our oldest to consider options and asked […]

Serving the Least of These

We got back from our missions trip last month. I am still processing it. It was a tough week and a great week. Our mission trip for the last 15 years (for me, 14 for Steven, and 2 for Beth) has been Royal Family Kids Camp. We dedicate one week every summer to hanging around […]

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
