Counting the Days

Ahhhh . . . March. The month that ushers in Spring. How I love thee! You are also that month that reminds me that I’m another year older (though I’ve been “29 and holding” for quite a few years now; so it’s really not so bad). As you read this post, I’m actually in Florida, […]

Let’s Plan a Meal

I have an eight-year-old daughter who loves to get in the kitchen and whip up a mess of something to eat!  She’s quite adept at making pancakes from scratch or throwing together a roux for creamed tuna or homemade mac ’n’ cheese without a word of instruction from me. Because I do the meal planning and […]

Shopping Smart or Wasting Money?

You can call it being frugal, smart shopping, stockpiling, or being cheap; it doesn’t matter. You know it’s all about the money when raising a family. Being a larger family trying to live on one income in a two income world, it gets tight at times. We raised our children to not be picky eaters […]

Winter Unit Study

I’m digging back into our homeschool archives – way back to 2008, in fact – to a time when my kids and I did a unit study on winter. If you were to survey my children, who are now 21, 19, 16 and 15, they would probably still list this as one of their top […]

Grieving from Within the Dark Silence

Death. Grief. At some point, we all face losing someone we love. The process of grieving, especially for those very close to us, is difficult. As I write this, it has only been a week since I lost my father. I have lost people close to me before. It is difficult each time, but this […]

Guess What Pops Up in March?

I love to seek out unique days each month. A new favorite is coming on the second Thursday in March–Popcorn Lovers Day! Who knew there was a day set aside just for those of us who love that warm, fluffy, slightly crunchy stuff? Although a couple of members of my family firmly believe that popcorn […]

I Love….Geography!

I was all set to write this post about “Products I Love” because, as a homeschooler, I’m always wondering what other people LOVE…and I’m always looking for some new review or some new product that is going to make everything “easier.” I thought long and hard.  I did not want to disappoint you with a sad […]

Loving the Hard to Love Child

My second child was a handful from the moment she was conceived. Yes, that’s right, conceived. I was plagued with hyperemesis gravidarum – ending up having to have regular IV fluid at the hospital throughout the pregnancy. Her birth ended with complications that left me bedridden for several weeks. Breast feeding was challenging. The child […]

Caution: Curves Ahead

This week, when I washed the laundry, I had something new to fold—training bras. It was just another reminder that my kids are getting older. I’ve never been down this road before and I can’t see around the bend to see how it’s going to go. I know that each step in raising kids is […]

Winter Boredom Busters

Sometimes winter can seem endless. It’s cold, there may be snow or ice on the ground, and it seems like it gets dark before the afternoon is half over. Everyone is restless and Mom is just trying to make it to bedtime. What to do? These are ideas I have suggested to my children to […]

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 […]
