Springing Into April

Depending on where you live, Spring has been a little slow to appear this year.  I know that the past couple of weeks have brought snow storms in a lot of areas of the US.  Strangely, where I live in Wyoming, it has been rather nice.  We’ve had a few rain showers, but many days […]

Monthly Reader Linkups

Homeschool Methods Linkup-Unschooling

The rebel. The independent. The freethinker. Unschooling is the misjudged member of the homeschool faction. The one protesting cursive and workbooks, chanting “Down with tests. Down with quizzes.” Life is education. The world is their classroom. Unschooling has a raised brow reputation. I admit, when I started homeschooling 6 years ago, I was scheduled and […]

Homeschool Methods Linkup–Preschool

APRIL FRESH LAUNDRY

Warm sunshine and the smell of fresh Spring air always make me think of hanging out laundry. There is *nothing* better than clothes hung out to dry, especially sheets! So here are two recipes that a lot of people have asked me about over the years, so I thought I’d share them. Actually, the Laundry […]

Flats Being Mailed

Just a Little Flat

I’ve mentioned before that I go to the World’s Best Co-op Evah…did I happen to mention Biology Dissection Lab? Well, it is co-op season again and we are midterm into this session of co-op. One of the classes I have done before, and am teaching again now, is a Flat Stanley Class. There are so […]

Don’t Give Up! Know Your Child and Trust Yourself

Are you looking at your homeschool today and seeing everything that’s lacking and everything you’ve done wrong? Perhaps you’re worried that your kids won’t have everything they need to be successful in college and in life. I’ve been there! Now I’m out the other side, as I have already experienced success with my kids in […]

Vegetable Gardening

I LOVE to grow my own veggies! We have had a garden for about 6 years now and just expanded it last year. One of the reasons I love it is because it brings back memories of my childhood. We lived on about an acre of land in the city. Not a large lot but […]

Financial Literacy in the Kitchen

April is Financial Literacy Month, and there is no other skill I wish I had learned as a young adult more than financial literacy. Sure, I knew how to balance a checkbook, but I didn’t realize that financial literacy is more about using the money you have wisely and that looking for ways to make […]

Spring Flowers

Spring Flower Gardening

My favorite thing to do is play in the dirt. I have said it before and I will say it again – there is nothing better than planting beautiful flowers or a bountiful vegetable garden each spring. We are already working hard making plans for both. This year I wanted to plant some daffodils, the […]

Fostering Individuality

One of the most important roles as a parent is to foster, and more importantly support, the unique individuality of our children. In some cases this comes as second nature, and other times, it seems easier to drive blindfolded. The bottom line is that our children want to feel autonomous in this world, and we […]

Animals at the Zoo Unit Study

April is National Zoo Month! My family loves going to zoos. My kids love to watch the animals, smell the animals, and run all over the zoo like animals. They fit right in! A fantastic way to get away from the home school table is to turn a school day into a fun family outing […]

Finance

Teaching Financial Accountability

When I was in my last year of high school, I took a class in economics. It was interesting enough, but I mostly came out with the idea that “one must invest in the stock market” without really knowing at all how the stock market actually works. It was good to learn about supply and […]

9 Budgeting Rules That Bring Peace of Mind

I recently read a couple of articles about the leading causes of divorce. For a long time the one thing that has topped that list is fighting over money. In fact, in a 2012 study done by a researcher at Kansas State University, she found that fighting over money early on in marriage led 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 […]
