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 […]

Every Day is a Gift

Every day is a gift. It is hard to remember what a gift today is. I have spent a lot of time looking back over the past couple of years and complaining. I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough time. I don’t have enough love, respect, and on and on and on. . […]

September is Not my Favorite Month”

Here in New York, most school districts begin their school year right after the Labor Day weekend. When they were younger and in public school this was an extremely stressful time for my boys. As the lazy days of August began to wind down, it was easy to see them growing more apprehensive. To make […]

Planning to Freeze

My plan for the new school year to freeze to keep me ahead of the game. Our family is at the tail end of a summer long renovation of our home, including our kitchen, a couple of bathrooms and some major painting all throughout our home. It has been an absolute roller-coaster but completely worth […]

These books are similar to the “Magic Tree House” series, but are geared more for a Christian audience. In these books, cousins Patrick and Beth take a trip […]

10 Things I Didn’t Expect from Homeschooling

1. I really, sincerely, honestly do enjoy being with my children all day, every day. “I couldn’t stand to be with my kids all day! When do you get ‘me time’”? If I had a quarter for each time I heard that! The truth is that my kids are pretty cool and I really do […]

Why I Love Classical Conversations

This past year my family joined a local Classical Conversations community.   I did not know what to expect…but I fell in love. I found an instant community of support for myself, as a homeschool mother, and my children, as homeschoolers. The moms that participate in Classical Conversations are so friendly! They always are available to […]

Three Fun Books to Help With Writing

In debating our current curriculum choices, I knew that I really wanted to focus on the basic subjects . . . Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. I had the math down; we actually do a few different things in that subject. I even do a few different things with reading. But writing is just a subject […]

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 […]
