An experiment…

Earlier this summer our local library replaced all of their ceiling tiles.  They put them out on the curb for trash pick up, but we picked them up instead.  We knew they were sound proof, which meant they’d provide some sort of insulation and thought it might work on the outside of the coop…but we […]

It's not all textbooks…

READ MORE

In our homeschool, it’s not just about textbooks.  We started school August 8th and while my Cactus and my Opulent have been working diligently at their 3R’s, they’ve also been involved in other projects. Today, (I wish I’d known they were doing this, I’d have taken pictures!), but they added another bin to my compost […]

READ MORE

We have know reached a major milestone…the graduation of our oldest son from homeschool high school.  It has been a journey…full of hills and valleys, but the Lord saw us through them all.

Will someone please tell me how, my Travis Tree went from this adorable, little of bundle of love to this… A handsome, God-fearing, young man…an adult, in what seems like a split second, but the calendar tells me has been 18 years. He graduates from high school today. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’m proud. Others […]

We graduate our oldest son from high school the beginning of June.  I started the notebook for planning this January of 2010 ~ is that normal?  Well, for me it is…see the whole process is making me just a tad bit neurotic!  Okay, okay, I admit a lot neurotic, but is that really abnormal…for me…no. […]

Breath in, breathe out…

That is what I’m telling myself right now as I mentally survey what we have accomplished since the first of the year in our homeschool.  I feel like it isn’t much, it is more than I feel like it is, but the reality is, it is more than just academics that we’ve learned. While I […]

My Children's education…

READ MORE

(Originally posted March 24, 2010) In the last two weeks alone I have encountered enough filth, red tape, and politic interference to question if I have steered my children’s education in the right direction. Oh, don’t misunderstand, God is first, but has He been primary? Has His Word been the cornerstone of our days? I […]

Caught off guard, but I'm laughing…

(This article was originally posted on April 30, 2010 on my old website, it’s amusing though non-the-less.) My 11 year old is such a character! Words like detailed, obssessive, and ordered describe him well. Just as the phrase, ’11 going on 40′, sums him up to a ‘T’. As such, the following is not surpising, […]
