Homeschool Cooking Curriculum
What subjects do you teach in your homeschool? I’m willing to bet that Math and Language Arts are on the list, and probably Science and History too. You might even have Art, Music, and Bible included in your plans. I don’t know about you, but my list of “to-do’s” each day keeps getting longer and …
We spend a lot of time in our minivan traveling to and from church, homeschool activities, library visits, and grocery trips. While I’m not necessarily a fan of being stuck in the van with the kids when we could be doing other things, I do like to think we redeem that time by listening to …
Like every other parent, I want my kids to get along. I mean, who wants to listen to kids argue, tease, and fight all day? It’s tiresome, annoying, and just plain unpleasant to listen to that! But I want my kids to get along with each other not just for my own peace & quiet …

You’re on your way home from a busy day after running around taking your kids to music lessons, co-ops, athletics, or maybe a field trip. You haven’t got a clue what to serve your crew for dinner. Do you swing by your favourite take out joint? Order a pizza? Make pancakes? What else is a …
Step into history with Carole P. Roman's If You Were Me and Lived in ... history books!
Today I’m sharing with you about a fun book series that will help your children step right into history by imagining that they they are a part of it. This is by far my children’s favourite way of relating to history — they just love to use what they are learning and explore other lands, cultures, …
Every Day with God: 365 Daily Devos for Girls is a short and sweet daily devotional for young girls. From the day we received it, my 5 year old has been carrying it around both in the house and away from home. She’s tickled pink to have her own daily devotional just like her big …
Why Adults Should be Reading Kid Lit - why I'm spending so much time reading Juvenile Fiction selections
You know what’s on my bedside table more often than not these days? Children’s books. No, I don’t mean picture books (which I’m already reading en mass to three little girls who beg me to from sun-up to sun-down), but what my children call “chapter books”. Why would a grown woman, especially one who is striving for …
Not "Back-to-School" 2016
I’m sure your newsfeed has been as full of first day of school pictures and posts as mine has been! Public schoolers and homeschoolers alike are excited about sharp new pencils, shiny new books, and a fresh start. And there is something almost intoxicating about the shopping isles full of school and office supplies in August …
Getting Started with French {Review} - Getting Started with French is a great way to introduce French in the homeschool!
