To be able to view the world as a child is an amazing ability. As adults we sometimes need to reminded to “stop and smell the flowers”. Wait is a beautifully illustrated book that does just that…reminds us to stop and see the beauty around us.

Our Curriculum Isn’t Working For Us…Now What?

This is our third year homeschooling.  We started homeschooling our oldest in first grade.  As a homeschool mama, I know that learning isn’t across the board. Just because you have a friend that raves about a certain program, doesn’t mean it’s going to work with your child.  I also know that just because a program works for my 8-year-old, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for my kindergartener one day.  I like to pretend it will so I can save money, but in reality there is a chance it won’t.curriculum Read the rest of this entry »
