Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

  Economics is not an exciting subject! It’s not one of those that makes students excited when they hear it’s on the schedule! Enter Economics for Everybody by R.C.

Back To School Verse

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

I’ve been praying about a great verse to base our school year on. The other night, I thought of one and then realized it’s a saying not a verse. “To know Him and make Him known” It’s a really excellent sentiment and based in Scripture but I’m back to praying for the right verse for […]

Back To School?

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

This fall starts my 11th year of homeschooling! I can hardly believe that. What a journey it’s been.

I haven’t started on this […]

Oops…..not yet! Normally, we start school the day after Labor Day but we are on vacation. Many parts of our trip are super educational and historic so I don’t feel badly at all! I have the books to get started. I have the basic plans for the year. I have not scheduled the first couple […]

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

We were given the opportunity to review Math Mammoth’s BlueSeries. This series is worktexts–it explains as well as problems for the student to work on–it’s like a textbook workbook in one.
