    When a public school teacher told me my youngest son would never read, I said to myself, “We’ll see about that.” The first step required pulling him out of the school system.  We  tried a one-room Christian school for awhile, but he still struggled. Finally God allowed him to come home to school. During that...

  • Home’s Cool After a three year hiatus, I’m homeschooling again. Joy! Trial! Fun! Work! The list of words is endless…. Big Bro needed kindergarten, but his parents’ schedules didn’t match the local schools schedule at all. Having him here reminds me of all the reasons I homeschooled for 25 years. Why I home school The...

  • Saturday we went apple picking. The mountains of North Carolina held crisp cool weather, and crisp tasty apples! Our girls loved the hunt for apples, and munching on apples, and riding in the wagon with apples. A wonderful time was had by all. When we left, my Sister-in-law took the big bag of apples back...

  • 09/17/17--19:50: Occupying the 4-Year-Old
  • The definition of insanity Home schooling a 5-year-old while his 4-year-old sister hangs out nearby and the 3-month-old baby runs the show from her swing creates one crazy place! At least week #2 of home school went much better than week #1. We see improvement. But we require more tweaking. The problem I’ve focused on...

    Who taught who? I am fairly sure I learned more than my children learned when I homeschooled them. In the end, despite all the testing that the government requires, learning isn’t really measurable. So we will never know for certain, but I’m pretty sure I did. And now, obviously, my heavenly Father thinks I didn’t...

  • 10/01/17--04:30: Occupying the 4-year-old, II
  • If you read the first post here, you know the back story. As home schooling happens, the almost resident 4-year-old needs to keep busy without distracting. She plays on her own with a collection of mini animals, her dolls, a cash register and Mr. Potato Head, but too many days in the week cause a...

  • 10/08/17--20:30: Review: The Ark
  • I’ve visited the Creation Museum several times. It’s amazing! Then my mom asked me if I’d like to plan a trip to see the new Ark Encounter. Would I! It’s impossible to keep a balanced perspective when I am over-the-top impressed by what I’ve seen from a distance as it was built. Here goes the...

  • 10/16/17--04:30: Review: The Ark, part II
  • So much! Our visit to the Ark Encounter provided a learning experience we won’t forget. You can read the first part here. The ticket price seems extravagant, but once you arrive, you realize you get what you paid for! The first hint of that, after you get over the size of the ark, is the...
