Christmas School

Christmas School

Make December Homeschooling Different By December, we all need a bit of a break from the monotony of the regular homeschooling schedule, don’t we?  Some people choose to take the entire month off to focus on the preparations of Christmas and turning the hearts of their children toward the One that Christmas is all about….

Our Girls from World Help

These girls pulled on my heart strings.  Manjeri and Sure are from Uganda and our family had the pure pleasure of hosting them in our home for one short weekend while they were in for a presentation at our church.  One short weekend.  I never knew how close I could grow to two complete strangers…

An Amazing 4-H Club

Just recently, our local 4-H agent, Lois, started a Homeschool 4-H Club.  Can I just tell you how awesome it is???
