    Taking the “School” Out of Homeschool

    I’ve been preparing for my new session at Teach Them Diligently this year – Preparing for Life. Not a Test. I remembered this post from years back and republished it this morning! Enjoy! Ā Taking the “School” Out of Homeschool I don’t know why we use the term homeSCHOOL sometimes. Ā I have been finding more and more when we take the word “school” out of our day, we actually learn much more. I spoke last year […]

    Free Bible Verse Valentine Printables

      Homemade Valentine’sĀ  Lately, I realize that my youngest son hasn’t done nearly the same amount of all the fun little stuff I did with my older ones when they were little. You know, the sugar cube pyramid for Egypt study? The salt dough volcanoes (although we DID do one of Mars this week which he loved!) It seems that he just got the short end of the stick lately for being the youngest, so […]

    The Best Friend Interview by Deborah Bode

Children have many “best friends,” “good friends,” and “acquaintances.” Sometimes they form a special bond with someone and that friendship can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, situations can change and the friendship may end because a child moves, different interests develop, or even the […]

    Family- Dependent and God- Dependent

    I took this photo today and posted on Instagram.   All four kids out playing in the woods on the ice. Makes me smile. 😍 #Homeschooling for us has built relationships that I know will be stronger each day. Yes, they bicker, and yes, it can be hard. But deep down we are each other’s people- we are family dependent and God dependent. Not peer dependent. Thankful God chose this path for us. #calledHome #simplyhomeschool […]
