Revealing Problems

October 15, 2013

I love books.  I love to read.  If it’s out I’ll read it.  If you invite me to your house and don’t want me to read your grocery list then you might want to hide it…or not invite me over. Recently, at a rummage sale, I purchased an old book.  Tucked in its pages I […]

September 11, 2013

Preschool Activities have been a must for us this year.  I did a post with 8 preschool activities that we did last week. Even though I do plan some separate activities for Addie I really like that she can join in on a lot of the activities we do in My Father’s World.  This year […]

I Don’t Want To…

August 5, 2013

No, I don’t really want to play Candyland…again. No, I don’t want to read One Fish, Two Fish, again. I kind of just want to finish the book I’m currently reading (the one with no pictures), or the sweater I’m currently knitting or the phone conversation I’m currently trying to have. No, I don’t want […]

Headbanz

June 6, 2013

Have you heard of Hedbanz?  Ella got the game as a birthday gift.  It is actually a game I would highly recommend.  Basically, you have a card of a thing that is on your head that you cannot see and you have to ask questions, in a certain amount of time, to figure out what […]

May 22, 2013

It was last October that the kids received two giant boxes via FedEx.  It was an early Christmas gift from their Grandpa.  It was a trampoline.  I was eager to set it up, but my wiser and more practical husband thought we should wait until spring and so we did. Spring happened to wait to […]

Big Boy

April 18, 2013

There comes a point when you realize your baby is not a baby anymore. It may be that he’s putting hair things around his neck all by himself or starting to really play with cars.   Or maybe it’s his increased interest in books. Or maybe it’s the black and blue mark on his eye […]

Silly Notion

April 9, 2013

I had this silly notion (who knows why?), that when I would be a, full-time, stay-at-home mom, that keeping the house clean and organized would be easy.  I know, I know… My couch is often a state of modern art with our clean laundry.   4 precious cherubs and a dog later (not to mention […]

God Cares About the Journey

April 7, 2013

“Really?  You want to read that book, AGAIN?  How about this one instead?” 3 year olds,…they love to read the same book over and over and over again.  Why is it that they love it and adults fight to keep their eyes open?  I suppose there is something that is stimulating to their little brains […]

A Few of Our Favorite Games

April 5, 2013

These are a few of our favorite things games (are you envisioning Julie Andrews jumping on a bed??). Wedgits These are really neat building blocks that every child in our house loves.  Sawyer can build with them and Cade loves to create things from the book that came with the “blocks”.  These stretch spatial skills […]

Chidren’s Spiritual Gifts Inventory

March 25, 2013

I was on a forum at “iambaker.net” for homeschoolers and the topic came up that one of the most beneficial things about homeschooling is that you can tap into whatever your child is good and and run with it.  You can adapt almost any “school” subject to fit a theme that interests your child(ren).  This […]
