Little People Know

Sometimes I fear we underestimate how smart kids are. But kids remember so many odd little facts! Even the most seemingly inattentive kids recall more than you’d ever expect. I was listening to my Bible one morning while I made breakfast. I like to have my personal devotions alone in my bedroom and use that […]

Training for a Marathon

Oh I have thoughts to ramble through… I’ve talked about how our girls sit in church with us before. It started as a necessity. With Covid regulations putting a halt to children’s church, there was no way to send our duo of wild ladies downstairs while we soaked in a sermon. This left us no […]

Teaching from a Place of Rest (The Great Homeschool Experiment: Week 3)

This week started out horrible. Not just cutesy “oh we got off on the wrong foot, but muddled through!” horrible. I’m talking “mind-blowing, gut puking, insomnia inducing, we’re never going to recover, all our attitudes need major readjustment” horrible. My kids have their own unique sets of issues. One has anxiety. One has ADHD and […]
