Are you concerned with the clothing styles that are available for young girls today? Do you find it a constant struggle to find clothes that you deem ‘appropriate’ for your preteen daughter? Do you find yourself explaining time and time again to your daughter why she can’t dress like all her friends? Do you long to spend more time with your daughter one on one?
I like to use a variety of Bible curriculum throughout the year. Those of you who know me will say, “No! Really? You, use several different resources?” Yes, it’s true. When it comes to curriculum, I’m sort of like a hungry bee that likes to flit from flower to flower enjoying all the tasty flavors of nectar. And as a positive, my children and I
As a follower of the Charlotte Mason method, we learn a lot from living books.

Boys are curious creatures if you ask me. One day I think I’ve got mothering boys down, and the next day I realize I have no clue! They want different things than girls – they need different things than girls. One thing I’ve seen in both of my boys, as compared to my daughter, is the need for independence. They both want to do things
At the beginning of each school day I read the Bible aloud to the kids, and we work on our memory verses. However, I like to use a curriculum as a supplement to help us delve deeper into the Bible. For my youngest (1st grade), I chose Explorer’s Bible Study: Beginnings II ~ God’s Promise. God’s Promise is an Old Testament (Genesis through Malachi) study
