a bit of homeschooling encouragement, from our family to yours

'Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.' (Isaiah 43:19, KJV)

We often see this scripture in association with the new year. Yet, the beauty of this journey is that any point can be the start of something new. 'His mercies are new every morning' (Lamentations 3:22-23), and our level of grace for ourselves should be that it is totally okay to correct mid-stream and then move forward. If it's not working, toss it or place it aside for later. Look for clarity; chase after simplicity.

So with spring firmly at hand, here are some thoughts--and links--on simple ideas that you might "birth" in spring, even if only to give your homeschool a fresh breath for summer, or to give you a needed break.

Reading list for the homeschool mom (I think I may make my own list later this spring)

Math games

Math living books

Science in the garden

A new season is a perfect time to switch gears and take advantage of getting out of doors. Whether you enjoy the picture book version or the version for older students/ adults, William Kamkwamba's determination to build a windmill in famine and drought-ravaged Malawi is nothing short of entertaining and inspirational. Couple that with this opportunity to build a mechanical windmill, and you have an unforgettable science lesson! Enjoy!

I stated in a recent interview that the revised version of "Our History, HIS-Story," volume 1, would be available in March, and I met my deadline with one day to spare! The first orders left our home this morning!

Thanks for your continued support, and be sure to share the good news!
