Field Trip: Book Publishing, Printing, and Binding

My eldest brother works for a small book publishing company where he prints and binds books all day (not really sure if I am allowed to say the company, so I just won’t).  There are only a few people who work there (only two people are in my brother’s department). They print books in all… Continue reading Field Trip: Book Publishing, Printing, and Binding

Fosterfields Family Field Trip

A few weeks ago we decided to take a historical field trip to a place called Fosterfields.  We never heard of it before but it sounded neat because it had an interactive farmhouse that I thought the boys would like.  The cost was $20 for the total four of us and I think we got… Continue reading Fosterfields Family Field Trip

Homeschooling Whys

“What’s wrong with ‘regular’ school?” “You homeschool? Good for you! That must be hard.  I could never do that myself.” “Shouldn’t your kids be in school right now?

Schooling at Home

These two boys are a daily challenge for me.  I get to hear them laugh, cry, whine, yell, and grunt on a regular basis.  They frustrate me each day but they also make me see that they are such amazing blessings.  What great children I have; it is completely true.   God is guiding their… Continue reading Schooling at Home
