The Swiss Family Robinson
Not only is this a splendid read aloud for all ages, but parents who love to set up a unit study could easily make this a year-long project just by looking up the animals, plants, invention, and land forms discussed.

Surviving Life with Boys: Managing the Dirt
"boy, n. a noise with dirt on it
Any of these things could be just as useful in a house full of girls. Several children = chaos, no matter what the gender ratio. I just think that with boys, the chaos is magnified a bit."
This wonderful series by Kendra is not only one we can relate to but a practical one. Helping those boys build habits managing toys, laundry and the bathroom.

Homeschooling High School Learning Styles
My two eldest children are different - especially in their learning styles (well, all my children are - we are a Hodgepodge like that). So my son has had a much different sort of senior year than my daughter did last year. And we've had a much different approach as we reach graduation. How thankful I am for homeschooling and how we can tailor curriculum, plans and our days to learning styles that best serve each child!

And a January update!

How Morning Room Time Builds Learning Skills for Later
All those mornings they had that independent time. They sat and looked through books. They stacks blocks, rolled cars. All those mornings, it was practice and skill building.

Practical Prayer
As a young mother, I thought I was supposed to get off in my little corner and have my quiet time. More and more that became a hard thing to do. I didn’t quite understand how I was supposed to pray without ceasing.

I imagined myself, face down, in the middle of the floor trying to pray and acting oblivious to children running all around me, hollering, “Mama!” “Mama!” Me, answering, “Quiet now children, I’m praying.”

The Lord has gently taught me that prayer should be the foundation of our day.
