My computer almost crashed and I thought I lost all my pictures on Christmas Eve 2013. Luckily, through a lot of tears and more prayer, I got my computer up and started transferring all of the thousands (yes, thousands) of … Continue reading
I thought homeschooling enabled you to teach your children the way you wanted and the way your little ones learned best, as long as they were learning. Through joining several different homeschool groups online, I’ve found that maybe that is … Continue reading
Okay I am SO excited about how God is blessing us!! I’ve toyed with Hearts of Dakota, A Beka and My Father’s World for a while now (since V was TWO years old)! Hearts of Dakota was a little too easy and dry for my little ones but instead of creating supplements, we kind of just fell off the wagon and read… and read…. and read some more! Now that V is 4 (4 y 1 m) and beginning to read, I decided it was time to get myself in order. I have been looking online all day and all night for used A Beka and My Father’s World materials. I was able to score social studies, science, phonics/reading/writing curricula from Abeka (just need the Letter and Sounds K workbook), Cuisinaire rods and book plus the teacher’s manual AND student sheets for My Father’s World! This should have cost me about $400 or more, but I was able to get it bit by bit, piece by piece and have paid maybe $150 INCLUDING shipping! (I don’t even think I paid $150, it’s more like $120 but we will throw in all those trips to the Dollar Tree.) I am so excited to try this out. They absolutely love doing their lessons – or “projects” as Princess calls it- and I really hope that this is what God has for us because it certainly makes all FOUR of us happy. It melts my heart when Warner comes home from working TWO jobs and can still muster up a smile when he hears all about the letters and words our little ones have learned. I just finalized the My Father’s World curriculum purchase today, so as soon as I get it, I will share my plan and the worksheets I’ve made to go along with it.
I’m so excited!! I don’t think I’ve EVER said “praise the Lord”, but I have said it about 100 times today! He’s so good!!!
P.S. Yes, I know I haven’t updated our letter of the day posts. #facepalm
