Here is a list of blogs, articles and websites that have either encouraged me this week, or helped me with the task at hand.

 

Robyn at Heart of Wisdom wrote Discover the Biggest mistake made by Homeschoolers.  Too many homeschoolers make the mistake I made in my first years homeschooling–setting aside Bible time for academics–putting trust in the wrong foundation!

Though I know putting Bible first is important, and we make this a practice, it is always good to be reminded of the importance, and to check how things are really going on in your home.

 

Though I have done with this blending activity with Daniel I sure wished I had seen this idea several months ago.  So if you are starting to blend, starting learning to read lessons check out this idea..  

 

Through one of the homeschool mums at The Homeschool Lounge I rediscovered Laine’s Letters.  Many years I was regularly encouraged by these emails.  I have subscribed again and look forward to the regular encouragement.   You can view back issues online. 

 

Talking of The Homeschool Lounge – this is the place for Homeschool Mums!  To date there are 4000 mums, all involved in forums and discussion groups.  There is also the opportunity to create your own little Nook, a place to jot notes about your thoughts, your day, your learning … whatever!  The Homeschool Lounge is especially designed for Homeschool Mums to find support and encouragement – so why don’t you head on over and check us out.  You’ll find me here..  

  

This week I’ve started thinking about Christmas.  I’ve bought a few gifts and when I came across this ideaI earmarked it immediately!  My children have started their gift giving list so they can start making gifts for their family and friends.

I have been reminded of The Rebelution through a few different friends this week, online and IRL, so I re-visited their blog and was reminded how powerful this blog is.  These boys have a mission!  I have printed out the latest article with plan to read it to my kids over dinner – to challenge them “What will you do to change the world today?”   I plan to do this regularly with different articles that come through the blog.  I have also bought their book so when that arrives we will all go through that together.
