Taking Lilacs to Thilda’s Grave

Yesterday morning, we went took some lilacs to Thilda’s grave.  This was our second year doing this and this year felt even more meaningful since going on our trip to Sweden last fall and getting to know Swen and Thilda even better.   We spent quite a while wandering around the cemetery, looking at a lot...

Schoolroom Rearranged

Yesterday, on a whim, I decided to rearrange and reorganize in the schoolroom.  If you’re curious about how it used to be set up, you can see that here.  A lot is still the same, but I made some changes too. We’ve acquired quite a few books this year for the Well-Educated Heart monthly rotation and...

Gardening: Month Four

“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

Although I have known The Exodus story for most of my life, I didn’t know very much about the Passover celebration before last year, and even then I barely...

Gardening: Month Three

Another month has flown by and our garden is getting a little ridiculous. Haha.  The aroma in our house is becoming more and more “earthy” and we have plants taking over everywhere.   We’re still really enjoying our garden, but I’d be lying if I said that I’m not looking forward to it warming up outside...

Math that Inspires

I mentioned in this post that I’ve been amazed at how the gospel is woven into all of the subjects -even math.  Math has been helping my boys, especially, to strengthen their connection with God and to seek and receive personal revelation. The math curriculum that we are using for Landon and Porter is Math Inspirations. ...

Education for Real Life

I ran across a talk by Henry B. Eyring called Education for Real Life that I found to be really insightful and inspiring.  It goes along well with some things that I was talking about in my last post about weaving spiritual and secular learning together, so I’m going to dive into more of that...

Raising Children of the Promised Day

Like I mentioned in my one of my last posts, lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the gathering of Israel. Ever since beginning homeschooling almost a year ago, and especially over the past couple of months, I have felt the Lord moving me and impressing upon me...
