Pilgrim’s Progress

At the risk of sounding like I’ve been living under a rock my whole life (which I’ve discovered I have… in this area at least), I wanted to share something in case there is someone else that hasn’t heard about this either. A few weeks ago, I heard about a movie called “The Pilgrim’s Progress.”...

Fika Friday: Spain

Fika Friday again! The other country that we are studying this month (with the Well-Educated Heart rotation) is Spain. For our Fika we had homemade churros with chocolate sauce, homemade Natillas de Leche (Spanish Custard), and milk. We also listened to Spanish folk music, looked at some Spanish paintings, and read about some Spanish painters....

Fika Friday: The Netherlands

We are following along with the Well-Educated Heart rotation for our homeschool. This month, one of the countries that we are learning about is the Netherlands. Today for Fika Friday, we had a Netherlands theme. We listened to folk music, ate stroopwafels and Gouda cheese (along with crackers, apples, and apple juice). We read some...

Swedish Unit: Kanelbullens Dag (Cinnamon Bun Day)

When I started looking into homeschooling, one idea that I kept hearing about was poetry tea time. I thought this idea sounded so fun! So we adopted it but tweaked it to make it even more personal and meaningful to us. Instead of calling it teatime, it’s Fika. In Sweden, Fika is a daily tradition,...

I started creating this room last September (even though, at the time, I didn’t think I would get to actually homeschool full time) and have been...

Memorizing Good and Beautiful Things

Evelyn used to love taking baths. And then recently, she randomly started hating them (maybe because my Roxanne started hating them too and they rub off on each other). She particularly didn’t like getting water poured on her head to rinse off the shampoo. Last night when I was bathing them, I started pouring the...

The Gift of Time

  Today was Father’s day. This is the letter that I wrote to Jershon… Jershon, I recently read a poem that made me think of you and put my own thoughts and feelings into words… A POEM FOR MY HUSBAND by Carol Mader While you work, you give us the most cherished of all treasures...

Shema, Honey, and Learning

My boys’ last day of school was on Thursday. It was bittersweet, as they won’t be going back to public school next year. I am both nervous and excited to take on the sole responsibility for my children’s education. We will start up a full time homeschooling schedule in the fall, but for the summer,...
