We signed up for Little Passports this past summer. I’d read good things about it. My children love to get mail and I was tired of Chirp magazine. Our first box contained a welcome letter from Sam and Sofia, the friends who go on international adventures and send us souvenirs, post cards and more each […]

We use Sonlight in our homeschool. Their educational approach to learning through books is a good fit for our family in this season.

DIY Magnetic Map of the World

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Keeper of Home, Teaching Tots (3 Responds)

  Last summer we bought a map for about $7 at Costco. It’s pretty big, it’s poster-like but lightly laminated if that makes sense. Wipeable, I guess you could say. I didn’t want to…well….tape it onto the wall like I did with posters when I was 13 so I toyed with finding a frame for […]

Acts of Kindness for Children, Joy and Kinder

I ate him while writing this. Yum! Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. But it can also be my least favorite time of year if I am not careful. It’s so easy to be swept up in the hustle and bustle that we forget that it’s not about presents and parties, […]
