Homeschooling Year Round!

Hey Everyone!!!

Todays topic is why we homeschool year round. I know alot of people think I am crazy for doing this but lets discuss why I do it!

First of all I wish we could take the summer off from school it would be great to sleep in, do fun outside activities and go on all kinds of field trips for 3 months. But lets be honest even with just the weekend our kiddos can go brain dead and forget last Fridays subject information. Trust me I know first hand what that is like. 😞 . My kids go totally blank when we take vacation time so this is why we school year round, I like that our schedule never changes and my kids know what to expect 365 days a year. Do they complain about this? Well maybe a little when friends say they have the summer off but for the most part it is just our way of life. This doesn't mean we never take a break of course we take  a week at Thanks giving and two weeks at Christmas off and then whenever we get a chance to camp we take some days off there also. Schooling year round allows more freedom for our family. This is great because when my husband has time off we can take time off and go do something in the middle of the year for vacation.  I don't ever feel guilty for taking a week off here or there because I know we school hard all year long.  So if your curious about  what it might be like to school year round I highly suggest you give it a try ,you might just fall in love with it !  I hope this blog post was helpful and encourages you to try different scheduling with your homeschool if you have any questions leave a comment below and I would love to get back to you .  What does your school year look like?    Until next time God bless !

Hello everyone!

Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
