I thought I would share a few blog posts that have blessed me recently!
Why I Keep A Clutter-Free Home – I found myself agreeing with this post, and longing to be able to do this. However, we don’t have a few acres in the country. We have a very small yard, and in the winter months especially I need to be able to keep them busy! If we are ever blessed to live in the country I will be purging more toys. I have a large cabinet for them right now.
On Being Outnumbered and Teaching From Rest – “I’m finding that the hardest part of homeschooling with toddlers and babies underfoot is that the vision that lived in my head since I first dreamed up this crazy idea to homeschool looks nothing like my reality. ” Yes and Amen. I have such dreams…most days they are crushed by the reality of six children that don’t share those dreams.
You Can’t Keep Sin Out – What I got out of this post is summed up in one sentence that Amy wrote. “We MUST stop believing we can follow a formula or method and reap perfection. ” A good reminder!
Becoming Who I Am – If you have lost your mom, this post is good to read.
Finally, here is a new video that we made for our Character Badge Kickstarter Campaign that shows what our children think about Character Badges. We think it’s pretty funny. (If you are reading this in an email, click here to watch it!). There are 20 days left to make a pledge to get your Character Badge set, if we don’t reach our funding goal than we will not be able to manufacture these. So now is your only chance!
