We were just at Michaels to pick up stuff for Nino’s sacramental preparation portfolio (will blog that at a later date) and he found a book on how to draw comics, except it wasn’t on sale, and the “50% off any item at regular price” coupon we had couldn’t be applied to it — guess …

Posting this for my friend Madora who asked for a bit of guidance on how to homeschool Science with a first grader without the use of a textbook. Prior to fifth grade and often even beyond, I rarely use a textbook. I find that living books very much fit our homeschooling lifestyle and personalities, so …

Reposting it for another friend who's due with her fourth child soon and slightly panicking.] The key …

To do that, they need to reach a certain level of maturity in the different areas of their lives, sexuality being only one of them. But in many colleges and universities today, sexuality issues seem to outweigh everything else. …
A friend with little ones asked me about reading recommendations for her 6-7 year olds, so I thought I’d give her a list of what our 6.5-year-old is reading right now. Hope this helps, J! Life of Fred Decimals and Percents – his big sister’s book, but he’s reading it for fun. Get Into Gear, …
