Choices, Choices - Curriculum We Use

Today's Google+ Hangout was all about curriculum choices and what we're both using in our homes this year. We talked about covering the 3 R's, paring down to what's important, and all of the fun we're planning for our home schools for the fall. We kept it short and sweet so that you can grab a moment to watch during your busy summer day.

Late Night Laughs

Kendra and I almost had too much fun last night at our Google Hangout! It was after 10pm Pacific and we chatted about what we had done that day, gave an impromptu tour of our school room, and clearly showed you that we do not have it all together!!

Watch and enjoy. And laugh. Lots of laughing. If you are reading this in your email, click the link to take you to the YouTube video.

On today's Google+ Hangout we were joined by Pam Barnhill of Everyday Snapshots !

Michele's favorite book about homeschooling is not - it's a general home management book that gets right to the core of working ourselves silly and learning to balance life. It's Professionalizing Motherhood, by Jill Savage and Liz Curtis Higgs.

Kendra's favorite book about homeschooling is Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home by Elizabeth Foss. In fact, I think I'll read it again this summer.
