Good Reading

I am loving this book. As Rich and I are praying about homeschooling I am researching as many books as possible. to want to feel ready, but I don't know if thats possible. I'm hoping to get my feet wet at least before I jump in. But this book is so reassuring and specific about texts and teaching examples, and thats just what I need to direct us into being an active learning household. It is also neat that many of the books mentioned are ones that my Mom used with me and my sisters for the two years she taught us. I still really like the Narration approach and I think they will work well together. This book gave me more of a specific place to start.

I have also been mending jeans, and embroidering wedding and baby shower gifts. And I have many more to go! Hope to share pics with you soon!

I've been thinking these past few days about what it would be like to home school... From what I've heard, it's an amazing experience to have with your kids... :)

When and if I have my own little juniors and junior-ettes, I'll be asking to borrow this book... :D

And, btw... I like the new header! Very pretty... and very Spring-y... :)
