Let the Children Come to Me

I am currently in my third year of homeschooling with Seton Home Study School. This year my preschooler attends a private half-day program. While Brycen is at school, we complete the majority of the work for my 1st, 4th, and 6th graders. Breelyn, my beautiful new baby girl, joins us as we go through the boys’ lessons. Some days are cozy, heavenly days, when all the stars align and the angels sing over us. Some days are tough days—days when I find myself fantasizing about running back to the public school and dropping off the boys…

The Shape of Things to Come

I chuckled when I went to my local fitness center on January 2 this year; all the treadmills and elliptical trainers were taken. This was in the middle of the day when the place is generally deserted, so I figure the crowd was made up of New Year’s resolutions. I have no doubt that machines will once again be widely available in just a few weeks, which is a bit sad considering the sorry state of fitness in the United States, some of it within our home school families.
