How to fill your homeschool library

A family homeschool library doesn’t need to be huge or take up a lot of space, if it is created with thought. It should be built with solid resources and classics.

Nature study in winter

Nature study has always been a big part of my life. When I was little, my dad would walk around the yard with me and tell the names of the flowers and trees. I have done the same with my children. Nature study doesn’t have to be fancy. We just need to learn to observe […]

What I believe about creation, and why it matters
