This past weekend I attended our state homeschool conference. I love going just to have a little get away with my husband. It also is great to have some undistracted time to browse homeschool curriculum and hear from some veteran homeschoolers. My friend, Jamie, from The Unlikely Homeschool, just did a post on her haul… Continue reading Homeschool Conference Buys
I made my reading goal this year much higher and I was a little afraid of how it would work out, especially with a few extra things on my plate. I’m happy to report, I’m ahead of schedule! Apparently instead of blogging, I’ve been reading, which really is okay with me. Though I do miss… Continue reading Reading Update March 2014
I love to read! According to Goodreads, in 2013 I read 24 books. I thought that was pretty good, for all that I have going on as a homeschooling, Average Housewife. Then I thought about what goal I should have for this year. I thought if I upped it by one, I could call it… Continue reading My Reading Goals for 2014
In the book Bread and Wine there is a section about feasting and fasting. The author shares how we need both. She uses the term fasting loosely, which I follow in this post. (Though I also believe there is a time for fasting, or abstinence of food for prayer.) I feel like in my #15×15… Continue reading #15×15 Check-in: Feasting and Fasting
A few years ago I thought I was set. I thought I had the perfect curriculum choices for my family. The rest of this homeschool journey would be easy, just get the next level of this book and I’m done. I found out quickly that that was not going to work. My children are different. They… Continue reading Our 2013-2014 Homeschool Curriculum

Well, it’s been a while and I’m glad you’re still out there. You are still there, aren’t you? I can’t blame you if you’re not. It has been a crazy month, but I’m back with some of what’s been keeping me busy. Books.

I haven’t had made much time for reading lately but I do still have a few books going. Since I last shared the books I was reading, I ended up giving up on Les Miserables. I just couldn’t keep pushing through, so the movie will have to do. The following books I do plan on finishing,… Continue reading What’cha Readin’?
Last month I wrote a post, Dayspring, You Made a Mistake. The people over at Dayspring took the mistake quite well. We’re listening! And we’re ok with this one. 🙂 RT @avghousewife: @dayspring, You Made a Mistake averagehousewife.com/2013/01/17/day… #inrl — DaySpring (@DaySpring) January 17, 2013 They even sent me another perfect chip-less mug!

This morning we were reading the book, Emily, about Emily Dickinson for literature. I decided to dust off one of our poetry books, that my grandmother gave me years ago, and search for some poems by Emily Dickinson. As I finished reading the few poems that were listed, I continued browsing and came across this bit… Continue reading Husbands Take Note
