Favorite Books & Documentaries 2020

Each morning I sit down with my children for a ritual we call Morning Time. It involves singing a hymn, memorizing scripture and lots of reading. We read from a collection of books each day, enjoying learning together from books on a broad range of topics. Morning Time makes up the backbone of our homeschool. We have read so many […]

What I’ve Been Reading: January + February 2020

Each month I share short reviews of all the books I’ve finished lately. I’m always looking for books to add to my list! Have you read anything awesome lately? I’d love to hear about it in the comments! I realized the other day, that I never hit publish on this post in January… or February. Yikes! I’m embarrassed to be […]

What I’ve been Reading Lately: December 2019

Every month I share short and simple reviews of the books I’ve been reading lately. You should know that I don’t generally have a problem setting aside a book if I’m not interested in it. There are just too many awesome books out there to waste my time on one I’m not into. However, there are also books that I […]

What I’ve Been Reading: September 2019

Hey there! I’m happy to share my thoughts on the books I read in September!  While I read some really great books, I feel like it was a pretty slow month for me. I just haven’t taken the time to just sit and read very much. But I was still able to finish 8 books this month, and I’m on […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately: August 2019

August has been a crazy busy month for us.  Between soccer tournaments (aka lots of driving), starting a new school routine (our kids are going one day a week to on-site classes), and a new very-part-time job for me (teaching art at the charter school) it felt like a really slow reading month for me. I still managed to finish […]

What I’ve Been Reading: July 2019

Hello there! Each month I share short and sweet book reviews of what I’ve been reading lately. July felt like a bit of a slog, to be honest.  While I finished ten books, and enjoyed most of them, I didn’t have any books that I just couldn’t put down. What un-putdownable book(s) have you read lately? If you’re a reader, […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately: June 2019

Hello there! Each month I share short and sweet book reviews of what I’ve been reading lately June was a great reading month for me, I crossed 10 books off my to-read list and loved almost all of them.   If you’re a reader, you may like my other book review posts.

My Summer Stack: Homeschool Mom Reading Guide for Summer 2019

Summer Reading Guide for Homeschool Moms I am a firm believer in the power of making plans.  Goals do not just happen; we must set aside the time, plan out the details, and then follow that plan.   Our family homeschools somewhat according to the Charlotte Mason method (we don’t follow her schedule exactly).  We use living, engaging books and short […]

What I’ve Been Reading: May 2019

Every month I share quick reviews of all the books I’ve finished.  This year I have a secret/somewhat ridiculous goal to read 100 books, and I’m happy to say I’m right on track. Actually, I’m a little bit ahead since I’ve read 41 books already this year.  Woohoo! I do not finish books I don’t like, so you can bet […]
