Helpful Habit: Meanwhile, I practiced the habit of continuing education. The stack of books above includes: When You Rise Up: A Covenantal Approach to Homeschooling by R.C. Sproul, Jr. and Setting the Records Straight by Lee Binz, Educating the Whole-Hearted Child by Clay and Sally Clarkson.
Plus, an IKEA and Lands End Kids catalog, and Southern Living, Better Homes & Gardens, Old Schoolhouse magazines.
And, yesterday, I posted a review of Cindy West’s review of Loving Living Math. Homeschool mamas – this is for you! I’ve looked forward to sharing this with you. Hope you’ll click over and join me.
Be sure to join in and see what other homeschoolers are up to at Kris’ Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
Do you make it a habit of continuing education for yourself, as the homeschool parent? What’s on your coffee table?
