Sometimes our children are tempted to give up when things get hard, or when something is taking too long, or things are not working out the way they had planned (or insert any other difficulty here). Here are some incredible stories of children (and adults) who did not give up when faced with difficulties.
Here are some of my favorite preschool programs. Do I think a preschool program is necessary? No, I don’t. Read, play, read some more, go outside (probably one of the most important things you can do), and above all, point your child to Jesus. Don’t be over-eager to push academics. You can never redo these days.
I wanted to introduce you to one of our favorite vintage children’s books, We Were Tired of Living in a House by Liesel Moak Skorpen. This book is about a group of children who decide to leave their home in search of a new place to live. They try out a tree, a cave, a pond, the seashore, and then, after a series of mishaps, eventually decide to move back home. This is one book that I don’t mind reading over and over, which is a good thing because my little girl loves to hear it.
Here are some KJV ABC Scripture Memory Cards I made for my daughter. The cards are also available in NKJV. We have long used and loved the ABC Scripture Set from Scripture Memory Fellowship. This summer when my boys were working on the Bible Bee, my little girl wanted flash cards like her brother, so I made these cards (after asking permission) with the verses in the ABC set.
If you need to keep record of the days you do school throughout the year, these cute school attendance calendars are an easy way to do that.
Here’s and Aldi meal plan including seven Aldi dinners recipes for a large family. We have seven in our family including three teens and one tween (and a toddler) so we go through a lot of food. If you have all young kids, you might be able to feed more.
To be a lifegiving parent you need the life of Christ within you. Many parenting books focus on technique or methods of discipline. By contrast, Clay and Sally Clarkson’s new book focuses on the kind of parent you need to be to pass on the life of God to our children — hence the title — The Lifegiving Parent.
I made these Complete-a-Dot Printable Activities for my daughter a while ago and am only now getting them up on my blog. My little girl loved matching the stickers to the right colors.
These Complete-a-Dot printable activity pages are meant to be used with three-quarter inch office labels. I bought some at the dollar store, or you could buy them on Amazon. You could also use Do a Dot markers.
Here’s a Free April Nature Calendar. I hope you enjoy these ideas to interact with nature.
We still have quite a bit of snow on the ground, but we know spring is just around the corner.
We’ve been making maple syrup. I owe a huge thanks
I wasn’t sure I was going to make a March Nature Day by Day calendar, but a reader left a comment on my February calendar that made me think some of you might be missing the March one if I didn’t make it. I was in a bit of a hurry so I made it on the computer and used clip art, but I think it turned out lovely.
