Fantastic Homeschool/Children’s Book Giveaway!

I LOVE Biblical science, and her upcoming release is Adam’s Animals – Fun Facts about God’s Creation, a children’s activity book that features more than 40 animals mentioned in the Bible and little-known facts about each! I am going to get this entire collection for my 5 & 7 year-old sons.

Kimberly is also giving away a copy of Trees of the Book – Learning from God’s Creation ( http://amzn.to/1hoCogt ) to one commenter on this post! Thank you, Kimberly!…

Shifts and Changes

I am excited to get Hallee the Homemaker back up to what it was before I took a (desperately needed) semi-break. The ideas for posts just come and come — I simply haven’t had the time to actually focus and concentrate and put things together. If we can get me through the summer months (where my “free” time will have to continue to be spent focusing on the next book coming out rather than blogging) then we’ll be back up and rolling!

Decisions

He went home that night pondering the school and started praying about it. He felt very very pressed that we should put the boys there instead of homeschooling them. The more he prayed about it, the more he felt like that was the right decision.

Finally Worked it All Out

I’m a busy person. I tend to have several irons in the fire simultaneously. I’m great at multitasking and quite capable of juggling. However, I realize that if I want to homeschool the boys, I need to be able to stop everything around me, end the outside distractions, and just teach. This is my trial year. Scott just turned 5 and we are “Redshirting” him – so we’re going to work with a 4K program. If I can do it full time this year, then we know we’ll be able to continue doing it. If not, then we need look at our other options.

Redshirting

Redshirting is holding your school-aged child back an extra year, and starting them in kindergarten at the age of 6 (or first grade at the age of 7). I was bouncing around the idea of writing a post about it and tried to look up the etymology of the term and came across two interesting things: (1) the term “redshirting” as far as I can tell, has its history in sports and something to do with Freshmen wearing red shirts, and (2) there is a MAJOR criticism in the world out there for people who choose to redshirt. Typically, the criticism came from people who have a different world view than I, so I decided no more bouncing around with an idea — I’ll go ahead and write it. :-)

A New Experience

Our church has an awesome preschool through elementary school. I checked into it to know what my options were and discovered that they have a part time program on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. But the more we looked at that option, the less we liked it. I home school preschool, and we have invested a lot of time, prayer, and money into building our preschool curriculum. Consequently, I didn’t want them in a preschool environment two days a week on top of what we were doing at home. That would seem counter-productive.
