Christmas Greetings

May God bless you as you plan for 2014!

I celebrate with you the joy of Jesus' birth, and all the family traditions and memories that are built around the Christmas season. May God's Spirit give you wisdom as you plan into 2014.

As I look back on 14 years of homeschooling, its no secret that the years I was well-planned went much smoother than others. One of the best things I learned, was to make a lesson schedule booklet for each child so they were in charge of their daily schedule and didn't rely on me for minute by minute direction. This made things much easier when one subject was completed and I was busy with another child. I hope you enjoy our December ideas below.
