Summer Ideas for the Kids

I read this article about some ideas to keep your sanity this summer. I don’t know why I never thought to create an outside bin for my kids but it is a great one! You can fill it with water guns, sidewalk chalk, kites, balls, or whatever else your children enjoy playing with outside.

Another idea was to gather those messy crafts into a bin and let them make those messes outside. :D

She even has ideas for snacks and how to organize them.

Well, that’s enough from me, except to say, if you hurry, you can enter the giveaway too. :) Click here to head over and read the article.

Until next time, keep cool, ;)

Help for Homeschool Moms

Sarah over at My Joy-Filled Life is hosting a month long series for helping homeschool moms. It appears that each day she or one of the blogger friends are posting a helpful post.

She also has a bunch of sponsors. The actual post links are below those sponsor links. I recommend scrolling past them for now and jumping right to the article links. (I think you can guess that I’m not affiliated with this at all. ;) )

I saw that there would also be some freebies and giveaways throughout the month. So, head on over and check it out. :)

Until next time, God bless,

Dandelions and Home Education

Dandeliions ~ Lifeofjoy.meMy father told me dandelions were weeds. I remember seeing him digging them out of the yard he had sodded. I didn’t understand why they were bad but Daddy didn’t like them, so neither did I.

Mom did not like them because it brought back sad memories of when she was a little girl. She knew things were tight financially when her mom would send her out to pick dandelion greens for dinner, which would be made into a gravy . . . a gravy Mom did not like.

Fast forward MANY, MANY years and I realized dandelions were just a wild flower. Sometimes it had the poor taste of growing in people’s well-manicured, lush green lawns. But I live way out in the country now and have grown to appreciate dandelions for what they are. :)

So when I saw the title of Sarah’s post over on her website, My Joy-Filled Life, I was intrigued. The title was “Discovering Dandelions“. I had to go see what she had to say on the topic. Knowing she is a homeschooler, piqued my interest all the more.

I love how she did not influence her children’s opinion of that ‘flower’ but instead allowed them to discover for themselves and make up their own minds. But she didn’t stop there. I encourage you to go read her article; it isn’t very long, so won’t take a lot of time.

Until next time, God bless,
