Interrupting Chicken

A Book Review By Landen This is Landen’s book review of the book Interrupting Chicken, by David Ezra Stein (40 pages, 2016) *Parent’s note – This book is true to fashion, the little guy wants a bedtime story, gets one… interrupts, gets another… interrupts and it ends with dad asleep before his son!

Pirate Girl Book Review

A Book Review by Emmy This is Emmy’s book review for the book Pirate Girl, by Cornelia Funke (32 pages, 2005) *Parents note- The book Pirate Girl brings the concept of pirates to girls but does start with a girl getting kidnapped by pirates. My daughter thought it was both sad for a bit, then happy at the end, and enjoyed the Pirate theme. My only wish, and this is me being a bit feminist I guess, is that Molly would have done more to help her situation, rather then wait…

Homeschooling Pre-K thru 2nd Grade

Homeschooling your Pre-K thru Second Grader I think the question I am asked most about homeschooling is, “What do you use (curriculum) to teach your kids?” and I find as I explain the answer to most non-homeschooling people, their eyes start to glaze over. However, to those interested, it is an honest question and so I decided to post about my homeschooling pre-K thru 2nd grade “curriculum”. First a little background into our Pre-K story. Kindergarten once was the preparation for starting school and now, in an effort to get ahead, pre-school…

This is a great bedtime story for little ones and the illustrations are very sweet.

I told my kids the truth about Santa

Yup, I told my kids the truth about Santa! I can just see the hate mail now but it’s true, the weekend before Thanksgiving, I told my kids the truth about Santa, and really it was a long time coming! Honestly, I had never wanted to go the Santa route, because it felt like a lie and as a Christian it bothered me, but my husband talked me into it, and after years of watching my children and other children obsess over Santa, I decided to tell my kids, who…
