Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers: Making Curriculum Work for You: "It can be easy to allow yourself to become a slave to your homeschool curriculum or to waste time and money trying to find the perfect curri..."
I am so excited to share that Scottlyn and I just finished our first Beth Moore study together: DAVID Seeking God's Heart. This was a deep growing time we shared. We dug in weekly and discussed each section. Each week we were pulled closer to God and were able to share more as Mother and Daughter. This versions is written at a teenage level, I found the questions open and honest and not at all caught up in much of the drama of our world. Beth wrote it to deal with the heart issues, that if left unchecked can turn into uncontrolled behavior.
After each study we have done together, we pick out something that stuck with us and write it on a 3x5 card to display where we will see it daily. Here is what we picked:
Our God is a personal God that we can call our own:
- He is my strength when I am weak
- He is my rock when I am slipping
- He is my deliverer when I am trapped
- He is my fortress when I am crumbling
- He is my Refuge when I am pursed
- He is my Shield when I am exposed
- He is my Lord when life spins out of control
Next we are moving onto "Before you meet Prince Charming" by Sarah Mally. We are going to cover this over the next six weeks.

Starting in August, a few of Scottlyn's and Shalyn's friend came over to sew Regency Dresses together. They finished them last week and went to a local tea house for lunch in them. Here are a few pictures:
This year we are continuing on with The Mystery Of HIStory in Vol. II.
You can read about Vol. I, the beginning of the year here and the end of the year here.
We are continuing using the audio CD's, that make is so much easier on me. Why? you may ask, I have a hard time pronouncing words. I can get so stressed out about it.
This year a I went ahead and printted out all the timeline figures from Homeschool in the Woods.
We are using them for:
- School Room Time Line
- Personal Time Line book from Sunlight
- Timeline 3x5 cards
Also printed out and in a 3 ring binder is all the worksheets/ maps.
Having all of that printed out ahead of time, will bless our school year.
For our classroom timeline board, we used an Elmer's 40x60 Foam Board. Colored duck tape is used for the timeline line's.
Words can not express what a blessing our History time has become by using The Mystery of HIStory. If you haven't picked out your history program yet , I encourage you to give this a try. Thanks so much for visiting.
Growing in Christ,
