The Cheapest Way to Educate Yourself in 2015


 
I love to be challenged and equipped in my roles as a wife, mother, homemaker, homeschooler and any other role I fill and over the last several years Homemaking Bundle done just that.

It is the ONE resource that I would be willing to spend my money on year after year. It's incredibly economical and I don't have to leave home to learn new things or to take classes. In fact, thanks to one of the bonuses included in this year's bundle, I can take a class. For FREE. In my own home. (I'd love to tell you which one, but mum's the word until April 20--sorry!)

How I Helped My 5 Year Old Finally Hold a Pencil Correctly


For some reason, my 5 year old just hasn't been able to get a handle on a correct pencil hold position. No matter how many times I have shown him the correct way to hold a pencil, he would always revert back to his habit of holding it incorrectly.

You may wonder why on earth I cared so much about a pencil hold. After all, if he could write his letters, who cares how he is holding his pencil.

Be Yourself and the World Will Be a More Beautiful Place

 
Today I'm participating in the ABCs of Homeschooling series over at My Joy Filled Life. I chose to write about a topic that has been so crucial to me over this past year. Please join me today as I share about learning to embrace our personality, preferences and teaching styles when it comes to homeschooling our children.
 
One of the secrets to finding joy in our homeschooling is embracing how God created us and capitalizing on those strengths rather than trying to homeschool the way someone else does. Please join me today as I share about Being Yourself in your homeschooling.

Our Peanut Allergy Update---Feeling Relieved

That last time I wrote about our OIT journey I was feeling a bit discouraged. Thankfully, we're on the other side of that hump now so I'm feeling better. Looking back, we realized that most of the difficulties we were experiencing were due to repeated illnesses. The doctor said it's certainly common during this time of year. I asked if it will be like this for the rest of his life every time he gets sick but he assured me that the longer he is on maintenance dosing, the more immunological changes will continue to take place. Basically, his body should get more and more used to the allergen and hopefully he won't have as many reactions down the road when he gets sick.

"Kick a Cold" Tea



My youngest and I have been battling a nasty cold for the past week and to help keep it from settling into my lungs or turning into a sinus infection like colds normally do for me, I've been drinking my "Kick a Cold" tea daily (and sometimes more than once a day).

It's pretty simple, really, but the ingredients pack a powerful punch. If I feel the congestion starting to mount or the tickle in my throat coming back, I try to make another cup of this tea and it is definitely helping to manage my symptoms.
