Easter Ideas For Kids

Easter is a month away, and I’ve already started planning our Ten Days of Easter activities for the girls. One thing I’ve noticed in my browsing is that it’s challenging to find Jesus-focused Easter activities. Ironic, right? Because the shops are filled with bunnies and chicks and eggs, I’m determined to do crafts and activities …

The Big Book Of Homeschool Ideas

I was given copies of The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas Volume 1 and Volume 2 in exchange for an honest review. This post contains affiliate links.

The baby is either fast asleep in his cot, or kicking happily on his playmat. Mom sips her hot tea, smiling adoringly at her children. Ja. …

Yes, We Will Be Homeschooling

Both my girls are at preschool this year; Angie in grade 00 and Emmy in the toddler class. Their school opened last Tuesday, so we’ve had just over a full week of the “getting ready for school” morning chaos. Today was particularly insane. Emmy woke up at 5am when I tried to sneak out of …

To Home School, Or Not? That Is The Question

Angie will be in grade 00 next year, which means that before we know it, she’ll start grade one. It’s probably time to get serious about making decisions regarding schooling. She is not on any waiting lists, though there’s no way we could afford private schooling anyway. There are several good government primary schools in …
