Holly Hobbie Returns

By Teresa / April 30, 2012 / 2 Comments

I had been looking for a bed setting and curtains for Hosanna’s room without much success. I wasn’t wanting to spend a fortune and I wasn’t keen on anything I had come across that fit within my budget. I like sweet girly things for little girls and I’m a big fan of vintage bits and […]

Little Isaiah is into saying to family members that they’re the best at something or other. It might be, ‘Dad, you’re the best dad in the whole world!’ or something else along those lovely lines. So the other day, I got to be the best at something. I was lovingly told that I’m the best […]

I had chosen ‘Animal’s And Their Worlds’, a Winterpromise program to start with, however, the materials didn’t come when required so I ran with my own program for the remainder of the year.

Prayer Journalling

By Teresa / March 29, 2012 / 0 Comments

I had recently been checking out some homeschooling blogs when I came accross www.charlottemasonhelp.com. I was looking into the Charlotte Mason Homeschooling approach and was quite inspired by many of the ideas and suggested resources. In particular, I loved their prayer journalling routine.

By Teresa / January 27, 2012 / 2 Comments

Here is our latest teepee addition, Isaiah’s teepee. He loves it. It’s basically the same as Noah’s but with green polka dot trim and a little bit of extra detailing. I’m very happy with how my teepees have turned out. The boys have been begging me for a sleep in their teepees so over a […]
