Prayer Journalling

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. I must confess that my prayer/Bible reading time has seriously deteriorated with the…

Vacswim fun

This past January, I booked Noah into a two week Vacswim session down at Doddies Beach, Mandurah. It’s amazing value at $1/day for swimming instruction. If you do the Vacswim at a swimming centre you need to add the cost of the pool entry as well. We were keen on the beach option since we…

The illustrations are full of detail…

Compliments for Mum

Isaiah, my three year old, has recently showered me with some lovely compliments. The other day when I was putting together the boys bunk bed he tells me, “Mum, you’re a genius!” I loved hearing that! I’m not sure where he’s learnt the word genius from but he can tell me I’m a genius any…

On Choosing Modern Cloth Nappies

I have been using Modern Cloth Nappies (MCN) for about 15 months now and am very pleased with my switch. I really hadn’t thought at all about using cloth nappies for my first two children. I didn’t even really know about them or know anyone who used them. My first introduction to MCNs was when…
