What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I love to hear from you!

As to the length of the homeschool day...this jumped out at me:
Everyday we're doing Bible, history and geography, science, math, writing/language arts, reading, a read-aloud book, spelling, and writing in a journal."

I think you'll find that most don't cover every subject every day. I know most PS do not either - especially in to the higher grades.

The only thing we do every day here is Bible, math & drill, spelling & phonics, writing, reading & PE. Everything else is done on either a twice a week or a three times a week schedule.

Having said that - if you are enjoying it & having fun & your children are still going strong - keep it up! ;-)

Oh yes, loving Guernsey. And I may have to read it twice. I feel like I should be highlighting more and I just keep getting caught up and forgetting to do it.

Also, I can't believe I totally missed your post about Settlers. As you may remember, we also love Seafarers of Catan which takes the original game and expands it across the water.

Love you and so glad it looks like you are having fun.

Lisa notes...

What a cute post. And thanks for the welcome to Memory Monday. I'm glad I found you.

Homeschool: The older my kids get, the longer THEIR homeschool day is, but the shorter it is for me. I try to do all our "together time" stuff first thing, then set them on their own for the rest of the day. They might come back to me for more explanations or help in the afternoon, but *I* am basically finished before lunch.

Of course that's not counting: grading papers, lesson plans, gathering books, cleaning up, etc. ;-) As you know, a homeschool "day" never really ends; it's a lifestyle. But a good one! Blessings on your week.

I have the Hawaii Cruiser from Electra too! Love Love Love it! Mine is teal and hot pink! Maybe when you return to CO we should take a cruise! I love the townie too and I had a hard time picking between the two.

Lol - I am normally a lurker but noticed you mentioned Sarah and Guernsey. I wondered if I had perhaps posted to tell you that i'm a reader of your blog who lives on the Island of Guernsey. But I now see you were talking to a friend. How funny...

Anyway you've prompted me to actually read the book. I bought it for my Mum for Christmas so can now 'borrow' it back. Thanks for the great blog!!
