August 2015

The end of summer always brings preparation for the new school year. This year I decided to continue teaching using classical methods, but using a different curriculum. I chose to try out Classical Conversations. In the past I have purchased a few of their products to use along with our curriculum, but we hadn’t used their […]

July 2015

July was spend enjoying summer and diving into my new role as the Children’s Director. I spent a lot of hours researching what was best for our church and how to implement ideas and planning and helping out at block parties.   We also discovered a spring fed pool not too far from us. The […]

Our Disney World trip…more so the person who simplified our trip

I haven’t yet completely blogged about our trip to Disney World.  Perhaps I am still reliving the amazing trip we had, or maybe I miss it too much.  Either way, it will get done, but not today. Today I am going to tell you about Kellie Gray from Mousehunter Travels.   First of all, before I begin, […]
