Dear Reader,

Hello! I know it's been a while since I sent out a real newsletter! As usual, life happens! My already on the big side family is going to be larger with the addition of child #5 this fall :) I can hardly believe it myself! Having two young children certainly puts a damper on my homeschool expectations for my two older children. It seems that just when we get back into the groove another blessing comes along.

Due to the time constraints of homeschooling, managing a career from home, being a wife and homemaker and being a mother, I have devised a series of Mini-Lesson Plans. What is a MLP? Simply put, a MLP is a mini-unit study that can be completed in under an hour a day. MLPs are very flexible, you can spend a day or a week on them. You can devote 15 minutes a day or an hour. You can split the work up into shorter periods throughout the day. MLPs are geared to a general late elementary/early middle school age, however I include extra ideas for older children. If you are teaching younger children you can pretty much leave the lesson plan alone, helping them to read and write as necessary.

This week I am releasing my first MLP, a primer to healthy eating. I hope you enjoy the lesson plan and it's uncomplicated layout. Feedback is welcome!

If you don't hear from me over the next few weeks or see new articles it's because we're leaving warm Florida and starting a new life in what I hope is sunny and warm northern Georgia!
