Dear Reader,

Hello! Welcome to another homeschooling newsletter.

Have you ever read a passage in a book that really stuck out to you? Something that struck a chord enough that you copied it or perhaps highlighted it? Lately I've been contemplating the curriculum I purchased for the kids this year and how it's just not working. I'm not surprised we haven't managed to find a packaged program that has worked yet. I'm sure this isn't a situation unique to my family. As I was flipping through some of my resource books I came across some quotes that spoke to me. I've decided to share some of my favorites with you. I hope you find them enlightening and inspiring!

Thank you all for the well wishes for my bee stung 3 year old! She has fully recovered. As for the skeleton, so many people asked what it was. We are now fairly certain it was the hunting discards of a deer. There are signs that the meat was stripped away using a serrated knife. While the kids found no more of the deer they did find some jaw bones of what my husband believes was a ferral hog.

I hope this newsletter find you well and having fun in your homeschool journey!

Are you looking for something online but you're not quite sure what?
Over the past year I've undertaken the task of organizing my bookmarks, so anything I saw online that looked neat had it's own place on my computer. The problem, my bookmarks kept erasing themselves with every computer update, a major nuisance.

I finally put them all up on Backflip, a really neat online tool.

So, whether you are looking for online educational games, lesson plans, free math programs or phonics programs (or anything else!) take a gander at my links and save yourself some search time.
