Praise and Worship in the Home School

What a sigh of relief! I was just trying to sing with my kids yesterday during Bible time and either we couldn’t find the right key or didn’t know all the words or any number of distractions. I can’t wait for Bible time tomorrow, armed with these great resources!.

Walking Back Through Time

After our last living history fieldtrip, we were blessed to be able to visit some more living sites that we have read about in our Island Story! One was quite enlightening!

Winter Nature Study in Poetry Park

A nature study for children can be a rewarding and educational pastime. It can help them understand science better. A nature study for children can help children understand their surroundings and learn to be observant. Nature poems for kids and nature study activities are an important part of nature activities for children. Nature studies can be used in homeschools, classrooms, by parents after school or by club or camp counselors. 

It's time for winter nature study in Poetry Park...

Nature Hour Garden Flowers

Nature Hour Garden Flowers

I enjoy gardening and wanted to share it with my kids.  Why?  Well, it gives them a connection to nature and where their food comes from.   It’s another chance to teach a little work ethic and responsibility and the rewards that come with following through.  Then there are the science lessons learned in the real world with a hands-on activity that is a lifelong interest for many people.

Charlotte in Her Wisdom

Connie Strain is a 90-year-old who has goals and wisdom. Connie lives in Ballantyne with her daughter Pam Sutton.
When asked for advice about longevity, Connie had a few things to say: “Do not waste your time with worry,” she said. “If you can fix something, do; if not, don’t worry about it.
“To be healthy is to be happy. Keep going and stay on your feet, and eat right.”
Strain said she has two goals: to be 91, and to increase her walking to 2 miles at a time.
Connie Strain, born in 1924, lived in Woodcliff Lake, N.J., until she was 4, when her family moved to Staten Island, N.Y.
