My teen began lettering onto paper this Summer, and her interest sparked my own again. I used to sit bored in class, writing the alphabet and my name and future baby names (Brenden Schaad and Brittany Annelie - both partially used on future babies, and Savannah - not used at all). Lettering is easy because any scrawl is art. I like to write the alphabet in caps and in lowercase in different fonts that I think up. If I like a font, I combine letters to make simple words like "no" and "home", to connect the font and see how it looks. Then I write full quotes or phrases. Honestly, it is easy. It will look wonderful. And you'll feel more relaxed because of it. Try! Continue reading

I have had to become very familiar with the SAT and ACT in the past year, as we prepared our eldest for college (our homeschooled kid is a freshman psychology major now!). In searching for, first of all, what exactly... Continue reading

Hang in there. Flowers are still blooming, butterflies are still dancing, kittens are still cute, toddlers are still giggling. The world's evil will not be able to stop beauty from shining through. It's difficult to hide light. Seek the light. And let your light shine. Continue reading

Thank you for letting me know! It looks like they may have moved that portion of their site. I can't find where it is relocated, but I was able to get them to come up by using the Search box. In the Search box (top right of their site), put "Salsa" and you'll get search results for the lessons. I'm sorry I can't give you a direct link to the results - the way they have it set up, I can't get the link. I was able to retrieve one of the links: https://edu.wyoming.gov/downloads/standards/Salsa_Episode_2.pdf Change the "2" to another number to see a different episode. I hope this work-around helps; I'll continue to try to find where they moved the Salsa lessons! Thanks again, Lori Seaborg proving a high quality education can be for all: http://FreelyEducate.com

It's a good morning when it begins with coffee, wool, a book, and a kid nearby to hear a passage read aloud. From the passage: "You can only make one person - you - the most wondrous, the most remarkable, the most open, the most beautiful, the most creative person in the world. Not to store it away, but to give it away because you can only give to others what you have. If I do anything for me, I do it for you." (from Living, Loving, Learning by Buscaglia) Continue reading

Hi, fatemeh! To me, the quote means that in order to see beauty, we must be alone sometimes.

I'm pretty much a wreck lately. I'm trying not to be, and sometimes I'm not, and usually I don't look like I am...but I'm pretty much a wreck. In 1995 he stole my heart. Then in 1997, she taught me that you don't split love in half when you have a second child - you double it. In 2000, he stole my heart by being the surprise baby only God knew we needed. And in 2003, she proved that love can quadruple. Now, it's time for the big one, the 1995 kid, to head off to college nearly 200 miles from home and I'm all kinds of wow, this is exciting no, it's really not it'll be fun! care packages! I'll miss our random conversations I'm so happy for him I'm...sad he's God's kid, not mine hang on, I have something in my eye It's just that all I ever really wanted, since my Barbie Doll days, is this, this beautiful family and their beautiful childhood. I really do want his childhood to end because I really do want him to chase his dreams; I really can't wait to see what he does with his super smart brain and super... Continue reading
