Yes! As much as possible anyway. One of my favorite things about blogging is all the new friends I have made from all over the world through the blogging community.
What are your favorite blogs?
I am glad you asked, here are just a few. There are way too many to name, but if you are looking for more inspiration follow me on Facebook. I am always posting some favorite article, blog post, or book.
Will you write a post about _____?
I would love to answer your question! While I cannot guarantee that I will be able to get to every question or post idea, I will do my best. Feel free to email me with your ideas and questions.
How do you do it all?
Ha! I don’t! I say no to a lot of things to make room for what I love. We also have routines we do our best to stick to, the kids all have chores to do, we have certain times we do school work, and I have a schedule for all that as well. I am OK with messes and do not expect my home to be perfect, I also do not watch TV unless it is a family movie night, I get up early, and I really love writing, thinking, and reading. It is life to my soul to discuss these ideas and principles. After graduating from the CiRCE Apprenticeship, I knew I would have to work harder to keep a tight knit classical community. I am not willing to live without it! 🙂 Read more of my story here.
What curriculum do you use?
I follow the patterns laid out in the Short & Sweet Classical Homeschooling Guide. Interested in checking it out? You can download it for free here.
What are your favorite books?
Um… How many can I choose? If I was forced to make a selection I would say Beowulf, Tale of Two Cities, Plato’s Dialogues, and C.S. Lewis’ non-fiction works.
Will you review my book/curriculum/product?
I am happy to look at any curriculum. However, I will only recommend books, curriculum, and products which I am convinced really help with Christian Classical homeschooling.
Will you talk to me about solutions for my particular homeschool?
