This past year I have been on a journey.  Learning about other styles of learning.  When we began homeschooling 5 years ago I bought the Abeka Academy DVDs. They were a great fit.  Our daughter loved watching and learning.  That lasted until about 1/2 way through Kindergarten.   When my preschool son began the videos he hated it.  Everyday was hard.  But we kept going.  After lots of research I began to learn more about classical education.   I loved the idea!    

Lately, we read lots, and lots of books.  I devour the Charlotte Mason blogs.  I am always on the lookout for books and book lists.  I let the kids read what they want ( within reason ). We still use the Abeka readers, arithmetic, history, science, and health. I don't have it all figured out but I have loosened up very much.  The kids are enjoying learning.  Our day is not perfect and we still have our moments. I just want to encourage moms!  You can home school and you can enjoy it!!

A book that was a real blessing was Debi Pearl's // Big Book Of Homeschooling //
I will try to share some books we have enjoyed.  In the meantime google classical reading list by grade.  You will find lots of great ideas.
