I used to think reading was reading and it was great to see a book in our children’s hand, regardless of what they were consuming. Boy, was I wrong! It’s appalling to see the content in some of these books. As for our house, we stick to the living books that are full of wholesome feasts for our children to digest.
"I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." -Laura Ingalls Wilder I keep getting the question of what curriculum we will be using for each of our children. We've been full force into our year for a few weeks now but I've intentionally not shared our curriculum choices for so many reasons. One tip I've learned over the years is to just enjoy our children every day. This year I'll be stressing less on curriculum choices and focusing more on just being present and enjoying the simple life. Laura Ingalls had it right when she said "it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." As many of you head into your school year this week and weeks to come, I urge you to do the same. Enjoy those sweet moments of reading good books during your read aloud time and holding them close.
