|Music is something that we enjoy and try to work on. It is a fun way to praise God!|
|Science can happen anytime. What fun when we had a butterfly visit out of season|
and we were able to take the time to learn about it and it's habits.
I think it is very important to realize what is truly important to your family because sometimes in the hustle and bustle of homeschool life we can get caught up in trying to get a bunch of workbooks done and the parents are stressed, the kids are worn out and you haven't even focused on the things that are important to you. When I really thought through what we wanted for our kids I started spending a lot more time sharing God's word with them and we lightened up on the workbooks.
|We love interesting books about science (not textbooks or workbooks so much.)|
they go on through life.

Another thing that I think it really important is having a lot of good books. Well written, fun to read but educational books. There are a lot out there but there is also a lot of rubbish and then just boring, dry textbooks too. Have GOOD books for your kids to read!
I hope to write more about this topic later but I guess this will do for now. :-) I would love to hear any homeschooling tips that you might have!
