Arranged relationships, inanimate toys, and my favorite homeschooling book so far {Quicklit – August Reads}

Non-Fiction: The Brave Learner: Finding Everyday Magic in Homeschool, Learning, and Life by Julie Bogart - 5 stars. So helpful and practical. I love how she described the way not adhering to any one method of homeschooling really freed up her family to thrive. I also loved her idea to keep a list of what … Continue reading Arranged relationships, inanimate toys, and my favorite homeschooling book so far {Quicklit – August Reads}

Summer Reading – Am I Doing it Wrong? {July QuickLit}

July was a weird month of reading. I listened to a couple audiobooks while ferrying the kids back and forth to VBS. Three hours of VBS is not really long enough when it takes 25 minutes to get to church. The audiobooks helped it to be more enjoyable instead of feeling like wasting alone minutes … Continue reading Summer Reading – Am I Doing it Wrong? {July QuickLit}

How to read a riveting series. {June Quicklit}

Put the whole series on hold at the library. Wait until they all show up. Read them as quickly as you can. This is what I should have done with the Charlotte Holmes series. So let me say it again: Make sure you have them all on hand. I read a lot this month, but … Continue reading How to read a riveting series. {June Quicklit}

At the coast and otherwise {QuickLit – May}

Ideal, yes? Somehow I always imagine reading on the beach to be a great idea and I always have great plans to read on the sand when we go there. Between wind and rain and children quite willing to douse themselves (irrespective of their swimmings skills) in the chilly waves, it doesn't really work in … Continue reading At the coast and otherwise {QuickLit – May}

All about those YA series and creativity books {QuickLit – April}

I expected to read so much less than I did last mont, but I still read 13 books. I blame it on these YA series bookending the beginning and end of my reading month. I'm so glad I had all the books in the series when I started. It made it easy to know exactly … Continue reading All about those YA series and creativity books {QuickLit – April}

In Which I Read the Library {Quick Lit – March ’19}

I'm pretty sure this is more books than I've read in a month since being a grown-up with responsibilities. I think I managed to do what I needed to, but most other extra-curricular activities took a back-seat to getting through all of these. Here's what I read and what I thought! If you need a … Continue reading In Which I Read the Library {Quick Lit – March ’19}

Forced to quit my reading streak {Quick Lit -January}

I finished a book a day the first 10 days of January it was so much fun and all I did was read. It perfectly coincided with the kids' well-timed post christmas season illness so we didn't even have to go anywhere expect to buy tissues and cough syrup. But than I got to day … Continue reading Forced to quit my reading streak {Quick Lit -January}

December Reads {QuickLit}

I spent most of December madly crocheting stuffed animals and then recovering from said madness. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. I had a numb spot on my thumb for weeks from crocheting with such intensity. But the animals turned out adorable and all the children who received one were immediately in love. So it was … Continue reading December Reads {QuickLit}
