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}

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}

Worth all the library holds – {February QuickLit}

Last month's reading surprised me. It shouldn't have, but it did. And that will be surprising to some and not surprising at all to others. Here's what happened. At the end of January I pulled together a pile of books to read for Black History Month. I wanted to only read books by black authors … Continue reading Worth all the library holds – {February QuickLit}

Magic, Quarters, and Good Enough {What I’ve learned – Winter 2018}

1. Library favoritism is perfectly acceptable. The old library is the best library. We've tried two new to us library locations this month and they've been charming for different reasons, but I still have a favorite. The kids may not agree, but I drive the car. 2. Trying to combine habits is hard. At separate … Continue reading Magic, Quarters, and Good Enough {What I’ve learned – Winter 2018}

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}

The Color of Life by Cara Meredith {Review}

The Color of Life: A Journey Toward Love and Racial Justice by Cara Meredith is an invitation to think and learn about racial justice, but it's also a story of falling in love, becoming family, coming alive to history and justice issues, and seeking that justice-driven redemption story that is critical for all of our whole and full lives. I loved reading … Continue reading The Color of Life by Cara Meredith {Review}

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}
