For such a short month, February was jam-packed! Elizabeth got her 4H goat, we did our Trail Life and AHG Pinewood Derby, wrapped up our Junior Historians projects, and stayed busy with a variety of events and activities.
On a personal note, I finished reading two more books! Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson was a great read. Sarah shares her thoughts and ideas about reading, it’s importance and how it affects our lives. She also includes many wonderful book lists for various purposes. For example, one list is “Biographies: The Real-Life Epics That Shaped My Dreams”. Another list was “Novels of Eucatastrophe: The Fantastical Stories That Taught Me to Hope”. While I honestly do not think that I will ever read all of the books on her lists, reading Book Girl gave me a renewed passion for reading and lots of good ideas for new books to add to my growing list of books to read.

I also finished Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely by Lysa Terkeurst. In this world full of social media, busy schedules, and high expectations, I think many of us have felt ‘uninvited’ at one point or another. This book shares great insight and Biblical perspective to help us heal and overcome and also to help us look at how our own actions are effecting our lives and friendships.
You can expect to see at least new reviews in March. The first one, Victus Study Skills System, has already posted. I will also be sharing about Homeschool Complete, Drive Thru History, and more. So many exciting products and we are having a blast trying them all out.
I also have a couple of fun field trips planned that I look forward to sharing with you including a fun nature center and planetarium. We also celebrated my youngest son’s first birthday on Dr. Seuss’s birthday (a week late for my son but when we could work it in the schedule) and I will share all of the fun theme ideas we used for his party.
Pi Day and St. Patrick’s Day are coming up soon. They are always great fun to celebrate and add a little fun to our school day. Make sure to check out those blog posts from last year full of ideas to help you cerebrate. I am also working on a great post about fun books to reinforce math skills that will be perfect for Pi day!
I have been busy testing out new quick and easy, low GI breakfast ideas based on your various ideas and recommendations. I look forward to sharing with you what worked for, what didn’t, and how I adapted a few things to make them work for our family. I have found some yummy ideas and think we are making head way in getting our mornings back on track.
March seems to be shaping up to be just as full as February. We started our online book study of Girls’ Club: Cultivating Lasting Friendships in a Lonely World, but it is not too late to jump in and join us. I would love to have you follow me over at Pinterest. I am just getting started but enjoying sharing posts and other ideas there. What is happening at your house this month?
