Beyond the Refrigerator

Conundrum: How do I teach art to a multi-aged class…especially if I am not artistically inclined myself? Is there a creative way to display art instead of the traditional refrigerator door?

Solution: Make an art wall collage!

My professional artist friend shared with me the fun idea of making an art collage as a wall display.  

First Things First

To modify a phrase by the acclaimed Russian author, Leo Tolstoy: All happy families are alike; each homeschooling family is homeschooling in its own way. It’s true, right? No two homeschools are exactly alike. Some families thrive with routines and structure; other families are free-spirited and casual. Regardless of how one arranges the day, each homeschooling family should be alike in this: all of us must follow Missouri home education statutes.  

Farewell Summer

I am going to miss the dog days of summer: relaxed mornings, impromptu trips to the pool, old movies, and good books. Our family has enjoyed the Mid-Continent Summer Reading Program and checked out several old movies. We had forgotten how much we enjoyed TinTin. I’m not longing to return to the routine of school. Alas, it is time to get back to business. After all, routine is a good thing, right? Fortunately, as a homeschool family, we enjoy flexibility. We are going to ease into school. Schedules are great, but routines work best for our family.
