March is more than halfway over and I am already seriously thinking about next year's school. I've talked to lots of experienced homeschool moms about the ins and outs of home education, why they've chosen to do things certain ways, and gotten some tips about how to be a successful mom, teacher, wife, and housekeeper. (Simply put, several of them have said just hire a housekeeper. ;-) This year we started off using the Mother of Divine Grace kindergarten curriculum but (and I think I've mentioned this), we both got a little bored with it. Beth likes to do a lot of hands-on activities, and I want to take advantage of the way she learns and encourage her to love learning.
