You Know Your Kid is a Pastor's Kid...

...when her make believe time consists of playing "church," teaching Sunday School, and pretending to cook food to serve to people that are coming over for lunch after church.

  1. Now I wonder which one that could be!

  2. Hi Celeste, thanks for stopping by! I love how your girls play church, that sounds like April, Danielle and me when we were kids. Way back in the day when our dad was a Baptist preacher, we'd "baptize" each other in the bathtub and kiddie swimming pool.

    Some sites I've been reading on homeschooling are http://simplehomeschool.net/ they have a couple of posts explaining the different methods http://simplehomeschool.net/educational-philosophies-defined-part-i/ and also http://simplehomeschool.net/educational-philosophies-defined-part-ii/

    A great resource for curriculum reviews is http://www.cathyduffyreviews.com/ I really recommend seeing if your library has Cathy Duffy's book "100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum". It was really helpful for me. It not only has curriculum reviews but talks about the different methods and even tips on how to figure out your child's individual learning style and what methods best fit her.

    Another site I use for curriculum reviews is http://www.homeschoolreviews.com/ and is made up of reviews left by parents who have actually used the curriculum. The only trouble is, it seems like no matter what curriculum it is, half the parents love it and rave about it and half of them hate it, haha.

    I do recommend going to a homeschool book fair if there are any in your area. It is absolutely overwhelming because there are SO MANY choices, but it is really nice to actually look through books and see them in person.

    I started a notebook so I could jot down things I loved or what I wanted to look into further and now I have it all in one place.

    I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask and I'll answer the best I can.
