We have changed homeschooling curriculum this year and I must say that I am LOVING it! We started out with ABeka and I liked it--it is a very good curriculum, but my daughter is a very artistic person and the worksheets were not her style!(much to my chagrin ;)) So, I started asking the Lord to help me find the perfect curriculum for All my children. After all they are His children! After nearly two months of pondering and praying a sweet friend of mine told me that she was going to use Sonlight and that I should look into it.
I went to Sonlight's websight and began the research. I fell in love. I love the Charlotte Mason idea of teaching, however, my personality requires more structure! ;) And Sonlight happened to have both! I knew that the Lord had plopped this in my lap! He is SOOOO wonderful, all we need to do is ask for His help and guidance and He will give it! I am so thankful to have been chosen by you Father, thank you Jesus for dying for me!
So, since I changed to a curriculum that embraces a Charlotte Mason type learning, that means that I am more involved than before, because I am reading a.lot. to them!!! This is also another answer to prayer! I am spending more quality time with my children doing something we all enjoy, reading! Before this I felt as though I wasn't able to spend quality time with all three kids like I should be, because I am not the playful type! My imagination is VERY lacking! But, with reading, everyone's needs are being met! Thank you again Lord! See, serving Him is absolutely the ONLY way! God bless!
