Homeschooler's Refreshment

Today begins the Carnival of Homeschooling for another week. This week's carnival is being hosted by Dana. There is a plethora of articles and blogs to visit. Here is the link:

Today also begins our family's school for the year, here in our New Town in Baltimore. (Yes, it is a play on words, as the section of our town is called New Town.) One nice thing about homeschooling is the stability. Even though it meets with obstacles along the way; still, there it is, the same students and teacher, whether in California or Ohio or Kentucky or Maryland.

This week I have "stumbled upon" three great books that I want to recommend:

Debt-Proof Your Marriage by Mary Hunt (for those who are not married, there is Debt-Proof Living). Put into practice, these principles will save you (financially, that is).

Home Sweet Home-School by Sue Maakestad. This is one homeschooling book that inspires, without being "preachy"!

Created for Work by Bob Schulz -- I received this one free with a book order for Teaching Textbooks (math) from Timberdoodle. I haven't finished reading Created for Work yet but what I've read of it looks very reader-friendly for our young men. Inspiration and instruction for boys about the value of work, maintenance, overcoming difficulties, and so on. Timberdoodle's website address is:

And now...to school! God bless you all.
