10 Posts From the Past
Not everyone uses Facebook and with the way Facebook works now, the majority of my readers don’t see what I post to Facebook. So, I thought that I’d highlight some of my older posts here on the blog as well every now and then.

11 Year Old Shares Her Thoughts About Homeschooling
Last winter on a snowy day like this one, I shared this post written by my friend’s daughter. Hope you enjoy!
You may be interested in reading her Mom’s thoughts about balancing homeschooling with working outside the home. This is a post from last year by my friend — an amazing woman who is currently not only working her normal job, but is also teaching a university class and homeschools her kids! (And somehow squeezes in time to chat with me on the phone!) How does she do it? Here was last year’s post:
Animal Portfolio Project – My daughter loves animals. Last year, I created this portfolio project so she could choose all kinds of projects relating to animals — art, writing, research, geography and more! She *loved* doing this!! Hope someone else can use this! It’s free to download.
Phases of the Moon Activity (for ages 4-7 or so) We had a lot of fun when we did this activity several years ago. We even tried out a recipe for homemade Oreos. (Note to self — We need to make these again!!)

Have a wonderful day! ~Liesl
