The Annotated Christmas Book List for Families

True confession: When my two oldest kids were little, I read aloud to them three to five hours every day. (Well, some of it was devotions and bedtime stories with their daddy too.) My husband worked twelve to thirteen hour days, and I had several small children.  So I read.  And read.  And read.

Introducing Meaningful Composition 2-II

I am slowly getting the videos up that go with the samples at the store. Each MC book has two weeks of completely free lessons (in their entirely..not bits and pieces). And each book will eventually have a video that explains that book’s contents and the two free sample weeks.

Wanna stay close to your kids? Of course!

We all want to. But sometimes our “want to’s” do not become our actual “do’s.”

Keeping close to our children is something that we must plan for and put on our calendars just like appointments.
