Daily Class Chart for homeschooling

>> Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I wish I could find my camera cord... you know -- the one that loads the pictures onto the computer? It is SOMEWHERE amongst all the half-unpacked boxes and school supplies!

I have been putting off this post because I wanted to show you the picture, but, alas, it was not to be....

The picture was of my Daily Classes Chart for homeschooling. See, I am VERY visual. AND I "fell off" my lesson plan "train" last year because I misplaced my planning book ( we were remodeling and living half time in OUR house, half time in my IN-LAWS house! It's a wonder I could find ANYTHING).

So I devised a hang-on-the-wall chart that would list EVERY day, poem, verse, or lesson that I wanted to accomplish during the span of the school year. There is a box for each one that the boys can put stickers in. No losing the plan. I see it everyday so I remember to actually do school! And the boys LOVE putting the stickers on it! We use foil star stickers, you know the kind the Sunday school teacher had when you were little.

I made mine by hand..
.it took me HOURS....
then kicked myself when I realized I could have done it on
MY DRAFTING PROGRAM!!!!!

So I did make one up on the computer, while the inspiration was fresh.

Next year, all I have to do is print off what I need, tape the pieces together, and fill in the blanks.

Much more simple!

I thought I would share the chart.


The part with the long lines is where you put the class name. Tape as many of the just-squares pages as you need for your lessons. Label your classes. Number your squares. If you don't want the chart to be that long, let your numbering extend to the second line and leave the class line blank (that is what I did on my hand-made one).

This was so useful for me as it allowed me to SEE what we needed to get done this year!

sometimes I forget that I am so far away from what the world considers "normal"

"Science had long since disproven the beliefs that men used to make the rules we call religion."

-- From a conversion with my pharmacist about the abortive effects of some birth control methods.

Apparently I needed to be told that these birth control methods are not stopping "life", only "potential life".

It makes me nauseated...

Little Gifts of Love

My Youngest and I have a ritual we go through. This is how it goes...

Him: " I love you, Momma"
Me: "I love you too."
Him: *Smile* and *hugs*
Me: "Why do I love you?"
Him: "Because God gave me to you as a special gift."
(I started telling him this when he was a baby and now he can repeat it...)
Me: "That's right, sweetie." *More hugs*

With my health problems I very well could have (and likely should have been) one of those ladies who is never able to have children.

But God has blessed me with two little miracles.


Here are some of their gifts to me:





I can't think of anything sweeter thank a little boy bringing flowers to his mother.

Oh, and by the way, if you are EVER given flowers by my boys, they MUST go in your hair!

vintage crochet books-- free pdfs

>> Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Life has been absolutely insane.

Moving to the new house.... trying to get the old house ready for sale or rent (we haven't decided which yet)... trying to maintain my sanity while moving between two houses... trying to maintain two houses... trying to unpack boxes... starting gift-making for Christmas... and getting ready to start homeschooling (This will be my first year schooling two)!

I am looking forward to a time when I will not have to juggle quite as much at once!

On my search for Christmas Crafts I came across these vintage books. I LOVE the old crochet patterns! I have yet to try them, but it is sooooo fun to look. Actually doing will have to wait for an other time.

Please note that there is a button at the top right of each page for downloading, most often labeled "download" or "pdf".

The New Guide to Knit and Crochet
Crochet Explained and Illustrated
Mee's Compainion Work-table
The Ladies' Work-table

School Arts, Vol 10
