1st Grade Priorities

by Shelli Pabis on 01-15-2014 at 03:25 PM
Homeschooling is exciting to me. I can think of a hundred different things I want to introduce to my children, and then I get frustrated that we donít have time to do it all. Thereís simply no way around that. However, when I lay out my priorities, I see that we are achieving quite a few of the most important ones. That is an achievement, and I know I should consider anything else icing on the cake.

Then There Were Two: Essays on Motherhood is a book of essays adapted from my first columns with the Barrow Journal, written before and after my second son was born. So itís about a mother adjusting to life with an infant and toddler as well as musings on nature and family issues. It also has some of my photography from that time.

by Shelli Pabis on 07-23-2013 at 06:47 PM
As we approach our second homeschooling year, my husband and I are having a discussion that has come up before: can we sustain this lifestyle on one salary? As much as I love homeschooling, and as much as my husband supports it, itís not easy when financial concerns arise.

Most new homeschoolers have plenty of concerns. On top of their list is socialization and whether or not they have the ability to teach their children everything they need to know. After doing my research, I no longer
