  1. I hate science.. but you make it look fun ..
    How does your house hold all those books?? ha.. I bet you have thousands..ha Do you
    save all your lessons of the older kids to pass down to the younger ones,when they get there? And do you teach the same subject to all kids at the same time? wow...I admire you home school moms, I know this has to be difficult..
    Sending prayers for you and family.
    ps.. hope your fibro is better today.

  2. Thank you so much, Judy!!!!

    I tend to do it a little bit differently for each child. Some like more hands on and some just want to read and write. LOL
    We do have a LOT of books! LOL I love it! ;)
