My recommendations this week:
If there’s any book I’d recommend reading before you head back to homeschool, it would be this one.
Even just the first chapter is enough to give me a homeschooling pep talk any time of the year when I begin to question or doubt what we’re doing as a family.
A recommendation for good pencils might seem strange initially, but only if you’ve never had the frustration of a pencil that won’t properly sharpen. I only ever buy Ticonderoga since I first discovered them, and they’re pre-sharpened too.
I used this to spray paint the top and drawers of Trishna’s battered old wooden desk this morning. At $4 a can I can think of a lot of cool places a homeschool family could use this around the house & have an instant chalkboard!
