Oh, and about those chores . . . encourage your children of ALL ages to get their “to do” list done in the mornings, so they can enjoy their Summer afternoons. Arlene enjoys spending her afternoon on the front porch swing reading.
Arlene has been studying how styles change for a while. For the past 2 years, she has sewn a vintage pattern for her 4-H outfit.
Here’s one sure to be a hit with your kids: MARVEL’s Volume 1 of ‘The Wonderful Wizard of OZ’ graphic novel.
Now about those High Schoolers. . .
Emily is also going to read Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. I read it a couple years ago and think it will be a solid comparison between her education, and what happens in most public schools today.
On Em's night stand, I found her Bible, a hymnal, a journal, and Anne of Ingleside.
I'm not sure Emily will get as much reading time as she likes this summer, but she'll have enough.
