Wondering What Homeschooling is All About? Check out these Freebies!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: FamiliesAgain Freebies

I began FamiliesAgain Freebies several months ago because I was hoping to get some free things to pass on to all of my readers. Well, if you have been reading for a while, you know that I haven't passed on too many things. Today, I checked my email and found that the great folks at The Old Schoolhouse - TOS were offering some freebies this summer and wanted us to let you all know about them. So, this summer, I'm going to be hi-lighting a couple of things one day a week. I'm going to try to keep with a theme each time. This weeks theme is -

What is homeschooling all about and what about public schools? 

TOS has two great freebies that talk about just that. The first is a small pamphlet called:

What About Public School? is a discussion between TOS' founder Gena Suarez and three authors about why they think Public Schools should not be an option for Christian kids. When you print this out, it may look a little funny because it was meant to be printed as a front and back tri-fold pamphlet. If you are a homeschooler looking for homeschool information to pass on to your friends, you are welcome to print it out and pass it around free of charge. If you are new to homeschooling or are exploring, hopefully this pamphlet will answer some of your questions. Enjoy!

Are Public Schools an Option for Christian Kids is along the same lines as the pamphlet above, but it is a whopping 64 page ebook that goes into much more detail. It is a very interesting read for those of you who are seriously delving into and praying about what kind of education is right for your child.

Enjoy this weeks freebies. Stay tuned for more next week. I would say on Saturday, but you know me and posting things on the days I'm supposed to post things on. I need an ebook on following schedules Laughing. At any rate, just be looking for some new freebies next week! Until then, Happy Reading!

We're off on another field trip for Field Trip Friday!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Blog Carnivals!


Our family has been blessed to have been able to go to a lot of great places. We have driven the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped at many of the wonderful places along the way. We have toured the battlefields of Gettysburg and experienced Amish country in Pennsylvania. We've gone to museums, lighthouses, botanical gardens, zoos, historical places, national parks...we love to travel and see new things. Some of the neatest adventures that we have been on, however, have been adventures that we haven't even sought out. They are off the radar, unusual places. This week on Field Trip Friday I'm spotlighting and adventure that we have been on once before. Others have posted links to great places that they have seen. Join the fun by clicking here or on the banner above. Then, dream of the things that you and your family can experience this summer by reading the different posts. Have fun!

I'm About to Swag My Way to Amazon,com! Again!
Mood:  happy
Topic: FamiliesAgain Freebies

Search & Win 

I know that I've mentioned swagbucks before, but I really want to rave again about them. I have only been doing swagbucks for about two months and I already have earned $20 in Amazon gift cards. How do you win swagbucks? It's simple! All you have to do is use their toolbar to do your searches. When you search, you win. You don't always win, but you win a lot of the time, and there are various amounts that you might win. I have earned from 5 to over 25 bucks just by doing a search. And there are other ways to win as well. You can search for codes where you earn extra swagbucks. You can take surveys. There are all sorts of ways. I generally just do the searches. Every once in a while I will go on a search for special swag codes, but those are few and far between. After you earn so many bucks, you turn them in for all kinds of prizes. I have always chosen the Amazon gift cards, but you can choose hundreds if not thousands of different items, gift cards, and more at a variety of swagbuck prices. You can download their tool bar to do the searches if you would like, but you don't have to. You can just go to their site to do it. It really is easy and a lot of fun and very rewarding. Just click on the banner above to join all of the fun.

Memories from the Past
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: General

I was reading Facebook this evening. A writer friend of mine was commenting on seeing fireflies for the first time. They've lived in Lancaster for a few years, but are usually very busy in the summers and are away from home. She left a beautiful writer's type description of God's great creatures ~ fireflies. 

I remember when we used to live in the "County Home". Yes I'm old enough to remember those things and no I didn't live there as a client. My parents were the superintendents of what was known as the old folks home. We lived in the superintendents quarters. It was a joy for a little five year old boy. I had a couple dozen grandmas and grandpas. I even had a great play mate. A 40 something mentally retarded man named Glen. We did everything together during the couple of years that myfamily  lived there. I didn't have any prejudices or fear of being around Glen. He was a great friend.

I remember one summer when the fireflies were abundant. Mom and Dad had bought me one of those plastic bug catchers. In the late 60's those were brand new and pretty rare. I remember running around late into the evening trying to catch those shining bugs. I don't remember whether I had ever noticed them before or not, but during that beautiful northern Indiana night, they were amazing. We had a large side yard that was full of them. I recall putting grass inside for them to "feed" upon. I don't know how many actually lived but it was fun chasing and collecting.

For some reason that's one of those memories from my childhood that stand out. Some people remember more than others of their past. A few have very clear recollections of events from their childhood. I believe most of us have only bits and pieces our childhood that God has helped us store in our minds. Most are special memories. Memories that cause a warm feeling inside when ever they are conjured up. Some may only come to mind once or twice a year, but, each time they are, they are recalled just as clearly as the time before. This was one of those recollections that had been pushed back into the depths of my brain until God required it to be due again. Then, tonight, it once more gave me that warm fuzzy feeling inside. Thanks God.
