Reading Lists! So many books..so little time!

We read SO many great books over the years but didn’t keep a thorough title list. I definately encourage you and your kids to do this!

Remembering favourite books is like chatting with old friends; those characters we love and identify with.

I love Lisa’s free printable Reading Logs. Add to each child’s reading list each year. Give rewards for numbers of books read.

One creative Mom is putting together a memory box for each child as a gift when they leave home. Special books will be part of the collection. What a GREAT idea!!!!


Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Had a crazy homeschooling day (or week)? The laundry is piled up, the kids aren’t co-operating, the chores aren’t getting done and school attitudes are abysmal..you the conductor of a train with square wheels!

When did we loose the joy of learning? Where did the fun go? As Moms, we are the hub of the home. We set the tone. Maybe it’s time to put some humour back into the day.

Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. In addition to the domino effect of joy and amusement, laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.
