Some Places You’ll Find Me Writing This Week:
Arranging a Kid Swap at Simple Homeschool
I was excited to have a guest post published at Simple Homeschool this week. Go check out an arrangement that a friend and I have that helps us each have a little free time each month. (Plus, you can see Molly holding a chicken!)
Appropriate Picture Size for Walls at The Happy Housewife
I shared the reasons why it’s better to use large portraits and art on your walls (as well as the fact that 8x10s aren’t really large)
Links I’ve Enjoyed Lately:
Evernote is Still as Awesome as Ever – Small Notebook
I have just started using Evernote, and am really enjoying it. If you haven’t checked it out, you can read more about it here.
Birds: April Unit Study – The Happy Housewife
Fabulous collection of resources for studying birds. My kids would love this!
Chore Charts and an American Girl – Impress Your Kids
Amanda shares a great DIY chore chart for kids (and the story of her daughter saving her money for an American Girl doll.)
Buttery Coconut and Almond Morning Buns – Willow Bird Baking
Oh. my. word. These look amazing and delicious and extraordinary and a bunch of other adjectives.
The Case for Seasonal Education – Simple Homeschool
I read this post and loved it. Then, I wanted to kick myself because it has its roots in Thomas Jefferson Education, which I love, but have never been able to bring myself to actually do. Boo for Angie!
My Version of the Workbox System – WV Urban Hippies
Love this dish rack version of the workbox system to save on space (and money!)
Backyard Playhouse – Family Fun Magazine
While I probably wouldn’t invest the money in this kind of project now that my kids are getting older, this is still a very cool project.
