Focus, Fruitfulness, and God’s Faithfulness

2012 was an amazingly fruitful year for me! Looking back at the pictures of people and events I took, looking at my pictures taken by other people in many church events and in friends’ homes, thinking about all the blogs I posted and all the get-togethers we hosted, not to mention the birthdays that weContinue reading “Focus, Fruitfulness, and God’s Faithfulness”

Perks of Homeschooling — Opportunities

Sparks Homeschoolers have had a tradition of putting up a bazaar during the Christmas season for the last 3 or 4 years. This year, they had the opportunity to do it in a commercial place called Soderno, a big tent open only on weekends for food and bazaars in Molito Lifestyle Center.

Perks of Homeschooling — Flexible Hours

One of the perks of homeschooling is flexible hours. When we were starting out, I asked one of my go-to homeschooling moms, Michelle, how I ought to fix our daily schedule.

OUR VERY OWN HOMESCHOOL ROOM!

We converted my brother’s old room into our very own homeschool room! We used purple (Danae’s favorite color), pink (Noelle’s favorite), and green for the walls, ceiling, drawers, and cabinets.

TO HOMESCHOOL OR NOT TO HOMESCHOOL?

My 5-year-old Danae is in Kinder. She goes to Kidvantage Learning Center, a school 10 minutes away from our house. We were always open to homeschooling, but seeing that Danae enjoyed her first tries at school so much and that she’s such a people person, we decided to enroll her in a regular school —Continue reading “TO HOMESCHOOL OR NOT TO HOMESCHOOL?”
