One of my favorite homeschool resource stores changed their name this week. They used to be the Homeschool E-Store. Now they are Curr Click: Curriculum in a Click. I love the resources we have available these days. Lots of homeschoolers have written curriculum for their own families and are able to easily share it with the rest of us saving us time and energy. CurrClick is having a sale this week to celebrate their “Grand Opening.” Check it out.
My husband and I went to the annual AFHE convention this past weekend. This was my 6th year to be able to attend. The theme this year was Learning, Loving and Growing Together. It is always a wonderful time of encouragement, learning and fellowship with other homeschoolers.
The main message that I took home was that I need to praise our children more, that we should go through the Proverbs with them daily and that we need to keep our eye on future generations. That what we do now effects the future greatly.
Kevin Swanson had a great analogy about a family that were assigned the task of taking a space ship to a place that would take 200 years to get to. The first generation knew that they would never survive that long or that their children would not survive that long so they had to pass on the vision to their children of the destination. Then their children had to pass the vision on to their children. That is how we should be. We need to keep passing on the vision to future generations that God is good and that our purpose in this life is love God and glorify him.
