Book Club

Dear Homeschoolers!

I am interested in starting a book club.  The books would be the Ponytail Girls book series!  They are geared for 4th grade and up, but I think for homeschoolers 2nd grade?  The books have questions and activities for the girls, so it would be an interactive group.  For the Christmas book it talks about going Christmas caroling, which we already do :)  Here is the book's website to check out:

I would like to limit to about 10-12 children for our home.  Maybe meeting twice a month?  We can always increase the meeting times, if the kids show interest.

If your family would be interested, please let me know which days and times work best for your family if you think your children would be interested:

Tuesdays or Thursdays 6:30PM or 7PM, beginning in Sep/Oct.  I may be interested in offering this to a co-op as well?  Thank you!  As always, please email me at

The Art of Conversation

Every year I am invited to a friend's garden party.  I look forward to it each year and have my calendar marked a year in advance :)   She is such an amazing, caring woman who touches so many lives!  I feel very blessed to know her :)  It is such a beautiful time, with devotion, information and of course delicious homemade food!  This year we were outside with light drizzle and did not care, no one complained, it is the setting God meant us to be in; watering her beautiful garden :)

I knew some of the ladies, but the majority I did not.  Yes, the conversations flowed so easily and everyone really enjoyed the time together.  We were of all different Christian denominations, ages, locations, etc.  Yet, the end was the same, Christ filled, devotion, laughter, food, her garden, etc.  She is such an inspiration!

Preparing to leave my friend said, how easy it was for everyone to talk!  Agreed.  She said how it can only happen with daughters of Christ/God.  Thinking about it, YES, very true!  Have you experienced the same?

It was truly a blessing and cannot wait for the next gathering!!!  There are some who when you leave, you are filled with HIS love!  Rejoice in the SONshine :)
