    Yield Not to Temptation

    Yield Not to Temptation

    I suppose this is goodbye! However, Lord willing, it is actually only a “see you later” type of goodbye, like a “see you next fall and have a good summer” thing! It is also my “I enjoyed sharing some of my thoughts and opinions with you in this year’s blogs (Léo’s Insights) and hope that they help … Continue reading "Yield Not to Temptation"

    Staying Out of Trouble

    Staying Out of Trouble

    Isn’t it funny how children can ask the funniest questions? Sometimes, their questions are very astute. In fact, children have the ability to see things without the clutter of life that often blinds us from seeing things as obviously as they do. I find children’s questions to be refreshing in that they often cause us to face … Continue reading "Staying Out of Trouble"

    How A Home Education Differs from A Standard Education

    How A Home Education Differs from A Standard Education

    We are all thankful for having choice in education. After all, if everyone was subject to being educated in the exact same way, we would be correct in renaming schools, factories. In a factory, the goal is to consistently produce the same product without issue, as anything differing from the expected standard is usually a source of trouble. Fortunately, we do … Continue reading "How A Home Education Differs from A Standard Education"
