Baby Names

by autumn on December 8, 2010 · 9 comments

I am 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant. We don’t have a name for this baby yet. Not that that is entirely strange. We’ve named a baby then changed it hours later. This pregnancy has been a bit odd in that we haven’t really discussed names much. We all kind of assumed or felt this […]

Are You Reading to Your Children?

by autumn on November 5, 2009 · 10 comments

It seems that everyone will agree with you that reading to your children is important.  But how many are actually incorporating it into their homeschool schedule? For me, reading to Haley when she was an infant was easy.  She was the first baby and I had all the time in the world to devote to […]

Who’s Teaching Your Kids Life Lessons?

by autumn on August 27, 2009

Homeschooling isn’t just sitting down with your children and teaching them math, reading, science and history. As a matter of fact, in our schedule there is no math. Nature is our science. And reading and history are combined in a fun way. Homeschooling means you, the parent, want to be the one to teach your […]

Are you smart enough?

by autumn on August 16, 2009

You are not required to have a degree to homeschool your children. Having said that Michael and I have quite a bit of advanced education.  Michael is a doctor and possibly the smartest person I will ever meet (say any ancient civilization or geographic region and he will give you an in-depth explanation in 10 […]

Greek, anyone?

by autumn on August 5, 2009 · 2 comments

Since June our family has been learning how to read Greek (Biblical Greek).  It has been such an amazing experience!  It’s something we ALL do together.  Yes, even the 2 year old! We do everything else together so why not Greek? When we started out we simply made notecards and memorized the symbols.  After we […]

Field Trip: Farm

by autumn on July 29, 2009 · 1 comment

Recently we started drinking goat’s milk after we finally faced the fact that Haven is sensitive to pasteurized cow’s milk.  We had a feeling but when it got worse the more he had, we knew. Thankfully, we found a sweet young family with 2 extra gallons of goat milk we could buy each week.  The […]

Do You Have 2 Heads?

by autumn on July 26, 2009

2 Heads? For sure!  I mean I must if I homeschool, right? That’s certainly what many people think when you tell them you homeschool.  It’s interesting that the fact that we homeschool always comes up after they’ve raved incessantly over the local schools. Ever noticed that everyone who sends their kids to public school resides […]

Our Daily Schedule

by autumn on July 24, 2009 · 1 comment

(originally posted June 21, 2009 at Do I Need A Bigger Plate?) Over the past few weeks, life in the Beck house has changed dramatically. I am so humbled by God’s ever present hand in my life. For years we have known of the book Teaching the Trivium by Bluedorn. We knew of this book […]

Where are all the homeschoolers??

by autumn on July 24, 2009 · 7 comments

Since we’ve moved to Kerrville (in Feb.) everyone – EVERYONE – tells us there are “tons” of homeschoolers here.  But where are they??? There is virtually zero presence on the web for anything homeschool related in Kerrville.  That’s why I decided to start this blog.  I have a family blog called Do I Need A […]
