1

a haiku a day

concerning the perfection

of ordinary

2

son turns twenty-one

arrow heritage blessing

sunshine with skin on

3

worshiping praising

hopeful thankful and peaceful

Father Son Spirit

4

write it down – stop time

look closely to see all the

extraordinary

5

working and teaching

running resting love making

pure and perfect day

6

wind and breath and soul

the air filled with the scent of

earth and life and death

7

the perfect day is

pajamas to running clothes

back to pajamas

8

a picture a thought

a grain of eternity

freeze it inspect it

9

writing poetry

causes purposeful pauses

count crystalize breathe

10

the unscheduled day

ignores the laws of nature

time is a fiction

When they get really quiet, they're probably not doing their math assignments, they're probably reading

We homeschool so that we can encourage the children’s love of reading.

Do you want a peek into the typical morning of a homeschool mom? Yeah, me too. Is there even such a thing as a typical homeschool mom? I don’t know, but I’ll give you a peek into this homeschool mom’s morning. It’s Monday. Monday’s the brand-new-notebook, clean-sheet-of-paper day of the week: fresh with possibilities. As I […]
