"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

School Days.....w/ Ana

Now, I know that Ruthie (at age 4 ½) is technically still too young for school, but she was begging to start.

I wasn’t really excited about starting in on her already-just want to give her (& I) a bit more time to get used to the idea!

But, what’s a mom to do when the child continues to plead day in & day out to “do school like Ana?”

So a few months ago, I had the brilliant idea (if I do say so myself-& I can-it’s my blog!!) of letting Ana take over & teach her little sister.

I wondered if it would work, quite honestly. Ruthie is so fiercely independent that I wasn’t sure Ana COULD teach her.

But it has worked amazingly well. Both the girls look forward to it every day.

& who wouldn’t……when Ana lines up such creative activities?

What fun ideas do you have for letting your “olders” teach your “littles?” (Even if you don’t homeschool, I know a lot of you have great ideas!!)
