Encouraging Hearts and Home

The Encouraging Hearts and Home Blog Hop (previously Hearts for Home Blog Hop) is a weekly blog hop that begins every Thursday morning. The theme of this blog hop is showing that our hearts are for our homes. Post topics include: homeschooling, marriage, parenting, homemaking, faith, budgeting, crafts, DIY projects and more! We would love to see you link up your posts. We feature the most popular post and a few of our favorites every week! Will you be one of the next Featured Bloggers?

Not a blogger? That’s okay! This blog hop will be your one stop location to finding ideas and inspiration for fulfilling your role as a wife, mother and follower of Christ. We are so glad you have stopped by!

We are officially back to school. We started last Wednesday and the kids are L.O.V.I.N.G. their new curriculum. I was very apprehensive in the weeks before we started back, but I don’t regret our decision to change from Clonard Distance Education to what we will be using now.

This is a subject I have never been comfortable. I am by no means an artist. This curriculum forms part of the work we’ll be doing next year. I’m quite excited to get started on it with the kidlets.

Though we aren’t American, my little brother and brother-in-law immigrated to Canada in June and we are going to be using this curriculum in December to learn about all the customs in the USA to give us an idea of the type of Christmas they can expect up in Canada. I’m sure the traditions are similar.
