Blog of the Week

Each morning, before I start the day, I grab my cup of coffee with my smart phone and head to our sun room for my “Daily Encouragement for Homeschooling Mothers” devotion by Charlene Notgrass.
This past week, Charlene’s daily encouragement featured President Theodore Roosevelt’s role in homeschooling his children.

Author David McCullough sums up Roosevelt’s homeschooling experience with this quote from his best-seller, Mornings on Horseback: “He thought what he had learned at Harvard of considerably less value than what he had learned at home.” (1)
