Instilling a love for reading and learning. Making beautiful memories with our children. Helping them grow their faith while growing our own. These are the things important to many homeschoolers. And finding a top-notch reading and language arts curriculum to meet these objectives is extremely important.
Finalizing curriculum choices for the year is always exciting! After four years of homeschooling I’ve learned that while going through the process of deciding, I need to remind myself to keep things simple. I have a way of trying to pack too much in which in turn, overcomplicates our lives. But when I pull in the reigns and keep it simple that allows us to focus on what is most important in our homeschool.
