Everyday, whilst I nursed his sister, my son and I would read books. Then we would go for walks in the veld, and discover new birds and plants. I really learned a lot more than I had ever learned because my little guy asked so many questions. We did crafts, and also just "mucked about" in mud or sand or water ;-) it was glorious. My daughter was a most obliging baby, always willing to join in.
From our first days of parenting, this verse from Deuteronomy 6 was laid on our hearts:
Though we have tried many things over the years we are back to what the Lord led us to initally and we regret the time spent (and money wasted) in curriculum searching. We use the Weaver curriculum, a Bible based unit study which teaches multiple levels, with hands-on methods to teach all three children at once. The older two children use Christian Light Education Maths, Reading and Language Arts. And my preschooler does a little Rod and Staff Preschool and a lot of playing.
