for more fields of daisies days!
If you are just stopping by for the first time, you may be wondering what in the world I mean by “fields of daisies” days. 🙂
Welcome to my cozy corner of Bloglandia!
Click on over to read what these wonderful days are all about, then come back and sit and stay awhile! I’m so glad you’ve found Fields of Daisies.
I hope you will enjoy the units I’m posting, my favorite homeschooling finds, and most of all, I hope you will find some encouragement to keep on
living, loving, and learning with your family!
So, without further ado…on to the fun!!
Earlier this week, I posted some thoughts on being able to SEE the good and the Mercy in each day… and I kept thinking, in the least, we all have days that test our patience.
It’s so frustrating when our plans change, or sickness happens, or there are endless trips to and from, and “school” gets put on hold.
How do you homeschool on days like these?
Some days are just difficult, but making them into the best, most memorable kinds of days is totally possible. It’s more than possible!
(REALLY this IS a fun post! I promise! Keep reading !)

* Unexpected all day in the car~
Laughable some days isn’t it ?!?
– Just talk to each other.
Some of the very deepest conversations I’ve had with my children have happened spontaneously while in the car. Maybe it is the lack of distractions, or maybe because we have each other as a
captive audience. 🙂
Either way, don’t “miss it” and stress about all that isn’t getting done at home… lots of important life can be found in the confines of the car.
– Roll the windows down and SING!
Sing LOUD too!
Ahhhhh. Doesn’t that feel so good?!?!
