Why One Should Refrain from Doing Science Experiments in Front of Young Children

Yesterday, after Catherine had finished her Science experiment, I asked her to clean up. As usual, she did so right away. A little while later, I heard some noises in the kitchen and assumed that someone had decided to help me with the dishes. However, when I heard giggling coming from the kitchen, I knew that this was not the case and that I needed to check what was happening. As I entered the kitchen, Patrick scampered out. Finnian remained standing on a stool, happily mixing water and food coloring in the clear bowl that his sister had used earlier. Needless to say, Finnian was not happy to see me bring an end to his Science experiment. As for Patrick, he was happy that I never found him in his typical place of refuge, on his sister's top bunk, hiding under her comforter. May God bless and watch over my boys!

Continuing Our Impossible Challenge

When you outgrow the space in your home, sometimes the only option left is to grow up. With this in mind, my husband and a friend installed cabinets above a large desk and more cabinets in our kitchen this summer. I am thrilled as I finally have a place upstairs in which to store many of our learning materials.

Now, I need to focus on moving two of my children into a "new" bedroom; or maybe, I need to first focus on teaching them how to keep a bedroom clean.

It is also the result of living the homemaker vocation seriously for over 20 years with 9 children in tow. The designer and presenter, Tami Kiser, is an author and speaker who resides in South Carolina with her husband, children and many pets."
