Growing up in a Christian home school family, my father, Daniel Kihlstadius, instilled in me the importance of getting involved in the political process. He would bring me along to go drop flyers in neighborhoods, make phone calls to remind people to go vote, and take me to the Caucuses so I could learn how grassroots politics worked. He showed me how important it was to not just believe in protecting our God-given rights and freedom, but to actively fight to preserve them.

As we gear up for another election cycle there are signs that the Christian homeschooling movement is maturing within the public square. This has been very evident at the Legislature with the success last year of the bill increasing homeschooling freedom. Additionally, over the last decade several homeschool parents have become state legislators; they include Representatives Mary Kiffmeyer, Pam Myhra, Kathy Lohmer and Jim Abeler and Senators Michael Jungbauer, Sean Nienow and Dan Hall.

Nationwide, more and more families are choosing to home school their children each year, and the fastest growing segment of the home school movement is African-Americans, experts say. Some 220,000 black children are home-schooled, according to one estimate.  ~ Garrett Tenney at FoxNews.com

One huge blessing of home education is that you are able to choose the requirements for your school. The Minnesota state law only specifies what courses need to be covered each year. You decide what curriculum you will use, the time frame for each course and what your requirements will be for your students.

Summer is a great time to relax and read your favorite book.  What are some books you would recommend and why? What are your favorite books to read to your children?

Please post.  We would love to hear from you!   Maybe someone will find a book to read that is not on their list.
 

books, reading

I am a bookworm and I live with a family of bookworms.  I purposely encouraged them to be bookworms because reading is not only enjoyable but also educational.  Reading takes us to many places right from the comfort of our favorite chair.  Some of our books have traveled with us, adding yet another layer of memories to the story.  For those of us who homeschool, having books within reach is often necessary for our school days, rainy days and lying around in the sun days.
