I have to apologize AGAIN! I did not have the code set up correctly for you to get the Nature Study printables via text message last week. You can definitely get them in the show notes here. I’ve learned how to prevent this problem in the future, but I’ve learned something even more important. I have the best listeners! I didn’t get one complaint. Not one crabby email about this. You are my people and I love you. Thank you for putting up with all my foibles. I wish I could promise there will be no mistakes going forward, but I can’t.

What did go very well last week was the Facebook Live inside look and giveaway of Our Journey Westward’s Charlotte-Mason friendly materials. We had a great time! You can join me on Tuesdays at 4E/3C/2M/1P for more homeschool sanity goodness at Facebook.com/Psychowith6. Comments and shares during the live video earn double entries, but you can still comment up to a week later for an entry in the giveaway. If you’re not a giveaway lover, there’s still nothing like seeing resources in person and being able to ask questions about them. I love Facebook Live for this purpose. If there’s a discount available, I’ll share that, too.

Teaching Tip of the Week

Last week was a time of grieving Mandy Kelly and three of her family members. This blogger behind Worshipful Living was a friend to many of us in Christian, homeschooling, and blogging circles. We will miss her terribly, but we give thanks to God for using her to minister to thousands of people. The grief that I and many friends experienced prompted me to do a Periscope video on how to manage grief and then a second Periscope on how to help others who are grieving. The second video, in particular, reminded me that we need to teach our children how to help those in mourning. If we don’t, they are likely to make mistakes that will add to others’ pain.  I also recommend the book The Art of Helping by Lauren Littauer Briggs that I contributed to. This book is for your reference and is a great resource when you aren’t sure what to say or do in specific situations.

I have an apology and an invitation. If you texted to receive Barb Raveling’s Bible study last week, you didn’t get it. That code won’t work. You’ll need to go to homeschoolsanity.com/truth to claim that study. And guess what? This week’s texting code won’t work either! Fortunately, you can get your free nature study downloads right from these show notes. You’ll be added to the inspiring Psychowith6 & Our Journey Westward newsletters.

Join me for a giveaway of 5 of Cindy’s books on the Facebook page Tuesday, March 21st at 4E/3C/2P/1M. You can enter the giveaway all week. You’ll get to see inside Cindy’s books and ask questions. You can use the code SANITY for 20% everything in the store until March 28th!
