Laundry Detergent

This past October, I made homemade liquid laundry detergent. I made a half-batch and being I only wash 3-4 loads a week, it has lasted me a while. I figured it cost me a penny a load. So far, it is working nicely. Here is the site that I got the know how from.

Update: the link I had here is not good anymore, so I found a new place to go to with many different recipes. I usually go by # 2, but I only do a fourth at a time being I don't nned as much.

CRA Private School

We called our homeschool CRA Private School because it was our girls' initials and homeschooling is about as private as it gets. We homeschooled for 8 and a half years back in the 80s-90s. We had many blessing and are very glad we chose that route for our children's education. Both have gone on to achieve many goals in their lives. We are proud of them.

Homeschooling

Homeschooling is a great adventure
A challenge and a blessing, too.
Learning comes not just from books.
There are many areas to pursue.

Seeing first hand what happens
By going on field trips galore.
Learning by on-hand experience
When freely allowed to explore.

If children can learn without hurry
And can go at their own pace,
Nothing can quite compare
With the victorious look on each face.

Being taught self-discipline is the answer
In learning to write, to cipher, or to read.
Training them to have concern for others
And helping when there is a need.

Homeschooling is not for everyone
But, for the ones who were willing to try,
God has surely blessed our efforts
And talents we were willing to apply.
