She shares a wealth of good, free, homeschooling items....vintage readers, classics online, etc. There is more than enough good stuff there to keep you very busy reading, printing, researching and more.
And another great sharing, and freebie to boot: Teaching With God's Heart for The World curriculum downloads about world missions. There are some other goodies over at Harvest Ministries as well...M.A.P.S. for Kids (a 5 day VBS). We are always watching for good ideas we can use as-is or use as starting off points to create something new ourselves. Most often, being and out of the box kind of person, we just use things as starting off points...I'm very much a glean everything useful in some way from even the pile of weeds sort :o)
Honey Roasted Peanuts from Make it From Scratch...Ah-Ha!!! I have a 25# bag of raw peanuts just waiting for a purpose in life! I do believe I've found a good purpose for quite a few of them...now to get shelling! And I found Caramel Corn from unrefined sweeteners too...yum!
Passionate Homemaking shares alot of great recipes...these are just a couple I want to try soon -- Healthy Pumpkin Pie and Sloppy Lentils in the crockpot. There are many many more there...keep looking around.
Some podcasts from Boxcars711 Old Time Radio...we bought 3 sets of 20 CD's a few years back at Sam's Club...Mysteries, Westerns, and Detectives. They were assorted old time radio shows and we love them. We've listened to them I can't tell you how many times. That's a favorite of ours...which is why I love finding more online. Homeschool Radio Shows has a great site, as does Old Time Radio and Kiddie Records Weekly, and we found this one today on a bunny-trail from blogger to blogger. Just another gem to add to our collection.
In fact, PawPawHollerHome shared a great listing of online radio show sites...(as well as a great collection of free homeschool sites here)

Want to see how proper young ladies and gentlemen were expected to conduct themselves in earlier times? This is a great list. We will probably be using this along iwth our George Washington's Rules of Civility.
More classic literature free to download over at The Baldwyn Project.
Graham Family Ministries has a wide selection of EBooks, and a great blog to keep you updated. I was reminded about the Scripture Memory System I had once found over at Simply Charlotte Mason through here as well. As well as A Child's Geography, someone had mentioned on a blog once. I lost the link and never really checked it out. Now I can look it over again.
These look fun --
I'm sure I can find many many ideas to glean from here to make our schooling more fun!

And yes -- this is how ADHD my days tend to run. I can shift gears and change lanes of thought rather quickly and still keep an eye on the lane not taken...just in case :o) Ahhh, a blessing and a curse alike.
