DIY Washi Tape Pencils

DIY Washi Tape Pencils - Simple, easy, and fun instructions |

Last Christmas, my mom had put ‘cute pencils’ on her wish list. (This was mostly for the younger boys). Honestly, I didn’t think that was a difficult request at all. I had bought some a while before that were super cute and if I remembered correctly, they weren’t expensive either. So I took my 11-year-old […]

Why I’m Going to Homeschool My Children

Why I'm Going to Homeschool My Kids - written by a 20-year-old homeschool graduate |

As I see all these pins on Pinterest, posts on blogs, and cute pictures on Instagram of children with their “first day of school” signs, plus having my two younger brothers starting school soon (the youngest brother is staring kindergarten. WHAT??), I’ve gotten to thinking about that one day when I have my own kids […]

A List of Christian Adventure Books

A List of Christian Books for the Adventurer |

I may be a girl, but I sure do love a book with adventure it in. I mean, where is the thrill if it didn’t have adventure? Documentary books drain the life right out of me and therefore I don’t often learn all that much, but give me a historical fiction and I am sucked […]

It is getting very close to that time of year when your kiddos head out the door (or in our case, get our books and head downstairs) for the first day of school. Some of you, I’m sure, have a kid starting their first “official” year of school, right? My youngest brother will be starting […]

Inspirational Reads for Young Girls

Inspirational Reads for Young Girls (and their mothers) |

A couple of my girlfriends and I were discussing mother-daughter relationships in literature one time, and we pointed out how books don’t really show what a good mother-daughter relationship looks like.  Books basically have two kind of relationships. A really tense, cut-the-air-with-a-knife kind of relationship, or a don’t-let-go-I-love-you sort of relationship. Although the first relationship […]

20 Things about a Bibliophile

20 Things about a bibliophile |

Warning: This isn’t my normal writing…proceed at your own will. Hello, my name is Cassondra Freeman. I am a bibliophile. I’m an addict of books and I cannot, and will not, give up this addiction. (Not unless I become blind). I noticed my addiction when I was a little girl, probably around the age of […]
