The second book that I discovered is Homeschooling The Easy Way by Cindy Rushton. I don't even know how I came about finding it but I am so glad I did. She goes right along with the Charlotte Mason love of learning style and has sooo many great ideas. One idea that has made homeschooling for my daughter fun, is scrapbooking her work. She loves to show off her notebook now. It isn't like pulling teeth to get her to start her schooling any more. She comes up with stuff herself that she wants to learn and then goes crazy. If you click on the picture it will take you to her site where you can read in greater detail about the book. She has many other amazing books as well, but this one would be my first pick for getting started.
Blessings my friends.
