Well all this homeschool on the brain has made me think I should start doing some reading and learning of my own :-) I guess that's a great side benefit to teaching your kids: you rediscover that love of learning.
One of my passions is reading good books and it seems like ever since I've had babies and toddlers in the house, I've had no time for my own reading time. I'm lucky if I have an uninterrupted 30 seconds to browse the subjects of my emails, so I'm always afraid to start a good novel. I have so many I want to read and re-read.
On the bulletin board for http://www.4reallearning.com/ I have found a great discussion thread about Catholic book recommendations for grown-ups. (They also have great discussion areas for all sorts of other homeschool and catholic stuff)
I'm also inspired by this new series Loyola Classics: it's old catholic fiction that is being reprinted by Loyola press and looks like what I might be wanting.
I also want to read the rest of the books in his 'Children of the Last Days' series by Michael O'Brien.
For now, I'm enjoying reading 'Little House in the Big Woods' with the kids. Elizabeth has a paper doll set that goes with this book and is begging me to keep reading it to her every time I sit down.
