This is so true. On many days, my favorite song for homeschooling is the chorus to "Yield Not to Temptation". The chorus? "Ask the Saviour to help you, comfort, strengthen, and keep you. He is willing to aid you. He will carry you through." Although the theme is not yielding to "temptation", I find it can be "tempting" to try so many things. Basketball for this child, chess for that child, biology AND another science (in the same year) for another child. This curriculum this year, that curriculum next year. The choices go on and on when it comes to "filling" our schedule.Some of these choices WILL be the right ones. But, I must "ask the Saviour to help me..." He will!! Then, we won't be too porous or too rigid!! Thanks Lee!

I have to confess, I was tempted to call this post "Logic for Dummies" but I was afraid you would know I'm not actually an intellectual. You see, I know that I could never possibly have taught logic to my logic-loving children without some help.
