I'm Simplifying Our Homeschool

I found myself reading this weekend articles on how technology has made homeschooling easier. I tend to disagree. I actually think it makes things more difficult. So am going back to the basics! God has really been pulling on my heart lately to get back to Him, in my education. You see I've been relying on so many different online tools to teach my kids that I am starting to leave out the most important tool and reason why I started home educating to being with-GOD, His morals, His principles, His foundation. So I am canceling my  online subscriptions, and taking control. Going back to the basics,with bible in hand. So what does our day look like now?
