I've just discovered a great blog! It's called I can teach my child, and besides all the amazing thematic unit plans and activities (neatly arranged by age, thank you oh so much), the author also has a really neat section called "Lessons Learned." For example, check out this wonderful post on beauty: "I love you... snotty nose and all."
"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! "
