    Hi Nicole. I am new to your channel and enjoyed watching your Erin Condren 2015 flip through. I couldn’t help but notice your Happy Sabbath notes along with Adventurers/Pathfinder appointments. I was curious if you were Seventh-day Adventist?

    Hi Nicole, I just found your blog through searching YouTube for classical conversations videos. I’m a mom of 4 and considering homeschooling. My oldest two are 7 and 5 year old boys who are currently at a Christian private school. I have two younger daughters. I actually considered homeschooling for my oldest when he was a toddler but decided against it after we discovered he had developmental delays which we are now realizing are probably learning disabilities. We are really torn about what to do for many reasons, but I just wanted to tell you that watching your heart-felt and “real” life videos inspires me and makes me think maybe I could tackle homeschooling. You are truly inspirational and I pray you are greatly blessed!

    Hi Nicole, i enjoyed reading your blog and watching the youtube videos. I am struggling with an active toddler who does crafts and also water coloring. But he gets frustrated to trace lines and alphabets.

      Hi Evelyn! What you are doing is fine and there is nothing wrong with your toddler not wanting to write right now. Try activities that help develop his fine motor skills like lacing cards, stringing beads, using tweezers etc. He may be frustrated because he hasn’t developed a good pencil grip yet. He is still young and you should go at his pace and begin the handwriting when he is ready.Thanks for stoping by!
