"Clearly, our homeschools must teach children about government. This education is complicated by the fact that we have essentially two classes of governments-the ones that Americans have agreed to under the federal Constitution and Bill of Rights, state constitutions, and local charters and the ones that we live under, which are quite different.

Perpetuated by now vast bureaucracies and often unprincipled politicians, these governments have assumed roles that are not specified or permitted by agreement with the people.

This second class-the government we have today-continually spends vast resources “educating” the people with propaganda activities. About which class of government should we teach our children? The practical answer must be both."

– Dr. Arthur Robinson



Recently the Tuttle Twins books have come onto the scene and I LOVE THEM! I have formed homeschool book club centering about these books, teaching libertarian principles. They have good morals, and excellent for teaching liberty in engaging  ways for young people. These are some of our favorite books!
If you have kids, then you NEED these books!



Check Out the new Curriculum from Tuttle Twins!


The “Tuttle Twins” series teaches children about the importance of freedom and the proper role of government. Check it out HERE.

The Robinson Curriculum does not give extensive instructions in writing besides having students write a daily essay. For some parents, they navigate just fine with the program as is.


However, some parents find themselves struggling in this area when constantly thinking of topics to assign, dealing with children who show frustration in producing these assignments, and worried when there is little to no progress.

This writing course compliments RC perfectly, since the creator was an RC dad to 5 children homeschooled in the program!

“If you will give your child less than 10 minutes a day, we will give you a child who writes well — guaranteed” Dr. Fred Ray Lybrand



After completing the Writing Course (21 Days), then investing about 10 minutes a day of working with your student, it will change everything! This step by step guidance for every day, will take the pressure of the parent!

This is one of the best investments you can ever make for your family! Just like the Robinson Curriculum, it is only a flat one time fee for the whole family to benefit!

These are the best days of my life and I know it. Today was our final chapter of Hitty. A book written in 1929 and won the Newberry award in 1930. The story sets with a doll in the 1820s and documents all her travels and adventures in her first 100 years.

A couple of my favorite read aloud tips...

👍Always start by reading the title, author and illustrator every time.. it helps kids recognize the name of their favorite authors and illustrators are important too.

👍Start each session with a recap of what happened in the last chapter.

👍Often with the older books we run across RC vocab words so when I read one, I pause and ask who knows what it means and they get to tell the other kids. They get so excited when they recognize a vocab word. If you don’t use these words in your everyday vocabulary (I know I don’t) then the least we can do so it doesn’t seem like a foreign language, is to read aloud books that contain them.

❤️Goodbye Hitty thanks for the memories!



"Hitty is a doll of great charm and character. It is indeed a privilege to publish her memoirs, which, besides being full of the most thrilling adventures on land and sea, also reveal her delightful personality. One glance at her portrait will show that she is no ordinary doll. Hitty, or Mehitable as she was really named, was made in the early 1800s for Phoebe Preble, a little girl from Maine. Young Phoebe was very proud of her beautiful doll and took her everywhere, even on a long sailing trip in a whaler. This is the story of Hitty's years with Phoebe, and the many that follow in the life of a well-loved doll."
