Why I Blurb

I’ve added a new component to our home school day this year—30 minutes of daily non-fiction reading, each child gets to pick the source.  I came home with an armful of books from the library; Women who Changed the World, Baseball Facts, 1000 Famous People, etc.

But yesterday one of the kids came up with a different alternative—some home-grown non-fiction.  How could I say no?


I got quite a bit done on my next Blurb book during the summer, but I’m having a hard time getting back into it.  This was great motivation for me!

PS—Jared is reading in the Harry Potter spot, under the stairs.  More pictures of that later.


  1. That is really sweet! And oh my gosh, I LOVE the Harry Potter reading nook!!!!!!!!!! I'm totally going to read there when we come! ;)

  2. You have a harry potter room too!? We're planning on turning ours into a little play house for the girls for their Christmas present. Then maybe when they're older, turn it into a reading nook....
