    Default Funny T4L'ing Story!

    Today, I was reading to my children from our Missionary biography and out of nowhere my 11 year starts telling me that going to another country to be a missionary, must be like going to the moon.

    He then proceeds to tell me all about astronauts and space exploration. I just sat staring blankly at him because I know "we've" not covered this. Finally I came to my senses and told him that was GREAT information, where did he hear that. (thinking it must have been from discovery television)

    He just shrugged his shoulders and looked at me (like he was a little surprised and disappointed that I didn't know) as he said, "Time4Learning"?! I just laughed out loud!

    I cannot tell you how many times that has happened. We'll be watching the news and talking about the Presidential election or something going on in the world and one of the boys will say something that I had no idea they knew, only to find out they learned about it in T4L'ing.

    I was just talking w/ my girlfriend and told her that I am seriously considering doing JUST T4L'ing and adding in our bible and read a loud everyday. Right now I do christian subjects for science and history because I want a biblical worldview, but T4L'ing frees me up so that I can consistently read a loud missionary biographies, we do Keys for kids devotionals, etc...,

    Default confirmation

    Thank you; all these stories I'm reading are helping to confirm my decision to primarily use Time 4 Learning for home schooling my daughter in the fall. At first I thought I might need to supplement, but I really think we will start with only T4L, plus our own Bible and misc. electives. Even though I heard the Science and History are not as comprehensive, I feel like there will be enough there with just some small additions to get us through middle school successfully.
