Money As a Teaching Tool

Oct 14, 2010 No Comments by

Reprinted from a Timberdoodle Catalog How you spend your money reveals so much about you. Do you buy what you want or what you need? Do you scrimp on others but indulge yourself? Conversely, do you buy lavishly for others and only the dregs for yourself? Do you eat out often while paying the minimum [...]

Oct 07, 2010 No Comments by

Originally published in a 1992 Timberdoodle catalog. How does a home teaching mom also find time to participate in a home business? More importantly, why?! Let me answer the why first.

How Do You Do It All? Housework

Oct 07, 2010 No Comments

Originally posted in a 1992 Timberdoodle Catalog. If you have been home teaching for any length of time, friends, relatives, and strangers have undoubtedly asked you, “how do you do it all?” Oftentimes, the implication is not only why would you do it all, but can you possibly do it all properly. What is “all”? [...]

(Originally published in a 1992 Timberdoodle catalog.) How do you teach your children and maintain the rest of your responsibilities? It is not as hard as some might think. First of all, we are very content with being homebodies, so we do not spend huge amounts of time on field trips or on other activities [...]

Who Are Your Kids Teaching? – January Newsletter

Jan 21, 2010 No Comments

By January, the anticipation of a new school year has become a distant memory and the remaining months of homeschooling loom either as mountains of drudgery or peaks of delight.

December Newsletter: A Slight Departure

Dec 04, 2009 No Comments

Dear Friends, This year we are taking a slight departure from our annual bashing of secular Christmas, to urge you to take inventory on the condition of your children’s hearts.

Is it time to kick the kids out of the house?

Nov 03, 2009 No Comments

Dear Friends, Moving out at eighteen is a fairly recent, definitely cultural idea, one which regardless of the spiritual implications makes no economic or ecological sense. Does every eighteen-year-old need his own stove and refrigerator? How many square feet of housing are wasted on a solitary individual when the more prudent solution is to share? [...]

September Newsletter – Homeschooling Grandpa

Sep 09, 2009 No Comments

Dear Friends, When we embarked on our homeschooling adventure over twenty-five years ago, we knew we wanted to invest in products that would stand the test of time, not only for our burgeoning family, but also perhaps for the generation to come. We didn’t even consider that the next generation to employ these products would [...]

July Newsletter

Jul 09, 2009 1 Comment

Dear Friends, There is more to being vendors at a homeschool conference than loading trailers, matching shirts and sore feet. For Timberdoodle there is also the quirky ritual of choosing a theme song. The chosen song must wake us up for some very early commutes, and underscore the reason we do what we do. This [...]
