Memo Monday Lists

What I really want to do is to post the memo on here that Jocelyn made for when she forgot to get the Homeschool Memoirs done  a couple of weeks ago. Instead, I am going to post a couple of wish lists I made out for our home school books last night.

Lamplighter Books

We have some gift certificates for The Old Schoolhouse Store, so I was looking for the Pilgrim’s Progress Curriculum set last month, and I found out they don’t have it. :( So, I was looking at the Lamplighter books, and I made a pretty good list. I will give you the name and the price. If you want to see the descriptions, go to the Lamplighter category at TOStore.

*Mothers of Famous Men – Lamplighter  $18
*Mary Jones and Her Bible – Lamplighter  $17
*Little Threads – Lamplighter  $17
*Stepping Heavenward – Lamplighter $20
*What Is Her Name? – Lamplighter $17
*The Duties of Parents – Lamplighter $7
*The Three Weavers – Lamplighter $13
*The Stranger At Home – Lamplighter $14
*Tom Gillies – Lamplighter  $18
*Tomorrow – Lamplighter $16
*Children of Cloverley – Lamplighter $18
*Teddy’s Button – Lamplighter $17
Christie’s Old Organ – Lamplighter  $16
Christie, the King’s Servant – Lamplighter  $16
The White Knights – Lamplighter $18
The Lost Ruby – Lamplighter  $14

The ones marked are the ones I definitely want. We have a copy of Christie’s Old Organ and Christie the King’s Servant, so I moved those to he bottom. 😉 I tried to pick out a good balance of girls’ interests and boys’, and mom’s – like the one on procrastination (Tomorrow).

While I am listing books, here are the book suggestions I gave a friend on Twitter last week- Join me! Sisterlisa asked me if I was going to post them somewhere, so, here it is (they’ll be on my blog too). Several of them are Lamplighters, too, that we have read for the Book Club:

Books for Boys/girls: The Inheritance, The Hedge of Thorns, Heroes for God, Explorers For God, the Kingdom Series, the Little house books

Books for young men/boys: Titus Comrade of the Cross, Enoch Roden’s Training, Boys of Grit, Tiger&Tom/Other Stories, Christie’s Old Organ

More books for young daughters: Anne of Green Gables, ,Rosa of Linden Castle, Little Faith, Christie’s Old Organ, The King’s Daughter/Other Stories, Daughters of Destiny, Hero Tales, Helen’s Temper, the Hedge of Thorns

HOW Wisdom Internet-linked Unit Study

Heart of Wisdom Blog

The second wish list I made out is what I need for the HOW Wisdom Unit Study. I made a CHECKLIST and Planning Sheet so I can check off each unit and the steps in the HOW Teaching Approach. It’s a short list, but fortunately, I found some other awesome resources I need for our children. Our children, not me, I tell you. These are the resources I am looking for, and the grades they are needed for:

[ ] Wisdom and the Millers by Mildred A. Martin

[X] In His Steps by Charles M. Sheldon
[ ] Noah Webster’s Advice to the Young by Noah Webster
[X] The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
[ ] Walking Wisely: Real Guidance for Life’s Journey by Charles Stanley

[X] In His Steps by Charles M. Sheldon
[ ] Noah Webster’s Advice to the Young by Noah Webster
[X] The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
[ ] Our Father Abraham: Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith by Marvin R. Wilson
[ ] Walking Wisely: Real Guidance for Life’s Journey by Charles Stanley

I would love a nice copy of The Pilgrim’s Progress, but for now, we can rent them two at a time from the library. I am going to check and see if any of the rest are there, though I think it would be better to get our own copies for the fifteen-unit study. I have an account at the HOW store, and I love the wish list I can keep. I can email one to myself too, which is a great help to just grab it out of my email, instead of going to the site and logging in.

If you are interested in learning about the Purpose of Sabbath, as we are, or any of the Jewish Holidays, Robin has many different sites to help you out. I was on her Biblical Holidays site just last night looking.

Ultimate Women’s Expo

This week I have a special treat for you: Cindy Rushton is having her Ultimate Women’s Expo.

Ultimate Women’s Expo 2009!
New Year, New You!

(PLUS! Preview Chats from now until Expo Week!)

You have heard of the Ultimate Homeschool Expo? Well, now you can sit back in your own home and listen to some wonderful speakers at the ULTIMATE WOMEN’S EXPO! That’s right!! You can chat with other women, homeschool moms and listen to your fave speakers in your own home! Or – you can crank up the speakers on your pc or laptop while you clean or cook, care for your children, or blog!


I can’t go without reminding you to check A Pondering Heart for her Winter Bundle. Over $700 worth of awesome home and home school products being reviewed and given away! There is even a gift for you just for entering! She posts about 5 different prizes a week up for grabs, so check and keep checking back for the next few weeks!

I just found out about a contest I do NOT want you all to enter. It is for some products for my favorite movie, FIREPROOF, so just stay away, ok? The package includes the Love Dare Book and a few other things over at my friend, Jessica’s, blog.

“I ordered two of the ‘Fireproof’ pre-buys (one for us and one to pass around), so have extra copies of the ‘Fireproof Soundtrack’ CD and the ‘Love & Respect’ CD by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs! I also have an extra copy of the book ‘The Love Dare’ by the Kendrick Brothers!”

Prayers for Little Sweeties

Pray for these little hearts, ok? If you have any others, let me know in a comment with a link, and I will put the info here.

Ok, that’s it. What’s on your home school wish list? I am a book-aholic, so that is my usual. What’s yours??

    This topic fits in great with the series I am doing on my blog right now about Library Builders.

    Each post looks at a different category of books, taken from the verse Philippians 4:8, which says “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

    I just put up my wish list as part of the series in progress.

    Thanks for a great post on a great topic!! After reading your list, I’ll have more books to add to my own!
