Audio Drama!

ICHE is promoting a new audio drama. We have a copy and love it! It is the story of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The drama is based on a biblical worldview and contains many godly virtues for both boys and girls. Please use this code, ICHE1 to get $5 off your purchase. This offer only lasts a short time. In Freedoms’s Cause would make a fantastic Christmas gift for anyone and one we highly recommend! Please visit this link for more info.

True To The Last!

We have a new all time favorite book! All the girls read it individually, then Dad read it to the boys. Drum roll please…
True to the Last by Evelyn Everett-Green. This book is fantastic for boys and girls. It teaches boys manly virtues and the girls what to look for in future spouses. Warning: this book is a tear-jerker. Every person in our family was a sobbing basket case. Gives you something to look forward to! We highly recommend this book, you can purchase it from the Lamplighter website at




Thanksgiving At The Smith House!

Hello all!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!  We had a great time with the family and all the wonderful food!

Ronald Reagan, Thanksgiving Day, 1986:
“Perhaps no custom reveals our character as a Nation so clearly as our celebration of Thanksgiving Day. Rooted deeply in our Judeo- Christian heritage, the practice of offering thanksgiving underscores our unshakable belief in God as the foundation of our Nation and our firm reliance upon Him from Whom all blessings flow.”

Our Thanksgiving meal!

What Happens When a Storm Hits?

Our sleep was cut short last night due to a microburst or straight line winds. We had our trampoline staked into the ground 2′ deep and it ripped it up and threw it into our pasture (100 yards) and blew over our beloved willow tree. We spent much of the early morning hours down in the basement. Nothing like having a homeschool lesson at 4 a.m. about tornadoes!
