7 quick takes sm1 Your 7 Quick Takes Toolkit!

Here is the list of books I am reading/have read this summer.  There seems to be a recurring theme in all of them of peace and prayer–I think God is trying to tell me something.

1
Simplify Your Homeschool Day: Shorten Your Day Sweeten Your Time 
This is actually a re-read.  I read it over the winter but am refreshing myself with this book as I gear up to plan next year’s school day.

A very quick read, but valuable look at how to organize your day and use the time you have effectively for what is most important to you.  As a bonus, you can find free tools to apply what you have learned here.

I started this in the spring but haven’t had a chance to pick it up again. Hoping to get there once I finish The Little Oratory.

This one I have not purchased yet, but I am looking forward to once I have finished reading the above five books.  I think this is just what I need to kick the school year off.
