Dark Glass Ponderings

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. -1 Corinthians 13:12

**Thanks to the Crossway Homeschool Book Review program for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a review.  The opinions expressed are my own.**

How do I most efficiently store the boatloads of paperwork involved in homeschooling?  What to keep and what to toss?  How do I organize my son's day while I am doing one-on-one work with my daughter?  What's for dinner?  Where's my living room floor?

These are the questions asked by one homeschooler in New York on a daily basis. I was hoping Vicki Carauna's book The Organized Homeschooler would help me find the answers to these questions. 

Carauna has some great suggestions, but this book at times seemed like a potpourri.  Many ideas were explored, some not as indepth as I would have liked.  Perhaps, organizing a homeschooler is too grand a task to be accomplished in a single volume, however. 

I loved the information Vicky shared about filing though and her bookshelf system.  I wished for even further detail, perhaps an entire book about organizing paperwork?  It sounds like Vicky has developed a fantastic system and judging by the markings in the book has even copyrighted it.  I feel this section was the strongest in the book and would have liked to have seen it expanded on.

On the whole I'm glad I read this book.  I gained a few suggestions for organizing my papers and that's an essential as a homeschooler.
