My New Favorite Homeschool Planner
If you know me at all, you know I have a slight addiction to homeschool planners. When I attend a curriculum share night hosted by one of the local homeschool groups, you can bet money that I am taking and sharing my homeschool planner. I am not that concerned about what new math program you are using (ok, so maybe a little) what I want to know is what planner you are using and why you love it. So today, let’s pretend we are on a curriculum share night and I am going to show you my new favorite homeschool planner and share with you why I love it. (Continue Reading)
The Unexpected Blessings Of Being A Homeschool Family
When we first started homeschooling, I knew there would be some perks. For instance, I have an electric pencil sharpener and laminator. How could I not, being a homeschool mom? However, the unexpected blessings of being a homeschool family, which we have experienced are more of why we keep doing what we are doing.
Now, I want to start with I get that homeschooling is not for everyone. I honestly feel it is a calling. With that, this post is not to put other school choices down, but to highlight what we do and why we do it. (Continue Reading)
Our Homeschool Home – We’re Not Confined To A Room
I just want to start this by saying something, “You don’t need a dedicated room to homeschool!” It is not a requirement, and honestly, I think it is more of a setback. So let me talk to you about our Homeschool Home and why we don’t need a homeschool room.

When Mornings Do Not Work For Morning Basket
I had heard of the concept of having a morning basket for many years but was reluctant to give it a try. I didn’t know how I could add one more thing to our mornings! Mornings are hard! Let me say that again… MORNINGS ARE HARD.
I need at least one, better if it is two, cups of coffee before greeting my children in the morning. Although I consider myself a morning person and would much rather get up early than stay up late, I still need caffeine prior to any interaction. My kids too need time to wake and prepare themselves for the day. I am sure we have a slower morning start than most, but it is what works for our family. (Continue Reading)
