Video Diary of a Homeschool Mom and Amazon Alexa

posted in: Homeschooling | 4

Hi, Friends!  So I have a fun post today!  The kids and I took some time to make a video to show you what a day in our lives looks like.  It also features one of our newest homeschool tools. I hope you enjoy this Video Diary of a Homeschool Mom and Amazon Alexa!

Video Diary Of A Homeschool Mom and Amazon Alexa

For Christmas, I usually get a family gift for us.  This year I bought the Amazon Echo Dot, and it has been such a HUGE hit!  The kids have enjoyed asking it the weather every day; they also love her to tell jokes. Jeff and I use the Echo Dot to play music through Spotify.  And as you can see in the video, there are numerous ways you can utilize this “extraordinary” tool in your homeschool day.


If you are interested in a more detailed look at our day, last year I did a full A Day In the Life post that you can check out, it hasn’t changed a whole lot.  Also, at the beginning of this school year I outlined our curriculum choices for the year and in my March Homeschool Happenings update, I discussed some changes we have made to our curriculum.


Short and sweet! I hope you enjoyed the video.  The kids and I had a fun time making it.  Some scenes took several takes and others we got in two shots.  The kids loved yelling, “Quiet on the set!” Although our homeschool days don’t always look like this, I have to admit… sometimes… sometimes they just do! Real life ya’ll!

    I love it! I use my Amazon Alexa too. I love the 7 min workout, I never seem to have more than seven minutes for a work out, so it works great! Thanks for sharing this
