So at the beginning of this school year, I made a post about trying out a new daily schedule. If you haven't read about it, you can check that out here. I had said I would come back and give you guys a report about how well or how poorly it is working for us.… Continue reading Schedule Update
With our school year starting in August this year, the latest I've ever started it, I wanted to take the time to share what we plan to use for each of our kids. As in many homeschools, we have changed from some of the publishers we used in previous years and are trying to see… Continue reading Our 2018-2019 Curriculum Choices
I have to start this post with some honesty. I like meal plans, but I don't like meal planning. And I may have a meal plan prepared for my family, but it is hard to get them to go along with it every single day. This includes my husband, who will make a special request… Continue reading The Homeschool Cafeteria
For this upcoming school year, I started planning back in late April, early May. I purchased all of my kids' textbooks ahead of time and I am done with our lesson plan for at least the first nine weeks. (Most of it is done for the entire year!) With baby 5 on the way, I… Continue reading Our 2018-2019 School Schedule

Join homeschoolbuyersco-op.org for discounts on homeschooling materials. They have… Continue reading How We Save Money Homeschooling

I've heard many things like you have to buy the same material that's used in your local schools, or that you have to use a school-in-a-box program, or that you must… Continue reading How You Can Homeschool for Free! (Or inexpensively)
I seem to have disappeared from the world of blogging, but have no fear! I'm still here, just working on a long and tedious project that I hope you guys will enjoy. I plan on releasing it before the end of the year, so...come back here weekly to check and see as to what it… Continue reading Where am I?
As a mother to four, you would probably have an image of me with all of them gathered around me while I read an engaging story to them. Then after kissing them and tucking them into bed, I go and read a thrilling novel among the pillows of my own bed. Well, part of that… Continue reading Please, Don’t Make Me!
Do you ever get in this mode where you feel that you have to do everything all yourself? I'll be the first to admit this, because I feel that no one is going to get things done like me. And you know what? That is true. No one will do the job like me; but… Continue reading Share the Load!
