After experiencing six first days of homeschool, you'd think I'd remember to abide by all the classic dos and don'ts. But the truth is, even in my sixth year as a home educator, I have to remind myself to come back to this list and take it all in.
We are ready to resume our homeschool routine. This time, with a new set of curricula we’ve never tried before. I figured I’d take you all along for the journey as we make the most of our “new normal” during our sixth homeschool year.
I decided to write this post after mentoring a new homeschooler who shared concerns about her son's work ethic. After a long, audible sigh, Karen asked; "How do you get your kids to actually do their schoolwork?" Today, I share some advice.
Okay, so I know the title of this post refers to a rough week. But can I be real? I've been having more like a rough month. Can't seem to throw myself out of bed. Kids don't want to do their schoolwork. The laundry room has a pile of clothes that seem to reach the ceiling. Read about how I handle my tough weeks and how you can, too.
It didn’t become real until the reports manifested in our hometown grocery store. Suddenly, the images of bare shelves circulating social media became our reality. Panic buying had made its way to Middle Georgia. Quarantine had found it's way to our home. Read how it's changed our homeschool and my advice for new homeschoolers.
We’ve all heard the saying; we make time for what’s important to us. The question is, why don’t we consider ourselves important enough to make time for? As a mom, time is limited but self-care is too important to place on the back burner. Learn some practical self-care tips you actually have time for.
