When Homeschooling Costs You Friends

Homeschooling was the farthest thing from my mind at that moment.  In fact, I wasn’t even in the conversation until a couple of friends called out to me. “So, Kelley,” one of them asked, “how do you like homeschooling?”   Something in her tone made me wary.  The other woman was biting a lip, working […]

Homeschool Approved Resources

We spend a lot of time reading stories, comments, and questions from the Educents community. We see the excitement parents have for starting to homeschool and tackling big challenges at home.

Keeping Family Memories Alive and Organized

I have a favourite chair. It doesn’t belong to me. It sits in the corner of my parents’ house. Many years ago, it sat in the corner of my grandparents’ living room, right next to a shelf full of meticulously labeled photo albums dating back to the Second World War. Some of my earliest memories […]

Less Is More When It Comes to Schoolwork

After over 20 years of homeschooling (8 kids) with 8 years to go, I can’t help but have a very different perspective than when I started.  If only we could begin our journeys with that  wisdom.  Instead we have to make our own way, occasionally listening to those further down the road who are calling […]

Baked Maple Ribs

Today I’m sharing another effortless dinner recipe. If you can dump the contents of a bag into a pan, you can make these drool-inducing Baked Maple Ribs. Like a slow cooker recipe, these cook for a little while, but it is primarily passive cooking. There’s very little you have to do beyond simply sticking a […]

Are Your Kids Ready for a Library Card?

Every kid I know has one, but mine don’t. They think they’re so deprived, but I’m happy depriving my kids on this one. What, you may be asking, is it that my kids don’t have? Some electronic trinket? Something super-expensive? Nope. It’s actually something quite simple. My kids don’t have their own library cards. Are […]

Momma Are You Listening?

I saw you today when I was out running errands. Your little girl was sitting across the table from you in the food court. She was beautiful. Pretty little dress, bouncy curls, sparkling eyes. She could hardly keep still because she was so excited about whatever it was she was telling you.     Only […]

My Broken and Tattered Valentine

To My Precious Family on Valentine’s Day, I have an unconventional gift for you this year. It’s not a fun message incorporating candy bar labels or a platter of cookies lovingly frosted in pink and red. This Pinterest-loving mama doesn’t have anything crafty or adorable for you this Valentine’s Day. Instead, I have something broken […]
