Traditional, Boxed, Complete Homeschooling Curriculum and How It Worked for Us!

My family chose to use a full curriculum in our homeschool, and we didn’t deviate. We homeschooled for over 20 years and successfully graduated 4 children without changing our base curriculum. We found this to be a great relief,  and it gave us more time to be a family. How did we do it? First […]

Celebrate National S’mores Day – 4 S’more Recipes

Just Desserts: My Son Teaches Me How to Teach

I got my just desserts, my comeuppance…all courtesy of my pre-teen son! That day—way back in my second year of homeschooling—it came as a stunning newsflash that my son wasn’t nearly as impressed as I with my teaching of history… Back then, you see, I would dutifully prepare by pre-reading the teacher notes in my […]

10 Tips for Homeschooling During a Remodel

Home remodels are stressful. If you’ve ever experienced one then you know nothing is where it should be – life is in complete disarray. Homeschooling makes things even tougher.

Five Benefits of Natural Learning

Dill Pickles, Hedgehogs, & Lemon Trees: Unexpected Keys to Supporting Kids with ADHD

I grew up in the denim jumpers and homemade bread era of homeschooling and wanted nothing more than to be like all the other cool kids who got to eat bologna sandwiches and wear jeans. As a second generation homeschooler, I came to the table with more than my fair share of things I was […]

DIY Portable Calendar Board

When our family moved last year, I was heartbroken to have to pack up our school room – for several reasons.  I had worked so hard to get it all set up just a short time before (we had only lived there 6 months before we learned we had to move for my husband’s job), […]

It’s actually a pretty healthy recipe too, when using good ingredients! For something kind of fun, here’s a puppy chow recipe which was a really […]

Make Friends with Your Inner Art Teacher

You know those nagging thoughts that get in the way of teaching art? I have no artistic talent. The only thing I can draw is a stick figure. I have no art background. How could I evaluate my children’s work? I have no time. Other subjects take too much time. My kids are not creative. […]
