Homeschool Mom Tag

I thought it would be fun to do a Homeschool Mom Tag especially since everyone is planning and thinking about next year! I am answering the 10 questions below.    Homeschool Mom Tag Questions: Do you have a set budget for your homeschool? 1. Were you homeschooled? 2.

Does your spouse help, outsource help, tutors, etc. 5. Where is … [Read more...]

Stupid Mistake + Where Have I Been???

Have you ever made a stupid mistake? Or is that even the word I'm looking for?!? Not like picking your kids up late from their practice or putting on the wrong shoes or putting salt in your coffee instead of sugar. Maybe the word I am thinking is irresponsible, foolish, "mom" brainless, the other kazillion of words that could be the right word. I almost lost my blog a while back and it was my OWN fault.

I shared with you some of my favorite things one time last year, before I got terrible morning sickness which then lead to having that baby (at home)! And that's why I slowed way down on posting on this blog. So in less than two years, we added two more kiddos. We're now happily a family of SIX!! Anyhow, like I mentioned over a year ago, I love … [Read more...]

What’s in our Morning Basket? {Plus our read-alouds}

Going from part-time homeschooling to full-time homeschooling is going to be a transition for all of us. We haven't ever done a morning basket (or morning time, some might call it circle time) before, but looking forward to getting started this year.  The purpose of using a morning basket is to start your day off with truth, goodness and beauty. With the things that matter the most! Which are being together, reading and talking about Jesus, reading scripture, diving into rich literate … [Read more...]
