We’ve all been there as homeschoolers.
“Mom, this is boooooring.”
“Mom, I hate math.” *Foot stomps* “I’m not doing it!”Continue reading “What to Do When Your Child Won’t Do the Work”
I’ve been at this homeschooling gig for 15 plus years. After a few turns around the sun our years started taking a very predictable course. Maybe you can relate.
August – I get caught up in the school supply sales (love me some paper products! LOL) and rah-rah of a new school year about to start. Continue reading “The ups and downs of my homeschooling year” →
(Times are approximate. I’m severely Type B, after all.)
Technically, the first day of school was supposed to be this Tuesday, the day after Labor Day. That was the day my other kids started high school outside the home so it made sense to me. However, some day in July it made sense to me to make a long doctor’s appointment for my son on Tuesday. Not sure what I was thinking…but it worked out in the end. It was even a good visit – we don’t have to go back until December, and his joints are looking good! (Thanks to lots of horrible drugs /insert scowly eye roll here).

Did you ever wonder what other homeschoolers think about homeschooling and how they run their days? Well, Amanda from Sicily’s Heart and Home is doing a great Homeschool Interview Series and today is my turn!
Head on over to today’s post to hear me ramble on some more about our crazy homeschool, successes and failures, burnout, and a typical day. Honestly, I could go on and on about it here, but apparently I went on and on about it over there, so I will spare you. 😉
Hope to see you there! Have a wonderful day!

Is there a word for a non-update?

Well, life had other ideas, Continue reading “Reboot Update” →
Do rainy days get you down? I have a love-hate relationship with them, I think.
I love a good thunderstorm, a really dense fog (as long as I don’t have to be out in either), and whoever invented “thundersnow” should get a medal. Continue reading “Rainy Days and Thursdays” →
With five children, I tend to get “talked out” fairly quickly – not only their talking to me and to each other, but my own talking as well. I get tired of the sound of my own voice rattling in my ears, and love to have something to hand the children that is educational but keeps me out of it for the most part.
Welcome to my series on homeschooling through the holidays as a highly sensitive homeschooler.
Today is Day 1 – Homeschooling.
It’s no secret that homeschooling can sometimes be difficult for a highly sensitive person under normal conditions. Continue reading “Surviving the Holidays Part 1 – The Homeschooling” →
