Student Logbook

If a person has homeschooled for any amount of time, I can guarantee check off lists, spread sheets, and every planner known to man has probably been tried out. Organizing homeschool seems to be a never-ending battle. Finding something that actually works for the individual family (at least my family) is like finding a pot of gold….

Daily Planner

I am a procrastinator! I also have a TON on my plate. These two things don’t really jive well together. I have tried so many calendars to cure my scattered brain planning and follow through. But not many of these calendars truly help. This last month I was blessed with trying a new time management system…

This set is great for kids aged 6 all the way through…

Dysfunctional Homeschool

Since beginning homeschool I’ve noticed a trend from others who watch our life from afar. It has come to my attention that my family may have been put on a pedestal of some sorts. Onlookers assume we must be this super patient, put together, extraordinary family to be able to accomplish this thing called homeschool. I’ve…

Visual Latin

Upon entering into the homeschool life, the topic of Latin became a common area of conversation among my friends. When choosing a classical educational approach, Latin seems even more prominent. I wasn’t sure it was truly worth my time, but still, I was curious. Knowing that my children would eventually be required to take a…
