This week has been full of summer fun so far! Even though lil sis is down and out with a nasty virus (complete with a horrendous cough), we’ve still been able to get in a little bit of time outdoors! This is my favorite time of year because it’s firework season! Every year this small town that I have grown up in throws an awesome two day festival full of craft vendors, carnival rides, food trucks and yep – fireworks! We love to head to the “Extravaganza”...

The summer heat is brutal already this year and while I’m normally cooped up inside (being the homebody I am), this week I was out running the girls to and from their American Heritage Girls summer camp, along with other errands. The girls had a blast though, earning three new badges: Marine Biology, Emergency Preparedness, and Survival Search and Rescue. While the big girls were away at camp, me and lil’ sis did a lot of shopping, errands, and dance parties! We...

summertime guest post

Being a homeschool mom can be hard. I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but it seems like as soon as the first day of school arrives I’m already counting down the days to my summertime break. There’s nothing like a good, relaxing summer to help you recharge your batteries and fill your cup. Today  my friend Heather from Weller Momma Blog is guest posting here to share her list of 65 different ways you can recharge this summer! I am so thrilled to...

Hope everyone has been having a great week so far! We’ve been keeping busy here with dance parties, pool time, and prepping for the girls summer camp that’s coming up next week. All in all, a typical summer week here at Roberts Academy! Hopefully you’ve been enjoying your summer just as much as we have! If you’ve been doing anything fun or creative, please share about it in the comments. I would love to hear all about it! Now that it’s Monday, it’s...

top 5 deals for dad's day

Our homeschool would not be able to function with the hubsterdude. Not only is he the man of our house and helps me play good cop/bad cop when the ladies get out of hand, but he helps me play the role of teacher in so many ways as well. Without having him around to help me on those days where I just can’t brain any further, or helping me further explain scientific stuff in a better way (since he’s the science buff around here), things would be a million times harder. As...

How is everyone doing this week? I’m in recovery mode around here! Between all of the birthdays we’ve been celebrating, (KK, Boo Butt, and Myself, plus my brother, my sister in law, and my niece! That’s only counting the family with birthdays that’s local!), two different out of town trips, and end of the school year stuff with the girls, this mom is whooped! That being said, it’s Monday again, so you know what that means! We’re so glad you...

foundational learning for summer

Well, it’s finally June! I’m so happy to see summer months around the corner, because that means fun in the sun in our homeschool! Luckily, summer break doesn’t have to stop being educational, and that’s one of my favorite parts of homeschooling! Keep reading to see how we can implement foundational learning this Summer! Foundational Learning for Summer I love the idea of longer summer days for doing a deep dive into foundational learning – and of...

I hope everyone has had a good Memorial Day Weekend so far! We decided to take an impromptu overnight trip to Branson, Missouri while the hubsterdude had some time off from work. Of course we decide to be spontaneous as we are trying to wrap up an already crazy month of May! But, with road trips comes a lot of educational experiences, so I’m definitely not complaining! But I wont lie, I’m more than excited to see June coming. This crazy mama needs a break! To those...

5 strategies that help me get things done

“How do you do it all?” I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have been asked that question in my lifetime. If you’re a veteran reader over here in all of my chaos you know that I’m a woman of many trades. Having so many tasks on my plate makes it difficult, if not impossible, to get things done. Not only do I homeschool and run a blog (or three), but I also run my own Etsy shop and virtual assistant business. My go-to response seems to always...

6 sticker sets to make summer learning stick educents

Hands on learning is extremely important in our homeschool. When my kids can actually experience what they are learning rather than just read about it in a textbook, the lessons seem to stick with them longer and have lasting impressions. Our favorite time to utilize hands on learning is during the summer! Spending time out in nature, or on family vacations help our kids learn quality life skills that will stay with them forever that they would forget within 5 minutes if only...
