Happy Monday everyone! This week in our homeschool we celebrated KK’s 8th birthday and had the first big family barbeque of the season. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that it’s finally Spring time and Summer is right around the corner! I also got to take a small trip out of town for a few days to see my very best friend and watch our favorite band in concert. Nothing soothes the soul more than dancing with your girlfriends to your favorite music! It’s...

car schooling learning outside the box

Sometimes schedules happen, and by that I mean something pops up that you forgot to write down in your planner and it needs to be taken care of right away. Usually that means everyone ends up piling up in the car, right in the middle of your school day. So much for school on those days huh? WRONG! Car-Schooling What if I told you that learning doesn’t have to stop when you get in the car? It’s true! You can still continue your school day as you’re our and about...

It’s Monday again, so you know what that means! It’s time for another link up party here at The Homeschool Nook! We’ve been on our “summer vacation” for the past two weeks but even while on break, prepping for next year is on the brain! We have been trying to cut out the curriculum and get creative with our lessons as much as possible. Its been an adjustment getting used to not busting out the workbooks! This weeks featured post was just what I needed...

teaching 5 important life skills while grocery shopping

We’ve all been there before. Desperately needing to go grocery shopping, but you haven’t finished school work for the day. Sometimes it feels like its impossible to get everything done in a day that needs to be done, that is, unless you know how to be creative with your to-do list. Today’s post is the first post in my “Learning Outside the Box” series, where I hope to inspire homeschooling moms with ideas on how to give your children a quality...

Last week was our first official week of “summer break”. I couldn’t be happier because honestly, momma needed a break! We’re all enjoying our time off so far and having no problems keeping busy, but I know it’s coming. The dreaded (and obnoxious) “I’m borgypsyed” comments. I usually try to, at the very least, get my girls involved in some sort of summer reading program to help curb the boredom. Featured Post: This week’s featured...

learning outside the box

One of the problems I have with public schools is that they treat education as if it should fit within a one-size-fits-all, type of box. That was the biggest struggle I had when I first started homeschooling. I felt like unless I was pouring over textbooks and having my kids write all of their answers on paper, then I wasn’t giving my kids a good, solid education. Throughout the past 5 years I’ve spent homeschooling, I’ve slowly but surely started to learn...

On Friday I shared about my favorite part about homeschooling as part of the 31 Reasons We Love Homeschooling Blog Party. I think the number one thing we as homeschoolers should always remember is that we have the ability to completely make our homeschool customized exactly how we want it. Often times we find ourselves playing the comparison game and feeling inadequate if we aren’t running our homeschool like everyone else. This week’s featured post reflects on this...

If there is one lesson I appreciate being taught by my parents the most as a child, its that being a hard worker would always pay off in the end. I was never the type of kid that was spoiled and had everything handed to me on a silver platter. I worked hard for everything I had. I was the kid who was waiting tables at the small town diner at the age of 11 because it was fun to me. If there was a big school trip coming up that I wanted to attend, you better believe I earned every...
