This week was full of field trips and playing catch up in between. While I absolutely love the field trips, I’m not a fan of the chaos that forms the rest of the week. If I could schedule every field trip on our Friday Funday’s I absolutely would! Last Week in Our Homeschool This weeks first field trip was to the St. Louis History Museum for the first homeschool day of the year. We have been to the History Museum before, and the kids named it their favorite museum...

Are you tired of teaching math multiple times a day to each of your homeschooled children? What if I said there was a way to teach math one time to all of your students 6th grade and down? Today’s guest post from Danielle at Blessedly Busy outlines how to use a textbook you already have to teach your family math. Who Should be in Your New Math Class? Earlier, I said 6th grade and down.

This week was our first week of school for the 2016-2017 school year. After a very long summer (that didn’t really feel like summer til the end), it felt good to finally feel like we were back to some form of productivity. While I’m struggling to get back into my regular routine of getting up on time (night owls unite!), we surprisingly did very well with staying on schedule! Last Week in Our Homeschool We had a great week, and it felt so good knowing that I had everything...

bouncy bands

Raise your hand if your kids can’t seem to sit still. You can’t see it, but I’m waving both hands frantically in the air while jumping up and down over here! Moe (age 9) especially cannot seem to sit still for more than five seconds. As someone who suffers from anxiety, I get so irritated with her so easily because the constant wiggling around stresses me out. That was until we discovered Bouncy Bands.

My girls love art projects. It seems like we have at least one art project going on every day in our homeschool. Whether they are learning how to draw from watching YouTube videos, or building their favorite Pokemon characters out of play-doh, my kitchen table is always filled with some kind of art project. When I was given the opportunity to review the IDO3D Vertical 3D Pen, I knew my girls would be excited! *Disclaimer: I received this product for free to try, and was compensated...
