Top 5: International Day Of Peace Activities

September 21st is International Day Of Peace and this years theme is “Shaping Peace Together”. I think that’s the best theme of all. World Peace is not a solo-endeavour. To even have a chance at achieving it we all have to be willing to think globally when making decisions. We need to think of people.…

Don’t call it a come back! I’ve been here for years…..well, we did take the Summer off! The morning air is crisp as hell and pumpkin scones are on the menu. Back-to school is here! I know some of you started somewhere over the last few weeks, but where I grew up we always started…

Top 5: Homeschool Essentials

Obviously I could make a list of a billion things that I’d love to have for homeschooling. When you join Facebook groups it’s easy to get caught up in what other families have as well. The thing is that you don’t need that much, a lot of it is just nice to have. Today I’m…

Book Report Worksheets

A solid Book Report can encourage reading comprehension, help understand broad concepts, and help a child learn about different story elements. That being said, they can also be a source of frustration for children which, in turn, can make them not want to read at all. I am very pro-reading for pleasure when it comes…

My Fave HS Resources

A few friends have asked about what we use in our day to day and I’m happy to help, but I want to remind parents to give themselves a break as well. No one expects you to transform into the perfect homeschooler overnight. That person doesn’t actually exist so don’t even worry about it! Even…

Back To Liiiife….

  (I took MANY photos. It did not go well….lolz) Back-to-school is upon us and we’re easing back in. The great thing about homeschool is that you don’t have to go all in right away. You can take your time and adjust to your new Autumn schedule in your own time. I know my kids…

Back To (Home)School

After a gloriously lazy Labour Day weekend, we are back on that Kindergarten grind! It was nice to start off with a short week, and we used some of that time for review and easing into our schedule. Scheduling is actually one of my favourite things about homeschooling. As I prepared and tweaked our schedule…

Choosing Homeschool

O turned 4 this year, and as some of you know, that means Junior Kindergarten in our province. (Yes, each province is different, and many schools only offer Senior Kindergarten). The idea of where our kids would spend the bulk of their time has been an ongoing issue since O was born (as I’m sure…
