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…

Winter Homeschooling

My home educator peeps know what’s up when I say Winter homeschooling is vastly different than the other Seasons. There’s always a point where it feels like Winter will never end, that you’ll be trapped inside forever, and cabin fever will take absolute hold. If you live in The Great White North, Winter can feel…

They have to bring everything home with them, including apple cores! I LOVE this rule. We homeschool so obviously we practice a litterless lunch everyday, but…

Out Of The Cave and Into The Pool

For us, Winter is about hibernation. We go sledding and stuff but we don’t schedule a lot of activities. I’m not going to be on time. I used to be an “early” person, but my kids don’t care about that. 4 snowsuits, 4 hats, 4 scarves, 8 boots, 8 mittens, I can’t. I just can’t…
