Delight-directed Homeschoool Learning in December With CurrClick

December is a hard month for homeschooling in our house. The days leading up to Christmas seem so busy to me and all I really want is to just slow down, bake cookies, and stare at the twinkle lights on my Christmas tree. Not to mention, we’re all starting to feel a little homeschool burnout […]

Nature Walk Bag

One component of our homeschooling is nature walks. We get outside, enjoy fresh air, and learn about the world around us. We often have several things we need to carry with us for our nature walk time. Instead of packing and unpacking a bag every week, I set up a Nature Walk Bag with some […]

Viking Ship Craft for Kids

While learning about Vikings during our Viking Unit Study, the kids wanted to make a Viking ship.

Simple Science Experiment for Kids: Testing for Air

I’ve pulled together all of the best Christopher […]

2014 Back-to-Homeschool Photos

It’s hard to believe I’m starting my third year “officially” homeschooling! I’ve been working on planning and getting familiar with our 2014 curriculum for a while (hello, tax returns), but I just didn’t have the heart to pull the kids away from summer yet. Well, that, and we’re still finding our new normal after an […]

It’s hard to believe I’ll have a child in 2nd grade, Kindergarten, and in Tot school! {affiliate links have been […]

The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas

Y’all. It’s been the busiest and craziest summer ever. BIG things have happened–an emergency adoption, basement remodeling, an eBook. Lots. I’m so full of things to tell you and pictures to show you that I’m about to burst. But first, I have to tell you about the eBook because I fiddle-farted around and didn’t hint […]
