When you think of an ungrateful child what do you think of? Do you think of a child that expects things? Grumbles or throw tantrums when they can’t have what they want? Is unappreciative for what they do have? Wants more, more, more? It’s not a pretty picture is it? Unfortunately, when we live in a country […]
Do you love using books and stories to help build character in your children but don’t always have the time or energy to read aloud to them? Read alouds with your kids can be so wonderful but I’m guessing that, like me, you have a long list of to-do’s and can’t always get to it. Audiobooks are such a great option as you can get a few minutes to breathe as you listen along with your children.
Are you starting to look into colleges with your homeschooled high schooler? While it may feel like an overwhelming task at times, thankfully there are some great college options for homeschooled children, including colleges that seek out homeschoolers.
Finding a writing curriculum that is a good fit for your homeschool isn’t always an easy task. For our own homeschool, writing is an area that I’ve struggled to find the right resources for my 9-year-old. We’ve tried a few different things that made me feel like I was just “winging it” and left me wondering if he was learning all that he could and should be.

Grocery shopping, dishes, cleaning, ten more loads of laundry.
Picking up toys (where in the world did all those toys come from anyways??).
As I saw the news come through on my Instagram feed I couldn’t believe it. Was I really reading this correctly? Did this sweet momma and several family members really die in a house fire the night before? What devastating news.
I’m not sure how long this sale will last but right now Amazon has some wonderful children’s books at 50% or more off the regular price! These are really great prices for books to add to your home library or for gifts.
As a homeschooler I have learned the importance of me finding ways to enjoy our studies as much as the children do. After all, there won’t be much joy or excitement in our homeschool if the teacher is b.o.r.e.d.
Instilling a love for reading and learning. Making beautiful memories with our children. Helping them grow their faith while growing our own. These are the things important to many homeschoolers. And finding a top-notch reading and language arts curriculum to meet these objectives is extremely important.
You’ve decluttered, organized your homeschool paperwork, books and supplies and now it’s time to sustain your progress. Even if you aren’t to the point of perfect organization, that’s ok. You need a system for sustaining right from the start!
