Dear Homeschool Mom, You Are Not Enough

Have you ever met a stranger and told them you were a homeschool mother and then they responded by saying wow I could never do it all. Well, I've never looked at what I do as this huge important job because it's just something we've decided to do that was best for our family. We made this decision and we're sticking to it.

Halloween Printable Pack for K to Grade 2

Fun halloween printables for your K to Grade 2 child

Just in time for the 31st, I created a Halloween printable pack for Kindergarten to grade 2. I say it's for K to grade 2 but I'm sure some of it can be done by preschoolers.

My first grader loves worksheets, he can blow through a whole lot of them in a very short amount of time. I personally learn best with … [Read more...]

My kids think I'm the worst homeschool mom out there, if they only knew

If you ever had a conversation with my kids you would probably think that I am the worst homeschool mom ever. However, when asked what reasons lie behind their accusations, you'd have to disagree.
