Earn A FREE Essential Oil Starter Kit!

Interested? The Young Living Premium Starter Kit is a FAVORITE of many, with me included! As far as I’m concerned, it is the only way you should get started using essential oils. It is how I got started using my essential oils a few years ago. It is a tremendous savings….I couldn’t believe it when I started. I was initially only going to purchase a few oils…and those oils added up to the cost of the starter kit…which included a…

Planning For The Unexpected In Your Homeschool

We have been through a lot over these last 10 days, haven’t we? We have created all these plans for our homeschool, from our goals to our schedules to our schoolroom and homemaking. What happens when things don’t go as planned? Gasp, I know! As a natural planner, it is hard to imagine. But at some point, a child (or six) will fall sick, you may find yourself in the throws of morning sickness, or that perfect curriculum you chose…

Home Management Tips for Homeschool Moms

Home Management Tips for Homeschool Moms

Yesterday we discussed managing our time as homeschooling moms, and today we are diving into home management. Managing the home will be harder as a homeschool mom than if your children were out of the house all day. However, managing our homes well is possible, it just takes a bit more effort and creativity. Nothing in my home is Pinterest worthy. If you saw my schoolroom, you’ll know that it isn’t all matching white furniture and perfectly placed curriculum and…

Time Management Tips for Homeschool Moms

Time Management for Homeschool Moms - 10 days of homeschool planning

Hey mamas… This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I thrive on productivity and frequently write about it, but likely not in the way you are thinking. To me, time management and productivity mean being realistic…not… “getting it all done.” Before I give you my time management tips for homeschool moms, I want you to know that this post will not be about ways you can fit 28 hours into your 24 hour day. This…

Now, there have been times and seasons where I am just flying by the seat of my pants, and we have gotten by just fine.

Homeschool Teacher Organization and Record Keeping

homeschool curriculum - Sonlight curriculum

Homeschool organization is one of those topics we love to discuss as homeschool moms. Teacher storage and homeschool record keeping is just as important, if not more, than student organization. We can have a perfectly designed homeschool room, but if you have no organization as a teacher, that won’t matter much, will it? I tend to be pretty simple when it comes to my homeschool organization. I am teaching 4 students now and will add more in the years to…

THE ALL IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR HOMESCHOOL MOMS…. How do I choose the right homeschool curriculum for my child? Before we get into the how to, I want you to know that there is no perfect homeschool curriculum. Yes, I said that. There really is no all encompassing, one size fits all curriculum. To expect that there is is unrealistic and will set you up for a lot of disappointment. Homeschooling is constantly changing – curriculums change, your children change, you…

We have been a one income family since my oldest child was born, so I am accustomed to finding ways to save money to help out my family. I have learned a few things that…
