New Planner Flip Thru || DaySpring Planner 2018-19

It’s that time of year again! My new planner arrived at my doorstep and I squealed like a kid in a candy store! I have tried sooooo many planners in my lifetime. If you don’t know, I have quite the obsession with All Things Planning….planners, notebooks, journals, lists, office supplies, Bible Journaling. Throw in some books to read and some coffee and I am one happy girl. DaySpring gave me a planner to review for you, but as always, my…

A Bible Journal For Moms | FROM THE HEART Journal

Have you ever been too busy to spend time with God? Yeah, me too. It’s not that I don’t want to…I really, truly do. I crave that time with my Bible and the Lord. But as a busy homeschooling mom of 7, I know there is always something to do, always someone who needs something. I know, without a doubt, that if I spend time with God each day, he will bless that time abundantly and help me get through…

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…

Create a Homeschool Schedule That Works

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 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…

One of the most rewarding aspects of homeschooling is the ability to tailor your child’s education specifically to their needs. It’s the reason many families choose to homeschool in the first place! Whether it’s due to special need or a simply a desire for more flexibility, it’s wonderful to be able to choose what works for you and what doesn’t. Have you heard of love languages? Consider learning styles in the same light. We each see things through our own…
