Although it seems like the school year just ended, it’s time most of us are preparing for the fall semester in our homeschools. The vast majority of homeschool conventions are over and we’ve all been able to look over all the different types of curriculum. You may have already purchased or ordered some new books for the year.

I loved planning my school year. The planning seemed to be easier than actually teaching the lessons. Teaching isn’t so black and white, but moms must be flexible and ready to make changes or improvise when the lessons aren’t working.

Your child may just look at you in a funny way to say, I don’t know what you’re saying at all! Or they may need many extra practice lessons or review lessons in order to master a topic or level. Homeschool moms are blessed because we don’t have to keep 30 children on the same page. We can let our children learn at their own pace.

This was one of the favorite things I loved during the homeschool years. Although my children have graduated and have their own families, I still love thinking about the times we spent together. Homeschooling was a time of growth for us all. My children were growing, of course, but I also grew in knowledge and wisdom during those years.

I hope to be able to help my grandchildren as they homeschool or helping them with homework (if they attend a brick school). When you think about what you will teach your children this fall, think about the future. What do you want to say at the end of their years at home? I want my legacy to be one of learning and of love.

Are you ready for a new (home) school year?

It’s that time of year, when many homeschoolers are busy preparing for a brand new school year.  Some of you may have already started your new year, and some of you may have never stopped! Planning for a new school year and finalizing curriculum choices can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful, especially when you are trying to stick to a tight homeschool budget.

I’ve gotten together with a great group of bloggers to make getting ready for your new school year just a little bit easier and hopefully a little less stressful for you.  How does $200 sound in helping you buy curriculum, books, games, puzzles, and educational supplies?

I totally agree about leaving a legacy of learning and love to and through my children. When we decided to homeschool our children, our desire was to instill in them the love for learning. It was and still is a fulfilling and enriching journey for our family since.
