Holiday Themed Resources

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is on its way. It is one of my favorite holidays. I love watching my children’s face light up when I put out the decorations. I love our family tradition of picking out our Christmas tree together and decorating it each year with one new ornament. I also love being able to incorporate holiday themed resources into our homeschooling lessons. If you are like me, then you are already searching the web for fun themed ideas for the upcoming month. Below are a few resources I have found so far that you might like to use as well ;)

November is National Scholarship Month

National Scholarship Month is a Great time to start preparing for your highschooler's next step in education. As a homeschooling parent, I know it may seem far away, but before you know it, your once little boy or girl will be starting college either be dual enrolling or graduating highschool. 

You may think there are not many scholarships available or maybe you are not sure where to even start. Maybe you feel like you just do not have the time to weed through all the options, but you would be wrong! In fact, there are many websites devoted to listing and helping you find scholarships that will fit your needs, fast and easily. 
One of my favorites is from Their section on college information keeps their scholarship list updated; which makes it so much easier to find the newest scholarships available. Of course, scholarships are not the only thing one needs to do to prepare; you also need to find a college to attend. If you are looking for homeschool friendly colleges, Time4Learning has put together a great list to check out as well. 

Until Next Time...

Free Halloween Books for Kids!

Everyone :)

It's official, Halloween has arrived! Our family really enjoys getting to dress up and just have fun with all the other families in our town. However, until night time comes, kids can get a bit impatient waiting for the fun to start. Whether you are a homeschooling family or not, a great way to help keep them entertained and out of your hair untill time is finding something fun and hopefully educational, to keep them busy. Reading is always a great activity. Here are some free Halloween themed books on YouTube that your kids can enjoy today. ~> Below are a few of my favorites ;)

Wanting more activities to do?  Carving a pumpkin is always a fun time tested tradition. (You could also make it more like painting games and have your kids paint the faces on a pumpkin. We have done this in past, especially when my kids were too little to carve a pumpkin on their own. It is always alot of fun and if you can use glow in the dark paints, then they will light up at night.) 

Until Next Time...

Fall Themed Home-School Fun!

It is officially fall! I just love this time of year. The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing, and I get to add fun fall themed activities to my homeschool curriculum . There are just so many options out there: You can go on a nature walk and collect different fall leaves (which can be used later for a fall craft ). Learning how to make fall food items is always fun and delicious ;p


Of course, there are fall crafts, books, educational sites, and worksheets you can incorporate too (check out Pinterest, they have tons of fall themed boards) Plus, manyy towns will have fun fall festivals that sometimes have educational aspects to them you can check out as well. 

Until Next Time…
                                                        Happy Fall!

Hi Everyone... I'm Back!!!

Hi, I know it has been quite some time since I have posted any new blog entries, and for that I am so sorry, but I am back and ready to share my homeschooling adventures with you all. To start this new school year off fresh, I decided to do a blog make over (I hope you all like it!)

     If you haven’t already, Please grab my new button for your blog ;)


For those who are wondering where I have been. Well, as you may have read in the past, we not only home-school, but from time to time we are roadschooling too. We have been on the road the past few months, which has been a lot of fun, but it has kept us SUPER busy as well. Homeschooling on the road is always so interesting and is always an unique learning experience. It is one thing to read about places and see pictures, but being there in person is something new altogether.

Before I go, I want to share this Great Labor Day Themed Pinterest board, with you. It is full of fun, educational resources, which would make a perfect addition to your homeschool day ;)

Until Next Time...

We wish you all a Happy Labor Day!

Our 2015 Homeschool Year

Yes! I am still here. I know it has been awhile since I have written, but when
your a homeschool mom, sometimes you just don't even have enough "ME"
time to blog like you want.

Anyways, on another note, it is hard to believe that 2015 is already over. It has been a good homeschooling year for us. My oldest has declared her future career goals. If I understand correctly, she wants to be doing something in animation. So, for Christmas we invested in some good drawing software and a graphics writing tablet for her. She has also turned a corner in her Math; which is great! I wasn't sure if the extra practice and math games would help, as some people just never get math, but for her I guess she just need some time.

My youngest is doing well too. He has always done well in math and is about two grade levels ahead at the moment. He has also gotten so much better in his reading fluency, which has been a stressful area for me as a parent, the past couple of years. Thankfully, he has turned a corner and is flourishing. I exspect 2016 homeschooling year to be just as great. So, what do I have planned for 2016? Well in addition to what we already do, I  plan to dive into more science exsperiments with my youngest. He is so curious right now. Also, since my daughter will be turning 15 this year, I hope to start her in college classes. I hope your 2015 was great and I hope your 2016 will be even better.

Until Next time...
