If you're a mom who has a child who struggles with reading, listen up.

I know how hard it is to find time to work with your child with reading practice. It's exhausting to keep encouraging them when they stumble.

It's easy to want to give up.

I found a solution that's lightening my load, and I think it will work for you, too.

BuddyBooks has been an amazing addition to our homeschool daily work, I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Games for Learning: A Trekking Through History Review 09/14/2022

Homeschool mommas, are you having trouble staying motivated? (me, too!)

Want to keep your kids engaged and learning, even on the days when you don't feel like pulling out the lesson plans?

Board games are a perfect way to learn without putting a pen to paper.

We're loving this BRAND NEW Trekking Through History game from Underdog Games. It's perfect for ages 10 and up.

How about sharing some homeschooling hacks? Some ways to make our jobs as homeschooling moms easier and more effective?

I've been trying to hand some of our homeschooling off to my husband, but I had to figure out a system that made sense for him. I keep most of my homeschooling plans in my head --- which is just fine for me most days, but he can't read my mind.

We've been using BookShark Virtual alongside our BookShark Science Level C and it's working beautifully. It's so easy for Brett to pick up and go, with the lesson plans contained right in the online management system. ā­ļø

As the kids get older, I can totally see them using this to help hone executive functioning skills and take ownership of assignments.

How do you keep track of all the moving parts in your homeschool?

Ok mommas --- let's talk about college planning. šŸ˜±

We're on a slow on-ramp over here, because ---- so many irons in the fire, right?

What's important to you, as a homeschool mom?

Small classes? šŸ“š
Distance from home?
Specific majors?
Urban vs rural location? āœ”ļø

I'm starting to make my college list over here and found Thiel College. It's VERY homeschool friendly, with over 60 majors and 100+ clubs, activities and organizations. (they also offer an equine minor, which is important in our family) Plus, there's a brand new accelerated Bachelors/Masters pathway - woot, woot!

Let's chat in the comments about college planning and research. I'd love to hear your best tips!

This cute fellow is so excited that his mom finally agreed to formal science lessons. šŸ˜†

I didn't think science was entirely necessary in the early years, but this guy is obsessed with all things science. šŸ”¬šŸ”­šŸ§«šŸ§¬

We are LOVING our BookShark Science Level C, that teaches science through read alouds and plenty of hands on experiments.

Click over and read all about it.

It's a re-gram today, in honor of one of my all-time favorite saints. (I know, I say that a LOT)

Years ago, when choosing a name for a wee Kennedy baby, we decided on Catherine, for Saint Catherine of Siena.

I'll be the first to admit that I didn't know that much about her, but over the years have learned more and more, and know that giving my fiery Maeve her saint name was utterly perfect.

Thank you, St Catherine of Siena, for your example.

"Proclaim the truth and do not be silent through fear.ā€
