2020/2021 Relaxed Homeschool Routine and Curriculum for 7 Kids!

Since our first day #backtohomeschool is now three days away, today I posted our planned routine and curriculum for the 7 school age kids I have left. It feels like only yesterday I was still homeschooling 10. Time really does fly.

Don’t Quit Homeschooling Because of Your Curriculum!

A word of advice for all the new homeschool moms excitedly planning out their upcoming year – don’t give up on homeschooling because of your curriculum.

Homeschool Language Arts Curriculum Choices for 7 Kids

Now that we’ve finished another homeschool year, it’s time to start thinking about the next one, which for us is next month.

Today on my channel I shared our language arts choices for our 7 remaining homeschooled kids.

What I’ve Learned About Housekeeping While Homeschooling

Before we started homeschooling, I was a complete neat freak, and I prided myself on it. Making the transition to having my kids home all the time meant making some changes not only to my routine, but to my expectation of perfection.

Today on my channel, I shared a video from my Patreon archives: What I’ve Learned About Housekeeping While Homeschooling.

Our Homeschool Is Changing! Our New Curriculum Reveal!

Last week, I announced that there will be some changes in our homeschool. This is the first week we started implementing them, and so far, so good.

Today on my channel I shared all the new resources I’ve been so excited to use.

Our Newest Funschooling Books!

I mentioned last week in a video that we’re changing things up in our homeschool. One of the things we’re doing differently is notebooking. Instead of our typical notebooking loop, all of my kids will have a Funschooling journal. They’re such a hit with my teens that I couldn’t resist.

Today on my channel, I did a flip-through of the Funschooling journals my littles and middles will be using.

“I Can’t Afford to Homeschool.” | Let’s Talk About Priorities

I’ve held this in for a long time. In the past several months, I’ve encountered so many people who are upset over the state of our schools, whether it’s due to vaccine mandates, inappropriate curriculum, bullying, pedophiles school employees, etc. That’s completely understandable. People SHOULD be upset.

Unfortunately, most of these parents say they’re interested in homeschooling, only to instantly blow it off because they can’t live on one full time income.
I get it. There are a small number of people for which this is true…and I say very small. For the rest, their priorities could use some readjusting.

As a mom of 11, I KNOW how hard it is to live on one income. It’s a struggle, but in the end it comes down to what’s important.

Your possessions? Or your children?
