The Year-Round Schedule That Saved Our Homeschool

Back-to-school time is here for both traditional school students and a good portion of homeschoolers. 

When we first started out on this journey, I thought I was obligated to follow the public school schedule for our district, so that’s exactly what I did. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the best fit for us, and it ultimately contributed to my bout with homeschool burnout in which I gave up and sent my kids back to school for two years.

Worst. decision. ever.

Fortunately, when I came to my senses and pulled my kids back out, I was armed with a new philosopy of homeschooling and a new schedule.

Today I’m going to share that schedule with you. 🙂


Homeschooling and education are my passion. It is my fervent hope to one day devote more time to creating content for you. If you’re interested in helping to make this a reality, consider supporting me on Patreon.

Thank you so much. I appreciate each and every one of you!
