A Day in the Life of an Eclectic Homeschool

A Day in the Life of an Eclectic Homeschool

Today, Vicki is giving us a peek into her home and sharing what a homeschooling day with her 5th, 4th and 2nd graders {and an 18 month old} looks like. Our homeschool is eclectic. We use a variety of curricula for our 5th, 4th, and 2nd graders. We are going through a season of change in our homeschool, as well. But I have already written about that. Today, I am going to share a day in our life. As I share my day, please remember we are a work in progress and few days actually look the … [Read more...]

Do You Feel Like You’ve Failed?

Today's post comes from my friend, Stacey, she is sharing from her heart about those days when we feel defeated. Take a few minutes and let her sweet words encourage you.

Are You a Slave to Christ?

This post from my friend, Wendy - Following in His Footsteps, will challenge you in your relationship with Christ. Enjoy!! Last fall the leaders of our church were speaking about servanthood. They did a series, actually, that lasted 8 weeks. Only, our pastors did not actually use the term servanthood so much as the word slavery. I have to tell you, I was intrigued! Now, before you get up in arms, let me explain. They were not talking about the kind of slavery that we have experienced in … [Read more...]

Showing Grace with Silly Fun

Today's post is from my friend, Heather from Homeschooling on Faith & Coffee. I think you'll enjoy this post. It speaks straight to the heart of mothers. We had a fun Valentine's Day this year. I made a special breakfast for my guys, Hubby brought home red roses and chocolate cake (good man!) and I gave Billy a special Valentine's Day "present" - I took him to Chuck E. Cheese's. Billy asks to go to Chuck E. Cheese's nearly every day. In his 5 year old world it's the ultimate fun place. … [Read more...]

When Your Homeschooling Day Isn’t Going As Planned

three choices

Today's post is written by my sweet friend, Heather, from Homeschooling on Faith and Coffee. It happens. It happens to me; it'll happen to you - but don't throw in the towel yet. It was on one of those days where we were going to do a more structured lesson (we are usually delight-directed, but we've got to cover the basics). I prepared a craft and had a strategy. I was ready to go. So I said "Billy, are you ready for lesson time?" He came over to my desk and said "okay mom, today's … [Read more...]
