The new school year has begun for many of you. For most that means you’re back to being everything to everyone — wife, mom, teacher. It’s a tall order. Not to mention you’re trying to cover all the bases academically, while struggling to make sure Susie gets enough of the art she loves, Johnny gets to enough science experiments, and the baby Lucy has plenty of safe tummy time. Don’t forget Mom needs to get enough exercise, quiet time, and a shower now and then. And, of course, meals need to be planned and cooked and the dishes are still waiting. It can be quite a juggling act.
Inquiring minds want to know, don’t they? How do you fit it all in? Come along as members of the Crew answer that question for you, each in their own unique way.
Jennifer @ White Trash Mama — Thank Heaven for Husbands
“I finally sat down and wrote my subjects out on cards. I’m a visual learner and I needed to see what I was doing. I divided the different subjects by their type: Disciplinary vs. Inspirational. “
Gwen @ Tolivers To Texas — A Day at Our House
“One Year Adventure Novel and one-on-one reading with Mom is coming up later in the afternoon. Plus diaper changing, nose wiping, fight solving, and I need to collect the materials for John to do the science project with the kids later this evening, and…what on earth am I going to make for supper?”
Lori @ Special Connection Homeschool — Our Schedule
“Many people want to know what a typical homeschool day looks like for us. Well, OK around my house no day is generally typical, but here is what we strive for. “
Patsy @ Ms. B’s Bonnet — 3 Keys to Fitting It All In
“Any sense of accomplishment and success in education, homeschooling or otherwise, is in the basic, foundational approach. In reality there are just 3 key skills that will actually unlock everything else your student will ever need to study.”
Jennifer @ A Glimpse of Our Life — A Day in the Life
“Homeschool for us is a lifestyle. We turn everyday events and special occasions into educational opportunities.”
April @ Eclectic Montage — Homeschool Juggling Act
Julie @ Creatin’ Classical Chaos — Our Bucket is Overflowing!
“As homeschoolers we know that there are certain academic things we need to teach or children. What has taken me a while to get is that I first need to teach to and train my childrens hearts.”
Kayla @ Arroowood Zoo — Getting It Done — Worth It or Not?
“Fitting in all in your day might honestly not be a good thing. Hear me out.
Marcy @ Ben and Me — Our Homeschool Days
“Because we are primarily delight-directed, things can change on a dime. There are few constants though, and one thing I am planning to try to be more diligent about is sticking to a daily Monday–Friday schedule.“
