Grab a cuppa and come join us for some homeschool Mom encouragement as we share some of the gems we’ve discovered to help us navigate the homeschool road.

Chareen @ Every Bed of Roses shares
- Dear Mom who is Feeling overwhelmed – Taking on too many things that seemed to be right almost crippled our homeschool. I had to learn to do homeschool uniquely for my family and not fit other families expectations onto mine.
- How Important is Alone Time and Home Schooling ? – Looking after the most important person of the homeschool is vital to the success of your journey. It’s an ongoing lesson for me even after twenty years of home educating.
- One Step at a Time – Homeschooling is more than education. It’s about a journey. It’s a journey that you, your spouse, your children and extended family are on. This journey is more like a marathon than a sprint and as such you need to learn to pace yourself.
- Can you fit it ALL in during the High School Years? – How am I going to fit it all in ? Oh dear how am I going to homeschool high school alongside homeschooling the others? Fostering Independence…? What sort of schedule do I need ? Let’s tackle each of these questions…

Kirsten @ DoodleMom’s Homeschooling Life shares
- Pretend You Are Relaxed Until It Is True – I think that getting to relaxed is the key to great homeschooling. That seems hard, but I found a way that works. So don’t worry, just pretend and eventually you will get there.
- Slowing Down To Breathe – Slowing down can be so hard. But if you don’t take a moment every so often to breathe, time spins along and the next thing you know, your kids are grown and those moments are gone. So try it. Who cares if the dishes don’t get done? What matters is that you are relaxed and together you and your kids are enjoying homeschooling and being together. I know you can do it!
- Getting Out Joyfully – One of the ways we homeschool is getting out, joyfully. I have read countless blog posts about getting your homeschooled kids out to explore the world. Have you? There is a common theme among all the different choices and possibilities for getting out: Joyfully.
Marla @ Jump Into Genius Putting Mistakes in Their Place – Sometimes we give mistakes too much power. Don’t let them take you down.
