Can you believe the new school year is just around the corner?



If you’re a homeschooling mom, you’re probably busy getting curriculum ordered and organized, stocking up on school supplies, writing out lesson plans, and wondering how you’re going to pull it all off!  {Or am I the only mama who wonders that?}


Or, if you’re like me and do year-round school, you might just be ready for a little break!






I am heading into our fifth week of homeschooling this year with my four “big kids”.  This year finds us doing school with a fourth grader, second grader, Kindergartener, and a preschooler.  {Thankfully, our baby is content to snuggle in my lap or snooze in his swing during school time.}


This is our sixth year to homeschool, so I’m well aware of the rewards and challenges of educating your children at home.  I’d like to share a few of my favorite homeschooling resources, in hopes that these products, websites, and articles will bless and encourage you!

  1. Kristy,
    I loved homeschooling our children and I particularly miss it at thsi time of year! I was a visionary planner and love different curriculum. We loved Saxon along with D.I.V.E. by Dr. David Shoreman and Apologia for science! I can’t wait to see the eBook!! May it do well and bless many!!
    God bless you!
