It’s a good way to end the school day when listening to @hamiltonmusical fits with your History assignment. #hamilton #homeschoolperks #thebattleofyorktown #rockinresources
School work and homework done....UNO!!!! And, a rousing game at that😉 #arithmetic #humor #bellylaughs #boymom #homeschoolperks #afternoon #fun #blueeyes #games
During lunch i hear, “ahhh this is so relaxing” and look over to see this 🤪 #relaxation #homeschool #homeschoolperks
When you’ve spent a fun, long weekend together and just can’t bear to see Daddy leave for work... you just go with him, and do school in the car! 💛#homeschoolperks #mycrew #lifeiseducation #schoolwhereverweplease #homeschoolselfie
FINALLYYYY... it’s feeling like Fall here in California today! 🌬🍂Praise Jesus! 🙌🏼 Lol! That means we are running errands in the cool of the day & gettin to homeschool later than usual. Love the freedom to enjoy the weather, grocery shop in a nearly empty store, AND maybe sneak in some fall front porch decor shopping! 🤷🏻‍♀️😉 Already had my Starbucks fall flavored cup of coffee this am! Can’t hurt to hit Starbucks later though, lol! 🍂☕️😆👍🏼 . . . #homeschooldays #homeschoolperks #homeschoolfreedom #homeschool #homeschoolers #homeschoolersofinstagram #homschooling #homeschoollife #homeschoolmama #fall #pumpkinspiceeverything
My Papi living his best life at 72 years young. My kids are incredibly blessed to grow up with him around. Happy Birthday to the strongest man I know. 😍🎉🎂 #slinkydogdash #makingmemories #homeschoolperks #frontrowlife #WALTersdoDISNEY
With sickness in the house (again😖), i’m feeling especially grateful today for studious 3 year olds, ginger root decoctions, $3 thrifted boardgame treasures, and gentle homeschool rhythms 🙌🏼🙌🏼 #homeschoolperks #gameschooling #earthschooling #waldorfhomeschool #homeschoolroom #invitationtocreate #motherculture
Today we learned about The Declaration of Independence. So, of course we had to make some ink out of raspberries and use one of Honors feathers as a quill. Her collecting feathers came in handy today:)
Exploring Creation with Chemistry Review "My high schooler loves @apologiaworld Exploring Creation with Chemistry and is often caught with the book at any time during the day or night. My homeschool mama heart is happy that he is loving science. And I am so pleased that his need for more scientific learning is being met." by Tricia of @hodgepodgemom : https://thecurriculumchoice.com/apologia-exploring-creation-chemistry-review/ #thecurriculumchoice #homeschoolinghighschool #homeschoolreview
Woke up with more of the same...building magnetic structures. #engineering #steam #science #magnetic #pjs #building #homeschoolperks #girlsinstem #stemgirls
I used to be the kind of person who woke up and hit the ground running. But, illness has changed everything for me. I’m choosing to see slow mornings as a privilege. I know he is not always going to want to play with legos on the floor by the foot of my bed. So, I soak it in, and cherish his delight. #homeschooingwithchronicillness #homeschoolperks #nuggets #slowmornings

Camp! These two homeschool besties loved SUP yoga camp with Marci & Sarah @floatingyogis. ➖ They’ve been friends since they were in diapers, would you trust your bestie to guide your board? ➖ Homeschool PE can look like this- these two like the climbing gym, tennis, and hiking together- but they love paddling & look forward to more camp days on the water. ➖ #floatingyogis #homeschoolfamily #standuppaddle #paddlecamp #carlsbadlagoon #sandiegohomeschooling #fitkids #optoutside #theywereexhausted #unpluggedfun #homeschoolperks
One of my Foundations kiddos stopped me today at CC to share his Meerkat presentation with me. Isn’t he adorable? I love his spirit of wonder and investigation, and he has a mama who lets him indulge all of these wonderful curiosities he has. That is one of the biggest benefits of #homeschool - the freedom to learn at your own pace and according to what interests you. This little guy is so lucky!
Boys at the Red Sox game last night! My husband and three sons didn’t arrive home until after midnight last night! Lucky homeschool boys are still sleeping and poor older brother has already been off to school for over two hours. #redsox #boston #baseballlovers #mysons #homeschoolperks #homeschooling #latenight
This is where we do most of our book lessons. It’s not fancy or Pinterest perfect. It is big enough for all my children. It’s where we share meals. It’s where we discuss bible lessons and practice handwriting. It’s where God daily guides me to do a job I can’t do on my own. You don’t need a perfect space to homeschool. You don’t need to have it all together. (I’m proof enough of that.) You need a willing heart. Maybe your little boy is growing up and you’re realizing more and more how much you enjoy teaching him new things, and you’re dreading handing that job off to someone else next year. Maybe you’re a few years in at a great public or private school, but for one of your kids it’s just not working. There are far too many tears. You find yourself reteaching more and more lessons to your frustrated little girl. Maybe you dream of something completely different and want to show your kids the country, or the world! Whatever it is - Mama, if God calls you to homeschool, He will equip you. You won’t be perfect. There will be hard days. It will refine and grow you as much as it does your child. But if done for His glory, it will be GOOD.
Love to watch her learn❤️ {267/376} #HomeschoolPerks #Unschooling #NatureGirl #MySweetLace #365ofChelle
What if I had waited? Let another Monday pass by? Or waited until I had more time or things were less crazy? . . You can have EXCUSES or you can have RESULTS...but you can’t have both. . . I’m going to let you in on a lil secret...it’s never going to be the perfect time to start a healthy lifestyle. I promise the minute you think it is, LIFE will happen. But I promise you will never regret starting! . . Things only change if things change!!! . . Next Bootcamp is up and going but it’s never too late your journey to a healthy you! Message me!!!
What did homeschool look like for you today? Share here! . Today was our first official day back to homeschool. It wasn’t perfect, but it was okay. And that’s pretty good for a post-vacation, overcast Monday. . Yes, it’s much later than normal but we had a travel-filled September. . As a back to school surprise, I gave each kiddo a “Novel Journal” to use as a gratitude journal. . Have you seen these yet? The lines of the journal are teeny-tiny lines from your favorite novel! . My 10-year-old got Peter Pan, my 8-year-old got Wizard of Oz, and my 7-year-old got Grimm’s Fairytales. . I got Anne of Green Gables so that I can participate too! .

School time a little late today, mommy had a doctors appointment this morning, and the power was out when we got home, and someone needed a nap today (and while it was me, CJ managed to get one better than I did) #Homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoollife #homeschoolers #homeschooler #homeschooled #homeschoolrocks #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolmoms #homeschoolfun #homeschoolmama #homeschoolpreschool #homeschoolife #homeschoolperks #homeschoolkid
Two front teeth arrived yesterday. Early Christmas delivery. 🎄
When emotion is matched with new information, your brain starts to make connections faster. Playing makes for a positive emotional experience that makes learning fun, but also easy and effective. #stayathomemom #homeschooling #educate #unschoolingrocks #Unschoolingkids #homeschooldays #homeschoolperks #proudmommy #singlemom #proudmom #mompreneur #momlife #mommy #raisingkings #raisingqueens #mommy #mom #dad #daddy #momlife #dadlife #backtoschool #highschool
I’m a happy mommy tonight!!! It’s been months since I’ve gotten to watch baby girls gymnastics class and oh how I’ve missed it!!!!! I can’t wait to watch this!!!
🍎 picking with our homeschool friends today. Our favorite part of homeschooling is by far the flexibility. The fact that we can do things when everyone else is in school or work is magnificent. Today we picked 10 lbs of apples from a little local owned orchard. Now I have to figure out what to do with all these apples. Apple pie, apple crisp, apple butter, apple sauce....I feel like I’m the apple version of Forest Gump over here. 😂 .. . . . . #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschool #homeschooled #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolcollective #homeschoolperks #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolmama #homeschoolingbyheart #homeschoolingmama #homeschooler #uniteinmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #roadschooling #skoolie #unpluggedchildhood #gooutside #explore #beintentional
I saw this one in #homeeducation . With the caption, "We don’t drill you, please stop drilling us!" 📚 I thought it was pretty clever. ▪ Why don't we think like this? Why do we automatically take the place of weakness, being pinned into a corner, defending our choices? These are absolutely valid points that most homeschoolers are getting right. Why don't we stand in that place? ▪ I am certainly not suggesting that we start judging and attacking non-homeschoolers with these arguments. I don't think we should treat others the way they have treated us...or worse. That does no one any good. But we can know this for ourselves. We can stand in a place of confidence, knowing that we are doing good things for our children. We are not screwing them up just because we are not following the more travelled path...in the past century, that is. ▪ So, go forward this Monday from a place of confidence! You're doing a good job, parents! Keep going! ▪ And thanks for the reminder! @homeschooladventure @libinzibe ▪ ▪ ▪ #homeschooled #homeschoolfreedom #homeschoolrocks #homeschoolkids #homeschoolperks #homeschoollife #homeschoolmama #homeschoolmomma #homeschoolwithpersonality #homeschooladventures #homeschoolfamily #365homeschool #hiphomeschoolmoms #homeschoolforthewin #homeschool #homeschoolsupport
Oh this precious child of mine. We have two construction workers here working on our rotted deck and Noah hasn’t left their side. They speak approximate six words in English and Noah doesn’t care one bit, he’s been talking their ear off non stop, helping them haul wood, measuring angles and making sure they have enough food and drinks. ❤️ #homeschoolperks
When the temperatures finally come down enough to be comfortable, you have lunch on the front porch. Happy Fall y'all! And as an added bonus, we got to watch the hummingbirds come right up to the porch to the 2 feeders we have hanging up. #naturestudy with a side of lunch. 😉 . . . . #perksofhomeschooling #homeschoolperks #homeschoolingrocks #fallisfinallycoming #happyfallyall #thisisschooltoo #homeschooling #homeschoolers #homeschoolmom #homeschooledkids #homeschoolscience #homeschooled #homeschool #lovethislife
Windows open led to “it’s cold!” this morning...so they had to snuggle in the sun for reading. . . . #behmschool #homeschoolperks #100thingstoknowaboutspace #usbornebooksandmore #usbornebookbuzzwithliz #bookbuzzwithliz #nonfictionforkids
I planned of having a super productive morning. I promise. But my students decided to bribe their teacher with breakfast (and school) in bed. I think we will count this as life skills. A relaxed morning is the order for the day. #happymonday #breakfastinbed #easymornings #familybreakfast #blackhomeschoolers #homeschoolperks #toteachherown
So many reasons to homeschool:) #homeschoolperks #homeschoolmomma #bossbabe #makeupmomma
Hey hey!!! . . Love me some Monday’s! Monday’s are our crazy days but they are also fresh starts and new beginnings!!! I kind of feel like I new a fresh start, because I’ve been kind of flailing around since I haven’t been able to workout but that STOPS, this week! This week I WILL reign in my terror! . . Are you ready to join me? New Bootcamp is up and going, but it’s never too late to bet on YOU! ! Message me and let’s do it!
We are full swing into this #homeschool thing and enjoying our slow-paced mornings. • I’ve had a lot of people asking me what curriculum we are using and this year we are trying @thegoodandthebeautiful and I have been monumentally impressed. We are thoroughly enjoying it! Each day, we open up our lessons and just dive in! • I’m sharing more homeschool how-to’s on the blog today {link in profile to check out}. • Our homeschooling journey has looked different every year and I’m really liking how the beginning of this one is shaping up to be! ☺️
We made a change in math curriculum this year. Grant switched from Saxon to Shormann Math. I have been ABUNDANTLY pleased with the change. A lot of you have asked why we didn’t go with Mr. D Math for Grant. Here’s why: - [ ] Shormann aligns closely with Saxon and that works well for Grant - [ ] Shormann goes through Calculus, while Mr. D does not - [ ] Shormann includes Geometry with Algebra I and II instead of making it a separate class. I love the recorded videos and that the grading is done for me. I have almost completely stepped out of Math right now, and that is awesome. The instruction is Biblical and solid. I have read it is excellent preparation for the ACT and SAT. Mr. D Math works well for a lot of kids and it still a great option! I would encourage you to look at both if you are wondering about high school math!
What are you cooking up for math today?
Have you seen our post on how to make easy, DIY unit studies? (Blog link in bio) They're perfect for when your child is interested in a specific subject that your curriculum doesn't cover! . . . #unitstudies #homeschooling #365homeschool #homeschoollookslikethis #homeschoolperks #homeschooler #homeschoolfun #homeeducation #homeschoollife
Starting my morning sitting in my favorite spot, with a cup of coffee, reading my book before the rest of the house wakes up = Happy Mom

So we are starting this school year a little late. Tomorrow is our first day of 2nd grade and preschool. I’m so happy with my new utility cart. Hopefully it will help keep us more organized and user friendly. #homeschool #latestart #homeschoolperks
Anyone else?!?
I had some extra color left after touching up my hair and Taylor wanted it. Turned out pretty awesome!! #purple #blue #purplehair #bluehair #brighthairdontcare #homeschoolperks
Beautiful Cursive and Art Lessons from Classical Conversations - review by Mary at The Curriculum Choice #thecurriculumchoice #homeschoolreview
I had big plans today for a photo editing session and a new painting. Instead I took a nap with my baby and spent the day relaxing. After talking with a good friend of mine I decided I need to change up my homeschool routine until my husband gets home. Stretching myself too thin doesn’t help anybody. Take some time to enjoy the things you love and take a day to relax every now and then. ❤️ . . . #kittens #sleepingcat #catsofinstagram #etsy #etsyseller #etsyartist #momgoals #selfcare #homeschool #homeschoolmom homeschoolers #homeschoolperks #homeschoolfun #legitmomstyle #momlife #creativityfound #brandstyling #ladypreneur #chasinglight #LiveColorfully #CaffeinateAndConquer #mycreativebiz #deploymentsucks #militarywife

Good news! There is still some room in our Pinckney Island Nature Tour planned for this Tuesday. The weather forecast is looking beautiful! Registration is at lowcountryfieldtrips.com #pinckneyisland #guidednaturetour #localwildlife
We added a new family member today. I had been thinking about it for a few months, I seem to have a reptile/animal obsessed child and then today the Sask Reptile show did me in. 🐊 This is our tiny little Crested Gecko. Currently unnamed, gender to be determined at a later date. 😂 🐍 Pets (new and old) make great learning opportunities and today we learned a LOT.
My friend’s like... “hey, can you send me that photo of you flexing? I want to show my friend... is that weird?” And I’m all... “💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻” 😂😂. . In all honesty, my upper body has always been easy for me to develop. In fact, even after my 4th baby I etched out a 6 pack... it is a little more of a challenge after the 5th kid. But my arms are still one of my easier areas to define. . With that being said, I’m sure my last 7 years as a Beachbody Coach hasn’t hurt. I love what I do for many reasons but perhaps the most valuable is the focus on my own health and well-being. You can’t put a price tag on your health. . Earning an income while improving my health and helping others do the same is pretty much a dream job if you ask me! . I’m gonna be a coach until I’m old and gray. You will see me flexing over here on IG when I’m 80. When are you finally going to join me? I’m waiting ❤️. Come check out my fitness accountability groups or if you’ve been watching me a while and you’re finally ready to say yes, come join my team and let’s join forces in ending the trend of obesity ❤️. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mumof5 #mummybloggersuk #momof5kids #mealprepforthewin #gunshow #getfitnowonline #momswhoworkoutathome #momswhoworkfromhome #onedayatatimesweetjesus #supermomma #homeschoolroom #homeschoolblogger #healthstartsinthehome #momwinning #momwinsagain #homeofficeday #wahmstyle #fitmomof5 #homeschoolperks
I love these little notes from my girl! I find them in random places. They aren’t written specifically to me. Just thoughts she has then writes down. I love finding them regardless! #lovebeinghermom
Here is the second diagram in a series of the characters of the 100 Acre Wood. 📚 And its corresponding article is now live on my site. Meet Kanga. (Link in Bio) ▪ Though I am certain A.A. Milne did not set out to explain the theory of personality when he wrote his delightful stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, his characters really can help us to understand this very complex concept. Kanga, here, helps us learn more about the extraverted feelers. ▪ So hop on over to the site...no pun intended...and tell me if you see anyone you know! I hope this is a help to you! ▪ ▪ ▪ #enfj #esfj #extrovertedfeeling #extravertedfeeling #myersbriggs #feelers #kanga #winniethepooh #homeschoolwithpersonality #kidsarepeopletoo #homeschoolfreedom #homeschoolrocks #homeschoolkids #homeschoolperks #homeschoollife #homeschoolmama #homeschoolmomma #homeschooladventures #homeschoolfamily #365homeschool #hiphomeschoolmoms #homeschoolforthewin #homeschool #homeschoolsupport
