Books and Blogs: What I’ve Been Reading This Month (September 2015)

Wow! Our first month back-to-homeschool is done. I can't believe how fast it went and what's even better is the kids feel the same way. They've been enjoying their curriculum and the topics, which is always a plus. Miss S has even had a light bulb moment, where she had been struggling to understand something… Continue reading Books and Blogs: What I’ve Been Reading This Month (September 2015)

Books and Blogs: What I’ve Been Reading This Month (August 2015)

What I have been reading this month for inspiration, entertainment, education, and more!

We have been talking about going since she was little and there was never a chance. When we lived in Texas, she was too young for liability reasons at every place we tried; in Germany, horseback… Continue reading A Trail Ride with My Daughter

2015-16 Curriculum Plan: 8th Grade

8th Grade! Where did the time go? I can't believe this is the last year before my little girl is officially a "high-schooler"! That means this year is a big transition year. We are homeschooling on a very tight budget, so most of these resources are free, but that in no way diminishes the quality.… Continue reading 2015-16 Curriculum Plan: 8th Grade
