Our Favorites from last week:

Heidi from Starts at Eight chose to feature Classically Homeschooling’s – Senior Year: It’s Time to Panic!

Heidi said, “Although we are not at senior year yet, we are beginning sophomore year and it is easy to second guess and panic. I love her message that is so wonderfully summed up near the end, ‘My son has learned how to learn, how to study, and how to educate himself’. In my mind, with those skills, your child can learn anything they wish, so even if I find holes in their education, they are holes they can fill if and when then need to.


Trish of Live and Learn Farm liked Just Another Blog’s post, I Boxed Up Every Single Toy!

Trish commented “This article really caught my eye and imagination! I have had a desire to do this very thing so many times and have read many articles on this topic… What I found interesting about Laurie’s article is that it is not only about her children having too much stuff but about what Laurie wants to give them instead of those things… read her article! 


Heather from A Nurse’s Wildflowers appreciated Lextin Academy’s – Curriculum Oops! – How to Learn and Recover from Your Mistakes.

Heather shared, “Lexi discusses the one thing I imagine all homeschoolers go through at one time or another…if not regularly. I’ve made my share of curriculum oopsies. It’s so frustrating but it is part of learning your child’s learning style as well as your own teaching needs. Lexi provides some great input on this and how to avoid it in the future. It is a great resource and encouraging for when we make a curriculum mistake.”

One of our new team members, Taunya of The Natural Homeschool, liked the post from Chaotic Simplicity titled You’ll Miss Everything that Goes Right.

Taunya shares, “I really enjoyed reading this post, it was exactly the encouragement I needed today. I think many of us might need to read this on a weekly basis.”
