A Typical Homeschool Day in the Life

When I first started homeschooling, or even considering homeschooling, the most helpful blogs posts were those that laid out the homeschooling day, step by step. I felt like I could finally grasp how this homeschooling life could actually work! Managing three kids, schooling, housework, side jobs and everything else can be a lot some days, but a daily rhythm keeps my sanity. What is homeschooling like? Each day is different, so that’s why we call it a rhythm, rather than a schedule. Attitudes, visitors, and a plethora of interruptions can change our plans at a minutes notice, so flexibility is...

How I Read 100 Books in a Year (And Why I Think You Could Too)

A few years ago, I was sitting around during those strange days between Christmas and New Years (when no one seems to know what day it is) and I saw a friend of mine post about the 100 books she had read that year. My first reaction was–NO WAY–she must have counted picture books or something, because she was in the same stage of life as I was with young kids, pregnant/nursing and homeschooling, etc. and I had, had the same three books on my nightstand for the last eight months without any progress. But, as I looked over the...
