    Homeschooling, Public Education and Fear

    When I shared on my Instagram last week about my son’s first day of public school, I got a few concerned messages from fellow homeschoolers and public-schoolers alike. Now before you go picturing my son as a little boy with a book bag that is bigger than he is and his first day of school consisting of paste and crayons… He has facial hair and a drivers license. He stands several inches above me and will be 17 in a few short months. He is entering public school as a junior. Still, the concern came from followers of mine who knew all those facts. I DO understand their side of…

    February 24 – March 2, 2019

    What’s up, Farmhouse Family? Last week I shared an ever popular grocery haul, but made some big mess ups… opps! Oh well, can’t win them all, right? I also was tagged to do the “assumptions” video that has been going around YouTube. That was a really fun one to film, and I even had a few visitors toward the end. Keep in mind, too, guys, that YouTube is doing a major “housecleaning” of channels and comments to make it a safer platform for kids. I respect the swift and severe action they are taking, but that does mean that things are a bit wonky right now. Most of my past…

    Weekly Wrap Up | June 17-23rd

    New Videos: Did you catch this week’s new videos? In Monday’s DITL, Mike and I FINALLY test drove a Ford Transit! We have been wanting to test drive some options for when we decided to replace our family. The Ford Transit and the Mercedes Sprinter are at the top of my list, but the Sprinters are super hard to find around our area. The big decision is whether we want to save up for it or take out an loan for it. I HATE DEBT, so there’s that little hurdle… In Wednesday’s video I walked you through 10 tips for a clutter free home. As a chaos coordinator for 10,…

    Our Yearly Schedule Pros and Cons | Traditional

    When it comes to homeschooing there are so many different choices that parents have to make. One of them is what type of yearly schedule works for your family. Our family chooses a “traditional” yearly schedule. We tend to start our school year around Labor Day and try to wrap things up by Memorial Day. We take a whole month off for Christmas and a week off in the Spring around Easter. This comes with both pros and cons which I will be sharing with you in this post. If you’re interested in other types of schooling head over to these fellow YouTubers and see how their methods are working…

    Our Daily Homeschool Routine!

    So many have asked what our homeschool routine looks like this year with 8 kids! Let me give you a bit of background about what each child is involved in!

You can see our curriculum choices for the year HERE. Here is a rough outline of our plan for the day. I talk about it…
