The Homeschool Mama’s Daybook

Organizing for the Homeschool Year

I looked back to see when the last last Simple Woman’s Daybook was posted and laughed when I discovered it was in 2011 after my 4th baby was born. I was cruising on postpartum fog into the great unknown of “homeschool mom despair” (all brought about because God was purging me of my perfectionism). New babies do […]

To Sum Up a Homeschool Conference…

The Carmans at THSC

I had all these words floating around in my mind over the past few days… words that tried to somehow grasp at buttoning up the experience of THSC and presenting it neat-fit and tucked in. But there wasn’t time enough. I treasured the weekend up and decided to share it tonight before it was lost. […]

A whole month gone and blank WordPress pages make me wonder where I could ever begin. My desktop calendar says APRIL. My paper calendar is blank nearly back through March besides scrawled attempts at adding appointments even though I knew it was hit or miss that I would even pick up the calendar again to […]

You Can Stop Common Core … and more!

There’s not much in the education spectrum that I hate worse than Common Core. I could write a long post about it, but my blood pressure can’t stand the boil. I’m pretty sure if you are a homeschooler, you already know about the pornographic books they want to push on kids through Common Core… the […]
