Christmas is that wonderful time of year that delights our souls, causes us to wonder and distracts the daylights out of our students. The best way to grab their attention during Christmas and the whole holiday season is to cheat.
Nestle your learning activities within Christmas themed activities. Kids will love the Christmas graphics and exercises and you will love that you can push forward and check off the box “I taught my kids today” with a big smile.
About 20 years ago, my husband tricked me into homeschooling.
I was completely against the idea and thought the few homeschoolers I knew were weird.
I was convinced I could not educate my own kids either. He didn’t care. Well, he cared. He just knew we were supposed to do it. He asked me to try it for one year. “If it’s terrible, horrible, no good, and very bad then we can quit.”
That was almost two decades ago.
Homeschooling is hard.
Had I known that from the beginning I might have quit before I figured out I could actually do it.
Let’s stop trying to be perfect homeschoolers and realize that we need each other on this crazy journey.

A Better Way to Homeschool On this website you will find:
This is a public page focusing on bringing you resources, freebies, and encouragement for homeschooling all with character training in mind.
This spot on the internet is special. This closed group is filled with new and veteran homeschool moms who are lazer focused on the character training of their kids. But it's more than that. It's a community of homeschooling friends who are excited to get to know each other. We chat about parenting, babies, food, activities, books, and even homeschooling. But ALWAYS with the character of our kids as our primary goal.
This is a positive, encouraging and loving group. Although we laugh a lot, meanness, scorning, and overall yucky behavior is not tolerated. Come join us!
