North Carolina State Project

North Carolina State Project

  *While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!* Today I wanted to share a project idea with you that we’ve done. We’ve spent some time doing a unit study of the history of North Carolina. I figured our state was as good a place as any to start with when it came to history. {By the way, if you are trying to help your kids learn…

Our Schedule & a Freebie!!

Our Schedule & a Freebie!!

We are half way through our first six-week session now and I’m going to be honest with you, it hasn’t been easy. There have been days where I’ve questioned my life choices. But thankfully, my husband has been there at the end of the long days telling me it’s okay and we’re all doing just fine. So far, I’ve learned that homeschooling with a toddler (a run-full-tilt-till-you-crash-into-something all-boy two year old) is no picnic. But I think we’re on the…

Friday Favorites: Field Trip Ideas

Friday Favorites: Field Trip Ideas

Hey everyone! We’ve made it through another week! Feels good! 🙂 Earlier this week, I was chatting with a fellow homeschool mom and we got around to talking about the new school year. After comparing some of our new curriculum choices, we got around to talking about field trips. Ya know, it’s funny. Somehow, I don’t know how it happens, but it happens that along the way we forget about going out on just for fun field trips. (It’s funny…

Unit Study on the Ocean

Unit Study on the Ocean

Today I wanted to share one of our unit studies with you. I’ve been asked a few times where do I get my unit studies. After answering honestly with Pinterest, I get an ‘oh’ and the conversation seems to kind of fizzle out. I’m going to guess that it’s because putting together a unit study seems intimidating and stressful combined with a whole lot of “I have no clue where to start or what to cover!” and the nice and…

First Day of School Activities

First Day of School Activities

  *While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!* We started up school again last week! I know, it seems really early. However, we wrapped up our year in the middle of May. We’ve been on vacation for awhile. Plus, it’s really really hot here right now so we won’t be going outside very much right now anyway. [I spent a good portion of my break…

10 Things My Homeschool Can’t Survive Without!

10 Things My Homeschool Can’t Survive Without!

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   When I first started homeschooling, I joined a bunch of groups on Facebook. I searched for every possible group I could think of and joined the ones I could. It helped me feel less like I was jumping into the deep end by knowing there were lots of groups of people who had “been there done that”….
