Our 2017-2018 Homeschool Curriculum

Our 2017-2018 Homeschool Curriculum

This is our seventh year homeschooling.  My family is still thrilled with our decision to homeschool.   We don’t purchase box curriculum sets, instead I put together our own.  Creating our 2017-2018 homeschool curriculum was a bit more challenging because they are all moving up in their grades, no more preschoolers here.  If you are interested in what we are working on this […]

It is November and we are finally finding our homeschool groove.  This homeschool groove seems to be ever-changing but right now we are on a roll.  Last night I realized that I never posted our 2016-2017 homeschool curriculum.  I enjoy writing these posts because they serve as a reference for years to come.

Living & Learning With Love: October & November 2015

Our 5th Year Homeschooling: Changing It Up, Again! (Our Beginning Of The Year Curriculum)
