An Eclectic Approach to Becoming a Writer

Eclectic Writer

It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.

– Ernest Hemingway

A question that I often come across on homeschool forums is what can you do to help  a struggling writer. I had a struggling writer for many years, and now that he is 16 and thinking about college he is debating majoring in writing…

Learning Through the Holiday Season

sea-learnholiday

Looking back over the years, December has always been one of the most difficult months for homeschooling. Right around the end of November, my children just seem to lose the ability to focus on their lessons.  Unfortunately, it isn’t just the children who lose focus – my schedule tends to get a little busier this time of year too. Distractions range from shopping, baking, extra housework and decorating, to preparing for company – there is a lot to do in December…

A Day in the Life: Emily’s Charlotte Mason Inspired Homeschool

Day in the Life

Emily C.

Every homeschooler wants to get a peek into another’s day. We’re always curious about how other mom’s manage. Maybe your homeschool tends toward very school-at-home, or  classical, or project-based.  We all picture every other homeschool mom as being a Pinterest-worthy super-mom, but really, we’re all pretty much the same – just doing our best to educate our children as well as we possibly can…
