We’re going on our fifth year of our homeschool, and we are really loving it. It has been the best move for our family that we could have made. This year we are homeschooling grades 1, 3, and 5.

We often have people ask why we chose to homeschool. We did not set out planning to homeschool when it came time for our oldest to start school. Instead she did go to public school for one year. But it was not a fit. She wasn’t happy. I wasn’t happy with the school.

Her we are five years later. Happily homeschooling our three children and I finally feel like I know what I am doing, for the most part at least. And we’re going to keep on going.

Over the past five years I have been writing about our journey including:

Homeschool curriculum – boxed curriculum, our eclectic curriculum choices, and everything in between.

Science experiments – the experiments we do to go along with our curriculum and those that we do for fun.

Homeschool helps – these are the articles I wrote to help you. To help you stay on track. To help you keep going when you feel like quitting. To help you get more organized. And to help you have a little more you time.

Here I have compiled any and all homeschool related posts here on my site. If there is something specific you are looking for, use the search either to the right (on desktop) or all the way at the bottom (on mobile).
