  • The School Scramble
    by Sara Jones on August 31, 2019 at 2:30 AM

    I have an idea for a new video game. But this one is different—this one will be designed specifically for homeschooling parents! It will be called The School Scramble and will go something like this: Level One: Collect school-related items as they fall from the sky. New notebooks score you more joy, as do brand-new […]

  • Learning The Hard Way
    by Rose Focht on August 23, 2019 at 2:00 PM

    There’s an old cliché about learning from the school of hard knocks: “Good judgment comes from experience; and experience? That comes from bad judgment.” It’s a humorous phrase, but there’s a lot of truth to it. The classic example, of course, is the lesson to not touch a hot stove; the pain is sharp, immediate, […]

  • Trees Planted by Water: What Can We Learn from Josh Harris?
    by Jessica Cole on August 20, 2019 at 9:00 PM

    The tree in the cover photo may not look like anything special, but in certain circles it’s actually pretty famous. It all started when a young man buried a box of love letters in his girlfriend’s front yard. Years later, he used planting this tree as his excuse to dig up the same plot of […]

  • Confessions of a Homeschool Mom
    by Sara Jones on August 16, 2019 at 2:00 PM

    As someone who was homeschooled during the 1990s, I had a distinct idea of what the ideal homeschool mom was like. She was organized, found creative ways to teach mundane concepts, read aloud from beloved books, and enjoyed the process of planning and teaching while her children helped run the household according to the system […]

  • Ready or Not? It’s Time to Start (Advice for New Homeschoolers)
    by Rachelle Reitz on August 15, 2019 at 3:00 PM

    “We are homeschooling next year!!” the message from my dear friend, Anna, read. I found myself excited, but also nervous for her; I have a similar reaction when someone becomes a new parent. They have no idea how much their life is going to change. The change is for the better, but it will involve […]

  • How Can I Homeschool If I Don’t Like Teaching?
    by Jessica Cole on August 13, 2019 at 8:00 PM

    As a fun activity on Mother’s Day, our small group played a guessing game involving all the moms in the class. We each wrote down answers to random questions about ourselves, and then the men had to guess whose answer was whose. One of the questions was, “what did you once want to be when […]

  • To the Moms of Multiple Littles: You Will Make It
    by Jessica Cole on August 7, 2019 at 8:30 PM

    There may be many readers of this blog whose children are largely beyond the stage that I’m about to address today. I’m guessing, however, that there are a fair number of parents who are just starting out their homeschool journey with a preschooler or kindergartner; parents who may be overwhelmed at the thought of homeschooling […]

  • Swimming with Sharks: Teen Wins a National Geographic Adventure
    by Dave Dentel on July 30, 2019 at 2:00 PM

    Like many teens, Eva Heroux’s summer break has so far involved a fair amount of time spent in and around water. The big difference is that this summer her aquatic companions included sharks. The 14-year-old’s encounter with ocean predators occurred as part of an amazing opportunity she earned by describing adventures she had already experienced. […]

  • Pages from the Past
    by Sara Jones on July 26, 2019 at 2:00 PM

    The library archives are boring. At least, that’s what two of my kids informed me of one summer morning when I hauled them out of the house and to the library. I’d discovered the archives section several months ago while researching for my novel. Housed in a small room on the basement level, the archives […]
