Homeschool Routines, Rules, and Planner

Have you got homeschool routines going?

Having homeschool routines makes life a lot easier for everyone.  Thing is, it gets tricky when you’re adding so much that everyone is overwhelmed.  When you do it this way, you can’t have everything predictably scheduled.  I’ve mentioned before that’s one of the reasons I like meal planning, and homeschool routines are no different.

I’m a Dave Ramsey girl, and he’s actually the reason I got into this blog.  Or at least he was the one that gave me the courage to follow through.  His name is still a bit of a curse word in our house, but I sure do love him and all his little sayings.

One of my favorites is, “To be unclear is to be unkind.”  Now I can’t recall whether that was his own saying or a borrowed one, but either way, it’s perfect for homeschooling (even more so when dealing with special needs)!

Listen to audiobooks – 15 days of practical self care

Yes, listen to audiobooks…

if you don’t already, audiobooks are a great way to bask in some wisdom or inspiration.  You can learn about something that’s just for you. You don’t have to be peacefully seated, uninterrupted, or struggling to stay awake as you read in bed!

Perhaps you just need an escape from reality a bit?  A good mystery or sweet love story (any other Notebook fans with me?) can be just what you need to take your mind off of endless anxiety loops.

Why do you need a homeschool convention?

If you’re like me, you don’t know everything in the world about homeschooling.  You’re still learning new tricks every day.  Sure, I know a heck of a lot more than when I started, and I share all of that with you here in the blog, but there is always more to learn.  That’s where a homeschool convention comes in.
