5 Things to do After Homeschool Graduation

By Alyssa Liljequist At times, it seemed like it would never end. Week after week, month after month, grade after grade—surely my home education would last forever, I thought. As a child, I wanted to finish my schoolwork as quickly as possible so that I could play. As a teen in homeschool high school, I had writing and filmmaking projects for which I needed to make time. I dreamed of the freedom I’d have one…

Enjoying the Christmas Season with your Teenager

We have two teenagers in the & 17 We, as a family, have a few traditions. In all honesty, they were when we had younger kids and are getting harder to talk the kids into as the they get older. Things like Gingerbread House decorating and sugar cookie baking. The last two years I did Elf on the Shelf. Pretty sure I won't get away with that again this year. Make thermos full of hot…

Homeschool, History, and Happiness.

By Katie Follett “What is it like to be homeschooled for high school?” This question seems to be one of the most frequent ones that teens, and adults alike, ask me when they discover that I am homeschooled. From what other homeschoolers say, this isn’t the most unique question either; in fact, it seems to be very common. Many times I have found myself wondering how different my schooling would be if I were not…

Why My Kids will Never Go to Public High School

We started homeschooling when my kids were going into 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 10th grades. Go Big or Go Home. There were a number of factors that led up to our choosing to bring our kids home from public school, but the main one was when our oldest decided to drop out of 9th grade and the school didn't call. They didn't call to ask where he was for a full 2 weeks. I am…

If you are unfamiliar with Mere Christianity here is a quick rundown. "Mere Christianity…

An Author Interview: Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal

We are getting ready for the launch of the journal. I wanted to share some Q&A with the author, Stacy Farrell. This is an affiliate link. It doesn't cost you anything additional, just helps keep up and running. Thank you. What would you say to a young person who aspires to be a writer? What advice would you give? Also, what would you tell his/her parents in order to help them be supportive in their…

What Curriculum Do We Use?

This year has come together swimmingly as far as 'curriculum' goes. I switched from Simply Charlotte Mason as our guide and went to Ambelside Online. Ambelside seems a little more challenging. So far so good. There's more assigned reading than my kids are used to, but it isn't twaddle.   Their Schedule: History Autobiography of Ben Franklin History of American People by Johnson, Paul Young Patriots Class with Founders Academy +extra assignements Language Arts: Grammar…

Homeschooling High School {Field Trips}

photo credit: foreverdigital via photopin cc Something I have learned in my years of homeschooling is that high schooler's are a tad harder to entertain than the elementary or even junior high age. I want these trips to be intentional and educational. High school years fly by faster than the others. One day they are starting their freshman year, the next they are looking at college or at least life after high school. These are…
