Our Homeschool Blog

Keeping a homeschool blog has been so beneficial for me! As the teacher, I have so many pressures on me already. It’s so encouraging to see all that we’ve accomplished since beginning homeschooling. It helps me realize learning how to homeschool is not as hard as I thought it would be!

I started out my homeschool blog journey with this blog at Homeschool Blogger. I kept it going for quite some time and enjoyed having the interaction and input of other home schooling Moms as we were just starting. After a few years though, I decided to blog here.

When I first started this blog I had the hopes of continuing all throughout our home school year. That was interrupted and the blog came to a standstill. For all of you who were following along, I do apologize. Sometimes life gets in the way of your most well-thought out plans.

Since then, I’ve tried to fill this blog with other relevant topics and reviews. You can read all that I’ve shared already and comment on every post. I’d love to hear if you’re sharing in our struggles and experiencing the same rewards we are!
