Most of you know that I also write for home/school/life magazine and blog, and if you’d like to read all my blog posts over there, you can click the icon in my right hand margin. (Or click here.)
But there are two recent posts that I’d like to point out to you because they almost appeared on this blog. (Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to write for home/school/life and what to write for my blog, and sometimes the mental guidelines I use overlap!)
If you haven’t been to the home/school/life website in awhile, I urge you to take some time there. The Summer 2016 issue is out, and it’s full of great stuff! Besides a blog that Amy is updating every weekday, there is a store with some free stuff (and some stuff for sell and more stuff will be coming!), a podcast that I’m having a lot of fun listening to (it’s perfect for geeky homeschool moms!), and some online classes! That’s right. Amy has lined up some spectacular folks to teach some really interesting classes to homeschool students, and there will be more where that comes from. So please check it out!
If you read home/school/life magazine (which you really should), you’ll know that I made a resolution that 2016 will be my year of citizen science projects! Today I posted my first project on the home/school/life blog. I hope you’ll check it out!
Be sure to hop over to the home/school/life blog and read about how I make and achieve academic goals in our homeschool. Click here for Achieving Homeschool Academic Goals, and I hope you will chime in on how you approach your goals too. (Note that this is about our academic goals or what I require my boys to learn and not my kid’s own goals.)
I have written two installments in a new series on the home / school / life magazine. This series, At Home with the Editors, is a look into Amy’s and my homeschool. Though we feel strongly that every family has to figure out what works best for them, we also thought it might be a good idea to let our readers know how we do it too.
So, check out Shelli’s Homeschool for a snapshot of how I educate my boys and all the curriculum resources we have used thus far, and then read Shelli’s Project-Based Homeschoolfor a good summary of how project-based homeschooling has worked in our home and the valuable lessons I have learned from it so far. To read all the posts in this series (because Amy is writing some pretty helpful stuff too), click here.
Dawn Smith, of the wonderful Mud Puddles to Meteors nature blog, asked me if I would share some of my photographs of our recent ice storm in Georgia. You can find that post by clicking here. Though the ice storm did a lot of damage, we were lucky enough to experience the wondrous side of the ice storm.
Also, I have written another Mindful Homeschooling post on the home / school / life blog. Click here for that.
I’m happy to share with you a new blog series that I’m going to be writing on the home / school / life blog. It’s called “Mindful Homeschooling,” and I’m hoping that these short posts will encourage, inspire and give you a quiet peaceful moment on your homeschooling journey.
I’ll let you know when I publish new posts in this series. You can find the first one on the home / school / life blog today. Click here.
If you’d like to learn more about me and my creative work, you can head over to Days With The Grays where I participated in a Creative Mothers interview. All the interviews in that series are inspiring to read! I hope you’ll read them and then find the creative spark within yourself. You can do it!!
Just a short post today to tell you that I’m happily sharing more of my photography on the Mud Puddles to Meteors blog today. I’m flattered that they want to share my work! These are some of my favorite images from our trip to Amelia Island, Florida a couple of years ago. We were celebrating my in-laws 50th anniversary. Check that out by clicking here.
And, the Massachusetts State Science & Engineering Fair found my post about the seven-year-old’s first science fair project, and they asked me if they could feature it on their blog as an example of how to get kids involved in science! Way to go, seven-year-old!! Check it out by clicking here.
