Welcoming in the 2016 – 2017 School Year

Course_LogoHave I mentioned I’m one of those crazy, weird moms. The ones that don’t take the summer off? After a short breather, we’re back in action and ready to get the party started.

To kick the year off right and keep a digital record of our fun, here’s a quick rundown of coming attractions. A glimpse of when all the craziness takes place. A hint of the daily action. What we’re using at the table, and more.

Our 2016-2017 Yearly Schedule
A quick overview of what our year looks like. Our school days, many breaks, and holidays which demanded a day off. There’s never a dull moment here.

Our Routine
We don’t believe in strict schedules, but life without a routine would fall to pieces. Here’s what’s worked for us, and the many ways it’s changed over the years.

Our 2016-2017 Curriculum
From Bible to Oceanography; from the littles to the bigs. Here’s what we’re using and where we find the best deals.

As homeschoolers, our learning never stops; not really. We’ve been known to take field trips on weekends, learn new skills on Sunday afternoons, and study well into any given evening. It just makes sense that our ‘school’ year takes place all year round.

Through the Lord’s leading, each year has been a unique blessing. With Him guiding our family, home, and learning we can’t go wrong. May this year be focused entirely on God and His call upon our lives. May we emerge steeped in Scripture, filled with wisdom, and stronger in the faith.

  1. We start back August 15th! We tend to take longer summer breaks but they are still filled with daily learning and growing (so thankful for that)! This year will be interesting since I am going to officially add our toddler to the “school roster”, LOL! She’s only going to be 2, but she exhibits a love for learning so I’m going with it! Also new for us this year is our [currently] 4 month old. It’s going to be fun juggling a new schedule and routine, but hey – that’s one of the joys of homeschool, right?! Blessings as you start your new year! 😀

  2. This was going to be my first official summer break while homeschooling, or so I thought. I can’t seem to help myself, “ooh, look at this, we could learn about this”, ooh that looks fun, I’m going get that curriculum on Ebay” I’m finding that homeschool doesn’t stop. When my kids ask to learn or I see something I know they will love to learn about, it’s just on. I can’t seem to stop. Learning just seems to keep happening.
