I can not believe my oldest is ready for Algebra. This is Saxon Algebra 1/2. The class before highschool Algebra 1. We love Saxon for Emma. Here is a link to a post I did that goes a little more in depth on Saxon Math and why we like it.
Hey there Mamas. Wanna talk math? Oh, well. Let’s do it anyway : ) This will just take a minute. Consistency? Hmmm. Not really. As I have mentioned before, I have tried many, many different curriculum over the last 9 years. And the only thing I have remained consistent on is the last 3 years […]
We have been homeschooling for about 9 years. What that means is when our first daughter (now 12) was 3, I was researching and buying curriculum. Now today, I would just tell a mama that had a 3 year old to relax, have fun and read about other homeschoolers in your spare time. Don’t get […]

Maybe a little classical. Maybe a little Charlotte Mason. Maybe a little unschooling. But then it also depends on the child. I […]
Emma, 11, at her desk which shares a room with the baby changing table near the laundry room. Well, my, my. This is quite the subject. I’m just going to talk about a few things I say to people who tell me they have been thinking about homeschooling, but really don’t see how they could […]
