finishing strong

June 8, 2016

Summer is here!! We have always homeschooled with a relaxed approach year round. My daughter will be starting high school and my son seventh come fall. For the first time, we are really feeling the desire to take significant time off from formal studies.

Finishing-Strong-500x500Likewise, the hosts of Finishing Strong – Heather from Blog She Wrote, Megan and Susan from Education Possible, and Heidi from Starts at Eight have opted to take the summer months off from our regular link-up schedule. We’ll be back on August 10th. Until then, we’ll leave the link-up open until then.

So check back often for inspiration and share the posts you have written over the summer. Leave a comment and let me know what posts you’ve most enjoyed!

Finishing Strong

Reassuring-FactsIt is so easy to get caught up in comparing ourselves to others – second guessing our choices and the decisions we make for our children. The best thing about homeschooling, however, is the freedom to individualize our child’s education experience. For this reason, I just love Ann’s post, 12 Reassuring Facts You Should Know About Homeschooling High School. It is the perfect reminder that we hold our heads up and have confidence.

Current-EventsGeography has always been an important part of our homeschool studies. Current Events Country Study by Stef Layton is a wonderful geography unit that can be easily incorporated in your homeschool. “I think this is a great opportunity for my boys to stay aware of current events, and not just for trending points.”

Adult-Coloring-BooksIf you are as fascinated by the explosion of adult coloring books as I, you’ll love Heidi’s post Using Adult Coloring Books for Homeschool. “It seems as though if you can name the topic, there is a coloring book for you. Many coloring books also go a step further and include facts and information about the things you are coloring.”
