Homeschool Curriculum We Are Using for 2016 – 2017

Trying to figure out what curriculum to use for your homeschooler(s) can be such a huge challenge.  It can feel very overwhelming knowing that you are in charge of choosing your child’s books, online courses, etc.  One thing that has helped me a ton is talking to other moms who have been homeschooling for a while and have some experience with choosing curriculum.

Spending Time with Positive People

A few years ago, I started to realize that some of the people I was spending my time with were not the healthiest for me.  I am the kind of person who makes friends very easily and since I have lived in a lot of different cities and states, I have made a lot of friends.  Every place I have ever lived, I have made some life-long friends and some that God just meant for me to have for a short while.

PiperWai Deodorant

If you’ve been following our journey at all, you know that natural deodorant has been a trial and error for me for over 6 years.  It has been quite the challenge to find one that works for me.  I have tried so many and none of them truly worked all day for me.  I know the dangers of using deodorants with aluminum in them so I refused to go back to using them again but I needed to find something that would keep me fresh smelling all day.  Smelling funky is definitely not my thing!

Our Homeschool Journey

Do you homeschool?  We started homeschooling in March, 2015.  Our kids went to a nearby Catholic school, which we were very happy with until the 2014/2015 school year.  Our daughter was in 3rd grade at the time and up until then, she absolutely loved school.  I mean, she loved it!
