As moms, we have a lot on our plates and often forget about ourselves. Before I got married and had children, I was a busy and successful career woman. Once we got married, I still worked and then when I got pregnant with our daughter, I was put on bed rest at 7 1/2 months. My husband and I were in agreement that once we had kids, I would stay at home with them.
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.
My last post I talked a little bit about Our Homeschool Journey. When we took the kids out of a Catholic school, we really did not know how to start the process of homeschooling. Like I said before, I immediately contacted my friend who had been homeschooling few years at that point. I picked her brain and asked her where I should start.
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!
