If you haven’t done it yet, you’ve got to try it. It is literally my favorite part of being a relaxed, eclectic homeschooler. What is it you ask?! Car School! That’s right, some of our most productive, and amazing homeschool days happen in the car. There’s something about the car, the confinement, the inability to … Continue reading →
As homeschool moms it’s easy to think about all the things our kids need. However, if we want to stay sane, we need to also think about ourselves. It’s easy to take care of the kids, and forget to take care of ourselves, but it’s imperative we do. So, besides coffee, here’s two things homeschool … Continue reading →
We are cruising toward the end of our first year homeschooling. We’ve tried many *many* things along the way, some have worked, some have been abominable failures. 🙂 As a die hard “researcher” we’ve never been at a loss for resources. In fact, we’ve been a little overwhelmed with resources, and I’ve spent a good … Continue reading →
In our short time as homeschoolers we’ve tried on a few different titles; eclectic, relaxed, unschooler… but none have been quite the perfect fit. Yesterday, in the middle of a conversation, on the way to see Hidden Figures with my mom and daughter the title hit me. Spark Schoolers. That is what we are. We … Continue reading →
I was just sitting here, thinking back to last New Year’s Eve. I realized, at this time last year, I was frantically scrambling trying to make a decision about pulling Hanna out of school to homeschool. She was so unhappy, and the new year in public school brings testing… lots and lots of testing. I … Continue reading →
The first floor reno continues. I’ve been feeling a little guilty because I’m not spending as much time with Hanna and her school work as I’d probably like. However, this lack created growth. 🙂 Hanna is still struggling to do anything on her own, take initiative, get out there and find the answers/solutions. It’s understandable. … Continue reading →
It all started with a simple wish to paint the living room. Which quickly snowballed into a tiny kitchen addition/remodel, which quickly snowballed into a complete kitchen renovation. How does that happen? Needless to say, life has been hectic, and dusty this week, and we’ve managed to learn a ton in the process. Who knew … Continue reading →
To say we’ve had an eventful week would be an understatement. We had plenty of regularly scheduled items as well as an impromptu field trip. Here’s the highlights. Monday, we spent the day figuring out the science of yeast, by baking bagels. It was tons of fun, and I learned a lot… oh yeah, Hanna did … Continue reading →
What a busy week we’ve had, some planned things and some seriously unplanned events this week. Let’s just dive in. Monday our bookkeeper came out to work on the books and brought her adorable little kiddo. Hanna spent the morning entertaining her. What great practice for becoming a babysitter! That night we had parent’s night … Continue reading →
I'm Jackie Lee. A secular, relaxed, eclectic, homeschooling mom of one. I love exclamation marks! emoticons and say LOL way too much.
I believe in learning.
My kiddo went to public school through grade 4. I brought her home because she'd lost the love of learning, and I believe THAT is the biggest asset one can have in life. We made it through our first year of homeschool together, had our ups and downs, and continue learning and loving the process. I'm sharing our story, as well as the things that work and don't work for us on this blog. :) Read our whole story here.
