Truly, though, Texas is one of the best states for homeschooling! We have a large homeschool community, regulations are low, resources are abundant. It’s incredibly easy to give your kids the education they need, even in subjects they need help with or that you aren’t strong in, because there are so many options available to us.
I know many homeschool moms who struggle with math, for example. There are so many varieties of curriculum to try that come with plenty of teacher helps. I know many moms who opt to use online math classes or tutoring. I also know many moms who seek math tutoring outside their home, or trade teaching with a friend to get their kids the math help they need. And in Texas, you’re completely free to choose any or all of these options.
If you have any questions about homeschooling in Texas, just ask!

Can STUFF multiply? I don't know if it is because we homeschool, if I just have "the hoarder" gene, or if our stuff just procreates when we are not looking...but as far as our games & flashcards and puzzles go, it seems there is always too much STUFF! And yet, ... Read More
Tomorrow (Tuesday) we start our new school year. This year brings a few changes and keeps some tried and true things we've learned along the way. Princess begins 2nd grade (sort of) and Drama Queen begins Kindergarten (sort of) and Little Prince starts coloring-drawing-playing-reading-whatever-i-can-do-to-keep-him-busy. 😀 I don't know what possessed ...

Last December, we tackled and re-organized our school/play room for one of Laura's 30-day challenges. If you recall, I confessed at the time that I struggle greatly against my messy tendencies. I've never denied that. Over the last almost-a-year, we've slowly nibbled away at our messy elephant. Alas, sometimes we ... Read More
