A Day In The Life of a Homeschooling Family – A New Series

A Day in the Life - feature

I very much enjoyed writing about the different methods of homeschooling.  As I was writing, reading and responding to comments – it reaffirmed to me how richly diverse the homeschool community is.  It’s so wonderful when you are in a space where there is no right way of doing things.  Were everything is the right way!

Isn’t that wonderful?  When it comes to the education of our children – I find that knowledge to be reassuring and comforting.

In effort to learn new things – work and grow together, I wanted to start a new series – A Day In the Life of a Homeschooler.  I’m hoping to get some participation from other homeschooling families.

I want to hear about your days.  How do you make things work?  What do you do?  Where do you go?  How do you learn?  I want to hear about schedules, non-schedules, your daily lives, favorite projects, anything you are willing to share.

I will publish posts for this series on Thursdays.  I want to hear from you.  Just email me lisa{at}squishablebaby{dot}com with your interest – and we will get you on schedule!

  2. I can’t wait to read more…I always find it fascinating. When I was laid off and had to stay home I hated it. I love my son but needed to get out of the house. I enjoy commuting to work and and listening to books on tape. I thing it’s amazing when moms can home school, I give you all tons of credit and love the ideas you have. I have gotten so many cute crafts from homeschooling websites.

    • Hey Karen,

      You know, everybody is different. Just because you don’t stay at home with Dino doesn’t mean you don’t love him. Lots and lots of women enjoy work. I think working is a wonderful thing. Career is so important – and staying connected with adults is important.

      You think it’s amazing that women can homeschool and I find it amazing that women can work. When I worked when Hadyn was young – it was a complete and utter disaster – from day one. Piles of junk piled on my head on a daily basis. It was so difficult to balance and I was so completely tired.

      You are right, homeschooling families have come up with very cute crafts and interesting ideas – but i have gotten very cute ideas from a variety of people.

      You just gave me an idea. Maybe we should do a craft series, where families can just link up or post about the cute projects they come up with. What do you think?

  3. I like the idea of a either a linky or a blog series…doing a blog carousel is tedious to get everyone involved and to post on the same day/time. I join in with Karen at Baking in a Tornado and it’s a lot of work on her part. If I had to choose between the two, I prefer a blog series so that person could really show off the craft.

  4. Lisa you did an amazing job on “The Methods to Homeschool Series”. I learned a thing or two on the Waldorf method.

    Anyways, I can’t wait for your Thursday Homeschooling Series/Link-up/Carnival (I’m happy however you do it). When I started homeschool I always wanted to sit in on a homeschool family and just observe how they did things.

    There are times now when I wish I could still do that. So I think it’s a fantastic idea. Please let me know what you decide to do. I will make myself available to be on board.

  5. So glad we connected. I’ll be reviewing all of this so that I can learn about different methods. I plan to start a more structured learning environment very soon. 🙂 Thanks for all the information.

  6. The great thing about homeschooling is that you can choose the education method that best fits your children’s needs. I was homeschooled, but now am a teacher. Homeschooling gave me educational opportunities that aren’t available to public school kids.
