At Catholic Schoolhouse, we bring families together, allowing them to share and experience immersion in a loving Catholic Community–a community that strives to grow in virtue and holiness.

Simple Ways to Celebrate Advent With Children
The Mushy Mom's Fiat
by Sasha Savoy
6M ago
Advent is such a special time of the year, but as most of us know, it’s also such a busy and draining time. Even as I type this for you, I would be lying if I said that I haven't already stressed over presents and budgets at this point. Isn’t it strange to think that our modern world has drifted us so far from the true meaning of Christmas that we can easily let the happiest time of the year fill us with stress. That is certainly not what Jesus intended. Imagine Mary preparing for the Lord’s arrival with overwhelm and stress. We do know that many new mothers are often anxious and worried but ..read more

Introducing The Ave Mama Mission: A Project from The Mushy Mom's Fiat
The Mushy Mom's Fiat
by Sasha Savoy

As parents, most of us are rushing through the motions of early mornings, hectic carpools, homework and late night sports. We go through the motions of motherhood hoping that we are crossing off the boxes, literally on our checklists and figuratively in our minds. We don’t want to miss anything or any game; and we want to make sure that our children have everything they need from healthy meals to new cleats. One thing that I find through conversations with others is that many of us often feel like we let some things slip through the cracks. Even as a stay at home mother who homeschools her ch ..read more

Five Ways to Teach Children to Believe in the Eucharist
The Mushy Mom's Fiat
by Sasha Savoy
8M ago
Growing up a cradle Catholic, I can’t say that I truly put much thought into the moment of the consecration or the moment of receiving Jesus Christ. While every child is often quite excited to finally participate in Holy Communion with the rest of their family, much of that excitement may wear off during the years. It is often times that repeating a task over and over can eventually become monotonous, and without much significance. While we would like to think that we will never grow weary in our faith, it is often possible that at some points we may. If you had asked me just a few years back ..read more

First Grade Curriculum for the Catholic Homeschool
The Mushy Mom's Fiat
by Sasha Savoy
11M ago
Today I will show you what we are doing in addition to our Catholic Schoolhouse co-op. This curriculum that I have pieced together is whole enough without the co-op and anyone can use it at as a model for their own homeschool, even non Catholics. I have to be honest about homeschooling, my favorite part may be the curriculum shopping! There is just so much good stuff out there that many people don’t even realize. Even sometimes non-homeschool people will ask me, “How do you just pick a curriculum?” I think many people are unaware of just how BIG the homeschool curriculum market is! There’s so ..read more

My Favorite Items for Homeschooling Beginner Readers

Teaching your little ones to read is such a joy! It’s so exciting when you see them finally read their first book or sound out bigger words. It’s even better when you see things just “click” and suddenly they are reading fairly well and on their own. I remember when my first child started to learn how to read in preschool - she zoomed right through it and was incredible. I knew when it came around to my second child that the learning and retention would be different, as each child is solely their own and learns on their own. While my second child didn’t read as fluently as my first did at such ..read more

Crockpot Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin Recipe

by Sasha Savoy
1y ago
Are you looking for more crockpot recipes in a world full of instapots? One of my favorite things to do is use my crockpot! Sometimes it feels like I cook the same things over and over inside of it, and sometimes it feels like it’s getting harder to find good recipes. We still don’t have an instant pot and quite honestly, they scare me a tad. I prefer to use the traditional crockpot. With our busy days, it pays to have a delicious dinner cooking down all day long. I would never be able to cook a delicious and tender meat like this without my crockpot. Recently I threw a pork loin in the crockp ..read more

Favorite Books for the Catholic Home

Today I want to share some of my favorite Catholic books with you for your home library. We love a good book stack around here and what’s better than a spiritual book stack to help you in your faith journey? Who needs a cheesy romance novel or a suspense thriller when some of the best romantic stories are within the bible and the best suspense is woven throughout the old and new testaments? Okay, I kid. I know you may love your fictional stories and who doesn’t love a good love story, but today I want to share some books that are wonderful resources for your family. Most of these books are no ..read more

Finding Your Place at Home This Year

by Sasha Savoy

Do you ever catch yourself thinking about how different things were in the old days. Sure not everything was “easier” as modern technology has made some really nifty things, but in many ways it does seem like things were easier. Mothers were in the home raising babies, baking bread from scratch and cooking three meals a day. Children ran around barefoot with all evening to play as their schedule wasn’t full with practices and lengthy hours of homework. Gardens were in bloom and homes were tidy and probably full of less, but they were cozy and well loved. Times were simple and so were people ..read more
