Independent learning is a quality we work hard to foster in our kids. Why? Well, there’s a number of reasons. But for a mom of… …a brand new high schooler, …an inquisitive 5th grader, ..a baby who needs lots of mama’s attention, …and twins… two (count them, 2) little 7-year-olds who are still working on […]

Freelance writer Tricia Marrapodi once said that being a twin is like being born with a best friend. And it’s true. I get a front row seat to that reality every day as I play both teacher and parent to my twin boys. But just as sure as my twins are best friends, they also […]

Our second-born, Cameron, finishes 5th grade this year, and we are happy to say so much of our work educating him has given way to a healthy independence. Much of his schooling this year was hands-off for us because he’s grown into a self-motivated kiddo with enough foundational knowledge, he can really pursue his own […]

Probably one of the cheapest—and best—investments we ever made was our family pass to the local zoo. It’s a small zoo, but since it’s an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), we also have free access to hundreds of other zoos, aquariums, safaris, and nature centers all over the country. There was […]

I think we counted about 52 of them—and that was just in the first hour. (At least that’s the number I remember. We probably lost count after a while.) My son and I laid in reclining lawn chairs looking up at the dark night sky because it was the night of the annual Perseids meteor […]

Teaching kids to read can be challenging—at least for impatient folks like me. And trying to engage my kids on my own in any meaningful way when it comes to reading? Forget about it! That’s why we’ve enjoyed using All About Reading. I’m a guy who used to have a 9-to-5 cubicle job where I […]

One of the greatest misconceptions about homeschooling is: it’s too difficult to give kids a quality education in the high school years. Whenever I hear that, without fail, parent’s cite science and math as the two biggest problem areas. As soon as they hit high school Biology, parent’s often throw their hands up in disgust. […]
