Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Homeschool Mom Friend

What do you get for the homeschool mom who has everything? Not books – unless you’re shopping directly from her wishlist *cough*hint*cough* – because odds are she has very specific ideas on what books she wants or needs. Not bubble bath, because who’s seriously got time to soak in the tub? And odds are the …

Enjoying Maths With Smartick Method

Confession time: maths was never my favourite subject – especially once the alphabet got involved – and so it’s one area of homeschooling that I’m less than 100% confident about teaching. I recently heard about Smartick Method and was intrigued enough to try it out. I received a free subscription to Smartick Method in exchange …

An Empty Cup: When Mom Neglects Herself

Running on empty The other day, Rafe was up all night with a fever. The next morning, I took him to the doctor first thing. When Emmy swallowed a kiddies’ domino a few months ago, Jacques took her to casualty right away. When the girls were playing and Angie hurt her eye, I took her …

Learning Fun With Nessy Reading & Spelling

Probably the most exciting part of our homeschooling journey has been seeing Angie learn to read. I recently heard about Nessy Reading & Spelling from Nessy Learning, and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I received a free three-month subscription to the programme in exchange for an honest review. Reading and Spelling Fun Nessy …

{Currently} The Best Thing Ever

I had intended to put up a New Year post earlier this week, but my mind is still very much in holiday mode. We start school on Monday, and Jacques goes back to work on Tuesday, so I suppose it’s time to start switching into normal mode again. I am excited to start school. Angie …

October Roundup

I can’t believe it’s already time for my monthly roundup post. Didn’t I just do one of these the other day? I began the month with Emmy’s birthday interview. Angie took part in her first ballet concert. If you’re looking for some free printables, take a look at this Daisy Counting printable, this Banana Math …

September Roundup

I didn’t post as much as I’d planned to this month. The girls had their combined Frozen-themed birthday party so a lot of my time was spent on party preparation (and recovery!). You can see how I made their Elsa and Anna costumes. On the homeschool front, we learned the letter C, the letter A, …

{Homeschooling} Week 2 – Teaching The Letter F

Our second week of homeschool, while it still went well, was definitely tougher than the first week. Partly because I didn’t sleep well and sleep-deprivation makes everything more challenging. I think the novelty has also started to wear off for the girls. They’re enjoying calling me Teacher Mommy (Emmy) and Teacher Mel (Angie), but they’re …

{Homeschooling} Week 1 – Teaching The Letter T

August is a special month for us. It was in August 2009 that Jacques proposed. In August 2010 I became a mom. And August 2015 marks the beginning of our homeschooling adventure. I am using Reading the Alphabet with Angie and Learning the Alphabet with Emmy. Both are from This Reading Mama. I don’t want …
