Hi, I'm Susan!You've found the musings of a messy mama, who is bumbling through the seasons of life. I'm a veteran homeschooler yet I feel like a newbie. I'm a mama to many young adults and also a toddler. We are a blended family who are living an ex-nomadic lifestyle in a rural country town. Join me as I muse my way through marriage, motherhood, homeschooling, health, nutrition and anything else that gives me cause to tap on the keyboard.
If “school” works, send them there; if it doesn’t, don’t import it. Doing public school at home is not homeschooling; if you and your kids are frustrated, irritable and fighting “school,” try some real life learning: read an exciting book aloud while they play with legos, eat popcorn, or just lounge around; go on a field trip to a hands-on museum – take photos and have each one make a mini scrapbook labeling their photos; read a biography and act out a fascinating incident in the character’s life… get back to the FUN of learning and you’ll be REALLY homeschooling!
