About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

7th Grade LA.

Have uploaded the Sources and Week 1 lesson plan for 7th grade Language Arts.

Just to let you know that we are following some of this, thanks to your guidance.

Yesterday, I was still putting thoughts together, so I had my 7th grader read "The Speckled Band" and answer questions found online.

Today, we started on "Tom Sawyer." As we began the exercises ("Discuss Tom in your writing journal"), DD got excited, "I get a JOURNAL!" So, she found one she liked in my supplies and wrote a page about Tom Sawyer.

It's working well, here on Day 1.

Great to hear it! My son has been really enjoying this, too. :)

And my 5th grader asked for a Journal too. She has weak language arts skills so that was a real thrill for me.
