Back-to-Homeschool Sort Of

Today I made some yummy waffles that I found online from A Reason for Spelling blog, how funny is that. Well, maybe it's not funny but I've never found a recipe on a curriculum site before. The blog's name is actually A Reason to Homeschool!

I used my mini waffle maker. It's the only one I have. I figured small house - small waffle maker. Naw, just kidding. My waffle maker is packed. When we moved we were only supposed to be here a few months to maybe six months tops, but you know how that goes.


I miss my large one but this little one actually works really good! It makes Lego-my-eggo size waffles. We used it to cook one egg too.

I love this photo of Ethan and I. I love that he still likes to take selfies with me and just sit on the couch and talk.

I ran out of make-up, not that it makes that much of a difference so sorry about my big mug in your face. Eeeks, those bushy eyebrows (I take after my grandpapa!).


I'll be having an Easy Grammar Plus review coming soon! I'm really liking this one. I used this with Josh a long time ago so I was happy to get this one from the Homeschool Review Crew!

Easy Grammar Plus; Teacher's Edition

Students learn grammar faster and easier when they're actually writing and editing texts; this hands-on approach to grammar is just one of the reasons why Easy Grammar is so successful. Utilizing the prepositional approach, students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. Concepts are reviewed and introduced throughout the school year; this, accompanied with reviews helps to ensure engaged, mastery learning for all students. This comprehensive workbook covers nouns, verbs, common mistakes (fragments, run-ons, etc.), phrases, clauses, adverbs, pronouns, interjections, conjunctions and the other major aspects of grammar. Tests and answers included. 679 pages, softcover. Grades 7 & up.

Ethan's Government Course

Exploring Government, 2016 Updated Edition--Curriculum Kit

The Notgrass Company Exploring Government curriculum is a one-semester (half-credit) high school course that covers the government of the United States from its beginning to the present with a special emphasis on the Biblical pattern for government and the U.S. Constitution. Students will learn about federal, state, and local government and become better equipped to understand our country's government as they learn about contemporary issues facing our nation today.

The Exploring Government textbook includes 75 lessons. At the beginning of each unit, an introduction, list of books used in the unit, project literature assignments, and any additional assignments are laid out; these overarching assignments are broken up into daily tasks given at the end of each day's reading.

I need to write a little more about what we are doing for high school. What are you all using?

  1. ahhh...the love of back-to-school days! We are still trying to find our little rhythm, but it's coming together slowly. Such a cute little waffle maker!
