Where Did All This Clutter Come From?

Today I want to give you an update on my journey to becoming a minimalist. Wow! you never know just how much stuff you have in your environment until you pull out everything in your closed spaces like your drawer, bags, cabinets, garage, closets and storage areas.

This week I took six bags of stuff to the Goodwill and 2 bags to throw away, in the trash. All of that was hidden in my closed spaces inside of my home.

My little ones who are not reading yet or not reading fluently do have a reading and writing curriculum. In this blog I use real photos take a look……Click the link

Homeschool Curriculum Made Easy!

Today I want to share with my homeschooling community how I keep my homeschool curriculum simple, fun, engaging, challenging and easy.
I used to think you had to have a curriculum for all 8 subjects. One for math, spelling, writing, history, science, art, reading and english(language arts, grammar).

Yes I was a homeschooling novice, when I homeschooled my daughter in the kindergarten, I dedicated the basement room to my daughter classroom and decorated the walls like her traditional classroom setting.
