I know sometimes we’ve blown it as moms and mom guilt can be real but today we are going to ignore that voice that’s telling us that you are not doing enough, you are messing up your kids life, you are failing them, you are stopping their dreams, you are a horrible mother, you are making your kids, your life. You are too over protective, you need to spend more time playing with them and less time cleaning or working, you need to be more organized, you are ruining their education and future, the list can go on and on.

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. This is just phase one of my decluttering process. I will do a second and third purge. My goal is to truly live with what we absolutely need and love. Click here to read more….
One of the things I love about homeschooling is going on field trips. You are not limited to how many field trips you can take in a school year. We are part of an amazing co-op called Urban Stars where moms come up with amazing field trips to take our children on.

Math is the only subject I do not incorporate in my unit studies. I have a math curriculum for each one of my children. 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
I like to declutter my environment at least 4 times a year. I like to declutter around the changing of the seasons. I will declutter a week before or after the new year, in the spring time, summer time, and in the fall. I believe every season brings new changes and new revelations. Click the link to read more……
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).
That is probably fine, if you are homeschooling 1 or even 2 children, but when you are homeschooling more 2 than children, you probably want to keep it simple for your children and for yourself. click the link to read more…..
Trust God, and then let go if you are feeling stressed out, overwhelmed or anxious that it is taking to long for your dreams or prayers to manifest.
Letting go is not giving up the dream. Letting go is allowing. Allowing God to be God and you to be content in your current circumstances. God will work out all of the details for you. He is working everything out for your good. To read more ….click the link.
