Homeschool Rhythms: Rest Time
I know some of you might have the urge to check out right now thinking your children have aged out of this time of day but I assure you, it is for all ages…including you, mama.

How to Start a Homeschool Group (and why you should) with Danielle Easley, co-founder of Connect
For decades homeschoolers have been plagued by the question, “what about socialization” from well-meaning (and let’s be honest, sometimes not so well-meaning…) neighbors, family, and friends.

Homeschool Rhythms: Group Work
When you ask a seasoned homeschooler about structuring the day, you will often hear the same refrain: "combine as many subjects as you can."
