1937, SNOW WHITE & THE SEVEN DWARFS

Whistle While You Work

When I think of “Whistle While You Work”, I immediately think of the Disney movie, Snow White.  I love how she gets all the animals to clean and help her with the house.  It’s much like we mothers envision for our own children, isn’t it?  But then reality sets in and our picture might look […]

Four Strategies to Tackle Those Doggone Responsibilities

Now that the homeschool year is in full swing, how are you and the kids doing with your responsibilities? There’s so much to do just to keep a home running. Laundry, dishes, sweeping, mowing, emptying the trash, paying the bills, and feeding the dog. And you can’t neglect the academics. It’s enough to keep any […]

Scheduling with Kids

Summer is over and the school year is fast approaching. Is it time for you to find a schedule that works with your children? Are your kids struggling with routine and organization? I have seen some really great schedules and charts over the years. I thought each kid could benefit from an individual chart or […]

A Focus on Careers

I really enjoy hearing kids talk about, “When I grow up, I want to be _______.” Kids begin this very early in life; many will change their goal over time and as time changes. The “teacher, policeman, fireman, doctor” are all the common answers. I have heard all the varying answers from my boys over […]

Egg and Veggie Sandwiches

School is in session. Extra curricular activities are in full swing. Work schedules filling up. If you’re like me, you need easy and healthy dinner ideas. Simple to clean would be nice too, right? Here is one that is filling, easy to make, and best of all? Super cheap and only uses one pan. Egg […]

Stewardship Instead of Chores

When my children were little, we tried every kind of chore chart imaginable. We tried the rotating schedule. One child might see dishes on Monday, folding clothes on Tuesday, and toilet scrubbing on Wednesday, with everything being rotated among siblings each day. We tried breaking each chore down into manageable bites with each child responsible […]

The Un-Empty Nest

September…all around me, it seems this friend or that friend has helped their child or children get settled in at college, many of those the last child, the youngest. Many of my friends are now facing a new phase in their lives, the “empty nest.” Some parents look forward to it, some dread it. And […]

Ch~Ch~ o~ r~ e~ s?

Of course! I am a firm believer of chores. If we don’t give our children chores and responsibilities, then how can we expect them to be responsible, self-sufficient adults? Isn’t that one of the goals of raising children? This is one of our beliefs at the Clubb Academy! We are not perfect, nor is our […]

College Your Own Way

Years ago I read an article that questioned the idea of why we “put our children” on the bus, so to speak, after years of training them “not” to ride the bus. This really struck home with me; and, so far, has manifested itself into different, somewhat unique choices our children have made regarding college. […]

Homeschooling Isn’t the Problem

My wife had a conversation last night that troubles me. It wasn’t that the person or conversation was necessarily troubling, it was the idea that homeschooling has some inherently troublesome qualities. The thinking goes like this: All these people got caught up in legalism and they homeschooled…therefore the problem must be homeschooling. I hear that same argument […]

Housework . . . What’s the Point?

I don’t know about you, but sometimes doing housework feels like a losing battle. Especially with little kids in the house. You get the laundry done. Or so you think, only to discover another two loads under your daughter’s bed. Dishes get caught up, and it is discovered a few little somebodies used all the […]

Chores Help Keep the Family Running Smoothly

A few years ago, I found myself going around the house tidying up after the kids and doing all the cleaning and straightening. If something was out of place, I’d put it away.  It was easier to just do it all myself, but I was getting burned out and not a very happy camper that […]

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
