Back To School

August is our Back-to-School month here at Home & School Mosaics. I’ve had our school shelves stocked for the past few weeks, and I keep telling myself that I need to write a blog post (or two) sharing what we’re planning to be using this year – both curriculum and supplements – but I haven’t […]

Planning to Freeze

My plan for the new school year to freeze to keep me ahead of the game. Our family is at the tail end of a summer long renovation of our home, including our kitchen, a couple of bathrooms and some major painting all throughout our home. It has been an absolute roller-coaster but completely worth […]

Imagination Station

Our Favorite Book Series to Read as a Family

Last year we were introduced to “The Imagination Station” series from Focus on the Family. There are currently 14 books in the series with more to come. These books are similar to the “Magic Tree House” series, but are geared more for a Christian audience. In these books, cousins Patrick and Beth take a trip […]

10 Things I Didn’t Expect from Homeschooling

1. I really, sincerely, honestly do enjoy being with my children all day, every day. “I couldn’t stand to be with my kids all day! When do you get ‘me time’”? If I had a quarter for each time I heard that! The truth is that my kids are pretty cool and I really do […]

Sunset before Sunrise

Whether you’re a homeschooling parent or send your kids off to be educated elsewhere, it’s that time of year again…time to dig in and get ready for the new school year. For homeschoolers, that means settling on a curriculum to start your year with. If that’s you, than you’ve already spent countless hours pouring over […]

Why I Love Classical Conversations

This past year my family joined a local Classical Conversations community.   I did not know what to expect…but I fell in love. I found an instant community of support for myself, as a homeschool mother, and my children, as homeschoolers. The moms that participate in Classical Conversations are so friendly! They always are available to […]

Three Fun Books to Help With Writing

In debating our current curriculum choices, I knew that I really wanted to focus on the basic subjects . . . Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. I had the math down; we actually do a few different things in that subject. I even do a few different things with reading. But writing is just a subject […]

These are a Few of My Favorite Things …

Although many families may have already started their school year, I know those up north don’t typically start until September. I wanted to share some of my favorite high school resources with readers this month. I have graduated three and have two in high school this school year. For Religion, I have one tried and true […]

HSM August Recipe 1

Copycat McRib Sandwich

Ahhhh…the McRib! This is one of McDonald’s restaurants’ special sandwiches that was brought to the menu, removed, and then after a promotion later on, was popular enough to bring back for a short time almost every year after its re-introduction. I loved the taste of this sandwich, but there is just something about knowing what’s […]

Beginnings are Everything!

Do you remember your first days of school?  How the year began had everything to do with how you felt about school in general and how well you did (or didn’t do) during that year. Way back in the day, the start of school signaled, for me, impending doom and enslavement.  For the next 9+ […]

Find a Different Way

Well, you knew ‘it’ would come sooner or later. You’ve hopefully enjoyed a restful summer and are ready to jump back into the school year! Yeah, me neither. But here we are. I think it’s normal for parents and kids to feel a little “cloudy” just thinking about the coming year, but if you’re dreading […]

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 […]
