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 […]

Through the Summer Storms

With summer upon us, storms are sure to arise. Thunderstorms thrive on two basic elements: moisture and rapidly rising warm air. Both are ever present in the spring and summer months, therefore creating the perfect atmosphere for a storm. Just like summer, life has its fair share of storms as well. Lately, it seems as […]

Time for the Simple Things

Before you know it summer can be jam packed with camps, trips to the zoo, the beach, swimming lessons, vacations and more.   The calendar starts to look fuller than it did during the school year if you’re not careful. As my kids get older I become more and more aware that the time grows short.   […]

Us vs. The Mini Van

Each year our family heads off on an adventure we like to call “Family Vacation.” It’s a beautiful thing, really. Steven’s entire family treks down to Branson to spend a week with each other. No, really, they do! There are four brothers, their wives, his parents, and 15 grandkids – and we ALL spend a […]

Summer of the Beach

We live in Florida.   At my house, we are less than 30 minutes at any given time from a beach. A little longer if we want to visit the Atlantic but I could be at the Gulf of Mexico within the hour. It’s with my head hung in complete shame that I confess my youngest […]

Homeschooling on the Fly

Last summer my husband woke me up way too early for a Saturday morning. “MEG! MEG! A humpback whale died and parts of its body are washing ashore! We have to go see it!” And see it, we did. We woke the kids up, packed a picnic lunch, and headed to the beach. Sure enough, […]

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 […]
