On Homeschooling

I get asked a lot about homeschooling. How we go about our day, what curriculum we use, what outside activities the girls participate in & if I think I will homeschool until the girls graduate. Those are just a few of the ones that stick out in my mind. 

So, quick post here on our homeschool, Trio Academy 🙂 

We are very, very relaxed. Like really relaxed. I do not have set hours for the girls to do school. They do not have reports to turn in or science projects to complete. Heck, sometimes I can’t even get these girls to read a book! I imagine some of you are cringing right now. 

We had an episode a couple months ago where one of the big girls had a breakdown over civics. The “teacher” part of me was like, well, sorry you are just going to have to tough it out and try harder. But thankfully, the momma part of me took over and was like, oh well, we can always try again next year. So, civics was taken out of her daily work.  I was so tired of her crying and getting upset over schoolwork. Life it too short! I remember in that moment thinking I’d rather see her smile, be her happy self, laughing and playing, just being a big kid than for her to struggle everyday over something that, come next year, she will have forgotten anyway.
