5 Things You Should Never Tell a New Homeschooling Mom – These Temporary Tents
This is the time of year that you might be running into Moms who are about to start their journey, so these are great things to keep in mind.

Homeschool Makeover: Around the Couch – Hodge Podge
We don’t have a dedicated school room (or even area) at our house, so I love the way that Tricia has used room near her couch for school items.

Boring Words – Milk and Cookies
I think this would be a really fun activity for not only my children, but also with my co-op creative writing class.  Hang on.  I think “fun” should probably be on that banned words list too, huh?

Random Acts of Kindness – Daze of Adventure
My twin sisters also did this on their 42nd birthday, and I know that they really felt rewarded by the experience.  This would be fabulous to do on a small scale with your children (since they wouldn’t have to do nearly as many acts.)
