Hello! Welcome to Swinging On Small Hinges!
If you are visiting for the first time from The Old Schoolhouse blog I am so grateful that you took the time to swing by Swinging On Small Hinges. I hope you enjoy your visit!
When I first started homeschooling I was SO nervous that I immediately jumped into an all-in-one video based curriculum. I was so scared that I would mess up. While we still have fond memories of that first year of homeschooling kindergarten I have since, over the last 7 years of homeschooling, loosened up a bit and have felt confident enough to branch out and try many new things. And when I say many...I mean many. Flexibility is one of the blessings of homeschooling! Thank goodness for that because we have already made a couple of changes this year!
Some of my readers know that I posted our curriculum choices for our 2017-2018 Hogwart's Themed school year not too long ago but, believe it or not, we have already made a couple of changes. (I bet you do believe it!) The problem we ran into within the first week was that I once again have tried to do too much... Does this happen to you too? We barely started and I realized that our lives are just too busy to try to do the amount of work I had scheduled in a week. Oops. Somehow it didn't cross my mind that with piano, swimming & sewing lessons, doctor appointments, and a lot of service through our church...we would not be able to do that without stress and frustration. I guess Mom is just a little too ambitious... I streamlined almost immediately and had to put aside my pre-done, home made schedules in favor of a week-by-week schedule. It just works better for our family...
Either way, without further ado, this blog post marks an "update" to our curriculum choices for 2017-2018. I would love to share what has been working great so far...and what we have tweaked (or completely changed) this school year.
