When we first started homeschooling, I completely overscheduled our family. I felt like we needed to use every curriculum, do every extracurricular activity, and constantly keep busy. It was incredibly overwhelming, especially since I had five children until nine at the time. What was I thinking?!
Here is some advice that I’ve gathered over the years to prevent this from happening again. I hope it helps you!
I have tried *many* homeschool planners over the years, and I think I finally created one that works well for our large family!

I’ll be honest with you: this has been a difficult homeschool year for our family. We have had to make many BIG changes in a short amount of time.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and chat with me about some the things we’ve been facing over the past few months.
We are in our sixth year of homeschooling and, in all honesty, our reasons for why we pulled our children out of public school five years ago and why we homeschool now are very different… and, yet, very similar.
I hope this video is encouraging to you and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
